Mother’s Day Flowers

Thinking outside the box for presents doesn’t always turn out right.  How about, for Mother’s Day, we think inside and outside the box.  Is that possible?  Sure!

Inside of the box: Flowers.  Typical Mother’s Day present

Outside of the box: Flowers.  In a different form other than those that are given to us from Mother Nature or add a little twist to the real ones.












You can find small items that she likes and attach them to the vase that the flowers are in.  Pick up some mascara, candy, lipstick…etc.  She will be thrilled to see that you have remembered what her favorites are and that you bought her a beautiful bouquet of flowers.  Try bringing her out flowers with her breakfast, too!












Another gift idea that makes the flower arrangement less boring is to make your own arrangement!  If your mother loves to clean then here is a gift idea that is just for you!  Get blue and white flowers.  Any type of flower will do.  Go buy all of her favorite cleaning products that you always see her using around the house and fill up an entire basket.  Then, put the blue and white flower arrangement all through the basket so it looks the way you want it to.  You can add bows and different accessories if you would like to spiff it up a bit.













One of the last ideas that I have for you is to get a gift that has flowers on it.  A nice ring with your family member’s names on it is a wonderful idea.  It lets her know that the whole family picked it out and that they all appreciate her very much.  Other items can be found with flowers on them that would play a sentimental role on Mother’s Day.  Get her a pair of slippers with pretty posies on them that say GREATEST on one foot and MOM on the other.

You will get inspired to create your own ideas that involve flowers and then every Mother’s Day will be a breeze!

Use Your Favorite Games As Decorations

Decorations that are extremely fancy look great but something that is made with your own hands and creativity is better.  Pick out one of your favorite childhood games or one of your child’s favorite games.  Buy a plain picture frame and make sure to have a picture of your family ready.   Take pieces from the games you picked out and glue them on the frame.  You will have a frame that shows your favorite game and also a decoration that is very creative.

Switch Up The Living Room

Sitting in the same spot gets old after a while, right?  That is how your couch feels when it is in the same exact spot year after year.  Change the way your living room is set up to make a change in your life.  Your husband won’t be staring at the same wall any more and the kids can all sit on the same piece of furniture to watch T.V.  Grab a cheap couch cover or even a colorful bed sheet and use it on the couch to liven up the atmosphere.  Change is sometimes good.  Especially if you have had the same living room setting for 10 years.  Use this as a weekend activity so you can really think about what you would like to do with the room arrangement.

Get Funky

Need a splash of color in your house?  Buy a painting that has hundreds of different colors in it and hang it up in any room of the house.  Putting a funky piece of art in your house will liven up the mood.  Even if you are a person who likes to color coordinate, you can do find art too.  You will find many different paintings at places like T.J. Max and Marshalls.  They are cheap and stylish for any room in the house.  Matching many colors to a room where there are only two main focus colors can be a bit difficult but I assure you that it is possible.  Just find a piece of art that has those two colors in it and also many other colors.  It is that simple.  You will fill up your room with a lot of life and your family will also enjoy looking at a painting on the wall that gives it edge.  If you don’t mind spending a little money, grab something that takes up the whole wall.  It might cost a lot, but if you don’t mind it just buy it!
