“The influence of a mother upon the lives of her children cannot be measured. They know and absorb her example and attitudes when it comes to questions of honesty, temperance, kindness, and industry.” Billy Graham
I am doing a tablescape in my garden in honor of Mother. I did a post a year ago that said “In looking for my Mother’s garden, I found my own.” She was the most hardworking and devoted person I have ever known. She loved her family and friends. First and foremost, she loved Jesus. She is walking in the gardens in Heaven with Him now.
I miss Mother so much. July 24th was her birthday and I am doing a tablescape in the garden as a tribute to her today.
I started in the kitchen putting colors together and looking at this beautiful face.
The wind was blowing and I loved this look.
I have used my gold chargers with these floral plates. Mother loved flower gardening more than anyone I know.
The flowers are mostly petite roses and hydrangeas from Trader Joes’s. I love this vase and I’ve added a stand that goes with another vase.
I thought this teapot would bring it all together, On Sunday afternoons when I was a young girl about 3 PM, we always had a little tea party of sorts. Mother made various cracker/cheese treats, lemonade or tea for the entire family. It is a beautiful ritual that I remember with joy.
Gold silverware and these rose colored glasses complete the look.
“Let us give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing Love.” Psalm 107:8
