Mothers Day made to run smoothly

Planning ahead for Mother’s Day helps make the occasion delightful, fun and relaxing. You won’t have to worry about the finer details because you’ll have everything covered! Whether cooking a meal at home or setting up the extravagant weekend itinerary, you’ll benefit from having a customized checklist of important points to have covered well in advance: tickets, reservations, what to buy, and so on.

This helpful checklist will ensure your Mother’s Day goes with a bang!

Buy Cards — Buy cards, ideally well before Sunday, to get a card well suited to Mum.
Make Cards — if any of the kids are making cards remind them and help them if necessary.
Sign Cards — get the whole family to sign the cards for Mum by Saturday, latest.
Flowers — Flowers sell fast around Mother’s Day. Buy or order a day or two in advance. Pre-order if picking up yourself.
Shop and Order Early — Gifts bought online or through a catalogue take time to ship. Order 2-4 weeks ahead. (However, even last-minute shoppers might be able to get great gifts online, for the extra cost for rush delivery.)
Wrap Gifts — Wrap gifts and attach cards ahead of time. For added impact, place Mum’s gifts in the living room for Mother’s Day morning.
Make Reservations — THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. Restaurants see more business on Mother’s Day than any other day of the year. Make your reservations at least a week in advance, preferably 2-4 weeks. There is nothing worse then arriving at a restaurant and not being able to get a table, it’s even worse on Mother’s Day if that happens.
Buy Tickets — any event on Mother’s Day will probably be well attended. If you plan on taking in a play, concert or sporting event, make sure to purchase tickets in advance.
Fill up the Tank — as a courtesy to Mum and the rest of the family, make sure the fuel tank if full, filling that car takes time and no one wants to go to the petrol station on mother’s day. Who knows if it will even be open?
Check the Weather — Outdoor plans may have to be diverted indoors before a cold and cloudy forecast. Have alternate plans in mind. Be flexible to change. Contingencies make everyone’s life easy.
Check in with the Family — If planning to visit relatives, be courteous by calling a day or two before Mother’s Day, to let them know your arrival time, and ask again if there’s anything else you can bring. Even with plans that involve the immediate family, make sure everyone will be able to attend on time, ready to celebrate Mum.
Kids Finish Homework — Minimize any potential worries that might get in the way of a fun and carefree Mother’s Day.
Cameras Ready — You will probably want pictures to remember the day, so have the camera charged and ready.
