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.

Colorado had a few unexpected snow storms this April and on one of my snow days, I was inspired to add a little touch of spring to my front porch!  I spent less than $10 on the entire project by finding inspiration in my own garden.

I found these grape hyacinth hidden behind an area of grass in my lawn.  I dug them out by ensuring to collect their roots and bulbs in order to feature them where they can be fully enjoyed!


I looked for hardy plants like these violas since they can tolerate up to 20 degree weather to add color and dimension.  I wanted to add these baby daffodils  (narcissus) since they stand out by adding variety of texture and height.


I added a little soil after arranging each plant, and voila!  You can see our snow there in the window background!


Everything is thriving in the Colorado sunshine! Layering plants by height and color is a great way to add depth and character to your pots.  Use your favorite flowers to display your personal gardening style!


I found a few lilies as well to give this pot more depth when everything is in bloom.  Sometimes gardens with perennials need to be thinned out or rearranged to allow for more room for season growth. Adding your perennials to your pots is a great way to add space in your gardens while allowing you to enjoy them before warmer weather planting season!


After a little time, a glass of wine, and a little inspiration, I now have a lovely Colorado spring display with pink tulips to match my fabulous pink patio set!


Happy spring and happy planting!
