Between dealing with the current circumstances and trying to keep the home in order, mothers are working harder than ever so let’s give them some extra love this Mother’s Day. Whether you’re witnessing mom’s endless sacrifices firsthand or following the stay-at-home guidelines to keep her safe, don’t let the quarantine discourage you from going all out on Sunday, May 10th. There are many ways to express your gratitude and appreciation while maintaining social distance – it just might require a little out-of-the-box thinking. We’ve got you covered with three fun and creative ways to celebrate mom’s special day safely.
1.Whip up a delicious gift.
You can’t go wrong with a classic breakfast in bed – simply wake up early, round up the family, and get cooking! At Cascata at MiraLago, a lakefront community of estate homes in Parkland, you’ll find that your beautiful chef-inspired kitchen will make everything go smoothly. Stainless steel appliances, as part of Lennar’s signature Everything’s Included® package, ensure that you’re fully equipped, while spacious countertops mean everyone can join in.With a few fluffy pancakes, scrambled eggs, coffee and a nice bouquet of flowers, mom’s big day will be off to a great start.
If you don’t live with mom, this is also the perfect opportunity for a drive by. Create colorful Mother’s Day signs, blow up some balloons, and drop off your homemade meal in style. You can catch up with mom or grandma while maintaining a comfortable distance and build memories she will cherish forever.
2. Create an at-home scavenger hunt.
Just because we’re staying indoors doesn’t mean we can’t add a little mystery to our Mother’s Day plans. Try setting up a scavenger hunt throughout the home! On Saturday evening, dad and the kids can hide their gifts and draw a map with fun games and activities along the way. After weeks of the same routine, mom will certainly appreciate the element of surprise and will look forward to an exciting day with the family.
For residents of Palomino Lake, a charming townhome community in Davie, there will be plenty of potential hiding spots for mom to discover, especially since all homes feature open-concept floorplans with private patios and covered entries. Families can also take the scavenger hunt outdoors and enjoy a socially distant walk across any of the 28 scenic acres of Davie’s public horse trails.
3. Show your love virtually.
Spending time with the moms in your life doesn’t have to take place in-person. Thanks to apps like Zoom or FaceTime, you can have your own celebration online, complete with food, drinks, and entertainment. Plus, if you live at The Edge on 20th, a new townhome community in Fort Lauderdale, you’ll enjoy unsurpassed connectivity from any part of the home with Lennar’s Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Home Designs. The kids can act out a skit in the patio, recreating favorite films and family memories to make mom or grandma laugh. You can also edit together old home videos, photographs, and clips of family members telling mom how much they love her. No matter how big or small the gesture, it’s truly your heartfelt efforts that count during these difficult times.
With three exciting ideas on hand, you’re ready to create an unforgettable Mother’s Day surprise while keeping everyone safe!
