For this Mother’s Day, I decided to combine the beautiful, baby pink Angelique tulips in my garden (they are reminiscent of roses when they open up and smell like honey) with my great-grandmother’s crystal sherry glasses and our silver baby cups. Theses are cherished family heirlooms that seldom get “used”. I love how I can bridge generations at one table.
Here are a few other ideas on how to incorporate heirlooms into your celebration. Consider using each family member’s baby cup as a place card, either filled with flowers or candy. Bring out your grandmother’s china, crystal or silver and mix it with your every day dishes. Use baby spoons in candy dishes.
A friend of mine collects silver baby cups and ties them on her stair garland at Christmas. I think they’d be darling hung from the dining room chandelier with ribbons, too. Hop over to my Instagram account (@prettypink2lips) to see if you won the Tulip Nouveau pillow by one of the coolest moms I know…Kerri Rosenthal!
Do you have any traditions for celebrating Mother’s Day?
