Lunch on Mother's Day

This week I have set a pretty little Mother's Day table.
I love this cute wire cake stand - I was going to use the cover too but the flowers were just a little too high.

I saw these cute coffee mugs in a shop last week and as they were 'my' colours I just had to have them!!
I thought they made a great start to my Mother's Day table. 

I already had the lovely cupcake plates so I layered them with some blue and white dinner plates.

I used two different sets of flatware - one pink and one blue.

For the napkins I decided to use craft fabric in different colours. I had a bag of blue toned fabrics given to me by a very dear old friend ages ago so dived in there and found four pretty pieces. I also was lucky enough to find a conpleted patchwork square my friend had sewn but not used so I used this for my centrepiece.

I'm joining all the wonderful tea parties around blogland on Tuesday so hope you all enjoy the many Mother's Day tables.
