Happy (almost) Mother’s Day!
If you forgot that it’s THIS Sunday, I recommend flowers, a sincere card, and/or jewels.
For Mother’s Day, I planned a surprise dinner for all of the moms in my life. As it may go with surprises, sometimes they don’t happen because, you know, people don’t know what’s going on and stuff, my mom goes to the hospital, scheduling gets rearranged, so forth and so on…but as it goes with life, you keep going!
I just wanted to share with you the dessert table I prepared for Mother’s Day with the theme “A Mother is a True Gem.”
I think that next year I’ll expand upon the idea and invite everyone. And by everyone, I mean that if you have a mom and I like you, your mom is my mom. If you’re a mother figure, you’re my mom. “Mom collecting” comes in handy when you’re hungry and too lazy to cook 🙂
The menu for the dessert table was simple: a cake with hard candy “jewels,” strawberry and vanilla cupcakes, cake pops, white chocolate and vanilla covered pretzels, white chocolate cake pops, and beverages.
I wanted to go for a simple elegance, and not too much “bling,” which I did by using glitter card stock in the theme colors, as well as, diamond gems, jeweled blue tone fabric and ribbons, silver accents (those are pipe cleaners on the cake pop sticks!), and glitter!
If you are blessed to still have a mom in your life, let her know you love her…more than once a year 🙂 Be grateful for the mother figures in your life, especially if they have their own children. That’s pretty rock star of her to love on you (and feed you) too! And if you’re a mom (or trying to be one) it’s a pretty phenomenal gig and you’re all treasured beyond measure.
I hope that you have a…
