This year I am missing my mama. She is in Peru, spending time with friends and family until next month so a mother’s day phone call will have to do. Still, I decided to do a little crafty goodness with some pieces I’d had for a while and set up a colorful table.

The pretty purple flowers grow in our front yard so they came in handy. The three little stands were made from plain wood circles and candle holders from Michaels.

Isn’t my mama stylish in her red wedges, summery white pants and peasant top?

I don’t remember this picture at all, she found it last year and gave it to me in the little frame.

I painted the candle holders in different colors, gold, mocha and pale pink (actually Valspar’s Apricot Ice, which my youngest chose), and cut out circles from 3 coordinating scrapbooking papers for the tops:

I hadn’t planned on the papers to coordinate with the flowers but that’s how it worked out!

So, happy mother’s day, mama, I can’t wait to see you in a few weeks!
