On Mother’s Day, we want to take the time to make the day special and let our mom’s know how important they are in our lives.

If you have arrived at today still unsure of what to give her, here are a few ideas to get you started:

1 Make her a Mother’s Day Brunch. Gather her favorite people (you and the rest of your family) into the same room for a few hours and dedicate the day to honoring her!

2 Make her a new garden pot for her patio or window.

3 Take her to see a move matinee. See Mother’s Day listings here.

4 Take her for a drive in the mountains.

5 Give her your favorite photo of the two of you or her whole family.

6 Bring her a special bottle of wine or champagne that she wouldn’t normally splurge on herself.

7 Make her a bubble bath gift basket.

8 Treat her to a massage or spa facial.

9 Run her errands for a day (grocery shopping, picking up her dry cleaning, mowing her lawn).

10 Get her a gift card to Ulta Beauty Supply (they carry beauty products, fragrances and hair care).

11 Plant her a Mother’s Day tree in her honor.

12 Write her a love letter thanking her for everything she has done to make your life special.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the incredible mothers I know and who are out there in the world. We wouldn’t be where we are without you.

This entire spring pot cost less than $25 to make (including the pot, stand, and moisture control potting soil but not including the solar dragonfly).
Displayed in this pot are:
-1/2 package of pansies
-Columbines
-Light purple Violas
-Dark purple and yellow Violas
I selected these plants because they are each very hardy (up to - degree temperatures) and do not require much sunlight. Since I live in Colorado and have a shaded, north facing patio, these factors were very important when selecting my plants.
Next, I created a spring door ornament in place of a wreathe!

If you follow me on Pinterest, you know that I am obsessed with creative ideas and all things Hello Kitty and flowers as found in my "Garden Inspirations", "Hello Kitty" and "Make Something Special" Boards.
I have seen similar ideas for door ornaments or wreathes on Pinterest and have even posted a few in my "Holiday Cheer" board.
This Spring Door Adornment cost less than $8 to make and will hopefully last through May.
The items I used to make this hanging pot include:
-Over the door hook (you can also use an adhesive one)
-Hello Kitty ribbon to hang the pot
-Bucket/pail I found in the Easter section of retail store
-1/2 package of Pansies
-Daffodil
The bucket should get enough sunlight from my patio without over drying the plants. Since this is a metal pail and doesn't have drainage, I plan to only water this plant when the soil feels dry and will mist the actual flowers a few times per week. And since it is Colorado and we should still be due a few more snow showers and frost, I will most likely plan to bring this pot in during freezing temperatures or snow.
This is super cute and will look great for Easter!
