Planning a Mother’s Day brunch or event?  Keep reading for some quick and easy ways to make your tablescape “just peachy” as you celebrate those special ladies and Moms this year!

If you’re going to work hard to create a Mother’s Day tablescape…and you’re the mother…it might as well be one that at least 2/3 of your children love.  Right? 😂 And if the other 1/3 of your children happens to not like oranges, well, at least they are in the flowers and not on their plate.

Ready for a fruity tablescape?  I had so much fun creating this and you could use this theme for any spring or summer gathering!

In fact, my oldest liked it SO much that she chose this for a graduation party theme too!  

Even better?  A bag of oranges and peaches goes a LONG way and is less expensive than the flowers.

If it can get better than that…it’s just so simple. And who doesn’t need a little simple for Mother’s Day, after all?  (Since you’re probably the one creating the beauty for the day!)

Let’s get started!  (Disclaimer…I started having a lot of fun and went a little overboard!  You could re-create any aspect of this on a much smaller scale too!)

Simple Ideas to Create a “Peachy” Mother’s Day Brunch Tablescape

How to Create a Simple “Just Peachy” Centerpiece

I don’t know if you can really have a Mother’s Day brunch centerpiece without flowers but I also wanted to mix it up a little for something different!  The colors of peaches and grapefruit are so light and happy and they seem to fit the spring season so well.  Consequently, my search for a centerpiece landed me right in the middle of the produce aisle!

Since it’s right by the flowers at Trader Joe’s it made it super easy to assemble my entire centerpiece right there in my cart!

Materials:

  • Fresh eucalyptus or greenery
  • Fresh flowers
  • Fresh peaches, grapefruit, and a variety oranges
  • (Fresh peaches weren’t quite in season, so I used frozen peaches for my place setting cards.)
  • Faux peach stems from a couple years ago
  • Vintage white ironstone pieces from my collection
  • Wicker vase (this is my new favorite!)
To create my centerpiece, I planned to use fresh eucalyptus to make a garland down the middle of my table.  However, my store was out, so I opted for FREE greenery and clipped a few little branches from my own trees.  I added a variety of sizes of ironstone pieces, filled with simple arrangements.  After that, I tucked fresh fruit around the greenery and floral arrangements.

I also incorporated my new favorite wicker vase for some spring/summer texture.  I love the pretty shape too and it is a great size for a pretty centerpiece!

You can find some tips and ideas for creating pretty arrangements with grocery store flowers over on THIS POST.

Tip: Leave some of the fruit whole and cut some pieces in half for a really fun look!  It shows more color, dimension, and texture too!

How to Create “Peachy” Place Settings for a Mother’s Day Brunch

I love using lots of woven texture for the spring and summer months with baskets, straw hats, wicker picnic baskets, jute rugs, and even jute placemats.  To keep a simple look, I used my everyday white dishes and added a thrifted wicker under each dessert plate.  However, I wanted something to really tie in my peach and fruit theme.

My oldest daughter, Payton, is so good at calligraphy.  She agreed to help me out with some cute little cards that say “just peachy”.  After that, I used jute twine and a spring of fresh rosemary to tie the tags onto peach slices (fresh would be ideal, but the frozen ones worked great too!) and place on each little dessert stand.

They add a fun element for a Mother’s Day brunch but were so super easy!  You could even print some out on the computer!  In addition, you can find a free printable that I made for you HERE! 

How to Make a Peach Tart for a Mother’s Day Brunch

Fruit tarts are one of my very favorite desserts but we all know who the baker is in our family!  Payton graciously agreed to make a peach tart for me and share it with you too!

If you’re looking for a recipe that is super quick and easy, try this peach and blueberry dessert!
