Bright yellow and white violas are like a breath of fresh air. Using potted plants is far less expensive than using cut flowers.
A little galvanized tin with a ruffled edge makes the perfect base for my mini tabletop Mothers Day garden. The inside is lined with preserved moss and rocks.
I borrowed the punch glasses from my 1950s punch bowl to use as votive holders. Fill them half way with bird seed then add the candle. After dinner you can feed the birds. They deserve a little love too!
Crusty pots and rusty cans make ideal containers for your flowers. 
I found a bunch of plain white napkins at a used restaraunt supply stoe. I snatched them up in a hurry because you can never have too many!
Take the flower off the napkin and add it to your salad. Just saying...
A vintage table cloth and a lichen mat and there you have it folks. Enjoy your day!
