If the idea of celebrating Mother’s Day at home doesn’t sound special enough, we’ve got plenty of ideas to take the day to an all-time elegant high, even in the midst of social distancing! You can’t get much more stylish than Vogue, and that’s where we start helping make this coming Sunday a truly special day!
An Elegant Mother’s Day
Vogue has stepped up to the challenge of the times with a special Quarantine Edition of Mother’s Day at home, and even if you don’t have the silk drapes pictured on their pages, you can still adapt their ideas! From breakfast in bed to morning yoga and stress-release meditation, help mom enjoy the start of her day doing her favorite things!
Kids loving making breakfast in bed for mom on Mother’s Day, but they may need a little guidance (and help cleaning up so mom doesn’t have to!). Depending on their ages and ability in the kitchen, help them plan a simple breakfast from My Kids Adventure.
For a more elegant experience, Brit + Co recommends adding lots of special touches, like a fancy folded napkin, a vase of flowers on the tray, and an elegantly handwritten note! Cathy at Noble Pig will give you a napkin folding primer, and for eats — check out this Stuffed French Toast with a mimosa. Not a bad way to start the day, either!
Create a Day Spa at Home!
Even moms who have to help coordinate their own day will be on board with this one! You can help little ones create this regimen for you, and dads, you can aid in getting all the details set up. Since everyone’s at home these days, everyone can participate in the spa day! Glamour points out that the stress-relieving benefits are perfect for these times
Wear a (Facial) Mask
You will love putting on THESE masks! Elle Magazine features several homemade facial masks that are healthy and natural and can be made from ingredients in your kitchen. Mother Nature Network gives you even more options!
Whether your skin would benefit from an ultra-moisturizing mask or something to improve tone and texture, these masks are made from things like honey, yogurt, and oats!
Let Your Kids Paint Your Nails
Nothing is more special for little ones than to help their mom look beautiful. Why not let them give you a manicure and pedicure? Line up all of your nail polishes and let them choose how they will decorate your fingers and toes. Relax and enjoy their rapt attention—anything can be undone tomorrow with nail polish remover!
Livestream a Fitness Class
This is a perfect gift and activity for mothers who are missing their regular workouts. Good Housekeeping has a list of 25 studios and gyms that are live-streaming a variety of workouts.
As close as you can get to the energy and fellowship of a live yoga class—and the benefit of this class is it’s designed for families. It’s a great Mother’s Day gift—and Mom also gets to spend quality time with the kids!
Make a Special Dessert
Plan on making a special and elaborate dessert that the kids can help with. For a challenging dessert with a vintage flair, try this Swiss Roll Cake recipe from the Pioneer Woman—it’s like the classic Hostess Ho-Ho, but so much better!
Virtual Ideas for a Night Together
If you’re away from your mom this Mother’s Day, you can still give her the red-carpet treatment! Plan a Hollywood night together with her favorite old film. Vogue recommends having her favorite sweet treats and popcorn supplies delivered to her home, then you can watch the same movie “together” from your respective homes.
If your mom is less of a diva and more down-to-earth, Country Living has some ideas about ways to virtually spend the day with her. Binging on fun or uplifting TV shows together (from the Mary Tyler Moore Show to Little House on the Prairie to the Gilmore Girls) works whether you are together or apart. Or a virtual tea party, set up in your respective gardens, would also be a lovely way to spend the day!
Celebrate Mother’s Day at Southshore
The master-planned community of Southshore is a great place to plan all of your memorable holidays. Check out the exciting floor plans and design options of three of Colorado’s finest home builders—Toll Brothers, Taylor Morrison, and Richmond American Homes—for a taste of Life at the Lake.
