Mother’s Day is fast approaching (THIS SUNDAY) and here at Living Fires, we want to salute the mothers of the world this month.
Since we like to celebrate every holiday by redecorating our mantelpiece, this month our thoughts are with everyone who mothers and making the mantel a celebration about them. Mother’s Day is such a fun day to decorate for because anything you do is just a bonus! You can pull out all the stops or simply add a few hearts here and there, however understated or over the top you go we know it will be appreciated. It’s a simple way to show Mum how much you adore them… who doesn’t love that?
While we’re sure you’ve already planned a special day to leave her grinning, if you want to take your display of appreciation to the next level, setting the scene with some fun decor is a must. From floral touches to wall decor she’ll be able to enjoy even if the closest you get this year is a video call, we’ve got everything you need to make the day extra special.
There are as many kinds of mothers in the world as there are people. When you’re planning for a Mother’s Day mantel, it’s important to look at individual tastes. Chances are you’re focusing on one mother in particular so you want to make sure the decor is to her liking.
If you’re decorating a mantel for your mother, think about things your mum likes. If you are the mother, and you’re decorating the family mantel, well, this is a good month to think about what you like and decorate accordingly. Hey, it’s your month!
Vintage decorations always look attractive, especially in older homes. Arrange display plates, tea cups, books and some of your favorite knick-knacks on the mantel. Arrange flowers in old glass pitchers, vases or bottles, and finish with some old-timey black and white portraits of women in your family.
MUMS AND KIDS
This one is fun for kids of any age. Use Mum’s favorite colors to dress up the mantel. Find photos of all the kids at different ages and even include one of mum and dad too. Finish it off with Mum’s favorite quote on a chalkboard and it’s sure to be a surprise she’ll cherish. Bonus points if you can get the kids to write the chalkboard!
Flowers are the perfect accessories for your mantel decor. Create little bunches of flowers, budding twigs and leaves from what is growing and fresh in your garden. Arrange in matching vases, or re-used milk bottles tied with ribbon, and space evenly along the mantel. A soft pink and blush mantel is ideal for Mother’s Day and you don’t need a whole lot of flowers to have a stunning impact.
