Mother’s Day is celebrated on 8th May every year. The day is special for mothers as it recognises the indispensable role that they play in the lives of every individual. It is a celebration of motherhood and maternal bonds. In recent years, people celebrate not just their birth or adopted mothers on this day, but any individual who plays or has played a maternal role in their lives like your sasuma. Although just one day is definitely not enough to show the izzat that you hold in your heart for her, nonetheless, it is better than not recognising them and their immense contributions at all. It is a day for celebrating the occasion in a meaningful way.
So, here are 10 Mothers’ Day surprise ideas for you to #BeALittleMore proactive in making the day a memorable one for your Momma.
5 Party Ideas To Make Mother’s Day Special
Plan a surprise for Mother’s Day with these party ideas:
1. Fashion Show Party
This is one of the best Mother’s Day party theme ideas that you can think about. You may have participated in a fashion show on one of those special days in school or college, or staged a mock fashion show with your buddies during a sleepover. But, your mom? You bet she hasn’t been to one. So, here’s your opportunity to give her the experience of a lifetime by organising one for her, where her friends and family will also be invited. Get sashes tagged ‘Funkiest Mom’, ‘World’s Classiest Mom’, ‘Go-Getter Mom’, and the like ready for the mom rockstars after they sashay down the ramp. Don’t forget to tell your mom and your guests to be dressed in their best while inviting them to the show.
2. Award Show Party
Mommies deserve to be pampered once in a while since they do that for you all throughout the year. On this special day, make her feel like she means the world to you by hosting an award show party. Call her women friends and family members over to your home or at a designated venue, and felicitate with OTT awards like ‘World’s Best Singer’, ‘World’s Smartest Cop’, ‘World’s Best Alarm Clock’, and other similar ideas. They can share a good laugh while being called over for these fun awards.

3. Cocktail/Mocktail Party
If you are already a bartender professionally or for your friends, well and good, you’re sorted. For those who aren’t, why not pick up the skills and become one to make your Mom’s day special. Common it’s not such a big deal. All you need to do is browse through some recipe books or the internet (even easier) to select a few classics for the party. Stick to the basics like Bloody Merry and Pina Colada, so you can’t go wrong with your mixing skills.
4. High Tea Party
Plan an intimate get together of just you and your Mom, inviting her to high tea at home or somewhere outside. If she is an outdoorsy person, take her out on the day to a quaint cafe or somewhere fancy, whichever she prefers. Treat her to the tea and snacks of her choice, or surprise her with your order. In case you are planning the party at home, stick to whites or pastels for the table decor to introduce a sophisticated touch. Decorate the table with your Mom’s favourite flowers and place some desserts to give her a sneak peek of what she can expect.
5. Brunch/Lunch Party
If you want to go all out and spend more time with your mom, a brunch or lunch date with her would be a better idea than meeting her over tea. Same as in the case of a tea party, take her out or host her at home, whatever you know she will like. For lunch or brunch out, select her favourite restaurant or zero in on one that has been on her must-visit list for some time. Ensure that you take enough snaps of yourself with your Mom so that you both can cherish them forever.

Plan a surprise for Mother’s day with these home decor ideas:
1. Banner Of Fresh Flowers

Make not one but several of them if you want to deck up the entire place with flowers.

2. Floral Glitterati
If your Mother Dearest loves glitter, then you have to give her just that as Mother’s Day decorations, right? If you think you can make it on your own, then that’s done and dusted.

Garland flowers and make a chandelier design out of them.
4. Wooden Plaques As A Name Plate
Get hold of a suitable wooden plaque that can be converted into a nameplate as a part of your Mother’s Day decorations.
