Mom deserves to be pampered every day, but especially on Mother’s Day. This year, skip the hectic restaurant or the messy breakfast-in-bed and plan a day full of Mom’s favorite things. Here’s how to start.
Prepare Brunch at Home
On Mother’s Day, make sure Mom stays out of the kitchen. Set a simple yet elegant table featuring a bouquet of her favorite flowers. Prep everything the night before and store it in the fridge to save time the next day. Take advantage of the warm spring weather and prepare a meal full of fresh veggies and delicious local fruits.
Plan an Outdoor Activity
Make arrangements to spend the day outdoors with Mom. Pack up the picnic basket, fill a thermos with lemonade, and take the family on a leisurely hike through Mom’s favorite park. Stop at a meadow or pond for a light snack and beverage.
DIY Gifts from the Kids
Set aside a day to create Mother’s Day presents with the kids. Make sure Mom isn’t around! Peruse your local craft store for ideas, or gather inspiration from Mom’s job or hobbies. Maybe she mentioned that she wanted stepping stones added to the backyard garden?
Take Mom Out
Brunch and a day spent in the sun with the kids might be Mom’s ideal day, but what about after the sun sets? Purchase tickets to that new show she’s been talking about, or take her out for a drink or two.
Do the Dishes
No matter what you plan on Mother’s Day, make sure Mom has no hand in the cleanup. Let her relax outside while everyone else cleans, or take turns cleaning throughout the day. This is her day to be pampered, after all, so cleaning should be nowhere on her radar.
