As you can imagine, there is one day a year I try not to be in charge of setting the table.

For the other 364 days, I am all over it.

But Mother’s Day is a fun time to sit back, relax, and encourage my family to have some fun while cooking and setting a table.

For years I just told my boys to head into the Butler’s Pantry and use whatever they want (as long as dad took care of the items that were stored up high) to set the table. I love seeing how creative the boys can be!

I thought maybe I could inspire some of you by sharing some of my favorite dining tables. Perhaps there is an idea or two here that can be borrowed to add some fun to a few of the Mother’s Day tables being set this year.

Sadly, I will not be busy cooking or preparing brunch for my mom as she will be with my dad looking down on all their kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids as we celebrate the memory of my mom this week.

It’s hard to spend this day without my mom by my side but I can promise you she will be in my cherished thoughts all day long.

Here are thirteen of my favorite tables that I hope you will use as inspiration this week.
