Do not worry. You just woke up and realised it is Mother’s Day and you forgot to get the flowers and chocolates. Here is our quick and easy guide to some last-minute ideas that will make a big impact and are easy to put together in just a few minutes.
PIMP YOUR FLOWERS
If you can only get flowers from the petrol station, pimp them up with anything from your garden or balcony. Be creative and put together a unique bouquet of your own, wrap it in painted dots (on newspaper) à la Yayoi Kusama for Louis Vuitton. Voila!
CREATE AN ILLUSTRATED SCREENSAVER
Take one of your mum’s favourite travel destinations (have a look at our travel poster on irmasworld.com).
1. Take a screenshot.
2. And install it on your mum’s mobile, she will think of you when she looks at it the next time you call.
MAKE SOMETHING NEW FROM SOMETHING OLD
Take an old swimsuit and style it with some silky flowers or brooches to create a must-have summer piece for her next holiday.
PLAN A PICNIC
For the following Sunday, like this there are two special days and something to look forward to
SPOTIFY FOR MUM
Create a summer playlist especially for your mum.
BREAKFAST OR DINNER
Surprise your mum with a special breakfast like French toast or egg benedict.
If you are not a morning person or a great cook, organise a dinner from your favourite restaurant to serve at home with as many candles as possible to create a warm atmosphere.
