Hey friends! Today I’m sharing a rustic, herb themed Mother’s Day table-scape that is so simple to recreate.

I know that a lot of traditional Mother’s Day tables are filled with flowers and frills, but my inspiration for this table came from my amazing Mother-in-law. I’ve shared a lot here on the blog about my own Mom and what she means to me, but I haven’t shared a whole lot about my Mother-in-law, Regina.

Born and raised in Germany, Regina stands at a whopping 4 feet, 10 inches. Don’t let her stature fool you, though – she has one of the biggest hearts and is one of the most giving people that I know.

She raised her son (my husband) to be strong, selfless, and hardworking yet so compassionate. I’m so thankful for the influence she had on Mike and for the ‘Oma’ she is to my three boys.

My Mother-in-law loves to garden and she has taught me so much about about different flowers and plants, in fact I shared about how she helped me with my own flower beds here if you’d like to read! 

The only thing Regina enjoys more than gardening is cooking. I think cooking delicious food for people is how she shows her love for them. 🙂 So with all that in mind, what combines both cooking and gardening better than fresh, potted herbs?

For this table I used basil, cilantro, rosemary, and mint. I love how the herbs are all so simple on their own, but when grouped together they make a greater impact.

I wanted the containers to look old and rustic, so I simply purchased some traditional terra cotta pots and used this method to make them look more like aged concrete.

I love the idea of having a menu that coincides with the tablescape, so I couldn’t help but make an herb inspired dish. A Rosemary Garlic Potato Cake in a cast iron skillet goes perfectly with the theme!

I can also imagine some citrus infused water with fresh mint, lemon and lime slices, or scrambled eggs flavored with parsley or chives if you went the brunch route. The options are endless!

If you’re the type of person who loves to send their guests home with something special, I came up with a wonderful herb-inspired favor! It was such an easy DIY – I simply painted some popsicle sticks with black chalk paint and used a white marker to create herb markers!

Gather them together with some string or jute and place them on each plate. How easy is that?

You know how I love to thrift, and most of what you see on this table came from a second hand store. The white plates, the tablecloth, the drinking glasses, and even the chargers were all thrifted.

And don’t ever feel like a table needs to be match perfectly. I only had four woven chargers so I chose to use large bread boards on each end instead. Mixing it up makes it more fun!

The silverware was given to me by a sweet friend, and while I’m sure most of you are wondering why on earth I didn’t shine if up for this table setting, I personally loved the aged patina of the tarnished silver!
