A lot of times with Mother’s Day the focus is on what children should get their mother or significant mother figure in their life. But what about the dad?! It is just as important for the father to shower his spouse with some needed love on this special day. So when FTD challenged us with putting together a tablescape featuring their florals to help inspire dads we jumped at the opportunity!
First off, look at all these gorgeous Mother’s Day bouquets! If there is one thing that is a no-fail gift it is having flowers delivered. No way that cannot improve someone’s day and every time I have gotten flowers delivered to my mom or mother-in-law they have loved it! If you take the flowers and pair it with a simple brunch then you have definitely out done yourself this year.
I decided to throw a simple outdoor brunch picnic with the beautiful Sunlit Meadows bouquet. Now, you might be thinking this is a lot to do but trust me – all you need is a lovely spring day, a blanket, these flowers and some quick breakfast food and you have the most fabulous Mother’s Day surprise! I chose a wood pallet as the makeshift table but of course any blanket will do. And grab some pillows to make it even more inviting!
Brunch is a common Mother’s Day gift and of course I would never encourage anyone to not treat their wife or significant other to breakfast in bed. But I also firmly believe you have to take advantage of May weather and there is truly nothing better than a picnic. Planning one for someone you love is such a warm gesture and laying on a blanket in the sun is one of the true joys of life. I just am not convinced there is any better way to celebrate Mother’s Day. Plus, if you have a yard or patio then no one even has to get out of their pajamas!
For my picnic I grabbed some blueberry muffins, orange juice, strawberries and pie (at brunch it is perfectly acceptable to have dessert). I kept it small and easy to show all you dads how easy it is to create a lovely spread. No cooking required!
Extra flowers are always a plus. I always just go to my local grocery store and buy two bunches of flowers and stick them in whatever vases I have around – it so easy to DIY floral arrangements. Above I am using votive holders (hence the no water) and below I am using lanterns so really anything works.
And one more look at those flowers! I just love the vase so much and will definitely be using it in the future!
