Becoming a mother for the first time is one of life’s pleasures; a time filled with a mixture of emotions. So, embracing and experiencing your first Mother’s Day is sure to be wonderful and a momentous occasion.
So, how do you get the most out of the day?
Breakfast in bed
For first Mother’s Days the responsibility tends to fall to Dad to make it special. Breakfast in bed is always a good idea for special occasions. Whether it’s pancakes with a delicious topping, smoked salmon with scrambled egg, or a selection of pastries including blueberry muffins, cinnamon swirls and pecan plaits. Whatever you decide, make sure it’s not her usual cereal or toast!
A nice cup of tea or coffee and a glass of fresh orange juice will compliment the breakfast nicely, but if you like, a glass of buck’s fizz won’t go amiss either. Don’t forget to decorate the tray with a little bouquet of fresh spring flowers, or her favourite flowers. Popping them into a clean jam jar with a pretty bow around it will definitely make a good impression.
When it comes to a Mother’s Day card, a homemade one will always be a warm and welcoming sight. You could paint the child’s hand or foot, and make a print on the card with the date and how old the child is. Remember to use child-friendly paint and be aware that it can become messy, so cover the surrounding environment well! Make sure all paint is washed off the child once you’ve finished making the print too, or Mum may not be happy!
Get out and about
Why not take everyone out for a spring walk in the sunshine, in the countryside or by the sea. Wrap up warm and take a flask of your favourite hot drink to have along the way. Take in all of the gorgeous surroundings, and don’t forget to take photos so you can look back on the day and reminisce. If, however, the British weather let’s you down, plan a duvet day with lots of her favourite films or television series’ to watch.
A pub lunch is a great option if you’re out and about – it will save Mum cooking, and of course having to do the lovely task of of washing up! Once home, why not let Mum have a nice soak and pamper in the bath, light some candles, play some soft music and set a really relaxing scene.
Oh, and on a side note, in no shape or form is Mum to do any housework or cooking!
Once the day starts to draw to an end and your baby is sound asleep, snuggle up on the sofa and put your favourite snacks in a bowl, pour yourself a glass of whatever you like and relax, for tomorrow normality will resume!
