Supercharged ‘Spoil Your Mum” Planning Tips
- Make the porridge the night before and place in the fridge then scatter with chopped nuts and in season berries or seasonal fruits in the morning. Serve with milk of choice. Place it on a tray and hand pick some flowers from the garden for a natural and authentic touch. Once she’s had a lie in then bring her breakfast in bed.
- Design a home-made card, it can be funny, touching or appreciative. Include a personalized poem.
- Serve lunch in her favourite part of the house or outside in the garden or in a park near by. Invite other family members or friends to join in on the fun. They can bring a plate of nibbles too.
Happy Mother's Day 🙂
