Women’s History Month tablescape

March is Women’s History Month, and our family dinner book club theme is Fairness. I wanted to set up a tablescape to encompass both themes. A floral centerpiece felt like the perfect feminine element for my table. I took all the flowers I could find and arranged them into a tablerunner. A few candles add to the ambience. Aren’t the napkins folded into roses just the prettiest touch?!

My favorite part, though, are the easy paper flowers. I cut out two different flower shapes, attached them to chenille stems, and wrote the names of important women in history on the petals. During mealtime, you can pick a flower and talk to your children about the impact these various women have had on history.

As I was cleaning up my tablescape, I was left with just the paper flowers. So I thought it would be fun to set up a quick centerpiece using them. This is an easier option if you don’t have a whole bunch of flowers lying around like I do! (Scroll all the way down to see my simpler centerpiece.)

Here are links to all the women I wrote on my own flowers for inspiration. Biography Online is a fun place get some quick information on them. Wikipedia is great, too.

Malala Yousafzai.

Shirley Chisholm.

Maya Angelou.

Sojourner Truth.

Althea Gibson.

Oprah Winfrey.

Jane Austen.

Marie M. Daly.

Anne Frank.

Mae C. Jemison.
