Magnolias for Mother's Day 2021

Hello sweet friends !

I just arrived after spending two weeks at my dear Sofia's house, about three hours away from us. We went to stay with their three kids, our two teenagers and baby boy almost 2 1/2. 

Therefore, again I haven't been around blog land, because time is the least I had.

Anyway I'm back and I'm sharing my 'Mother's Day' tablescape in honor of my sweet mother who is 91 and not to well in her mind, (she forgets a lot.)

I thought of her when I started this tablescape, specially cause she loved this china I brought from Madrid three years ago and I used it for four guests on Mom's Day in her honor, that same year.

I wish everyone of you a wonderful and blessed Mother's Day tomorrow. If you are a mother, a grandmother, or even a great grand ! Of course if you have a dear mother in your life, much more so.

I bought this "Magnolia" bone china dinnerware on my last trip to Spain, to visit our daughter Alexandra who lives there. 

The beautiful store is "El Corte Ingles" and it's what's on the back of the plates. The sales lady told me they were specially manufactured for their store from Portugal.

                I happen to 'ran' into this pretty "runner" with a Magnolia motiff and thought perfect for my Magnolia china for Mother's Day.

               I tried not to cover the Magnolia in the runner, although the center part is.

                             Baked a 'Marble Cake' for my mother who loves it !

                   Flowers from the condo's garden.

                                "Marble Cake" recipe from an old Good Housekeeping magazine. The best, I've made it for decades!


                           Thank you so much dear friends for your sweet comments, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for their great parties and for so many features I am honored with, from some of you.
