We were sitting in Church Sunday morning and there was a young girl next to us with a brand new little one. Instantly I felt that ache deep within me for another little one of my own. My oldest son turns to me and says, “Mommy, can we please have another one of those?” “You just read my mind, little buddy!” I thought. And if that baby fever wasn’t hot before it’s certainly on fire now. Now if only I could get my husband on board, haha. Motherhood is messy but beautiful. It’s giving and exhausting but rewarding and exciting. It’s more than I ever imagined, but it’s the greatest gift I’ve ever been given.
“Everything has changed and yet, I am more me than I’ve ever been.”
Can you believe that we are almost into the middle of May? And I don’t know why, but this year Spring seems almost as busy as the holiday season. Between finishing up the living room, then jumping right into the dining room then to our major outdoor overhaul…all on top of our normal day to day craziness. This Mama is feeling like a vacation is in order, haha.
Speaking of Mama needing some R&R, in honor of Mother’s Day I’ve teamed up with some blogger and insta-friends for a fun Mother’s Day Tablescape Theme. We don’t have big plans for Mother’s Day this year, but I know for sure there will be good food and lots of relaxation with my people.
For my tablescape I wanted to keep everything minimal. My budget was microscopic, haha. After all these indoor and outdoor projects I wanted to make sure I used what I had on hand and didn’t go out and spend a bunch of money. I decided to create a very simple tea party theme. I used all of my blue and white plates and ironstone pieces. I think all my antique pieces compliment the new dining room so well. It feels very cottage[y] to me and I am truly loving it!
Scroll on down to see my tablescape and be sure to check out all of the other tablescapes from my friends!! And to all you Mamas out there, Happy Mothers Day! You have the most beautiful job in the world!
“Motherhood is messy and challenging and crazy and sleepless and giving and still unbelievably beautiful.”
If you caught my post on Instagram on Sunday then you know my Mother in Law dropped off lilacs from her garden. Y’all they are divine. I wish I could have had them when I took pictures, but you better believe they are center stage right now and I hope they will last until Mother’s Day.
I really love all of the different layers and textures together.
I decided to mix faux and real greenery, again because I was trying to use what I had already on hand. The eucalyptus is dried from the fall and the little blue bells are from our garden. The faux greenery is from Hobby Lobby and Ikea
There’s just something so special about purple and green together, don’t you think?
Thanks again so much for stopping by don’t forget to check out all of these beautiful tables. Blessings Friends!
