Mothers are incredible people. This year, make sure you properly thank her for all she has done for you by celebrating her with a day she’ll cherish forever. Here are a few ideas to make this Mother’s Day her most memorable yet:
Plan a Beautiful Brunch
Create a colorful, bountiful brunch for mom. Make a checklist of all the necessary ingredients, ensuring you serve all of her favorites! For a fresh twist on brunch, incorporate the sweet summertime goodness of watermelon and other fresh fruit. Impress her with Breakfast Six Layer Trifle. Design a homemade menu card, and throw in an arrangement of her favorite blooms for a finishing touch.
Breakfast Six Layer Trifle
Serves: 8 to 12
3 cups organic fat free vanilla yogurt
2 cups low fat natural granola
4 cups watermelon, minced
3 cups organic fat free peach yogurt
2 cups organic crisp rice cereal
2 cups shredded coconut
Spread the vanilla yogurt over bottom of deep glass casserole or trifle dish. Layer remaining ingredients in order listed above in even layers over vanilla yogurt.
Plant a Garden Together
Before you shell out big bucks on chocolates and jewelry, consider a greener gift that mom can treasure from her window. Visit your local garden center or nursery and pick some vibrant beauties you know she’ll swoon over. Supply the gloves, mom’s favorite cocktails and snacks and make an event out of gardening with your favorite lady.
Create Your Own Card
No matter how old you are, nothing says it better than construction paper, glitter and a little creativity. If she’s a grandmother, involve the kids and make it a family craft project. Take a trip to your local hobby store to make sure you have all the goods for this tried-and-true ticket to mom’s heart.
