How to Celebrate Mother’s Day This Year!

Mothers are like glue. Even when you can’t see them, they’re still holding the family together.
Susan Gale

It’s true, isn’t it? Moms are the glue that hold our families together and they deserve a special day all about THEM. Mother’s Day this year is on May 9 and that gives us a few weeks to thoughtfully consider what we can do to celebrate motherhood, and the women who help create those beautiful and precious relationships with their children.

Events Are Back – Book Now!

If you had tickets for an event in 2020 that was cancelled because of COVID, lots have been rescheduled for the summer for 2021, when our bodies start making their own Vitamin D to protect us from all kinds of health threats! Most everyone we know is “chomping at the bit” to return to life as we knew it in 2019, attending indoor venues like dance, music, theater and Cirque du Soleil acrobatics!

Chris Stapleton, Alan Jackson, Justin Bieber, Hall and Oates, The Eagles, Celine Dion, the Doobie Brothers, Maroon 5, Kane Brown and Earth Wind and Fire are all coming to the Ball Arena this summer and early fall, so get your tickets now! The Ball Arena is selling tickets for these and other concerts, and can pop them or a facsimile in a Mother’s Day card you make yourself (see below) and have something to look forward to once performances resume in warm weather.

Chicago, the Band, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Kenny Chesney, Shen Yun, Bill Maher, Amy Grant, Alicia Keys, Cirque du Soleil, and the Backstreet Boys will all be coming to the Denver area, as well. Boulder events include David Spade, John Hiatt and Los Lobos (at the Boulder Theater) and more! 

Gift Suggestions, Now and Zen

Breakfast in Bed is a Mother’s Day treat, as long as she doesn’t have to clean up the kitchen afterward! Head over to Good Housekeeping for 60 Mother’s Day Brunch Recipes that any mom would enjoy (Blueberry Sweet Rolls, Onion Tarts, Smashed Avocado Toast with Eggs, and Shakshuka, to name a few!). Don’t forget the specialty coffee and mimosas!

Martha Stewart, mom and grandmother – not to mention the home and garden maven and reigning queen of the kitchen, has some ideas for meaningful tributes for Mother’s Day. For chocolate-dipped strawberries and sophisticated cupcake recipes, she has culinary advice, and for the creative options, follow her how-to instructions for pop-up cards with paper tulips and templates and designs that will delight any mother of any age.

For DIY beauty gifts, Martha put together a soothing, exfoliant scrub using green tea and rose sugar, with a few other natural ingredients that can remove impurities and improve dry skin. And if mom likes crafting, make some time for an afternoon mother-daughter, or mother-son, fabric flower/pin-making session with her favorite fabrics. The result will be a family heirloom brooch, with a story, and a floral accessory with meaningful memories.

Make Mom a Card

Reader’s Digest says it best – homemade gifts mean the most. You may still want to buy her something you can’t make, but personalized presents and hand-crafted cards show that you’ve taken extra time and effort to make something special – just for her!

Along with card ideas and last-minute gifts to make, you’ll find helpful ways to express the perfect loving sentiment to mom. 

If your mom lives in another state or country, you can still do things together like take a virtual flower arranging class or go antique-ing online or on a virtual garden tour. Country Living suggestions from 2020 can still make for a fun weekend together in 2021.
