Now that the crafty Mother’s Day gifts are done let’s talk about the celebration. I’m not a cook myself, nor is anyone else in my family, so when it came to Mother’s day growing up my mom still cooked just like any other holiday. I do not recommend this! If you’re like me and have butter fingers in the kitchen the only advice I can give is to get take out, eat out, or get one of those great frozen lasagnas from the store, anything so that your mom doesn’t have to cook and worry about all those dirty dishes. Once you have that figured out then you can get back to worrying about the fun stuff like decorating. Here are a few ideas to help spark your creative mind. A theme is always nice and a great way to find focus….family, flowers, spa day, colors, etc.

These are some garland ideas I just adore from Melanie, guest blogger on Oh, Hello Friend

Decorative chair covers can be made with simple ribbon, fabric, paper and even a pillow case or a twin sheet.

Origami Flower Bouquet from Amandakay82 on Flickr. Click HERE for instruction on how to make these beautiful tulips. Or if you want to mix it up a bit try mixing in a few lilies. Click HERE for more easy instructions.

Felt Flower Bouquet from American Crafts Studio. If you think outside the box, these beautiful flowers can be make with any scraps of fabrics, paper, felt and buttons you have laying around the house.
And don’t forget those great tin can planters you made! Here are some great spring decorating ideas from Country Living.

And last but not least, it wouldn’t be Mother’s Day without throwing a little Martha Stewart into the mix. I grew up reading the magazines and watching her show every Saturday with my mom. If it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t even know the magic that is Martha.
