Mother’s Day in Quarantine

    This Mother’s Day will be challenging for sure but we still can find ways to show mom our appreciation regardless if she is home with the family or like my mom living alone and in isolation. If you have not already gotten her a gift don’t forget about Amazon. You can get something ordered, on its way, and then share with her what to expect. We will give you a few last-minute ideas. I think most moms just want to spend time with the family so read on for some fun ideas beyond the flowers.

    Bloody Mary Bar

    Having that small get together with mom is always the best so think about having a back-yard event where you can all keep your distance but still have some fun. Consider a bloody Mary bar. Set up all the supplies and mix and let everyone make their own. Go big think bacon strips, lots of veggies, different hot sauces and really anything goes! A Bloody Mary is made with Vodka, tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, garlic, herbs, horseradish, celery, olives, salt, pepper, lemon juice, lime juice, and celery salt. For those nondrinkers it’s just as good without alcohol so the vodka is optional.

    Patio Time

    With all the time at home these days and with the days getting nicer consider getting her a small outdoor fire pit table. Here are a few top choices that your mom will enjoy for many evenings throughout the year.

    Connecting Remotely

    If your mom is remote and can’t be with the family it’s time to have that Messenger, Zoom or Skype call to connect with her. If you have a Facebook account use Messenger if not download Skype or Zoom. Everyone in the group will need to use the same App. As long as you have an internet connection its free. Grandmother may need to be walked through the process in advance but once you get on the call, mom will have fun because she will love spending time and seeing everyone.

    Wine Stuff

    Many moms like wine so listed below are 8 cool wine gifts that she might love.

    You know your mom best so I’m sure you have a plan to make her day special and as always don’t forget the flowers. We hope this gave you a few new fun ideas to ponder. And happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there!
