Sweet Treats For Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day to all you mummies out there. This year I made an extra effort to make this day special for my mum. She was up out early this morning so no chance of breakfast in bed, instead my dad, youngest sister and I prepared a lovely lunch for when she got home. The table was laden with pink and purple flowers in jars and vases, a bottle of bubbly, an enormous Toblerone (mum's favourite), a golden platter of homemade blueberry muffins I'd made the night before, a plate of delicious macaroons from M&S (I saw them on Megan's blog and knew I had to hunt them down!) and a handmade card made by my youngest sister, with me being the "artistic director".

























Mum arrived home shivering from the cold and the almost-snow. She was really surprised by the spread we'd set up, and after a lovely lunch of soup and rolls, we dinned on the sugary treats and champagne. My grandparents also came to visit, so we had a sleepy Sunday sitting by the fire and chatting. We had a lovely and relaxing day and I'm sure a few of us may have nodded off, why is it so tiring doing nothing?

  1. Aww this is so sweet, I kind of wished I made more of an effort into it now. I can't even believe it has started snowing again either.
    I literally came SO CLOSE to buying macaroons for her aswell ♥

    1. Thanks, I don't usually make this much of an effort, but I felt like she deserved it. Every time it snows it makes me want summer even more! You should have, they're such a lovely little treat, and I never knew they were so tasty!! :)

  2. Aw, this sounds like a lovely Mother's day. I don't think we have Mother's day till May(?) in the States, so I still have some time to figure out what to do, but baking something nice is always a good idea!

  8. That's right, you have mother's day earlier on the other side of the world. It's not till May for us, right near my mum's birthday, so she gets pretty much an entire week of treats. Anyway, those treats look delicious :D
