This simple Mother’s Day table setting is composed of several individual flower arrangements that double as place cards and triple as take home favors!

Collectively, they fill the table, yet still leave plenty of room for delicious things like bacon cheese puffs and a 5 minute strawberry tart.

The arrangements were composed of everyday flowers available at the grocery store. Learn all my key tips for how to shop for Trader Joe’s Flowers, as well as the secrets to Be Your Own Florist!

How to Make these Mini Mother’s Day Table Arrangements

  1. I always start working with the largest blooms first. Fill a vase, mug or glass with water and then cut the stem at an angle and place it in the front of the “vase”.
  2. Next add stock to give it some height! I use stock in various ways – you’ll see I left the lighter stock as is, where it comes to a point at the top, but I cut the peach stock just above a bloom making it appear larger {and shorter}.
  3. I used wax flower to fill in.

Playing with flowers is fun, there’s no perfect way to create one and each one is unique. I added a mother/daughter photograph using bamboo skewers {found at the grocery store}, cardstock and a hot glue gun. Just cut your bamboo skewer to the proper height. So easy!
