Mother’s Day Tablescape Blog Hop

Today, we’re excited to share our Mother’s Day Tablescape Blog Hop!

A special thank you to Sandra of Charmed Crown Blog and Taylor of Uniquely Taylor Made for hosting this event.

If you’re new here, welcome, we’re thrilled to have you.

As some of you may know, we’ve been making lots of progress on my childhood home, Loblolly Manor. We are days away from finishing not only the laundry room makeover as part of the One Room Challenge.

So, it seemed all but serendipitous I would be invited to participate in this Mother’s Day Blog Hop while we were at Loblolly working on the dining room of all things!

It’s been a lot of fun spending extra time with my Mom sourcing items for each room, shopping at our favorite stores and dreaming up new ideas for each space.

Selecting a Tablescape Color Palette

We’ve been using mostly whites, grays, camels and pops of black in each space at Loblolly.  I asked my Mom how she wanted the dining room table dressed and she immediately responded, “Lots of white and a bit of lavender.”

My Mom and I were so excited to find this French linen table runner because it helped to set the tone for the entire house.

We found one set of these dishes at an antique store. My aunt found the other set while she was on vacation.

We picked up the white chargers at Michaels and the place mats are actually paper!

You can find the lavender at Hobby Lobby.

Creating a Lovely Tablescape 

The dining room table is one of my favorite pieces at Loblolly because my Mom came up with the design idea, my Dad built the table and I painted the table.

It was a lot of work but it felt like each one of us was giving their best gifts!

A Cozy Seating Space 

The seating bench was actually an old prayer bench we found at a thrift store which my bestie S helped us complete.

My Mom’s only request for the dining room was that all 12 of us be able to sit and eat at the same time.  I’m excited to say we accomplished that request!

Adding Vintage and Thrifted Finds 

We created the chalkboard from a $5 broken mirror and most of the time we use it as a menu board.

The chalkboard used to be featured over the dining room buffet.

But we recently decided to add a hutch to the buffet. That way, my Mom could display her collection of ironstone and tarnished silver.

I have to say, of all the projects we’ve completed for this space, adding the hutch was definitely a pleasant surprise.

Especially, given we had to marry two completely different pieces to order create this look.

Just off the dining room is the entry which has been given a bit of a refresh too.

Thankfully, there was enough room for this painted buffet we’ll be using as a drink station. We have a lot to celebrate this weekend…

…like one of the sweetest, kindest, most loving ladies to ever walk the planet!
