With Mother’s Day just around the corner, you must be wondering how you can express your unconditional love for your mom. One problem also arises, when you yourself are a mom and want to make your mom & mother-in-law feel special, the confusion arises of which Mom, of all the Moms – which one to make feel special or spend the day with? Does this one thing scares and confuses you at the same time every year on mother’s day, here we’ve come up with the perfect plan—spend the day with all Moms, together, in one place. Sound a bit scary? Trust us it will be super fun, here’s how you can do it:
Start Planning Two Weeks Before Mother’s Day
Make it really special and send out invitations to each of the Moms be it your sister, mother, mother-in-law or your best friend who just became a mom. Let them know when and where you guys will be going, but don’t reveal what you’ve got planned—let that be the surprise element. If you don’t have time to print out actual invitations (and who does?), just send a paperless post, or create a private event on Facebook — you know grandmas are all about receiving emails and scrolling through social media nowadays.
Mother’s Day Itinerary
11 a.m. – Have the Moms meet at a nice resort and start the day with a light brunch that includes some simple fruit, cupcakes, macaroons, croissants and, of course, mimosas and mojitos.
2 p.m. – Make it a spa day! All Moms deserve to get pampered. The Moms can delight lose themselves in massages, facials and manicures and pedicures. And if you’re a Mom yourself, you get the best of both worlds spoiled, as you deserve too. These give the Moms a chance to bond, as well as have some much-needed “me-time” to unwind. You can make this spa session more relaxing and soul soothing by lighting up some jasmine scented candles and playing some soft Zen music.
5 p.m. – Once the Moms are relaxed and feeling good, have them all caravan over to your house, or someone’s house, for an afternoon barbeque with the whole family. By having an outdoor gathering, you will essentially be creating a more casual and laid-back atmosphere, which is perfect when having all the Moms together.
Also, you can book your favorite bbq & grill bars and restaurants in case you want to have some fun outside home.
Here are a few tips to make it go as smoothly as possible:
Keep everything simple and sorted, invite all the dads as they’re great at grilling. Choose a variety of barbeque options to suit every mom’s tastes, you can opt for something classic and basic like grilled mushrooms, vegetables, kebabs or you can opt for something fancy like grilled fish, steak, roasted chicken, sausage skewers or maybe just go plain Indian with all the tantalizing tikka’s and mouthwatering kebabs? Also, put out plenty of side dishes, like watermelon, olive and feta salad, bbq potatoes, Asian sesame salad and nachos with salsa.
If you have to cater to a mixed crowd then we will suggest you have varieties, you can have refreshing cocktails and mocktails to beat the summer, like rose sangria, coconut water champagne fruit punch, pina colada, Strawberry chamomile Paloma, watermelon mojitos and the love potion cocktail.
You don’t have to go over the board with the décor but small touches to show everyone that you put some efforts. Decorate the tables with some fresh flowers and you can also create centerpieces using chic candle holders, beautiful candles and flowers. You can opt for scented candles to set the right theme and ambiance in your party. Set the food in buffet style, keep chairs at a distance so there’s enough room to walk around.
Just because we are suggesting you to play some games that doesn’t mean you have to play childish musical chairs, you can pick some interesting and adult-ish games like Never Have I Ever or truth and dare.
We hope that our Mother’s Day Itinerary brings all the moms and kids together on a personal level while helping them unwind from the daily hectic schedules. It has to be neither complicated nor formal, as you know that women just want to feel loved and appreciated by people she loves the most.
