Mother’s Day 2014

by Star Furniture on May 5, 2014

The American version of Mother’s Day got started in 1908 when it was created by Anna Jarvis. It wasn’t until 1914 that Mother’s Day became a nationally recognized holiday. But due to it’s over-commercialization, Jarvis actually wanted to get the holiday taken off the calendar. Clearly she was unsuccessful, as we still celebrate this holiday today (usually on the second Sunday of May). Despite it’s consumer-driven nature, Mother’s day remains at it’s core, a celebration of mothers.

And to celebrate the fact that Mother’s Day is less than a week away, we’ve put together this fun blog post full of craft & gift ideas and lovely tablescapes. Enjoy!
