I can't remember when my siblings and I stopped racing to be the first one up on Mother's Day, ready to take on the important task of setting the table. I believe it was the year my sister, Rebekah, cleverly did it the night before, putting the rest of us to shame.

Moms are a pretty big deal, and if you have not already planned a celebration for yours, I've rounded up some inspiration for setting a gorgeous table for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Table settings may not seem like a grand gesture, but since it's where many will flock to celebrate this important day, a bit of prep time could make all the difference.

A crisp green and white palette is a favourite of mine these days. Lush centerpieces in these soft colours are perfect for spring.

Pretty in pink — always a popular choice for Mother's Day.

We've been spoiled with such beautiful weather in Toronto this past week, so let's hope it holds so this weekend's festivities can be held outdoors. Tip: Downplay dishes and introduce colour with statement flowers.

Perky colours and personalized centerpieces are a fun way to involve the kids.

I'm just crazy about these tiny flower arrangements and tea biscuits wrapped in ribbon — the way to my Mom's heart.
