Mother’s Day is coming up on Sunday, May 14th, 2023.  As a mom, there’s nothing quite like Mother’s Day. It’s a day when we get to be pampered and appreciated for everything we do. It’s also a day when we can spend time with our loved ones and create lasting memories.

If you’re wondering how to make the most of this beautiful day, here are some ideas for the perfect Mother’s Day celebration from a mom of two.

Celebrating Mother’s Day: Ideas for the Perfect Day

  1. Start the day with breakfast in bed. There’s something special about being served breakfast in bed, and it’s a great way to start Mother’s Day. Let your family know what you like, whether it’s pancakes, waffles, or something else, and enjoy your meal in peace while your family takes care of the dishes. This is my favourite way to start the day on Mother’s Day. The kids come in with breakfast, handmade Mother’s Day cards and lots of hugs and kisses.
  2. Take a family photo. Capture the memories of the day with a family photo. This can be an excellent opportunity to dress up and take a formal or casual shot. Whatever you choose, it’s a great way to remember the day and create a keepsake. The kids are happy to take photos with me on Mother’s Day; as they get older,  it is harder to get them to pose with me without complaining other times!
  3. Plan an activity. Plan an activity you’ll all enjoy, whether a trip to the park, a bike ride, a family hike,  or a museum. This is a great way to bond as a family and create lasting memories. Make sure to choose something that everyone can participate in and enjoy. I love spending time with them outdoors when the weather permits.
  4. Have a picnic. Pack a lunch or dinner and head to your favourite spot for a picnic. This is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and spend time together as a family. You can even make it a potluck and have each family member bring something to share.
  5. Treat yourself to something special. Whether it’s a spa treatment, getting your nails done, or a new outfit, take the opportunity to treat yourself to something special on Mother’s Day. You deserve it!
  6. End the day with a family movie night. Wrap up the day by cuddling on the couch for a family movie night. Choose a movie everyone will enjoy, and make some popcorn or treats while watching.

In conclusion, Mother’s Day is a special day to celebrate all that moms do. You can make the day perfect by spending time together as a family, creating lasting memories, and treating yourself to something special.

So, go ahead and plan your ideal Mother’s Day celebration!
