Cards are sealed and gifts are wrapped… now it’s time to make this Mother’s Day one of the most memorable yet!
We’ve gathered a few ideas to add a special touch to your Mother’s Day celebration:
Arrange a homemade spa day. Did you know you could create a facial treatment with everyday ingredients in your house? Erin Sullivan, our Wine Sisterhood personal sommelier, spent a morning with the “Green Beauty Queen” Christine Trice whipping up some beautifying home facial recipes and shared it all on Wine Sisterhood TV. Of course, in true Wine Sister-style, these recipes incorporate a drop or two of wine. Relax and enjoy time with your mom this weekend – or do a little pampering for yourself – creating some delicious skin treatments. Learn how in this Wine Sisterhood TV episode.
Create a brunch spread. Let these brunch bread bowls add some whimsy to your meal. Pick up crusty bread rolls, spread some favorite toppings on a table or countertop, and you’ve got the makings for delectable brunch dishes. Need a few ideas on what ingredients to pick up? We’ve got a some yummy filling ideas including wine pairings to help make your Mother’s Day brunch – or any occasion – a big success.
Fire up the grill. Who says Mother’s Day festivities have to happen in the morning? May is the perfect month to venture back outside for an afternoon of fresh air and open spaces (even if it is only as far as your backyard). After you check the weather forecast, get to work marinating your meat and chopping up your salads for a Mother’s Day Spring kick-off. We think Purple Cowboy Tenacious Red always pairs well with barbecue. Or pour some Middle Sister Sweet & Sassy Moscato over sliced peaches, and you’ve got yourself a dessert treat!
Whatever you choose to do for your mom this year – or for yourself – remember that good food and laughter is part of the perfect recipe for a memorable time. We wish all the moms out there a very happy Mother’s Day!
