Mother's Day Ideas | Gifts, Table Settings & Recipes

Most of my customers are Mothers, and my entire team is comprised of Mothers.  I feel like we Mothers are a utilitarian type.  We also don't buy too much for ourselves.  So, in general, I think what a Mother wants from a gift is for it to be beautiful and useful.  Also seasonal.  I know my Mom would personally always be happy with something to pot or put in the ground.   I went through and picked out some of my personal favorites that I use season after season, and that think will make your Mother, Mother-in-Law, Daughter, Daughter-in-Law or Grandmother feel loved.

This classic service tray now comes in a smaller Medium size in addition to the Large (pictured).  It makes a great tray for displaying small bites or on a side table or desk with stationery, a framed photo or a candle.   The medium size is $98 which makes it a bit more affordable, too.

Another favorite of mine that I use all of the time is the Classic Cream & Sugar Set.  I use it mostly for flowers, but of course you can use it as it is intended.  They make the most lovely sweet little containers for flowers, berries, herbs and everything.

The Creamware Platters have been restocked.  They are a favorite all year long, but the creaminess is especially Springy to me.  Great for entertaining and for display, as you can see on our walls and hutch.

Everyone can always use a fresh set of napkins.  These hand block print are custom designed and made just for us.

If you are hosting Mother's Day, fill your table with potted plants and flowers to take home.  This sort of Garden Themed table is easy to put together from pots you already have.

Each setting is tied with a Grosgrain Ribbon and a Garden Tool tag as the place card.

I love this stationery suite because it is rustic enough to use to label your gardening supplies or make out your to-do list in the garden, but still elegant enough to use on your table.  I also love it on a gift- maybe a potted plant or a favorite packet of seeds.

We have beautiful ribbons to wrap up your gifts.  Even tying up a store-bought potted plant with a bow and a ribbon will make a beautiful gift.

This soft blue is my favorite.  I wear this wrap all of the time - especially on chilly spring mornings and evenings.  It always goes with my very basic wardrobe (mostly denim, white and navy) and gives me a bright and fresh accent.

If you send a gift from my store, we'll include a handwritten gift card for your recipient.  Mothers love handwritten cards ; )
