We all want to make Mother’s Day extra special for the superwomen who enrich our lives on a daily basis while they conform to reside in last place.
Eating out can sometimes burn a whole in our wallets and throwing a beautiful, lavish party requires work and, again, more money.
The simplest gestures, especially if straight from the heart, can speak volumes and that is what we wanted to go for with our Mother’s Day party.
The following is how we celebrated Mother’s Day last year with style, grace, and on a budget.
For unique and budget-friendly party supplies I always turn to The Dollar Tree.
At that point, we still didn’t have our new dining set and we were using our foldable table and chairs. But we still wanted to make the best of it 🙂
I got disposable table covers and faux flowers to scatter on the table. The table runner is actually a full table cover that I used as a runner instead.
The main flowers were a doggie mom gift from my mom so I used them as the centerpiece.
My hubby made the sign that says “Moms Rule” out of black and white poster boards that were also purchased from The Dollar Tree.
For added elegance, we used a few of our wine glasses and turned them upside down with a small candle on top. Inside the wine glass we placed a single white flower.
Our mommas that attended (my mom, grandma, and very special mom friend) are not usually healthy eaters so we wanted to provide delicious and nutritious food they would appreciate.
Also, we made sure to be the chefs instead for they spend more than enough time preparing delicious meals for us.
Veggie & Chorizo Platter with an irresistible herb cream cheese dip
Roasted Lemon & Herb Chicken
Belgian Waffle Dessert Station
Fruit & Herb Infused Water
Everything was homemade and devoured! I hope to be able to share the recipes soon.
We decided to make our own gifts for the special ladies and this is what we came up with…
We bought mugs from The Dollar Tree and wrote our favorite fun messages on each of them. I will be sharing how to do this and make it last through hand washes on a later post!
The mugs were filled with goodies that were also from The Dollar Tree: nail polish, Dove chocolates, and tea bags.
To make the mom’s feel like royalty we bought some amusing pink princess hats (also from The Dollar Tree) for them to wear as soon as they walked in.
Being around incredible company is entertaining enough, however our small group of mommas were a lively bunch!
We set up YouTube and played some of their favorite songs with accompanying lyrics so they can dance and sing their hearts out!
Although our set-up was simple, we made sure our superwomen felt like the grand prize that they all are for their loved ones 🙂
Make sure to honor the mother figures in your life, biological or not, that have given tirelessly and abundantly to those around them.
Happy Mother’s Day!
