Counting Flowers On The Wall...or rather the Table (T)

Last week I created a tablescape using these beautiful roses I purchased and put in a pretty glass vase.

The day after my post I received a special delivery from our Son, Daughter in-law and Grandson of this mixed arrangment with gorgeous roses in a hand painted vase as a Mother's Day gift.

Two days later our daughter came home to visit for Mother's Day and she brought this bouquet of  roses in beautiful shades of peach!  She placed them in my crystal vase which created a very elegant look.
Now I was perplexed as to what I was going to do with all the arrangements!

I decided to  transfer the red roses into this ceramic vase and placed it on the wood top by the stairs and kitchen area.  The roses took on a whole new look in this vase!

Sunday morning I was prepping the table as our daughter made breakfast.  I chose these placemats to play up the colors in the arrangements.  If you read my tablescape post I had shared the Creme brûlée French toast but those plans got nixed, and we decided on blueberry pancakes, scrambled eggs and sea-salt bacon!

I used a syrup I found at T.J. Maxx which consists of Vermont Maple Syrup, infused with caramel and sea-salt and it was delightful on the pancakes.

I staged the table with both floral arrangements.

After breakfast I decided that son's arrangement would stay in the kitchen. 

I moved daughter's arrangement to the mantel which graced it beautifully.

I've been blessed with some gorgeous tulips now for the past two weeks. 

Spring has come on in full force and I'm loving each minute of it! 
My gardens are coming alive and I do occasional posts on my other blog Sit With Me In My Garden

Have a great week!


  1. Wow so many pretty flowers and delicious food.

  2. Liz, the same dilemma of so many flowers came to my home as well! What a wonderful dilemma to have. Your Mother's Day breakfast sure sounds delicious with caramel maple syrup! We had pancakes for breakfast as well. I've really enjoyed seeing your beautiful tulips. They are quite lovely. I need to plant more in wire cages this fall. Have a great week. ♥

  3. Oh to be a recipient of all those beautiful flowers! How wonderful, Liz! You had a great Mother's Day, and that's what it's all about!

  4. Yum sea salted caramel pancake syrup. I will have to look for that at my TJ Maxx. Yum! Love all your beautiful flowers. So pretty. Have a good week.

  5. All those roses are gorgeous Liz! It's great to see your beautiful garden coming alive!

  6. You are a very special mom to get so many flowers! It looks like you have great fun with it all. I love where you decided to use them. Your table looks very inviting!
