Lunch with Mum

 Today I had lunch with Mum! She has been staying with me for a few days while Mr FH is away. I thought as it was Thursday I would set a nice table for our lunch. I set up a small table in the family room which was lovely and sunny at first.

I used a soft pink and green cloth to start with then layered some pale blue, buttercup yellow and pink tableware. The flatware was a bargain at $5 a few weeks ago but somehow I don't think it would stand up to a big steak!

I had these gorgeous organza bags (pink and blue) so I popped little jars of coloured lollies into them then placed them in the bowls. 

These lovely speckled eggs were left over from Easter so I added them to the table for an after treat.
(The yellow one wasn't quite this bright - don't know what happened there LOL)

My Mum is a real Cup-of-Tea Lady so we used my soft green teapot and creamer. I added some fun teaspoons my friend had given me for Christmas a few years ago - aren't they cute!

I have a few large heart chocolates that I have ready for the baby shower so I used one near my jug of roses.

How nice is it to share your lunch with someone special.......

I love all your pretty pastels together! The flatware with pale blue handles really adds a nice touch. I know your mother enjoyed the special table!

Pastel & white goes hand in hand. Sweet & lovely, just like mother & daughter.

Cute with the lollies thought. Great job...

That is SO very nice that you would do that for your Mom....uh, Mum. I like that word better, actually! I know she appreciated your effort so much. It's sweet when parents and their children can get together to enjoy one another's individual company like that! Please give your darling Mum regards from Lee's Summit, MO (USA)!
