It’s a picnic
Let Mom kick back on a picnic blanket and enjoy the amazing meal you have prepared for her. After all, she deserves it after everything she does for you all year. This is something that can be done inside or out depending on the weather.
Where to go?
Does Mom prefer a park, the wilderness, or your backyard? Make sure it is a place that you think SHE would enjoy. On the way there stop by a farmers market if you think Mom would like it. If the weather’s not great have a picnic in the living room.
Food to bring:
Keep it simple and portable. Finger food is great so you don’t have to bring as many utensils Dad will more than likely have to be part of the process to surprise Mom and make her feel truly special.
- Easy and yummy food options:
Peanut butter and jelly or turkey sandwich
Chopped up vegetables with dip or hummus
Cheese and crackers
Chip and salsa
Cubed fresh fruit
Homemade cookies and brownies
Salads are a light option, but they do require utensils.
What does mom like? Bring an assortment of beverages for the whole family and don’t forget the cups/glasses if necessary.
Make sure you bring a blanket to sit on that will fit everyone.
Bring plates, bowls, cups, serving utensils, napkins, bottle opener and utensils to eat with depending on your meal.
Mom may want to just sit and watch the kids and dad play or maybe she wants to participate. It should be up to her on her special day. Make sure to bring toys or activities to keep everyone busy.
Have fun with Mom! Happy Mother’s Day!
