I don’t know about you, but my Mum is too many shades of amazing. I sincerely do not know neither would I even want to imagine what my life would be without her.
Of all the amazing gifts that life has to offer – a mother is really the greatest of them all. You know what they say “Life doesn’t come with a manual, it comes with a Mother.” How true, right? Mothers are right about everything…..Lol.
I always look forward to Mothers Day since we get to treat Mum like the Queen she is…it doesn’t mean that we don’t do so every other day but this particular day, is quite special. I love planning surprises for my loved ones every once in a while and this was a perfect opportunity to do so for my Amazing Mom.
Unfortunately, she had planned to leave early on Sunday Morning so that meant I had to come up with a simple Menu that would require little effort and time. And at the same time keeping it on the down low….that was the hardest part but I pulled it off….Yippee!
The one major lesson I have come to appreciate about planning an event, no matter how small, is to plan ahead. I did most of the shopping the previous day, did the print outs during the week and baked the cake the previous night. As for the menu, I decided to go with simple breakfast snacks that would only require heating up at most but that was no deal breaker….It’s the thought that counts. It doesn’t have to be expensive for it to be special – trust me on this.
MOTHERS DAY SURPRISE BREAKFAST MENU
Coconut Cake with Fresh Whipped Cream Frosting
Coconut and Oatmeal Cookies
The surprise turned out pretty well….Seeing the excitement and smile on her face made it totally worth it.
