It’s somewhat tragic that we seldom get to see our parents at their finest moments in the prime of their lives. Actually, we do see them at those moments, we’re just often much too young to fully realize the glory we’re witnessing. It isn’t until we have become parents ourselves and can look back through the lens of experience and perspective to see how amazing our parents were. In these moments, we need to find some way to express directly to our parents just how important they were in helping us become who we are. And so, here are 5 ways to show appreciation to our beloved mother on mother’s day.
1. Cook a meal
Gather your siblings and cook a simple meal for your parents. Google up the recipe of the dishes and shortlist to three dishes. Make sure you are in the age to cook with stove, or you could get an adult to over watch the whole process! 😉
2. High tea session
The concept of Afternoon Tea first started in the mid-1800s as a tradition for the British upper class back when it was popular to have a late dinner. To make it through the duration between lunch and dinner, the upper class would often invite some friends over for tea and cakes in the afternoon. It has becoming an increasingly popular option for those guests who want a shorter chit-chatting session in a beautiful location.
3. Flowers are a must – Don’t wait to order them!
One of the reasons that people love Mother’s Day is that in many cities, it’s one of the first harbingers of summer and warmer weather. Give your dining room a breezy, summery vibe with lots of flowers, and order extras to give to mothers as they walk through the door. Don’t forget: florists will be in high demand on Mother’s Day, so get your order in well in advance. Check on the lastest design here.
4. Clean the house
Yes, the whole thing. Get into the details. Hire a housekeeper for the day if you prefer. Let your mom have a rest day and allow you and your siblings to do the job of the day!
5. Mom’s favourite outdoor activities
Aside from sending flowers and cooking meals for your mother, why not turn off the phone and bring her out to spend time in the nature? Perhaps go for a picnic, a jogging session in the evening, or hike up the hills to catch a sunrise / sunset.
Show her just how much she means to you this Mother’s Day with a perfect present that she’ll love. Spoil your Mom today so she can sit back, relax and have some ‘me’ time.
