One person who really inspired me to plan events is my sister, Sarah. Her and her sister-in-law, Amber from The Hot Chocolate plan a Mother’s Day party every year for the special women in their lives. Even though I wasn’t a mother until last year, I always went along with my mom and when I started dating my husband, his mother came along as well. I thought it would be a perfect start to this Mother’s day week to share with you some of the fun Mother’s Day parties they came up with. If you are a local, this one is for you. These parties are perfect for Mother’s Day but also, for birthdays, showers and other small gatherings.
In the beginning, the parties started with just a brunch. Sarah and Amber are both amazing cooks so a brunch alone was worth it. However, they started adding an activity element to the parties, which stepped it up to a whole new level.
Here are a few of their fun ideas.
