Purple Pansies Transferware Tablescape

I hope all of you Moms had a very Happy Mothers Day!  I did!
  Shawn and I had our Mothers over for brunch and he made us all Swedish pancakes as the main course, a favorite from his childhood and now one of our family favorites - and now also making me hungry for some just by thinking about them.


I set the table with this set of 8 Royal Cauldon Purple Transferware Pansy Plates that I recently got in and had been saving just for Mothers Day.  Sometimes when I get a set of plates or dishes in, I like to use them once or twice before putting them for sale in my Etsy shop.  These plates are hand painted with a scalloped, embossed border....perfect for Spring and early Summer.   




I used a purple, gold and brown paisley shawl as a table runner 


The lavender pressed glass tumblers and gold and green Mexican goblets bring out the colors of the plates.

One of my sponsors sent these napkin rings to me a couple of years ago.  I haven't used them very often but the yellow butterflies and purple, green and yellow berries were perfect for the table.

   I mixed silk pansies with berries and wildflowers and put them in a bamboo handled basket for a super simple centerpiece.



As a Mom, one of the things I'm thankful for is a good sense of humor.  I really don't know how people can get through life without laughing at it...I couldn't.  Fortunately my kids and hubby have great senses of humor and I completely appreciate and love that about them all.  This is one of the cards I got from the kids.  



Have a great week!
