What a simple and lovely idea for a special occasion tablescape! My Mother’s Day Luncheon will feature a table full of perfect posies, each tucked into a lovely Pocket Cone Napkin Fold.
To make them match the luncheon’s color scheme, I tucked in a filmy pink napkin underneath! Why yes, that is a few slim stalks of asparagus you see! (It’s on the luncheon menu too)
Here’s how to create a whole table’s worth of Pocket Cone Napkins to fill with something fabulous for your special occasion tablescape.

Would you like to read more about my French-Inspired Ooh-La-La Mother’s Day Luncheon?
Celebrating Mother’s Day this year will be festive and delightfully delicious when hosting a “French-Themed” lunch to honor the mothers in your life.
Here’s what is on the menu of my fabulously French Mother’s Day Luncheon:
But what about dessert? You can’t have a bunch of gals together without serving dessert, right?
Here’s the two desserts I chose to be the “sweet endings” to my fabulous Mother’s Day Luncheon. I’ll serve both with an assortment of teas to wind down what is sure to be a lovely afternoon.
The first is a light and moist Pink Grapefruit Chiffon Cake with White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting. Yes, I know it’s PINK!
I finished the cake off with some delightful sugar flowers and leaves I purchased on Amazon last year. They last forever if kept in a dry, dark and cool location.
It turned out so lovely with three luscious layers, just aching for some White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting. Depending on the size of cake pan you use, you’ll have 2 or 3 layers, so you will need 6 whole cups of frosting for this cake. (that’s exactly how much my recipe makes!)
Now, for the second Mother’s Day Luncheon dessert, I knew any gaggle of women would be looking around, waiting for the chocolate to appear! So as not to disappoint, I’ve also included a lovely Chocolate Grand Marnier Pots de Crème on the menu.
It’s densely chocolate, with a hint of citrus that gives it a new level of sophistication. In keeping with the party’s pink color-scheme, and the pink grapefruit cake, I garnished them with Candied Pink Grapefruit slices. They are amazingly addictive, so be careful to save enough for your presentation!
I finished the Chocolate Grand Marnier Pots de Crème with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream and fresh mint. Don’t they look lovely? And they taste even better!
