This year consider doing something a little different by having a garden party fit for a Queen. Use your outdoor living space or your garden area as a place to celebrate mom, something outdoors can create the perfect setting. photo credit: hometalk.com Set out a table under a beautiful tree or pergola and cover it with a piece of fabric for a shabby chic table cloth. Pull out the good china (with her permission of course) and set a beautiful table. Plan your party for the best time of the day for your area. If the weather permits plan a party at night when the stars are shining and the moon is bright, it doesn’t have to be a morning celebration. Use themes that represent your mom. Maybe she is a garden girl and loves the dirt and flower blooms, use the tools she uses in the garden as table decorations use your imagination and make it special for her. If you don’t have a table available you could use a blanket to sit in the garden for a picnic. photo credit: shatterboxx.com Fill a variety of bottles and vases with blooms from the garden to add a punch of color for the event. Little ones love to help in the kitchen and making a meal for mom is one of the highlights. Give your little ones tasks that are age appropriate and make sure to let mom know who did what for the party. Find recipes online and have a list ready for shopping. Use recipes that you can make ahead so that the day itself is relaxed and stress free for everyone. There are really no rules, this is a day to celebrate and enjoy your mom, so make sure you take the time to do so and she will feel like a Queen all year long.
