Show mom how much you care by decorating the scene of the celebration with these creative ideas.
For a fresh-looking party table that makes cleanup easy, start with an inexpensive roll of white paper. Use painters' tape to hold the paper down, and decorate with garden-inspired rubber stamps: a hydrangea blossom (blue ink) and a pair of butterflies (red and pink).
Make a cherry blossom branch fashioned into a place card to greet your guests. Press the stem into a small floral frog, about the diameter of a quarter. Wrap a piece of pale-green grosgrain ribbon around the base, and secure with double-sided tape. Cut a leaf from a similar shade of vellum, write the invitee's name, and attach to the side of the branch using a hot-glue gun.
Fashion your Mother's Day celebration table with one (or several) of these pretty pedestals made from cake stands. They raise decorations and sweets high, elevating offerings in every sense. The displays here -- small stands atop large ones -- show off pots (actually teacups and votive holders) of miniature African violets and stacks of cookies whose ribbons repeat the colors of the flowers.
