Unicorn Centerpiece with Mother's Day Quote

Hi Friends! Mother’s Day is right around the corner already, and I felt inspired to dream up some mom’s day ideas for you this year that felt fresh and fun and a little outside the box

As someone that’s been designing and featuring celebrations for more than a decade, I’ve definitely seen my fair share of Mother’s Day themes inspired by tea, coffee, and all things that grow in a garden – and there have been some truly gorgeous ones!

However, I’m a mom myself, and personally I like other stuff too… like unicorns, and stars, and magical things… but especially UNICORNS. How about you? ;)

And speaking of magic, I feel like that’s also something that comes with the territory of being a mom – you know what I mean? Whether it’s a comforting hug, a “cheer up” shopping trip, or knowing just the right thing to fix a tricky situation, every kid needs a little “mom magic” from time to time.

SO… that sentiment is exactly what inspired this “Mom Magic” Mother’s Day design, which is full of bright colors, whimsical details, and lots of free printables, which you can download below!

This is a fun way to say thank you and celebrate the “mom magic” in your own life, or to shower some fellow mamas with love and appreciation. In other words… an excuse for some girlfriend time! ;)

Magic Muffins for Mother's Day + Unicorn Plush

This post is also brought to you by Krusteaz, who I’ve worked with as a brand ambassador for a couple years now. I used their Cinnamon Swirl Crumb Cake & Muffin Mix to make the “Mom Magic” Muffins pictured here, which are just about as easy and tasty as it gets! Just bake the muffins according to the directions on the box (water is all you need to add!), then garnish with edible star sprinkles. Paper toppers make for a sweet finishing touch.

Free Printable Mother's Day Banner and DIY Chair Cover

Decorating a “guest of honor” chair is one of my favorite things to do… and since you only have to decorate one you can get pretty creative with it! This “chair cover” is actually made from an inexpensive curtain panel I bought at Target. (It was also used to make the “table runner” and muffin basket liner.) I just cut the fabric to size for the chair, folded it over the back, and used 3D glue dots to secure the edges.

You can download the “Reserved for the World’s best MOM” banner below. :)

Mother's Day Printable Quote and Place Setting

For the centerpiece, I filled a white metal planter from Ikea with floral foam and a variety of pink and yellow flowers. The unicorn was just printed and cut out by hand (I left a small white border around most of it to make cutting easier), and then I added little gold stars punched from glitter paper for the “magical” finishing touch. ;)

Pink Yellow Teal Table Ideas with Unicorn

I designed 2 types of paper napkin rings, which are simply wrapped around folded napkins and taped in the back.

Here’s a closer look at the “Mom Magic” Cinnamon Swirl Muffins!

I found some awesome paper flowers in the $1 bins at Target and displayed them in bud vases with printable “mom magic” quotes leaning against them.

Here’s a closer look at the unicorn that started it all… you could do other fun things with this graphic too… I’m thinking banners, gift tags, cake topper… sky’s the limit!

    I love the bright colours. I also really like the unicorn. My daughter will be over-the-moon happy to get a print of the unicorn as she LOVES unicorns. Thanks.

    Hi! I love the stars in the flower arrangements! I was wondering how you crafted them? Did you hot glue the cutouts onto wire and/or shape the wire a certain way? Thanks!

    • jenn s. June 19, 2017 at 2:09 pm

      Hi Taylor – I used a star shaped craft punch on glittered card stock, then hot glued the stars to thin floral stem wires. I just inserted the wires into the floral foam (which also held the flowers) then bent them slightly to go in the directions I wanted them lean. Hope that helps! :)
