There is a woman in your life who is very important to you. She guided you through life, and made you the person you are today. That woman is your mother. Here are five creative ways to celebrate mom at home this Mother’s Day.
Cook a Special Brunch
For years, your mom is the one who fed you, so why not switch it around, and invite her over for a fancy brunch? If you are wondering what to serve her, Martha Stewart has some great recipes specifically for brunch. To add an extra special flare to the brunch, create a homemade menu like this one, and serve a fancy drink instead of plain orange juice. Add in some flowers, a nice gift, and a card, and you have the ideal brunch to show your mom your appreciation!
Plant Something Special
Flowers from the florist are a wonderful surprise for your mom, but they do not last long. Instead of the same old flowers, why not take your mom to the greenhouse, choose one of her favourite trees or plants, and plant it together?
Host a Surprise Party
This is the perfect way to make your mom feel appreciated! Gather all of your family and friends together for a surprise Mother’s Day party! If you have never planned a surprise party before, Wikihow has an article with tips about preparing, decorating, and keeping the surprise. Since you are hosting, your mom will be able to just enjoy the party and have a good time.
Create a Treasure Hunt
