Well, I’m not quite sure how it happened but apparently I have lost track of time and now find myself scrambling for ideas as Mother’s Day approaches.
I’m hoping no one else is like me and running behind, but if you are, today I’m going to share a past post about Mother’s Day Entertaining.
If you volunteered to host the celebration a while back and are just now remembering that it is this coming Sunday, good luck! Hopefully you’ll find some useful tips here.
If you are hosting a Mother’s Day get together, think about what you can do to make all the mothers feel extra special in your home. By implementing a few simple ideas, you will ensure they know how much they are loved and appreciated.
Have a door greeter (one of your children would be great at the job) who hands every Mom a single stem flower as they walk in the door. These can be flowers from the florist or fresh cut from your garden. Have the flowers in a basket with individual water tubes on each stem to keep them fresh. Water tubes are available in craft stores or from a florist.
If you are serving a sit-down meal, have something special for each Mom at her place setting. It can be something as simple as a tiny box with one decadent truffle or a piece of her favorite candy. You could have an individual flower or votive floating in a small bowl. Even a poem hand-written or photocopied on nice card stock would be appreciated.
To truly touch her heart, spend a few minutes writing down the reasons you appreciate her. Put it on nice cardstock or in an inexpensive frame. This will definitely be a keepsake and probably much more appreciated than other gifts you could buy.
And don’t forget those who may not be mothers, but have a mother’s-heart. If you have a special aunt, sister, cousin or friend who goes out of her way to make you or your little ones feel special, make sure you show your appreciation to them as well.
Think with your heart and I know you’ll be able to give your Mom a special memory she’ll always treasure.
