Memories of your childhood with your Mother are never about the scores you got or the teenage fights or the 8 O Clock curfew hour but invariably about all the fun you had in your home. The Memories come alive sometimes with the smallest of triggers like a smell, a taste, a sensation or just a feeling of déjà vu. Instead of buying your mom a gift or taking her out for dinner here is a fun way to bring alive the memories again this mother’s day. You can create a special day for her around the favorite corners of your house recreating the memories of your childhood which will make the day extra special for both your mother and you.
Library or Reading Nook
If your mom was a book enthusiast then she definitely would have had a favorite reading space in the house. Create a flip book with quotes and images from her favorite books and decorate the space with them. You can also set up a cosy tea setting and enjoy an afternoon tea together.
If you mom had a green thumb then her happiest place would have been the garden. She would have definitely passed on a few skills to you as well. Set up a new pair of garden tools and accessories and set them up with your mom. This would be a day well-spent for her and a fabulous way to catch up on memories.
Window seats are favorite places around the house for everyone. They offer the perfect light and relaxed setting. Bring out the old scrap books and photo albums and you can spend the whole day reliving all the stories.
The kitchen is a place that has a lot of stories of tasty food, food experiments, stealing from cookie jars and making mega messes in your first cooking trials. Bring alive some of the favourite family recipes with your mother and spend the day cooking with your mom.
