Making Mother’s Day as Beautiful as MomDebra
In case you haven’t heard, Mother’s Day is just around the corner (May 13th). We know that everyday is Mother’s Day but it sure is nice to take one day out of the year and set it aside just for mom. To all you mom’s out there, you know what we’re talking about! What is it that makes Mom so special? Is it the way she always knows what to say or how, no matter how old you get, seems to have just the right advice? Could it be her uncanny way to know when you need a hug or how nothing seems to solve a matter quite like sitting on the porch with a cup of tea? No, these aren’t what make Mom special. Mom is special simply because she’s yours, her very essence radiating with beauty and grace. Here’s to you, moms. May we celebrate you each and every day of the year! In the meantime, here are some creative ways to celebrate mom this Mother’s Day.
Remembering a Mom who has Passed
For many of us who have lost a mother, Mother’s Day can be a difficult holiday. Whether you lost your mom too soon or celebrated a long and happy life with her, celebrating Mother’s Day after she’s passed can be emotional and confusing. If you’ve lost a mom, we’re thinking of you. We’ve pulled together a few simple ways you can not only honor your mother’s memory but also celebrate the life she lived.
One of our favorite ways to celebrate a mother who has passed is by creating a keepsake shadow box. You can purchase a shadow box at most craft and online stores. Making them special couldn’t be easier. Simply fill the box with a few reminders of Mom and hang it somewhere special, like near a sunny window or next to a reading nook. Mementos like a favorite pin or brooch, old photographs, and favorite poems are perfect accessories to put in a shadowbox.
We love the idea of hanging a special wind chime in honor of mom on Mother’s Day, its gentle tinkling sounds a reminder of Mom each time the wind blows. Or, you and your children can decorate a stone in honor of your mom/grandma and place it in your garden. Did your mom have a favorite recipe? Why not try you hand at recreating it in honor of her this Mother’s Day? Alternatively, you can show a stranger a random act of kindness in honor of your mom, proving that her legacy of kind warmheartedness lives on beyond her passing.
Make a Day of it!
To those of us who are still blessed to have time with our moms, why not turn Mother’s Day into a fun day out? Take Mom to some of her favorite places like that sushi restaurant she loves or a lovely park for an afternoon stroll. Begin the festivities by enjoying breakfast on the porch and follow up with a little jaunt into town to peruse some of the new goods in store. Our customers love coming to Home Interior Warehouse with their girlfriends for a little wine (on us, of course!) and something new to brighten up their homes. Your mom is bound to find something she loves in our Gift Gallery that’s chock-full of fun, and often humorous, finds. You can even customize many of our furniture pieces, making each piece just as unique as your lovely mom.
If you don’t live near mom or just aren’t sure how you can show her a little extra appreciation, why not send her a personalized gift certificate to Home Interior Warehouse? With over 17,000 square feet of showroom space, Mom’s bound to find something she loves! Our gift certificates are the perfect way to show you care and guarantee Mom will walk away with something she loves. You can purchase a gift certificate in store or online. Sending a little love couldn’t be easier!
Make mom feel special all year long. Hiding little love notes around her house or in her purse, sending thinking-of-you cards and remembering to call are all simple ways to make Mom feel loved. No matter how old you get, you’ll always be Mom’s little angel.
