With Mother’s Day just moments away, it’s time you seriously start brainstorming how you’re going to be spoiling that motherly pillar in your life. I actually had the pleasure of teaming up with JaM Cellars recently to create a “Treat Yo’ Self” day for the mom’s in my life using their Butter Chardonnay. And being a mom myself, I unabashedly joined in on all the festivities. So, if you’re a bit stuck on how to celebrate the upcoming holiday, then follow along with the steps below to recreate my (relatively) easy Mother’s Day celebration.
STEP 1: The Wine
No Mother’s Day celebration is complete without a good glass of wine. The Butter Chardonnay by JaM Cellars is a fabulous drink to sip on during a day of splurges and spoils. It’s sweet flavor and light body gives it the versatility to be paired with everything from a fancy brunch to a pizza party.
STEP 2: The Men
The husbands and men in your life are crucial to pulling off an authentic “Treat Yo’ Self” day. Although not visible in the live streamed video or the photos, my own handsome husband can be heard in the background, wrangling rambunctious babies and refilling wine glasses. I didn’t change a single diaper… it was like a Hawaiian vacation of sorts.
STEP 3: The Food
To truly throw an awesome “Treat Yo’ Self” day, you need to have the guilty pleasures readily accessible. I supplied our shindig with an abundant amount of chocolate, pizza, and donuts. Now you might be questioning the level of sophistication in my food choices for this party. And as a mom, I’m going to get real with you… Hey Kids and Dads, moms don’t really want a brunch out at a fancy restaurant and ridiculously expensive food for Mother’s Day. No. We want to have someone else taking care of the munchkins while we relax in front of the TV with our girls, with some good wine in one hand and a donut in the other. Period. This is a universal truth.
STEP 4: The Stations
These might seem like a bit of work, but with just a minimal amount of effort you can pull off the stations with ease. Once you have the three steps above covered, stage your party so that there are “Treat Yo’ Self” stations set up throughout the entertaining area. Create a food station with some cake stands, a nail station, a tea spot, put a romantic comedy on in the sitting area, and of course, a Butter Chardonnay wine station is a must.
STEP 5: The Gifts
Last, but certainly not least, create a gift basket for all the moms in attendance. I whipped up ‘guilty pleasure’ baskets for our moms and they were a huge hit! Here’s what our baskets included: Butter Chardonnay (of course!), chocolate, honey facial masks, caramels, nougat bars, luxury soup, candles, and truffles. Tie a ribbon around the neck of the wine bottle and you’ve got a killer Mother’s Day gift, my friend.
I have given you all the necessary (and quite easy-to-follow) steps, so now see this party in action. With my own mom and some other lovely mommy-friends in attendance, we enjoyed Butter Chardonnay, watched Notting Hill, and pampered to our hearts content…
And the best part about this whole party? It was calorie-free! Okay well that’s a lie, but I’m still going to tell it to myself. It’s my party and I’ll lie if I want to!
