Whether you’re a first-time mom or are celebrating Mother’s Day with your second child, it can be difficult to come up with ways to celebrate. As a first-time mom, you’re probably still in that puddle of hormones called the newborn phase.
On top of that, many times mothers find themselves juggling work and home life while still trying to figure out how they fit into their new family dynamic.
To top it off, everyone is always so busy on holidays and finding time for yourself can feel almost impossible. Whatever your plans are, here are three ideas on how to make this year’s first
Mother’s Day the best one yet!
Host a Brunch at Home
Hosting a mother’s day brunch at home for fellow moms is a sweet way to celebrate your new role and honor all of your friends and family who supported you throughout your pregnancy.
To pull off a delicious meal, bring together people with different strengths—you’ll need someone on hand who can put together an impressive spread, someone who knows what wines pair well with breakfast foods, and someone who’s experienced in making sure things run smoothly (because you’ve got enough on your plate).
Another great way to host brunch at home for you and your friends is to include the kids so that you and your mama friends can celebrate with the little people that turned you into moms in the first place.
How cute would a mommy and me brunch be with matching or coordinating outfits such as these cute girls rompers? Be sure to have kid-friendly foods and activities.
You’ll also want to make sure to bring dads so that they can watch the kids while the ladies enjoy mimosas over girl talk.
Take Mom Out for an Afternoon Tea
Taking Mom out for an afternoon tea is a fun way to celebrate her special day. Whether she’s a tea aficionado or is simply looking for an excuse to sip on something warm and comforting, she’ll enjoy a delicious cup of loose-leaf or herbal tea paired with a tasty assortment of finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones, and other delectable goodies.
If your budget allows it, consider choosing an especially luxurious location such as The Ritz-Carlton. Be sure to take your Ergobaby’s lightweight stroller so that you can take in the scenery with baby by taking a stroll on the grounds.
Incorporate Family Traditions
Many moms want their first Mother’s Day with their own children to be special. To make a gift from your child even more meaningful, consider incorporating family traditions, such as creating a scrapbook for your mother filled with photos of you and your child at various stages in life or gifting something meaningful such as these Honey anvd Ice bracelets.
Or if you have an heirloom that has been passed down from previous generations, use it on her first Mother’s Day.
A cherished item will help remind her of how much she means to you and your family. If you don’t have a tradition, now is a good time to start one of your own since you’ve started your own family.
We hope you get to celebrate in your own way using some of these tips to make it an extra special one. Happy Mother’s Day!
