This year for Mother’s Day, why not plan a special day in! Sometimes the best way to celebrate is by keeping it simple and just spending quality time together in the comfort of your home. There are many ways to make mom feel special on her big day.
First, a classic way to celebrate Mother’s Day is with brunch! Everyone loves to share a meal together and brunch is a special way to do that. Plan ahead and find recipes that she will enjoy and ask the rest of the family to help as well with the spread. Make some of her favourite old family recipes and also try some new ones to make it feel different and special. A great idea is to set up a mimosa bar! Serve champaign with a variety of juices and fruits to top it off.
If it’s nice weather outside, enjoy the outdoors at home! Spend time in the yard and you could even have your meal outside as a picnic or on the deck or patio. If you are at your mom’s house and she enjoys gardening, you could help her out in the gardens. Or simply take a walk together and enjoy the spring day.
Share memories together by pulling out some old photo albums and look through family photos and home videos. This will bring up many happy family memories and you can tell stories and reminisce together. If your mom enjoys games, have some fun playing board games or cards together.
The most important thing is that you enjoy spending the day together, and having this special day in will certainly impress your mom!
