Everything In This Slideshow

  • Overall Tabletop Design

    This Mother's Day Brunch tabletop design is all about sleek white dishes, beautiful flowers, and springtime-fresh colors: shades of lavender, lilac, and lime. The overall feel is refreshing and breezy, just like the season.

  • Table Setting

    Start with crisp white table linens and add a green fabric or paper "gift wrap" runner. For the place settings, keep things simple: white dishware, green accent plates, and simple wine and water glasses set atop lavender cocktail napkins.

  • Floral Accent

    Set a single purple-hued flower in the center of each setting. Attach a place card to each stem with ribbon.

  • Simple Centerpiece, Part I

    You'll need two contemporary white vases and a sleek white pitcher and gravy boat for your centerpiece design. Fill the vases with lavender, lilac, or grape hyacinth.

  • Simple Centerpiece, Part II

    For the gravy boat, add green willow or moss balls along with flowers in shades of purple.

  • Candle Details

    Add purple tea or votive candles along the length of the runner.

  • Add a Photo

    Personalize the table with a framed photo of Mom or Mom and kids.

  • Embellished Vase

    Embellish one of the vases with her first initial using lime green die-cut letters.

  • Paper Replacements

    To keep things affordable (or even just to avoid doing dishes), you can replace the ceramic dishware with sturdy paper dishes in rich purple, white, and lime green.

    Spa-Decor Details

    Stack bars of purple soap and embellish with twine and purple blossoms. Or group spa products such as lavender aromatherapy candles and purple guest soaps together on sleek white trays. Fill glass jars with fresh or dried lavender stems and bath salts.
