Make it a formal affair by sending Mom an invitation to her special brunch! Celebrations.com has a collection of digital Mother’s Day cards and invitations that will really brighten up her morning. If Mom lives far away (or if you just want to make her smile), be sure to send a physical card/invitation as well!
Mother’s Day Decorations
Set the scene for your Mother’s Day brunch with a decorations and accents inspired by spring and family! Work out a plan with the other members of the family to drag Mom to the park or nail salon to clear out some time to prep the home. Once Mom is gone, set up floral centerpiece, candles, and old family photos in decorative frames around the room. When Mom returns, she should find the room fully decorated with the first course (a light spring soup, perhaps?) waiting for her.
