Step By Step Tutorial For This Lovely Mother’s Day Place Setting
There are some basic element for every place setting that we are going to walk you through. Even if you are new to this whole thing, no worries! It’s going to be fun!
First start with a place mat or charger plate. A place mat is usually fabric rectangle or square and a charger plate is an over-sized plate that is typically plastic or nice ceramic and comes in lovely colors and designs. This basically grounds the place setting and puts some additional color behind it too. They come in all sorts of different styles so choose one that best matches Mom’s personality or the theme of your brunch and go with that.
Next comes the plate. It is good to go with a neutral plate so you can have some more design and color choices for your napkin and dessert plates. If you want a more elegant look for Mom, you can choose a silver rimmed one like the one we used for our place setting.
Then comes the napkin. Let your creativity flow when it comes to napkins. There are a ton of different colors and patterns out there. Because we went so bold with the plates, we went with a silver napkin for this look to tie in the place mat and the silver rimmed plate. It’s also a satin napkin so it adds a little touch of elegance that we know Mom will love on her special day.
Then comes the bread and butter and dessert plates. We just went with dessert for this one! The bread and butter plate typically goes to the upper left of the main plate and the dessert plate goes just above the main plate. Since dessert is coming first for Mom, we placed it on top of the main plate for her to enjoy her treat as soon as she sits down. We went with bold and cute patterned plates from Kate Spade!
Then add in your favorite desserts! We love these ombre dipped cherries as part of this adorable Mother’s Day place setting. We love the trio of chocolate strawberries too that are covered in pink sprinkles, chocolate chips and a white chocolate drizzle. They are so cute!
Those cherries though!
Add in you favorite silverware. Fork goes on the left of the plate, knife and spoon go on the right. Remember the knife always faces the plate so you don’t have to worry about cutting yourself. Then add your favorite glass. A wine or water glass will do great. Add a straw for a festive flair!
Add in some roses and a card and you have a fun modern Mother’s Day place setting!
There you have it an adorable Mother’s Day place setting that you can do in minutes.
