Each year, Mother’s Day offers an opportunity to show the moms in our lives just how much we appreciate everything they do. While taking that special mom out for brunch, lunch, or dinner is always a hit, chances are just about everyone else in town has had the same idea – meaning if you haven’t been able to make reservations somewhere in advance, you might end up having a difficult time finding a good spot to eat. This year, why not try something a little different, and surprise her with the ultimate picnic? Here are a few tips to do just that:
Prepare her favorite food
There’s nothing quite like a home cooked meal that someone has taken the time to prepare to make a person feel special – and you can bet that’ll be a hit on Mother’s Day. You’ll just want to make sure that whatever you make can easily be packed and transported to avoid any unfortunate meal mishaps along the way. Also, if you’re planning on bringing any adult beverages along for your picnic, you’ll want to check on local ordinance involving glass bottles and alcohol beforehand.
Make sure you have everything you need
Speaking of transporting food, it’s a good idea to ask yourself when the last time you had a picnic was. Do you still have a basket? A blanket? Are they in good condition? How will you transport liquids and keep everything cool? Make a mental checklist of what you want to bring and take a quick stroll around the house to make sure you have everything you need to transport it. If you don’t, it’s time to go shopping to make sure you’re prepared for the big day!
Find a great place for a picnic
There’s no need to go far from home when the perfect picnic spot is just outside your door. Many of Decron’s apartments offer BBQ areas right on the community grounds, as well as plenty of other secluded and lovely spots to have a picnic, so you can avoid the holiday traffic and get straight to the best part of the day. Want to get away for a bit, but not too far? In most cases, you’ll also find some wonderful parks just a few blocks away, where you can spread out and enjoy your picnic along with the warm spring weather, in the shade.
However you decide to spend the holiday, we’d like to wish you a very happy Mother’s Day!
