Exercise your green thumb

Mother’s day is synonymously associated with florals, so it’s the perfect time to work  on your green thumb. Whether you prefer to garden, refresh your indoor planters, or you’re more of the throw some Trader Joe’s flowers in a vase type, you can’t go wrong!

Get your home guest-ready

If you’re hosting for the first time in a while, take some time to be thoughtful about how your guests experience their stay. For a few of our favorite tips on how to create safe and welcoming guest spaces, check out our recent post here!

Dine alfresco

We’re all for dining alfresco when the weather starts to get warmer. Plus, it’s the perfect excuse to make simple dishes, break out the grilling supplies, or even order takeout from your favorite local restaurant. Add some table linens, pretty serveware, and a vase of flowers to make even the simplest of dishes feel special.
