Our Top Tips for a Memorable Mother’s Day at HomeApril 28, 2021
Whether you’re celebrating in-person or virtually, make this Mother’s Day one to remember with fun ideas for an at-home celebration mom will love.
Mother’s Day might look a little different this year, but that’s not to say you can’t have a special celebration at home. Even if those typical celebration ideas — be it brunch, a spa day, or even an in-person visit — are off-limits, there are still tons of creative ways you can show your appreciation and spend quality time with the most important lady in your life.
From virtual activities to menu ideas and more, here are some ideas for a memorable Mother’s Day at home.
Whip Up a Restaurant-Worthy Meal
If you can’t take mom out for a meal at her favourite restaurant, recreate the experience at home instead! HelloFresh has two Mother’s Day meals on the menu this year: Steak and Bacon-Wrapped Green Beans with Creamy Garlic Mash, and Herby Chicken Pasta Fredda with Bocconcini and Lemon Dressing.
Both of these extra-special recipes come with everything you need delivered to your door — including the exact amount of ingredients and foolproof instructions — so you can have a swoon-worthy dinner on the table in as little as 20 minutes.
Top your meal off with our no-bake Cheesecake Mousse Parfait, and voilà — you’ve got an easy and delicious multi-course meal that’s guaranteed to wow mom.
If you’re celebrating from a distance, you can always order the same meal (or gift mom a Mother’s Day feast) and cook it over Zoom together. Order your Mother’s Day meal now!
Get Crafty with DIY Decorations
Bust out the bunting, create a tropical floral wreath, or make DIY paper flowers with coloured cupcake liners — there are endless ways to set the scene and dress up your space.
If you’re not able to decorate in person, consider surprising mom by adding some decorations to her front porch, garden, or backyard.
Watch a Mother-Daughter Movie Together
Whether you’re at home sitting next to your mom or she’s hundreds of kilometres away, a movie marathon is a great way to spend quality time together and celebrate the unique mother-daughter bond.
Go the extra mile and send her a package in advance with her favourite movie night snacks, cozy socks or PJs, and some tea or hot chocolate.
Plan a Virtual Happy Hour
Get the whole family together on a Zoom call and toast mom with a festive cocktail (or mocktail). You can send out the recipes in advance or ask everyone to buy the ingredients and make them together at the same time.

Take a Walk Down Memory Lane
If you’re after a sentimental gift idea you can make at home, round up your favourite family photos and create a custom photo album for mom. You can always edit a video or slideshow instead, and relive the moments together on Mother’s Day (either in person on a video call).
Whatever you’re planning for mom’s big day, let us take care of the Mother’s Day menu. With the meal planning, prep, and delivery taken care of, you can spend less time stressing about what to make, and more time celebrating over a delicious, home-cooked meal.
