Thinking about Carnations, roses, chocolates? How about getting mom a new outfit or surprise her by cleaning house, or taking her out to a movie? There are so many ways to show mom how much you care. Why not give her a complete day of indulgence.
Start the day out with breakfast in bed, serving Chocolate Waffles topped with whipped cream and berries or Blueberry Pancakes. Continue to indulge and surprise her throughout the day, making sure she knows this is her day. Take her to a movie (comedy’s are best). TALK to her, and let her know that she is important in your life, that you value the conversation. She will appreciate the time you spend with her. All mothers can tell you that this is valued more than anything and is the best thing you can do for her.
End the perfect day with the perfect dessert, Strawberry Mousse Parfaits. Make sure you serve the parfaits with a nice fruit tea like berry, orange, cranberry or passion fruit.
The day isn’t over until mom is tucked back into bed along with her favorite book and herbal tea. From start to finish the whole day will be hers, and is sure to be one that will always be remembered.
