Pondering Mother's Day

Good morning! I cannot believe how fast this year seems to be going, I feel as if it is passing me by some days. Mother's Day is just around the corner and although I will not be spending the day with my mom I am thinking of things to make her day special.

Beautiful flowers are always a good idea, perhaps you could make her an arrangement using a vase or vessel that is special to her.

Brunch, lunch or a tea would be a wonderful idea too. You could get together with your siblings and plan a menu based on your mom's favorite foods. In my moms case the table would be filled with lots of sweet treats. Hey, what can I say, the apple did not fall far from the tree.
Cards. Cards are always important. I personally love to send a sentimental card, my mother in law however loves funny cards!

An adventure with mom could also be an option. I have one planned with mom my when she comes to visit soon after Mothers day. A few of our favorite things to do are to visit the botanical gardens, a museum or two, to walk along the ocean and of course to shop for treasures at the local antique stores. Or perhaps something further afield, like a mother daughter trip to Paris or Tuscany. Both of which my mom and I enjoyed tremendously.

Or you could make your mom something special.  One year I gave my mom a decoupaged box. The outside was decorated with words and photos that represented her personality and life. The inside had four eggs, each decorated with pictures and words that represented each one of her four children.

I will be putting more thought to each of these ideas and in the next few days sharing some of the things I have found on Pinterest and around the web to celebrate our moms.

Will you be spending the day with your mom? What are your plans? I would love some ideas for gifts, flowers or even fun adventures. Let me know what your ideas are.

I hope that you have a great day!


  1. I will be thinking of her, as she has been gone for 30 year this June. Enjoy your time with your WONDERFUL mother, my dear friend!

  2. Cake's a lovely idea.

    I'll be thinking of her. She passed away a year ago this weekend.

  3. I'm always confused by this as we have our Mothers Day in the UK in March!
    Hope your mum has a wonderful day, and indeed for mothers everywhere.

  4. As the years go by I've really strayed away from gifts and prefer doing something fun with my mom. We usually go shopping and end up having lunch at a little café we like, but this year will be different since I've moved. I'll have to give it some thought now that we're not in the same cities.:(
