Thank you to Kleenex for sponsoring this post and keeping my home stylish and practical!
Any day is a good day to celebrate and host some time to have fun with the ones you love. I hadn’t been back home to Puerto Rico in exactly a year, so I decided to surprise everyone by visiting for Mother’s Day weekend. My mom and I share a very special ritual of welcoming each other with snacks and a bottle of Champagne or wine, and this time around was no exception. We also love to gather around the TV with my sister to watch fun shows and movies. Keep reading for some ideas on how to host an easy, fun and stylish night in with your own mom.
It’s already an unspoken rule between my mom and I that the one hosting will need to stock on bottles of Champagne and wine, as well as on easy snacks we can nibble on while catching up or enjoying a movie together. After so much time apart, we always have a million things to talk about, joke about and toast to. We usually gather in the living room or even wearing comfy PJs in bed (if it was a late flight) to enjoy our ritual of almost 8 years now. (Fun Fact: I moved to NYC in August of 2006 after my college graduation that summer.)
No matter if you live far away or near your mom, I think it is always a good idea to schedule some time together every year, month or week. It takes a lot of pressure off if you focus on the company and importance of that moment and make it as fun, relaxing and laid-back as possible. (Whatever that means to you!)
For us it means a bottle or two of Champagne and/or wine; snacks like cheese, chocolate, dips and chips; music; and our very similar sense of humor to enjoy. This time around we also included a very stylish box of Kleenex tissue. They have so many fun designs, and we picked the perfect one to decorate my mom’s space to have handy for any drink spillages, sticky fingers and even emotional tears. I definitely recommend visiting their Kleenex Style Studio to find the perfect design for the two of you to decorate and make your quality time together that more practical and stylish.
No matter if the two of you are fashionistas, art fanatics, or home decor aficionados you’ll find a perfect style that speaks to your relationship and that special moment together. I mean, Kleenex has been in the MoMa twice! Also, if by any chance this time together turns into a sleepover, you also have the perfect way to remove your makeup, so you both look eternally beautiful. Have you visited Kleenex Style Studio yet? Do you have any special rituals with your mom?
