Eight HGTV fans share inspiration and ideas to help you set a beautiful table to celebrate Mom.

Tea and Girl Talk

Tea and Cookies

HGTV fan artquest enjoys a quiet moment with freshly baked cookies and a warm cuppa. For a healthy treat, she recommends adding 1/2 cup flax seed and a 1/4 cup wheat germ to any cookie recipe. 

Pretty in Pink

HGTV fan MoonlightandMagnolias combined various patterns of pink floral china to create a harmonious whole. Tall candlesticks and an ivy topiary create a simple centerpiece. 

Al Fresco Brunch

HGTV fan countrygrl125 knows that food always tastes better when enjoyed outside. Keep the table simple with a centerpiece of fresh flowers clipped from the garden and serve Mom's favorite foods to start her big day off on the right foot.

Make It Special

A beautifully set table makes any meal into a special event; and what day could be more special than Mother's Day? Polish the heirloom silver, break out the crystal stemware and set a formal table to celebrate her big day. Table setting by HGTV fan countrygrl125. 

Charming Cottage-Style Brunch

Mother's Day brunch is the perfect occasion to set the table with family hand-me-down china and linens. Have fun, mix and match patterns, and layer fabrics to create a colorful table. Table setting by HGTV fan cottagecharm. 

Simple, Chic, Chocolate

HGTV fan misssuzie3 created a chic Mother's Day table that demonstrates how layering neutral tones, in this case gold and chocolate, creates a feminine and sophisticated table setting for brunch.
