Brighten Your Mom’s Big Day

While it seems appropriate to celebrate our parents every day of the year, Mother’s Day is a special time to give your mom the attention she deserves. Show your mother how much she means to you by showering her with love on May 14. We have a few suggestions to help you do everything you can to convey the most important message of all: I appreciate you, Mom!

Breakfast in bed is always a great option, as today is her day to sit back and relax. A yogurt parfait with fruit and granola is an easy and healthy meal to prepare. Presentation is everything, so using a mason jar or wine glass to layer the different ingredients can be a fun way to spice up this simple breakfast. You can even add cool whip or ice cream if your mom has a sweet tooth. Show mom you know your way around the kitchen by making your own granola, which is easy to make and can be customized.

At the Blind & Shutter Gallery, we can help brighten the atmosphere in your home during your Mother’s Day celebration. From now until June 26, our “Celebration of Light” savings event will allow you to purchase some of our best blinds and shades at incredible prices. Breakfast in bed will be even sweeter with a soft morning glow peeking in through new blinds or shutters.

If you’d rather take your mom out to eat, St. Petersburg also has plenty of restaurants serving up brunch on the weekend. On Beach Drive, Cassis and 400 Beach Seafood & Tap House will offer Mother’s Day brunch specials. Both brunch buffets will offer a wide array of breakfast foods for all tastes and preferences. Wherever you’re brunching today, it’s a good idea to book a table early before they fill up.

Now what to get mom for Mother’s Day? DIY gifts aren’t as complex as they may seem. Sure, they require a little more effort than going to the mall to purchase a gift, but they will show your mom you went the extra mile. If you can tell that your mom is in desperate need of a spa day, a DIY bath bomb is a great gift idea, especially because these can be a little pricy. Check out this step-by-step guide to creating a spa-like experience for your favorite lady. She deserves all the pampering in the world!

Keep in mind no matter what you decide to do or make, your mom is sure to love it. After brunch and gifts, be sure to explore the St. Petersburg area. There is always so much to do and see. Come and check out our showroom at 2610 4th Street North, St. Petersburg, FL before your mom’s big day. We’d love to meet you!
