Simple Mother’s Day Ideas

On Mother’s Day, it’s all about the little things – the small, personalized gestures that show you care. This year, treat your mom to a fabulous brunch, a bottle of her favorite wine or a homemade gift. Here are some simple, yet elegant ways to show your Mother you care.

  • Decorate the table with framed photos of memorable times you’ve spent with mom.
  • Create hand-written menus that she can save as a keepsake of the day; leave space on each menu for guests to include a personalized note.
  • Serve small tasting spoons with a variety of her favorite dishes so she can enjoy a little bit of everything.
  • Create a specialty cocktail and name it after your mother or one of her best traits, such as “Margaret’s Martini” or “The Caring Karen.”
  • Show her (and everyone!) how much you care by preparing a heartfelt toast and raising a glass in your mother’s honor.

To get you started, here’s a cocktail recipe for The Legendary Lady, a twist on a typical iced tea. This delicious drink includes Godiva Chocolate Vodka, a smooth spirit infused with the essence of luxurious Godiva chocolates, for a hint of sweetness that your mother will love.
