Clever Mother’s Day at-Home Celebration Ideas
This Mother’s Day may not be the same as what we’ve all experienced before especially amid ongoing Covid lockdown restrictions. Here are some ways to celebrate a socially distanced Mother’s Day - whether you’re in the same town with your mom or catching up from many miles away. Make mom feel extra-special with these Mother’s Day lockdown ideas that you can do from the safety of your home that will definitely bring her some much-needed cheer.
Idea 1: Go on a Picnic
If you live near the same area with your mom, opt to take a walk in the fresh air. Then, surprise mom with a pre-packed picnic basket. You can also take the whole family and keep each other company while still remembering to observe social distancing.
A garden picnic is always a good idea too and can really lift everyone’s mood. Find inspiration in our Picnic Party Supplies to complete your setup.
Idea 2: Breakfast in bed
If you live with your mom, you can also spoil her with breakfast in bed or a cup of coffee in bed. If not, you can also consider sending her some of your signature, home-cooked breakfast specialty that you can personally drop off to her place. Don’t forget to include a handwritten note too! Otherwise, you can always order a surprise breakfast-in-bed hamper delivery in advance, that’s stacked with healthy and nutritious breakfast choices from her favorite local baker and deli.
Idea 3: Go old school: send flowers and balloons!
Have fresh flowers and Mother’s Day Balloons delivered at home to your beloved mom. These are instant mood boosters and a sure-fire way to make her feel appreciated.
Idea 4: Decorate Her Front Door or Porch
If you are fortunate enough to live nearby your mom, you can also surprise her by decking out her doorway with some cool Mother’s Day decorations, a wreath of spring flowers, or even sweet notes and photos of her grandkids.
While you’re at it you can even organize a porch party while still trying to keep your distance. Set up a table with breakfast or lunch from her favorite local restaurant. Create a lovely table setting and find ideas from our dedicated Mother’s Day party tableware collection.
Idea 5: Go on a virtual happy hour: set up a Skype, Facetime, or Zoom call
Schedule a catch-up via video call, conference call or even a good old-fashioned chat with family members around the globe. You can also arrange a lunch, dinner or at-home afternoon tea together – online. Treat your mom to a delicious meal and consider a special restaurant delivery or takeaway to give her the night off.
