Mother’s Day is just weeks away and I’m excited to share easy entertaining ideas with you today. While I have always enjoyed entertaining, with 3 kids, I try to keep it as effortless as possible using staples, easily accessible flowers and sourcing from our own home rather than a store to save valuable time.

I usually purchase Mother’s Day flowers at grocery stores like Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods, which means that I never know what I’m designing until I make a trip to the store, which can be a little limiting at times. However, there are a few staples you can almost always count on – white hydrangea and roses are among them, so you never have to fret. They make a great base for any arrangement!

I arranged these flowers for Mother’s Day using hydrangea, peonies {but you can substitute roses}, chamomile and chrysanthemum. However, anything thin and wispy will work in their place including the always accessible babies breath. You can watch this video to see how I arrange flowers here! The method is exactly the same, I just broke up large heads of hydrangea by inserting chamomile between it’s blooms.

One of my favorite staples they you may have noticed I use frequently is a cylinder vase. It offers a little height requiring fewer flowers, but not so much height you can’t see one another across the table. Once your brunch is over, it becomes a beautiful accent on a kitchen island, end table or coffee table.

You can integrate photographs of your mom, mother-in-law and/or grandma to create beautiful one-of-a-kind Mother’s Day Decorations using my easy diy photo centerpiece idea I’ve been doing for years. I first created these for a client’s 40th birthday party, used them for a friend’s grandparent’s landmark birthday and my brother and sister-in-law’s rehearsal dinner.

To recreate this look, simply print your favorite photographs {5×7} professionally and insert into a vase filled with water before creating your Mother’s Day flower arrangement.

This is the perfect way to use your Mother’s Day pics! I’m going to start a tradition of taking photos with the girls each Mother’s Day, as I realized I, like my mother, are in very few photographs.
