Celebrating Mother's Day the simple way
Posted on April 24 2016
Mother’s Day is a beautiful celebration of wonderful women – the amazing mothers in our lives. Often, however, the meaning behind holidays can get lost under endless gift guides and the stress of purchasing gifts when they’re not really needed or even wanted.
We believe in paring things back and striving for simplicity. For us, Mother’s Day is a unique opportunity to celebrate mum, without the expectations of grand gestures. We often hear our mums saying, ‘it’s the card that counts’, so instead of splashing out on unnecessary things, we’re celebrating Mother’s Day the simple way, and we’d love for you to join us.
A simple way means a beautifully made card with a handwritten message. Thoughtful words, sweet sentiments and lots of love. A simple way means going for a walk with mum, gathering a few flowers or small branches of greenery along the way and adding them to a vase at home. A simple way means considering how to use this beautiful day to contribute to an important cause such as walking in the Mother’s Day Classic with family in tow.
For me personally food is love so I'll be attempting to put all my feelings into a cake -perhaps a Sicilian Orange Cake or if the weather is still warm, a sunny pavlova.
It’s the moments that really count, time spent with family, even if they’re driving you mad. Slowing things down in a world that’s increasingly fast. Being with the people in front of you. We think that’s one of the best things to give anyone, especially our mums. Let’s celebrate with simplicity.
