Free Mother's Day Printables

My talented friend Cris McGrath from Crissy's Crafts set up a gorgeous display for Mother's Day that I've been so excited to share with you all. Cris used Amanda's Parties To Go's
FREE Mother's Day Printable Set and created a lovely poolside soiree that I hope will provide wonderful inspiration for your own Mother's Day celebrations this weekend. Enjoy the photos.... details to follow at the end of the post.

Cris says, I created a rich and vibrant Pre Mother's day Lunch. Amanda's gorgeous contemporary printable patterns were the perfect combination to add style and color to our lunch. 

I wanted to have a summery feeling so I set the dinning table by the pool. To match with the printable, I made two no-sew table runners using coordinating fabric and ribbon. The runners were used as place mats. Lots and lots of colorful lanterns were a huge element to bring the summery feeling to our outdoor setting. 

Using the Mother's Day printable coordinating paper patterns, I embellished the vases to display big silk gerberas daisies and gorgeous flower balls that I borrowed from a friend. 

Before lunch, the guests enjoyed tomato basil bruschetta, antipasto kabobs and fresh fruit along with mint lemonade. For lunch, we served salad in parmesan bowl, grilled salmon and vegetable rice medley. 

The sweet table was simple and didn't have too many sweets. Using a flower trellis as backdrop, I hung the gorgeous Mother's Day banner. The sweets include brigadier (brazilian fudge), mini cheesecakes, flower pops and marshmallow flower cupcakes. 

I found the perfect wrapping paper at Target and used to bring color to the sweet table. I found the napkins at Target and used them as coasters for the mint lemonade glasses. The brigadiers cups, lemonade glasses and treat bags were embellished the using the coordinating paper patterns.

We set up a Planting Station for the children and parents to enjoy some spring planting. The children also had fun making a hand flower keepsake for their mommies.

Each mommy received a Bath and Body Works hand soap and a cute box full of kisses. It was a fun and relaxing afternoon surround by a beautiful setting.
