If you’re celebrating mom from afar this year, make it extra special with these virtual Mother’s Day party decorations.
Mother’s Day is around the corner, but this year it will be like no other. Family trips and brunch buffets are officially on the back-burner, per pandemic rules, forcing many to rethink and re-inspire Mother’s Day traditions that have been years in the making. Fortunately, technology has ensured a solution or two for those of us who will be far away from our moms this Sunday. Video conference calling poses a pandemic-friendly alternative to celebrating in person. Below, we’ve got three mom-centric decoration ideas that are sure to shine on screen.
DIY photo banner
Since video conferencing is such a visual platform, displaying your favorite pictures of mom is a simple and resourceful way to decorate your space and tell a story while you’re at it. To create a personalized photo banner of your own, simply mount your photos on card stock, attach your twine to the wall, and then use the mini clothespins to hang your photos.
What you’ll need: printed photos, card stock for mounting, scissors, twine, mini clothespins.
I <3 MOM mugs
The internet is brimming with renditions of the Sharpie mug DIY online because they’re highly customizable and fairly simple to recreate. For a DIY that’s perfect for your virtual Mother’s Day party, wash your mug thoroughly and sketch an “I <3 mom” design directly on the mug in pencil. Then, go over your design with Sharpie and bake your creation at 350 degrees for 20 minutes to set the design. For a little added intrigue, have your family members write what they love about mom directly onto their mug. Once everyone is reunited, she can have the mugs as keepsakes.
