Mother’s Day Lunch


I cannot believe it is Mother’s Day soon – where is the time going? Usually older people say that, but my brother, sisters and I feel it too! We would love to plan a special Mother’s Day Lunch for Mummy to show her how much we love her. We would like to do it at home, so she can relax whilst we sort out everything.

It would be lovely to ask my Nana (and Grandad!) over too, as Nana is Mummy’s mum and helps us all so much. We don’t entertain very much at home, so have been thinking about what we would really like to get, to make it a special meal.

Mother's day lunch

  1. New table linen – a lovely gift for Mummy too. Linen Me have some gorgeous matching sets.
  2. A new dinner set, again a lovely gift for Mummy to keep and use on special occasions. There are some beautiful Harris Scarfe dinner sets that she has seen.
  3. Fresh flowers for the table. There are some stunning ideas on this website, maybe we could have a go at making our own.
  4. Mummy loves napkin holders, but has never treated herself to some. It would be so nice to get some for her.
  5. We would like to make Mummy some name place holders which would be a keepsake for this special meal too.

Obviously we would also need to plan the meal itself, Mummy’s favourite is pasta, or a roast beef dinner with yorkshire pudding, cauliflower cheese, roast potatoes, carrots and broccoli. She would love garlic mushrooms to start, and toffee or raspberry pavlova for desert. YUM! Add a nice glass of chilled Rose wine and it would be perfect!

So, we now just need to save our pennies, and get some help to order everything! Mother’s Day is 6 March this year, so not too far away. What will you be doing to celebrate Mother’s Day?


  1. Sounds like a lovely Mothers Day. Normally we go to visit an Orchid Farm in Sussex and take my mother in law and my mum as we all like Orchids. It also solves the gift issue to as they get to pick their own. We try and get a photo each year. Wishing your mummy a great Mothers Day. x

  11. Gosh it really isn’t that far off is it? We normally go my mother in laws as I lost my own Mum a few years ago. I do fancy just being with my own kids though so maybe we’ll do something different this year x

  12. I’m in australia for it so not sure what we’ll be doing. Their mothers day is actually a different date to ours. I love having new table linen and place names. I just don’t entertain enough to have nice things like that x

  23. Mother’s Day is only four days before my birthday this year and my other half will be away preparing for his law exams so it’ll just be my boy and I. I hope you all have a lovely Mother’s Day whatever you do 🙂 x
