What to do for Mother’s Day?
With Mother’s Day around the corner, here’s a plan for the day which we have put together to help your special one have an amazing day (or a nudge to those who are planning yours).
8.30am: Breakfast In Bed
An ideal start to the day with all the family working together to create something special for their mum. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy – a refreshing smoothie, a pile of pancakes, smoked salmon or a nice plate of fruit will go down a treat. Pick from our selection of breakfast recipes here.
Everyone loves handmade gifts – for mothers day we would recommend bakes and love hearts. We’ve chosen our top three homemade Mother’s Day Gifts here.
Serve up Eggs Benedict or a special bacon sandwich with pesto – and if she likes a little fizz every now and then, pour a glass of Cava to make her morning. Take a look at some of our favourite brunch ideas here.
1.30pm: A family roast
The ideal way to mark Mother’s Day, a Sunday roast is a great chance to bring everyone together and celebrate all the mums in your family. Try something slightly different for a special occasion, like our Leg of Lamb with Lemon, Mint and Feta Crust.
3pm: DIY Spa Afternoon
Make an Avocado face mask and let mum chill out with a good book, or a well-deserved bubble bath. Simply mash half a ripe avocado until it is as smooth as you can get it, then leave it for her to massage onto her face and leave it for 15 minutes before rinsing off.
Make a night of it on Mother’s Day and throw a mini cocktail party for the woman of the hour. Start with some simple serving suggestions, and try one of the 4 pink gins we’re loving at the moment.
