A Mother’s Day blog series. Part 1 of 8

May 3rd, 2008 by Heather Dyer

In this series, we will discuss popular and unique ways of celebrating this special day when we honor our mothers. We will talk about gifts you can make and gifts you can buy. We will talk about cards and flowers and jewelry and poetry. We will discuss just about everything that can be done to make her feel special. So stick around!!!


I imagine that celebrating Mother’s Day is as diverse as the types of moms we can find across the US. No two moms are alike, and determining what makes this day special for your mom is something only you can do. Put forth a very special effort this year to tell her that you love her and appreciate all that she’s done for you and all that she continues to do.

When I was small, we would surprise mom with an orchid corsage that she would proudly wear to church. After a special message about the unsung heroes of today and perhaps a piece of poetry, we’d head to a brunch where mom was the guest of honor. No cooking and cleaning and turns in the kitchen for her this week… no siree. This was her chance to be pampered and treated like the queen she was.

From flowers to homemade gifts created with a child’s popsicle stick collection, gifts were never in short supply. Later in the afternoon, her girlfriends would come over for a very informal tea time. And if her girlfriends were tied up at their own Mother’s Day celebrations, we kids would whip up a pot of hot cocoa and marshmallow krispies to serve at our own type of tea party for mom.

Every part of that day’s events was special and well thought out.

Stay tuned as we countdown the last week before Mother’s Day and supply you with many helpful tips on shopping for or creating your own gifts and celebration plans. Stop by our site and browse our beautiful selection of Mother’s day silk flower arrangements.
