Happy Momma's Day

This Momma's Day I decided I needed to do something girlie to celebrate. Something that involved punch and crepe paper and fancy silverware. I decided that my mother and grandmother and aunt and sister needed that too. So together we threw ourselves a garden themed Mother's Day Luncheon on my Maw's screened-in porch .... Mom made her yummy quiche, Maw provided the venue and a lovely spinach salad and a delish citrus punch, Judea brought fab french bread and Auntie Tei headed the clean-up crew. I (of course) took on the decorations and our cupcake dessert... I think we still have a few left, want to join us?


Crepe paper flowers, a nice inexpensive, easy to make and old fashioned alternative to the real thing...


The table, all set with Maw's adorable ruffled table cloth (see where I get it?)


The place settings, complete with pink party favors...


A large vintage crepe paper decoration hanging overhead...


When I ran out of crepe paper flowers to fill this bowl I used some thin pink vintage napkins to fill in the gaps....I think they almost look like paper themselves they are so thin...



When it was all over, we were very full, and very happy just to be together, celebrating being mother's and having mother's and blooming right where we are planted.
It was a lovely day...

Happy Momma's Day!
