Is it weird that Mother's Day is one of my favorite holidays? It could be because I have the best mom ever. For real. I'm sure you think your mom is the best, but you're mistaken. My mother chose to have me at the age of 41…16 years after my closest sibling. She gave up her time, her energy, even her figure for me. When she got the feeling that her family wasn't complete, she could have easily ignored it. But she didn't. She, like all mothers, gave up everything for her child. I can never repay her, but I can throw a rocking party in honor of all mothers!

Since I wanted the focus to be on our mothers, the decor was super simple and made primarily with…tissue paper! It's inexpensive and comes in so many colors.

I couldn't find the color of green I wanted for a tablecloth, so tissue paper it was.

I also used it in pinks and yellow for a quick handmade tassel garland.  

It makes gorgeous multicolored flowers like the one I made to top my mini powdered donut "cake."

And my chalkboard art? That's American Greetings chalkboard wrapping paper! 

I wanted to keep this party simple with a focus on all women — mothers, grandmothers, daughters, aunts, and friends. American Greetings has cards for all demographics to celebrate, no matter the title.

I purchased a selection of cards from the One-Stop Shop at Walmart. Each guest could choose a card to send to a special woman in their life that couldn't be at our Mother's Day celebration.  

There were humorous cards, cards from pets, even an "amazing wife" card for my lesbian friend. You name it, I had it!

I wanted guests to have a little something to take home with them too, so we took pictures in front of a floral backdrop. (Made from a drop cloth and house paint samples!)

Everyone had a floral crown (made from tissue paper flowers) to match the backdrop.

We printed the photos and they could take them home in a One-Stop Shop frame, ready to be decorated and given to a loved one.  

Look for the American Greetings One-Stop Shop at your local Walmart for all your Mother's Day gifts, cards, and party supplies!
