In honor of Mother’s Day I thought I’d share a few ideas you might want to use for your brunch or dinner table.
I love adding little details— and I’ve always thought a silhouette place card would be a perfect addition for a Mother’s Day table, don’t you think?
So today I decided to make this one and share it with you.
Since I was in a time crunch to get this post out, I decided to use the old fashioned cut and paste method. Pretty basic.
But if you’re interested, here’s how I did it.
(I’m sure there’s all kinds of stamps and stickers out there you can buy --but I made these without leaving my house)
Old Fashioned cut out and paste method.
First I found my image HERE.
After I clicked on it and singled it out from the page… I right clicked over the image again but this time I clicked COPY.
I opened up a Microsoft word document. I clicked PASTE and the image appeared.
Then I clicked SAVE and printed it out. Don’t forget to name your file.
(Sorry if I’m insulting anyone, ha. I know these are simple instructions but these are the kind I like best)
For this project I chose to make just one; I cut it out and simply glued it on these chalk labels I had from Joann’s Craft store.
But if I’d wanted to make a bunch, all I would do is keep pasting the image on the Word. Doc then print it out. Then you cut each one out, and glue. Voila!
I know it takes time, but I think it’s so worth it.
Some other easy ideas for your table include adding doilies underneath the glassware…
(you can find these at most Craft stores)
setting silverware on top of an old book page…
(you can find wonderfully yellowed pages in thrift store books)
and putting flowers inside tarnished silver pots and colorful tea cups.
Here’s some other inspiration you might like:
made from real pictures of your guests, how-cool-is-that?
filled with flower seeds or a sentimental photo
I hope you found something in this post you can use.

Whatever you do, I hope you have a wonderful weekend…
