A Dutch Mother's Day Brunch (T)

Since Mother's Day and tulip time fall together nicely here in Michigan I decided to create a Mother's Day tablescape featuring tulips!

Gorgeous yellow tulips!

 I found this Nutcracker Dutch girl last Christmas at JoAnn's.

I knew I'd use her for a spring tablescape!

I wanted this to be for a morning brunch and I went with colors on my table that are often found in tulips, red, white and yellow! 

 Notice the Dutch clogs.

I got these in Holland, Michigan last spring.  They are a child's sized Dutch clog.  

I got my red through some gorgeous roses and my white from these daisy like flowers (forgot the name).

 We are greening up outdoors. 

I have tulips and daffodils getting close to blooming!  I think by Mother's Day they'll be opened up!

Wishing you all a

  7. Liz,
    The cheerful red, yellow and white color palette
    is breath freshening after your lengthy Winter!
    I can definitely see the span of our Season differences.
    While you await the Tulip blooms, I'll be watching
    our first rose blossoms.
    Happy Mother's Day!

  8. Liz, so very charming! Any mother would enjoy this! I love tulips but ours are long gone (sigh) -- irises are blooming now.

  9. What a fun, festive table! It's tulip festival week (or maybe was last week). This is perfection!
