Mothers Day at Home with Plantation

28th April 2020

Whether your mum lives at home with you or afar, making Mother’s Day memorable, especially this year during these challenging times, is so important. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, there are a suite of creative and touching ways to make your mum feel extra special. Plantation Homes shows you how!

Spoil your mum at home

If mum is with you at home, surprise (and delight) her with a sumptuous breakfast in bed, complete with a newspaper, or her much-loved magazine. You could create some of her breakfast favourites, hotel-style bircher muesli or homemade croissants (you know you can make them and now you have the time to do it!)

Perhaps a Netflix binge sounds like the perfect way to relax, here you will find a list of the best Mother’s Day Movies so you can chill with Netflix with mum and the family.

After her long and lazy breakfast, a pampering bathroom session would also do the trick. Part of your mum’s present could be a cosy, luxurious robe with matching slippers. Hot bubble bath, candles and oils, completes the picture. And don’t forget a glass of bubbles!

At your doorstep

As we spend more time at home, why not use this opportunity to support local businesses who are reinventing themselves to service at home needs? Whether it is having a High Tea at Home by The Wandering Italian, complete with delicious sandwiches and pastries or getting your crafty juices going with DIY pottery kits by Crockd, mum will be tickled pink with such creative ideas to dive into.

Blooming lovely

Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than a big bunch of fresh and colourful flowers! Fragrant and beautiful, flowers will certainly brighten up your mum’s day. We love this cost-effective idea via Pinterest, simply pick a bunch of your mum’s favourites from the garden and wrap them in some paper and affix a homemade swing tag to give it a real personalised feel.

Stay connected

If you are celebrating a remote Mother’s Day this year, why not try ZOOM or Skype to bring in as many loved ones into the conversation? You could even all agree to dress up fancy hats or even wear mums favourite colour. It is guaranteed to be loud and raucous, but your mum will love every minute of it!

For some mums who don’t have the technology, it may be as simple as picking up the phone to check in, making sure that she is okay and send your love. Taking the time for a 30-minute chat may be the highlight of her day, especially during these challenging times. If you are super organised, curate a hand-written letter on some beautiful paper or card and pop it in the mail. There is always a bit of excitement when you find something special in your letterbox other than utility bills!

Get your boogie with it

To really get in the spirit, Plantation Homes has created the ultimate music playlist for the occasion. The Mother’s Day At Home Mix features a bit of Michael Buble, a touch of Lady Gaga and of course, a sprinkling of Billy Joel. Perfect for that bathroom pampering session. You can stream using your Spotify account here.
