Being a Mom right now means being Mother, Teacher, Chef, Therapist, Emotional Support, and more, all rolled up into one. We rely on love and guidance from our moms in the best of times and right now we need that support more than ever! With Mother’s Day on the horizon and our go-to brunch outing or dinner at her favorite restaurant no longer on the table, we’re getting creative with ways to pamper and celebrate mom from home this Mother’s Day! Read on for ideas and we’d love to hear how you’ll be showering Mom with affection in the comments!
Baking with Mom at Home for Mother's Day!
Cook at home -
A little thing like a stay at home order doesn’t mean you can’t show appreciation for Mom with Eggs Benedict and mimosas at home! Turn your house into her favorite bistro this Sunday and take over cooking (and cleaning) duties to make her feel appreciated with a luxurious brunch or breakfast in bed. Come up with a menu of Mom’s favorites that can be easily sourced during your next grocery store run, or plan ahead for at-home grocery delivery that includes ingredients for the best brunch this side of your living room! Now’s the best time to try out that latest quarantine baking recipe you’ve had Pinned, like Cinnamon Rolls or French omelets!
If you’re not sheltering with Mom, a delivery basket of baked goods, champagne, and OJ left on her front porch is a welcome way to celebrate! Plan a Facetime or Zoom call to toast to each other at a distance, or set up outdoor dining tables at least six feet apart to get in family quality time that she’s sure to treasure.
If Mom’s kitchen isn’t an ideal place to get your bake on, now is the best time to think about a fresh new look! You’d be amazed at what a difference a new tile backsplash and painted cabinets can make, not to mention how easy it is to pull off this upgrade! Her kitchen will feel brand new in no time.
Give Mom the gift of indulgence with a day of serving at her beck and call. There are so many ways to give her an at-home pampering day, from whipping up a facial treatment to serving as her nail technician for a mani-pedi! She’ll love feeling like a queen after self-isolating - who couldn’t use a little shoulder rub and fresh manicure to feel like their old self again?
If distance is an issue, a special delivery gift basket is sure to make her day! Put together a selection of some of her favorites to show up at the front door and surprise her from far away! Put together a pampering package with bath salts, an indulgent face mask, a deliciously scented candle, and a new paperback to read while she soaks in the tub!
Of course any bathroom is more enjoyable when it’s as decadent as this! It’s never been a better time to get hands on and gift Mom a new bathroom, and we’ve got the step-by-step walkthroughs to help you do it yourself! She’ll love the gift of a bathroom facelift with these fresh tile designs!
The black and white geometric pattern of our Nero Marquina And Thassos White 6 Inch Hexagon Marble Mosaic Tile are the perfect way to jazz up a vanity backsplash that Mom is sure to love!
Neutral doesn’t have to mean simple with the interlocking wheel pattern of the Enigma Wooden Beige Marble Mosaic Tile - perfect for someone who likes to decorate in bold colors!
Pro-tip - Groutless tiles are the gift that keeps on giving, since they require less scrubbing and upkeep to keep fresh! You can get the best of both worlds with these luxe tiles that are easy to clean. Check out our guide to groutless tiles and some of the most stunning designs here!
