With mother’s day around the corner, you’re probably already mentally preparing yourself for her arrival. Whether it will be a happy addition to your home or one that you’re dreading, we’ve got a few tricks up our sleeve that we’d love to share with you.

Tip 1: Prepare your room

A fresh coat of paint will do wonders for a dull and drab room. We recommend the lovely Mandarin Tusk by Plascon. This would pair beautifully with white linen and some brightly coloured fresh cut flowers.

Tip 2: Fresh linen

It’s time to freshen up those sheets. You can either choose to give them a good wash or buy a new set altogether. We recommend keeping your colour scheme neutral and investing in a higher thread count than usual. Be sure to wash your new sheets beforehand so that they’re nice and soft.

Tip 3: Buy some flowers

Nothing adds a feminine touch to a room like a beautiful flower arrangement. If you’re looking for something that will last longer than just her visit, try buying an orchid. You can find out how to care for them here.

Tip 4: Amenities

Fill your guest bathroom with anything she could possibly need, from cotton wool to a new tube of toothpaste. This will show that you care about her. We’ve found a comprehensive list of items on this website.

Tip 5: Add some books

Keep some books on the nightstand of your guest bedroom. This will hopefully keep her entertained and give her something to read if she’s battling to fall asleep.
