My Mom is a huge part of our lives and I'm so excited she's coming to visit in just a couple days! She'll be here two weeks---which means that we'll get to spend Mother's Day together! The kids are thrilled---and so am I. Last week, I shopped for a few gifts for the kids to give her and found several cute things at the one stop shop American Greetings display at Walmart.
This display features cards, bags, and wrapping materials from American Greetings, as well as gift items like mugs, flowers, stationery, and purses. It's a great place to find a nice gift for the special mom in your life, and it's quick and easy since everything is right there together. Look for the display in your Walmart near the greeting card aisles.
It's really hard having my mom so far away from us now. When we lived in Oregon, we spent time together several times a week. Now that we're 1,800 miles away in Arkansas, we only see her twice a year. The kids are growing so fast and I hate that she's missing out on our day to day stuff. It will be so great to have her here a couple weeks to enjoy the sunshine and a fun Mother's Day party outside!
I picked out a stationery set, since she and the kids love to write pen pal letters to one another, and I know she'll love this cute travel cup. It's her favorite color and has a perfect Grandma phrase on it: What Happens at Grandma's Stays at Grandma's. (That includes messes...yay!) That is totally something my mom would say.
I grabbed a pretty bag and some tissue for them to gift it in and picked out a pretty card to top it off. There were so many beautiful cards that it was hard to choose, but I think she'll like this tea one as we have fun tea party memories together. I like how all the colors match, too.
It's so rare that we get to spend time with Mom so I want to make this Mother's Day extra special! I've been testing out some recipes the past couple weeks to find some pretty things to eat during our Mother's Day party. A couple weeks ago, I made a Strawberry Teatime Torte that turned out absolutely delicious and looks gorgeous on a tea table.
This past weekend, I made Cucumber Sandwiches to celebrate the new Princess Cambridge. These would also go excellent on our party table. Any time I garnish with fresh flowers, it just adds that extra beautiful specialness to the presentation. Plus, these begonias match the colors on Mom's gift bag!
I think this is going to be one of the best Mother's Days ever! How will you celebrate Mother's Day this year?
