Sorry dad, your man cave will have to take a break until June because this Mother’s Day, it’s all about the mom cave. With Saturday’s premiere of HGTV’s new show Mom Caves shedding some light on mama’s need for some personal space, this Mother’s Day is the perfect time to give mom the best gift she could ever (but would never) ask for—a little alone time! Here are great tips for creating a perfect, pretty space for some relaxation, meditation and a little indulgence this Mother’s Day. Move over, man cave!
Time to Decorate
Throw Pillows: It may be called a mom cave, but we all know she prefers a softer space. Use lots of pillows to soften up her cave so that she feels secure and comfortable. Stock up on decorative throw pillows from World Market ($12.99-$34.99 on worldmarket.com) to provide a bright burst of color and texture!
Vase Garland: Everybody gives mom flowers on Mother’s Day, so show the pretty blooms off in the mom cave with this Urban Outfitters Bottle Vase Garland ($24 at urbanoutfitters.com). Mom will be pleasantly surprised to see that flowers can do so much more than sit in a vase on the table.
Floral Decals: Unfortunately, real flowers just don’t last forever, but Wallflower Wall Decor does ($40 at urbanoutfitters.com)! Scatter these flowers around the walls or place them together in a decorative cluster according to your wall space. Mom will feel like she stepped outside into her garden without even leaving the house!
Comfy Seating: Furnishing the mom cave may be a bit of a splurge, but all the pillows in the world won’t beat a comfortable couch for mom to relax on after a long day. These colorful futons ($189.99 at Target.com) are perfect if mom wants to turn it into a bed for a much-needed nap or as a couch for when she and her girlfriends just want to have a good old-fashioned slumber party!
