Moms do so much for us each and every day – for all the years of their lives. One day a year is not enough to truly celebrate how much we love our moms, but it’s a good start! Let’s make 2015 the most memorable Mother’s Day celebration yet!
Here are 5 ideas for how you can plan a simple, but thoughtful celebration for all the moms (and people who have been like moms) to you.
- Giver her a signature drink…in a special glass
What better way to relax and unwind than with a Sunday cocktail? Make this feel like a special Mother’s Day treat by creating a signature cocktail and naming it after your mom. Earn even more bonus points by placing it a fancy cup and garnishing it with some fruit! There are a ton of ideas online to get you started, but don’t forget to make it specific to your mom’s personality and taste.
- Throw a backyard party for all the generations of mothers in your family
As a mom, you can be torn between celebrating the day for yourself and also remembering to celebrate the other generations of mothers and grandmothers in your family. So why not host a celebration that brings everyone together? This time of year is a great opportunity to get outside again and enjoy the spring weather. Consider hosting a backyard celebration where your guests can mix, mingle and munch. To keep everyone comfortable, renting a small tent is a smart choice. It will also help to create an even more special event space!
- Rent special plates and linens to make the meal a special occasion
When it comes to Mother’s Day event rentals, you can get a lot more than just a tent. You can also rent festive and colorful plates, glasses and linens to add a special touch to your celebration. Show mom that this day is all about her by selecting these items in her favorite colors!
- Make flowers a bit more personal
In addition to the celebration, it’s appropriate to also get your mom something she can keep and cherish. Flowers are a staple of Mother’s Day, but aren’t lasting. Combine fresh flowers with a handmade pot or vase and also give mom something she can enjoy again and again. Pinterest has a ton of examples of projects like this!
- Unplug and relax!
This one might be the best idea yet, because it’s completely free! Commit as a family to “unplug” for the day by turning off your cell phones, lap tops, iPads and TVs and focusing all your time and attention on mom. Take a hike, sit outside, play a board game or cook together. These activities seem so simple – which is the point. Simplify your day to slow down and show your mom just how much you enjoy being with her.
