Mother's Day Checklist
You've gotten Mom a gift ... and written her a card. Next step is to make sure that she does not have to make dinner or wash a dish. Her'e's our checklist for Mother's Day dinner.
Incorporate heirlooms and memories of grandmas ... on this table, we use my Grandmother's tablecloth and favorite flowers. You could even include framed photographs on the table.
To supplement, we used familiar tableware pieces to recall happy memories around the table.
The color palette is feminine and springy, with some gold to mark a celebration.
For this Mother's Day dinner in quarantine, we ordered my mother's favorite cuisine for takeout -- Indian. It was exactly what she wanted.
For dessert, almond cake with lilacs. A family favorite flavor with fresh pressed lilacs. Recipe here.
Out East rosé ... pretty in pink for Mom.
Big Basket earrings ... filled with more flowers.
Pink & White Barrette ... to match the napkins.
