may 13th is mother’s day


    Welcome to All in the Detail... I am so glad you are here!

    Today’s post is all about Mom. I know... a little different than my usual posts, but Sunday is Mother’s Day and what would a home be without Mom? So, I thought I would share a few facts about Mother’s Day and a few tips on how to celebrate one of the most important members of the family and the household.

    First off, do you know how Mother's Day got started? It took a young American woman to create a special day that is celebrated around the world. Miss Anna Jarvis, from West Virginia, came up with the idea of honoring all Mothers on the second Sunday in May. The first Mother's Day event was held in 1908. It was a religious service because Miss Jarvis’s Mother had taught Sunday School for 20 years. As part of the service, each Mother was given a carnation because it was her Mother's favorite flower. In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson designated the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day.

    Mother’s Day is an occasion when individuals express the love and respect that they have for their mothers. It’s time to pamper her for all she has done for us over the years. On Mother’s Day, tell your Mom that she will always be important to you and that you will continue to love her forever.


    Here are a few suggestions on what to do for Mom on her special day:

      breakfast in bedf

    Deliver a classic Mother's Day treat: breakfast in bed. Cook her favorite morning foods, mix her a wonderful mimosa, and serve it on a wicker bed tray – don’t forget to place her favorite flowers in a vase on the tray too. Make breakfast a special celebration. Along with the food, deliver some of her presents.

    Take Mother on a trip. Make it as simple as a weekend getaway or as elaborate as a wonderful week long tour together or if Mom lives far away, surprise her with a visit

    Deliver her present by way of a treasure hunt. Invite her for dinner and give her an elaborately wrapped package. When she opens the "gift" - she'll find a clue telling her where to look for another package. Lead her on as long a trail as you think she'll find amusing, with her real present waiting at the end.

    Honor your mother's memory if she's no longer living. Send a donation to her favorite charity, or spend the day working for her favorite cause. Do things she taught you to love, whether it's playing golf, working in the garden or taking your dog for a long walk.

    Thank the women who produced your favorite people - send cards, flowers or notes to the mothers of your friends, even if you've never met them.
