BACK WITH A PICK YOUR FAVORITE- MOTHER'S DAY TABLE

I bet you thought I was 
telling a lie when I said I would be back,
didn't you?
You thought I was going to go away
permanently.
You were WRONG!
I am like the proverbial
'bad penny' 
that just keeps turning up.

Soon I will share what 
I have been up to--
but today I though it would be fun
to start off with a
PICK YOUR FAVORITE!

Mother's Day is coming-
Let's set a pretty table.
Pick ONE TABLE...
GOT IT?
(she said ever so nicely)

Here we go:
TABLE #1
GREAT BALLS OF FLOWERS

TABLE #2
WHITE ON WHITE

TABLE #3
FADED PASTELS

TABLE #4
A PUNCH OF COLOR

TABLE #5
WHISPER OF VIOLET

TABLE #6
WINE & DINE

TABLE #7
JUST A LITTLE BLUE

TABLE #8
PINKLY PRETTY
So- There you have it.
Make your pick and I will be back
with your votes all tallied.

I have missed blogging
and all of you!!
I will be around to visit!

Oh it’s good to see you back! I’m going to pick number two but I want violets on the table, you didn’t mention rules , lol,😘

Vee said...

#2 White on White...seems so calming and I need calming I guess.

WILLIE...! =(^..^)= said...

Well..For it me has to be....
TABLE ONE....
~~GREAT BALLS OF FLOWERS~~

Reminds me...
Great Balls of Flowers is contemporary American
literature in the tradition of Whitman and
Ted Berrigan, the Beats and Frank O'Hara.....!

Is that it...??? HeHe!
I put a joke on R's Post this morning...
"What did the bra say to the hat"?
"You go on a head, l'll give these two a lift". :).

Sandi said...

#1 -- those balloons are fabulous!

No way to #8...bird's nests? How unsanitary! ;-)

You are not making this easy with those beautiful choices, but I think it has to be #5. I can't resist purple flowers. -Jenn

mxtodis123 said...

All of these settings are gorgeous and I have narrowed my choice down to do. Have to go with table 5 because I love violet. Welcome back.

Kay G. said...

Just one??? But I love them all! Okay, I will choose #4. I am a Georgia Peach after all!


Theresa said...

Welcome back! I think I will take a seat at Table #3 Faded Pastels. Who will join me, can't wait to see! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

Liz@ HomeandGardeningWithLiz said...

I’m torn between table 2 and 6! What to do...toss a coin.... ok it’s number.....6!
Welcome back by the way!

Nellie said...

I'll choose #7; always have loved blue! Glad to catch you here on one of my very rare visits! - xoxo Nellie

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

My choice is Table #8: Pinkly Pretty. It was hard to choice between that and Table #7 Just a little blue, they both appealed to me, but Pink won over.

Tom said...

...fancy, fancy, fancy!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

#3 Faded Pink....ahhh! I love it! And since my roses are all in full bloom, I'll bring some extra rose petals! Can't wait to hear about your trip! Hugs!

Jettie said...

I choose #4. I like it because it is the least cluttered looking of all of them. I might put my elbows on the table and knock stuff off all the others.

Estelle's said...

How fun Diana...I would choose to sit at Table 2...white on white...letting the food be the star of the table!

Gay Van Beek, Canterbury Cottage Designs said...

YAY! I absolutely adore the faded pastels table. The rose plates won me over! (But I'd appreciate a glass of wine from the wine table, thank you!) Love you always.

Lisa said...

I tried to ring in early but I see the tables are already getting filled.!
I want to sit at table #4. The punch of color makes me think of Summer picnics.
Umm...Save me one of those drinks too.
Lisa

Lisa said...

PS: Don’t sit me beside Jetti

Kim said...

Table number two is beautiful, but I choose table number one please, because I want a piece of that cake!

jack69 said...

FABBY'S LIVING said...


Oh I'm so happy your cheery and pretty self is back with us.
While I love all your choices I prefer the all white #2, specially because of the beautiful shape of the plates. The flowers are simply gorgeous too.
Lots of inspiration here. I will pin this post.
Thanks for sharing. Hope all is great with you dear friend.
My mom is a lot better and I have good hired help, so it's a relief for me. Plus I'm going to be a grandma again from daughter Alexandra, who's got 3 year old Maxima and now she'll have a little sister, she is so lucky.
Big hugs,
Fabby

Pam said...

HI!!!!! Welcome Back! Missed you. Now....I want table #7 but I would also like to be able to hop around and visit. I like #4 for the interesting looking colorful drinks, then of course the wine and dine one for the WINE, of course! haha. I am sure I can find friends over at the calm looking #7 and the faded pastels look great. Just SAVE me a seat at all of them! haha

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

Hi Diana! #8 for me, although, #3 was next! This is always fun.

Ann said...

Well I'm skipping white on white because I plan on snitching a bottle from wine and dine to share with all the girls at just a little blue.

Ann said...

I meant to add that I wouldn't want to spill the wine on the white tablecloth .

Lowcarb team member said...

Welcome back, and hope you had a good break.

All the best Jan

Table #2 so elegant..#7 comes in second..a little more casual..You are my favorite bad penny..Are you back for good or is this just a tease??
Make that #7..the white dishes don't match!!! LOLHave a good week!!

Junkchiccottage said...

I know you probably think I would go for the white on white I actually like the first table. It looks like lots of fun can be had at that table. Love the flowered balls hanging. Hope all is well.
Big hugs,
Kris

Welcome back, girlie! :) Well, you KNOW what my fav is going to be, don't you? Lol! Give me the Punch of Color! It looks so fresh, happy, and tropical. Right up my alley. *wink*

Luv ya, doll!

Cecilia said...

Well I was going to pick #6 Wine and Dine because well, wine. But I have to go with #7 in memory of my mother (it's for Mother's Day after all). Blue was her favorite color. I think I'll bring my own bottle of wine though, lol. She'd approve!
hugs, Cecilia

Barbara said...

This time it was especially hard to pick just one table, but I'm going with #2 White on White because it speaks the elegance I think Mother's Day should be. (and I love the roses)

Deborah Montgomery said...

Definitely 8. Love the pink. <3

cards4ubylouise and other treasures said...

Table #8 like the pink and oh yes those macaroons...I have always wanted to try one. I see them being made on the cooking shows....sure would like to try on for real!!!

Creations By Cindy said...

Well I’m going with 2 . Just something about that beautiful, seren, fresh and calming white . Good to see you post . Can’t wait to hear what you’ve been up to or should i say ... in too ? 😂 hugs and blessings, Cindy

Tonita said...

Happy to see you are back. Table number three please.

Saimi said...

Table #3 for me!!! I think Mothers Day celebration should be pretty, soft, delicate and girly and table 3 is all about that!!! Seat for two please. I'd invite my sister but she would already be sitting at table 2 white on white.

Rose L said...

#3 Faded Pastels suits me to a tee!

Wow your sure have lots of comments here!!!

My choice is #8. Pink is one of my favorite colors. It looks beautiful,
elegant and makes me smile.

Melanie said...

I would like to be seated either at table #4, Punch of Color because it looks FUN and not-too-fancy (I don't do fancy) or #6, Wine and Dine because duh...wine!! I promise I won't dance on the table though. I'll behave.

Now you must tell us all that you've been up to!
xoxo

Lorrie said...

I'd like to sit at #2 please, White on White, BUT I'm moving to #8 for dessert because ... MACARONS!

J said...

#7 !! I think I'd feel very cozy sitting there!

Stacey said...

I'd be happy to sit at any of these Diana. :)

Anonymous said...

#6 Wine & Dine

krishna said...

I'll go for table # 5, Whisper of violet. The tablescape is beautiful. On the top I just have fallen love with the name.

At Rivercrest Cottage said...

Table two for me please. No smart remarks on it, just a quick choice.

BeachGypsy said...

They are ALL SO PRETTY!, but it's an easy choice for me this time!!--on table Number One, it looks to have a big white fluffy COCONUT CAKE, and I'm not going to pass that by, no sireeBob!! ha ha LOL Not sure who else will be at that table, but hopefully some old friends, and let's make some new friends too. As always, I'll be toting along my trusty crystal ball, hopefully I don't drop it and break anybody's toe, LOL!! I usually bring along a few jugs of SWEET TEA!--this time I'm going to do something different and bring ice cold lemonade. I adore coconut cake, and I'll bring along some of that divine carribean coconut gelato stuff to serve with it. I just discovered that stuff this past winter and oh my, it's SO YUMMY. I have glow in the dark necklaces and bracelets for everyone for after the sun goes down, and twenty five dozen sets of sparklers so we can light 'em up and swoooooosh and pop and fizzle, just like when we were little kids. Can someone please bring a lighter? LOL

NanaNor's said...

Diana, They are all lovely, but I pick #3-faded Pastels. Love your sharing this.
Noreen

Carole said...

Terri Steffes said...

Faded pastels for me! However, I can see a use for all those settings depending on the party! Praying for your friend.

Katie Isabella said...

Table 3!!! Headed straight to it now...hope I won't be the only one there..

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

Hi Diana! So nice to have a visit from you! So many folks have memories of a snowball bush. I'm feeling pinkly pretty for a table today. Love that centerpiece!

CHERI said...

Oh, dear...so many choices!!! And I am so bad about choosing. HOWEVER...hands down for me it's #4...a Punch of Color. I LOVE color! That table would just make me smile all over:)

Carol Henstra said...

Number five. Happy your back.
