I have learned that a lady looks her most gorgeous in subtle pink lighting. Pink is such a soothing yet playful color. So, setting a Mother’s Day table I knew I wanted to put on the pink! An intimate spot in the side garden of Paula’s house with all the snap dragons and foxgloves in bloom was the perfect place to do my own version of a “pretty in pink” table fit for a queen.
Think outside the dining room when you are decorating a table for a formal or informal meal. Over the years, I have set tables in bedrooms, cornfields, garages, and even in one master bathroom suite (don’t ask). This Mother’s Day luncheon table was no exception. As May is such a beautiful month in Savannah with all our spring flowers in full bloom, the north garden at Paula’s home offered the perfect perch. A short distance from the chicken coop with a beautiful view of the river and smack in the middle of a cutting garden! What more could a girl or his mother ask for!
Here’s what I used:
To all the Mother’s out there and especially Paula and my own mom, Sandra, this table is for you. Happy Mother’s Day!

I love reading about your family and seeing your pictures. I respect the fact that you are teaching your son's family values because so much of that seems to be going by the wayside anymore..maybe someday we will meet and by that time your son's may even have their own cooking show.lol..wishing you lots and lots of love from this country girl's kitchen to Brooke Deen's kitchen of love.

Love this idea. I want to do this for my sister n law for the new addition of the family. What a wonderful way to celebrate a new baby in the family.
