A Mother's Day MacKenzie-Childs Table Scape

With Mother's Day being right around the corner, my Mother in Law & I put together this pretty table scape using mainly MacKenzie-Childs pieces. The majority of the pieces are from the Morning Glory collection & they are truly stunning. They make for the most beautiful table scape.

In my last MacKenzie-Childs table scape (here), I shared how my Mother in Law is such a huge MacKenzie-Childs fan & turned me onto MacKenzie-Childs a few years ago. She is an amazing baker, interior decorator, cook, party host, & more! I knew I wanted her assistance with putting this together as a tribute to her :) We had so much fun putting this together & hopefully we can give you a little inspiration for your Mother's Day table scapes!

Like I said, my Mother in Law is a fantastic cook & baker!  I thought it would be fun to share some of her favorite recipes for brunch.  They are below.  These are all family favorites & have won over all of our hearts.  There is NO way you will be able to eat only one of those mini donut muffins...they are DELISH!  The cheesy potatoes are a Christmas morning staple, but she does bring them out throughout the year for other special occasions.   The coffee cake has made several appearances at different parties she has hosted & it is very tasty!  The strata is a complete win & always a crowd pleaser.

3. Bake in the oven until the tops are lightly golden, 15-20 mins.
4.  While muffins are baking, place 1/4 cup of melted margarine in a bowl.  In a separate bowl, mix together 1/2 cup of sugar with the cinnamon.  Remove muffins from their cups, dip each muffin in the melted margarine, & roll in the sugar-cinnamon mixture.  Let cool & serve!
