6 Budget-Friendly Ideas for a Mother's Day Celebration
Honor the most important woman in your life with a party that you can plan and prepare by yourself
There's a commandment that urges children to "honor your parents"—and this weekend, you're given the chance to do exactly that.
While we can make our mom, mama or nanay feel loved and appreciated every day, take it a notch higher with our practical tips for a memorable family meal this Mother's Day.
To make your dining area seem more festive, you can hang Japanese lanterns with butterfly patterns. You can also make festive flowers out of Japanese paper!
Place faux butterflies on top of table napkins, serving plates, and even on your paper lanterns.
Instead of using individual placemats or chargers, you can use table runners! Spread one across the width of the table: each side can serve as a single place setting. For this dining set-up, we used cream-colored table runners.
RL Tip: Don't worry if your table runners don't match! They can bring more color to your table!
You can bake or purchase a classic cake, place it on a simple cake stand, and leave it in the middle of the table. This can serve as the centerpiece for your dining table.
RL Tip: Make your meal even better by serving all of your mother's favorite dishes.
The best meals always end with the family and friends lingering over dessert and coffee or tea. You can entice your guests to stay with a few cups of fragrant jasmine tea.
What girl doesn't like receiving flowers? Surprise your mom with a lovely bouquet. Be sure to attach a handwritten note to express your love and gratitude.
