Mother's Day Guide
Posted on May 12 2017
Still trying to finalize your Mother’s Day plans? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with our very own Mother’s Day Guide. Featuring do-it yourself activities that incorporate our line of wellness teas, this guide will help ensure you treat your mom to the ultimate day of relaxation.
So for those that are a little last minute this year or are just not sure how to honor the greatest women in their life, we’re here to point you in the right direction!
Start the day off on the right note by bringing mom breakfast to savour from the comfort of her own bed. We recommend a delicious yogurt parfait layered with fresh berries and toasted granola, or on-trend chia seed pudding served in a mason jar (see http://bit.ly/2pw4P5B for our pomegranate chia pudding recipe). Pair it with a steeping hot cup of our energizing Grey’s Gift or whip up a creamy tea latte with our Chai In The Sky. Don’t forget the flowers!
Instead of going out for a fancy brunch, treat your mom instead to an afternoon tea at home! Get out her old china, brew one or more of her favourite wellness tea (we recommend 100 Mysteries for its naturally sweet taste) and serve up classic foods like scones, finger sandwiches, and macaroons on tiered (see http://bit.ly/2pCt8OL for inspiration). This is the perfect time to shower her with any cards or presents you bought her, though we think the tea party will steal the show!
No need to splurge on a gift card to the spa when you can give your mom the ultimate spa day from home. Dim the lights and place our natural soy candles throughout the bathroom to create the perfect ambiance. Pick up some face masks or DIY your own (see http://bit.ly/2pDEse5) to meet mom’s skin needs. Run her a bath with epsom salts and essential oils for her to relax in while she drinks a nice calming cup of our Nirvana or Chamomantra tea. Customize the entire experience in order to ensure that your mom is the most relaxed on her special day. Trust us, she will thank you once Monday morning comes around.
For pre-dinner drinks, create and serve your own tea-cocktail for mom to sip while you cook her favourite meal (see http://bit.ly/2q72Ngf for our latest recipe). Or order from her favourite take out restaurant to satisfy her craving and take some of the pressure off yourself. But don’t forget dessert!
Curl up on the couch with a cup of Steeping Beauty and put on mom’s favourite flick. This is a nice way to wind down and enjoy some quality time together, preparing mom for her much needed beauty sleep after a long day of being treated like royalty.
Whatever your plans are for the big day, we hope you take it as an opportunity to celebrate and appreciate all the amazing mothers in your life, one cup of tea at a time!
