My husband asked me last week what I would like for Mother’s Day this year. And, honestly, all I could think of was that I didn’t want to have to plan a single meal and I didn’t want to have to clean a single dish. No cooking. No cleaning.
You see, my love language is ‘acts of service’. I’ll take getting my car detailed over getting a piece of jewelry any day!
So, when it comes to as special of an occasion as Mother’s Day, for me, sweet and simple is best. Personalized, homemade, thoughtful, these are all of the things that mean the most to me when it comes to gifts.
That’s why I thought that I would show you just a few of my favorite projects I’ve done over the years which are not only simple and sweet but also very friendly to the budget.
If you’re hosting Mother’s Day at your home this year, adding something personal to each place setting is such a charming touch. All I did here was to print out a black and white photo of me and my mom, punched a hole in the corner and tied it onto the napkin with a ribbon. Add a sprig of flowers and you have such a sweet and simple way of saying ‘I love you’. You can see more of this table setting here.
My kiddos always loved bringing me little flowers when we would go on our walks. Actually, my daughter (almost 10) still does it and I can’t even begin to tell you how much I cherish those treasures. So, I thought, why not capture the sweet memory of those moments by creating a necklace so you just carry it with you always. You can see just how easy it is to make this here.
Another simple way to tell mom you love her is to actually spell it out with this adorable Scrabble letter framed art. It’s so easy to make and would be a perfect way to get the kids involved.
And while this project has never been featured here on the blog it IS included in our book ‘Life in Season’.
And, speaking of ‘Life in Season’ (like how I did that segue there?), it too makes such a GREAT gift for Mother’s Day and it’s on sale now at all of these retailers.
It’s always so fun to share ideas and inspiration like these with my Thrifty Style Team each month and we’re back here with you today with more ways to help you bring style to your home without breaking the bank.
Thanks so much for meeting me at the fence today sweet friends,
