With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I’ve asked my family not to make a big hoopla this year. I don’t mean that in a “don’t do anything, but I’m secretly hoping for a parade” kinda way. I mean it in a “pleeeease don’t do anything” kinda way. Next month I’ll be traveling to see my mom, so Mother’s Day already feels sufficiently covered. I’d rather just keep things simple instead.
But trust me… I normally want the parade.
However, that’s not to say that I don’t have some picks that would brighten someone’s day. I think these are some sweet little ways to pamper mom and they’d also be nice for a friend, neighbor or even teacher appreciation.
Dove Sea Salt Caramel Dark Chocolate.
Honestly, I picked these up because they matched my table decor perfectly, but they did not disappoint. You’ve got sea salt, caramel, AND dark chocolate… what’s not to love?! Fair warning: my family who typically turns down the sea salt and dark chocolate combo devoured these.
Archer Farms Shortbread Cookies.
These little treats are courtesy of Target and they are A-MAH-ZING. They are buttery, sugar goodness looking like an innocent cookie. A little strawberries and cream and they would be the most divine mini-strawberry shortcakes EVER.
Flowers are always a safe bet for Mother’s Day, but I love daisies for their simple elegance.
Decorative napkins are always a fun and practical way to dress up a meal together.
Nothing says “I love you” like cooking for me. Tess has been making this Easy French Toast since she got The Gourmet Cookbook for Christmas. It’s so delicious! Also, this recipe can be made ahead of time… even the night before. Then while it’s cooking, you can really impress by making homemade syrup (from the same cookbook). It will blow your mama’s mind!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s in my life!
To my own mom,
To my sister-in-law, mother-in-law, step mother-in-law, cousin-in-law and aunt,
To my California moms,
To my Oregon moms,
To my blogger moms,
And to all the sweet gals (moms or not) who pour into my kids and make-up for my own shortcomings as a mom. I’m not going to say “it takes a village”… only that I am forever thankful for your presence in their lives.
Have a great day, ladies!
