We all survived another week! YEA. And it’s Mother’s Day weekend! I hope you have something fun and/or relaxing planned! I’m planning on sleeping in (fingers crossed until at least 8 am!) so I’m a happy camper. :) This pic was taken on Mother’s Day last year. I’m so grateful for these 3 today and every day. I landed on this old Mother’s Day post a few weeks ago and it made me smile. It also made me feel really proud of myself for surviving all the years when my 3 were little! If you are in that stage of motherhood with young kids I have deep respect. You are doing amazing. Take it one day at a time. :) Two years ago on Mother’s Day I wrote a post titled 10 Habits of Happy Moms. I wanted to link to it again in case you are a mom who is struggling right now (we’ve all been there). I’m certainly no expert on parenting! These are just things that have helped me enjoy motherhood (and life in general!) over the years.
Aside from sleeping in, I’m so happy that I’m not cooking this weekend. Double score! Always my #1 wish on Mother’s Day. I do have a pretty table set up though! You know.. for my take out. ;)
I wanted to set up something fun that would work for Spring/Summer get togethers. I can’t wait to entertain again this summer! It’s always so fun to have people over.. even if it’s just a few girlfriends for a quick lunch!
I fell hard for these gold planters and love that they come in two sizes! I put some faux pink peonies in the small planter for my living room mantel (shared that in my last post). I loved the look so much I did the same thing for my dining room table. You could obviously get this same look with real flowers too. Any flowers would be pretty! I love faux flowers because I can leave this up for months! When we aren’t entertaining the dining room looks pretty to walk by and I don’t have to worry about watering/killing/replacing the flowers.
But my favorite part of this tablescape? Aside from the fact that I don’t have to keep flowers alive? These jute chargers! Aren’t they so fun for summer!? I absolutely love them and they were such a good deal! I’ve seen so many similar pricey options and kept hunting for the same look for less. Target for the win once again! It was a happy day when I landed on these on-line. (The plates were from PB but sold out.)
These pretty pink pillows have been making the rounds in my house. They work well in every room and I’m tempted to pick up another set!
The only thing stopping me is my pillow closet. I’ve been organizing ALL the pillows around here and it’s causing a serious pause on my growing collection. I’m going to have to donate a few more before I’m allowed to buy a few more.
At least I can admit I have a problem. #pillowsarelife #cantstopwontstop
Such a simple tablescape that’s perfect for Spring/Summer dining!
This pretty table might just inspire me to cook something after all.
But not this weekend. :)
All dining room sources are linked below! Along with some Anthro favorites. Everything at Anthro is 20% off this weekend! You’ll recognize a few staples from my house in the collage..
My new office rug is also 20% off this weekend!
Along with this beloved rattan-wrapped stool. I have the graphic tees and little pineapple spoon rest sitting in my cart. I’m also obsessed with the orange plates/bowls in the second collage and that Just Peachy rug is calling my name! Too many cute things for summer!
I might need to clear out a few more cupboards. ;)
Enjoy your Mother’s Day weekend everyone!
