I am a firm believer in what my kindergarten teacher instilled in me years, and YEARS ago: “Your mother loves a homemade gift made with love.”
Mother’s Day is a time to say thank you, to say I honor and love you for all the ways you have loved and sacrificed for me. This year, I decided that a little something sweet would be a nice way to finish brunch tomorrow. However, my mother is gluten intolerant and not huge on sugar. So, I decided to go fresh and simple. How do chocolate stuffed raspberries with a little Grand Marnier for drizzling sound? I think these would be best with a chilled glass of champagne and some leisurely conversation in a garden…..
As with all gifts, presentation is a big part of the gift. I decided to use this copper heart mold that I found at the thrift store yesterday. And who could resist a tiny little glass bottle with a cork stopper for a splash of Grand Marnier?
All set and ready to stuff! I love the simplicity of this idea!
Gifted with a sweet linen tea towel, I know that my mama will be delighted!
Maybe this little gift will get your juices revved for figuring out how to make tomorrow special with the little things. Oh, and give a hug to your mom for me 😉 She deserves it!
