No matter what meal you’re hosting for your mother, there’s always room for some pink and polka dots. Adding a little Minnie Mouse fun to your day can remind you to lighten up, have fun and just relax. Tulips, napkins, and mason jars are all you’ll need to set this table. See how we put these to work in our tablescape.

These Minnie Mouse Mothers Day Table Decorations are quick and easy. And a great way to add a little more Disney at Home. A trip to Target will get you almost everything you need for about 10 dollars, though you’ll probably be surprised by how much stuff you probably already have just laying around. Here’s our quick list of Disney Mothers Day Decorations for you to add to your table.
What Do You Need for a Minnie Tablescape?
Mason Jars: For sipping cute drinks, strawberry smoothies, or just trying to keep the guests from digging through your cupboards for glasses. Keep a pitcher of cucumber water on hand and empty muffin cups for hand-held snacks.
Glass bottles, or cups: These can act as mini flower holders and at different heights could add some variation to the tablescape. Go for tall, medium, and small. Don’t make things so symmetrical that people will hesitate to grab a napkin, cup, straw for worry of ruining your display.
Tulips or Other Flowers: I have a weakness for pink tulips, especially in the spring. This time of year I usually like to find them potted so that I can plant them later, but regular cut tulips will do if you’re up against the clock or want the simplicity of cut flowers. Get two colors at least to mix things up a bit.
Napkins: We chose pink polka dots and stripes, but you can really do this table in any color scheme that strikes your fancy. The napkins can act as napkins, wrappers for the vase, accents, whatever. We used them here to wrap a small glass vase to carry the theme throughout the table elements. Just add tape to the back so your guest can’t see, and you’re all set. The napkins here act as a table element, but really its just rolled up napkins in pretty colors
Pink Dessert: Any pink food will do to carry the color scheme. We chose macarons because they’re small enough to nibble and light enough to not spoil the main course.
Add a little Disney to your Mothers Day
You don’t need to shout Disney from the rooftops on Mothers Day. Just add a few tasteful elements that promote fun. Here we took Jute rope which you can get anywhere for about 5 dollars and wound it with the aid of a hot glue gun into a mickey head. You can cut a piece of card stock to act as backing for the coaster.
And since it really is all about Minnie, finding a cute mug or something to add a little magic to your table can mark where Mom is going to sit and can be a fun way to make her feel extra special.
Table decorations are easy peasy once you get the hang of the elements you need to make it special every time. And be inventive! The table runner for this tablescape is actually a blanket scarf in soft gray but adds such a cozy element to the pink that we couldn’t resist adding it.
