Mother's Day Luncheon Ideas

“Don’t tell your kids you had an easy birth or they won’t respect you. For years I used to wake up my daughter and say, “Melissa, you ripped me to shreds. Now go back to sleep.” – Joan Rivers.

Being a mum is a tough but incredibly rewarding gig. You have many roles to fulfil as you juggle family life. A mum is a PA, keeping family schedules, booking appointments, setting up play dates, managing the pocket money payroll. A mum also is a public relations whiz, always working to ensure the kids are presentable and well behaved along with providing the adoring fan base (aka extended family) with media releases and photos and are quick to diffuse public outbursts and preventing child from asking awkward questions; an example of mine – upon reading Roald Dahl’s George’s Marvellous Medicine to my daughter I then spent the following weeks having to stop her from asking every elderly person she saw if they

a.) Ate slugs and;

b.) were a witch.

Mums are also nutritionists, dieticians, chefs, photographers, stylists, hair dressers, dental assistants, emergency medic (splinters HURT!), chauffer, seamstress, veterinarian, interior decorator, personal shopper, costume designer, cleaners, security guard, peace keeper, lie detector, entertainer, teacher and above all PSYCHIC with the ability to see out of the back of her head at ALL TIMES! Then there are mums that also add an outside job onto all of this! (To those mums, I salute you!). I once read that if one was to calculate the going rate for each job a mother does, you could not begin to afford to pay her! Amazing!!! So with Mother’s Day around the corner why not gather your fellow Mummy Friends and put together a Mother’s Day luncheon for all of you? Where ever you decide to hold it (home or outside venue) you can get the perfect decorations for it from Australia’s #1 Party Shop. Make it a luncheon where you can all laugh, relax and unwind. Make provisions for children by organising a sitter or two to keep the kids entertained along with their own little lunch and a craft activity table with glitter, stickers, cardboard cupcake boxes, mini pails, paper punches, paper doilies and cupcake decorative wrappers.

For the mums, treat yourselves to a beautifully decorated venue. Go chic and sophisticated, soft and floral or Glam Mum. Once the venue, theme and invitations are sorted the decorations will just flow into the scene and your mum friends will love it. Oh! On the topic of invitations, a while ago I caught a clip on the television of Tori Spelling (my idol) showing a really cute Easter Party invitation that you could easily use for your Mother’s Day luncheon; in a small box place a birds nest with some little eggs and the invitation to the luncheon curled up inside. Of course these would need to be hand delivered – Oh Tori what will you think of next? On each table set up a cupcake stand filled with cakes and biscuits for them to enjoy with their lunch. Around the base of the stand decorate it with flower petals or paper flowers for a pretty touch. Include picture frames and inside them, place quotes by mums and children. Your friends will love reading them and discussing them. You can even incorporate from the range of baby shower decorations like the mini booties and the baby pens as gifts for your guests. If you can, why not have a pamper section set up where they can get a neck and shoulder massage or a mini facial, manicure or pedicure?

You could turn your Mother’s Day luncheon into an opportunity to fundraise – support the Pink Ribbon foundation and have your friends make a donation to attend the lunch. If there are any expectant mums (especially if they are going to be first time mums), set up some cards and little wishing wells and have the guests write a little “motherly advice” for them.

Mums work hard (and play harder!) and what a wonderful way to enjoy it with other mums enjoying food, pampering, laughs all surrounded by beautiful decorations from Pink Frosting. I’d like to finish this story with a quote that my mum wrote in my card for my 21st, and at the time I thought was overly mushy but since becoming a mum it now resonates in my heart:

“Before you were conceived I wanted you. Before you were born I loved you. Before you were here an hour I would die for you. This is the miracle of life.” - Maureen Hawkins.

“Oh Matilda for the love of all things Walt Disney, please CLEAN YOUR ROOM!!!” – Jasmine Jarvis
