It’s always been Love = Roses = Mom…. but this year, I fell in love with lavender and lilacs…it’s soooo spring. I love the crisp mornings gently rolling into warm days and the evening ending with a soft coolness that nudges me into a deep sleep. Whew, almost nodded off there….
So – Mother’s Day.. It’s a particularly lovely year for our family – my daughter-in-law will celebrate with her daughter on her very first Mother’s Day this May. Oh yes! what fun ~~ a four month old little bundle of giggles, smelling like spring herself!
So, speaking of smelling like spring.. I bought some lemon verbena and lavender soaps as gifts for those selfless sweet moms in my family (I’ll treat myself to one too!). And we timed our trip to Home Goods perfectly – there waiting for us to take it home – a lavender and lilac watercolored quilt. I had my inspiration…
Wrap a pretty ribbon around the soap with a sprig of lavender
I like to make each place setting just a bit different… a lace napkin.

Type up a few questions on a lavender card and tuck under their napkin
