It's Mothers Day in a little over a week! Are you ready?
Mothers Day is always celebrated the 2nd Sunday in May in the US, but in England "Mothering Sunday" was celebrated on the fourth Sunday in Lent - not quite as easy to remember since, like Easter it would change from year to year. You can read about the history of Mothers Day here if you're interested, but nowadays the biggest question top of mind is, what to get mom!
How about a gift basket?
Everybody loves a gift basket, right? This mom loves the beach so a basket filled with something special for the beach would be my top choice. I loved these "Seas the Day" flip flops from my local Dollar (& a quarter) Tree, but they needed a little extra pizzaz. I had some white, star studded suede ribbon, blue Taffy striped and white grosgrain ribbon from Gwen Studios. I also found two, star shaped, silver buttons in my stash and got to work.
