Last Sunday was Mother's Day and we had a crowd coming over to celebrate with us. I'd planned on keeping it simple, and using paper plates outdoors. But Sugarwings was spending the day with me and she LOVES a special occasion as much as I do. She wanted to do something nice for all the mothers, and that seemed like a good thing to encourage.
We moved the kitchen island out of the way, set up a folding table with extra chairs, got out the pretty table cloths, and I let Sugarwings set the table.
One of her special touches, was a colorful ribbon around the plates where moms would be sitting. (no that isn't Grammy hitting the wine bottle early in the day, that is actually sparkling water, although, I did switch over to sparkling wine at the dinner party)
Her Hippy Chick mama loves colorful things and rainbows, so instead of white roses, she got a fiery rose in a red vase, and an LED light stick that changed colors as it flashed in place of a candle.
Sugarwings took all of the photos after too.
Being able to set a nice table is a good skill to have. Our dishes, silverware and glasses are all mis-matched, but my grandfairy knows where each piece goes and makes it look nice even with the hodge podge we use.
It is always cute to see her use this tip, and make the a-okay sign with her hands to remember where the bread plates and drinks go.
Her finishing touch before guests arrive was to sprinkle some rose petals up the walkway.
Which was 100% her idea, she loves the over the top flourishes to make things special.
Rose petals lined the way to her mommie's seat.
Twinkle looked a bit confused by the whole thing, but will follow her girl on any adventure.
