Dazzle with Mother with Jewels this Mother's Day

Take a bright, bold, colorful approach to Mother’s Day. Adorn your mother with emerald, ruby and sapphire. This spring season pays homage to Jewel tone colors with rich, nuanced hues, offering more opportunity for creativity with unexpected color combinations.

It’s all about mixing and matching! Pair a colorful piece with your mainstream staple and this pop of color will add an important dimension in expressing your own unique sense of style. In an article entitled, " Jewel Tone Living Rooms", Domino magazine used a vibrant color palette in this story which appeared in the April issue. To keep this table setting elegant and not chaotic they narrowed the palette. From there they dressed up the basic shapes—the plates, napkins and etched glasses—with ornate pieces, like the sculptural teapots, shown above.

Kate Spade offers an alluring color palette. Jewel tone colors are applied to surface patterns, china and glass, Any of these pieces are sure to make a vibrant gift for any Mother’s day present!

I like sophisticated vibrant color palette like these. The Domino's April Bold Color Palettes articles satisfied my craving. Reading your posts, I can tell you got inspired by that issue too. That green vase by Kate spade is one my favorite designs.

I am also a tableware enthusiast. I devised a vibrant palette tableware board for a Mother's Day brunch. The style is totally different. Sarah, I invite you to check it out at
