Decorating the Mothers Day Table
Tablecloth & Napkins
The tablecloth helps to set the mood for your finished table setting and to determine just how formal it will be. Let the cloth generously overhang the table. Use two, a drop or under cloth that hangs just to the floor, with the tablecloth chosen for the meal, over it. For china with patterns, use solid colors for your tablecloth such as white damask, batiste or linen. For china without patterns,choose a patterned tablecloth to provide a much needed mix and match.
Use your napkins as decorations, they provide a fun way to dress up your table! A few napkin decorating ideas: A fresh daffodil tied with lace; A silk rose tucked under a woven ribbon; cinnamon sticks and eucalyptus leaves wrapped with raffia; artificial cherries accented against gingham checks; A violet bunch with a narrow picot ribbon.&39;
