10 Ways Celebrate Mothers Day While Staying At Home

A little bit of creativity will make this mother's day special 


   I received a gift from Teleflora to facilitate this post.

 Mother's day is every day but one day a year moms get a day that calls for a celebration. This year celebrating mom calls for more celebration as the job of a mom has been quite different and at times difficult. Over a month ago while the world has been dealing with a respiratory virus, moms became homeschool teachers, birthday parade organizers, and virtual event organizers, as their children became their new office mates. Some moms had to work even harder outside the home and may not be able to even hug their child. Like always, moms stepped up to their new roles and have been doing everything they can to make sure their children are safe and loved. Moms have been working hard so their kids will remember the love and laughter that made this time a happy time at home.


Ways to celebrate mom while sheltering in place

Just because we have to stay home does not mean that we can't celebrate mother's day. We just have to be creative and as a mom  has always said: "it is the thought that counts." So while you may not be able to take mom out to dinner or visit your mom, there are plenty of ways to make this day special. As a mom to five kids, I have plenty of ideas of how I would like to celebrate mother's day.

Check out some ideas for celebrating mother's day:

1. Let mom sleep in Most moms do not get enough sleep so give her a day that she can sleep in. While mom is sleeping, take the kids for a walk so the house stays quiet. Forget making breakfast in bed, that way mom does not wake up to a mess in the kitchen. Instead, mom sleep in and let her wake up to a fresh cup of coffee or even homemade iced coffee, that has not been microwaved 100 times and enjoy her coffee in bed.

2. A simple breakfast in bed We moms do enjoy breakfast in bed, we just don't enjoy the mess in the kitchen. So serve mom a simple breakfast in bed, that requires no messy kitchen. My favorite breakfast in bed from my kids is a bagel with cream cheese and hot coffee. If you are able to clean up the kitchen to mom's standards, then make mom some healthy chocolate pancakes.

3. Clean the house Send mom out for a walk, by herself and while she is gone, put the kids to work cleaning the house. Mom will be happy for a day that she does not have to clean.


4. Order take out food To keep the kitchen clean, order take out food or grill outside. Use paper plates so mom does not have to look at dirty dishes. You can even enjoy the food picnic-style. outside so there are no crumbs for mom to look at on the floor. You can also make pizza at home with this delicious pizza recipe.


5. Send her flowers If you are able to find a florist that delivers, send mom flowers. Moms love flowers. Many florists are doing contactless delivery and will make mom a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

6. Send her favorite treat Places are still delivering and you can order many things online. So order mom her favorite box of cookies or another sweet treat. Then let mom enjoy the sweet treat all to herself with no one begging for a bite. You can also bake mom some cookies like these Chocolate Dipped Salted Almond Butter Cookies or Lemon Frosted Rosemary Sugar cookies.

7. A spa day While you won't be able to send mom to a spa, you can buy her the materials to let her enjoy a hot bath at home while you keep the kids entertained. Think bath salts, bubble bath, candles, and her favorite beverage.


8. Let her pick the movie Let mom enjoy her favorite movie without any noise. A great idea is to pack mom some movie snacks along with an electronic device with her favorite movie. Then tell her to drive away from the house and enjoy the movie in the car.

9. Take the kids for a walk Let mom enjoy a quiet house all to herself. So take the kids out for a walk or a long car ride so mom can enjoy a quiet house.

10. Ice cream sundaes Buy mom her favorite flavor of ice cream and all the fixings to make ice cream sundaes. The whole family will enjoy ice cream and a day with mom.

 If this is mother's day is a mom's first, I have some great gifts suggestions for new moms. These are gifts that new moms will love.

Mothers Day is not canceled

 I am sure you can think of other great ideas to celebrate mom. If your mom lives far away, you can send her flowers or a special package with many of these ideas. Just let mom know that she is the best and that she is appreciated. Don't forget to have the kids make her a card as mom's love the pictures that her kids make.

 Teleflora would love to say Happy Mother's Day to all the moms and they would like to thank you for your continuous support. Teleflora made a special video for moms called “A Mother’s Love” and you need to watch it as it is so awesome! Teleflora is still delivering flowers for mother's day and is doing contactless deliveries to keep you safe. I have received many flower arrangements from Teleflora over the years and each bunch of flowers always make me smile.

Happy Mother's Day!
