In France, Mother's Day is celebrated the last Sunday of May with a cake resembling a bouquet of flowers. This lovely traditional cake is followed by a lavish family dinner.
Children in France make cards, crafts or write poems for their mothers. Many families treat their mothers by cooking a breakfast or giving her a treat of a perfect mother’s day brunch in style.
In France whether it’s a pleasant conversation over a glass of wine, organizing a party, or playing indoor and outdoor games with family, mother’s day is made playful and celebratory. Presenting Moms with gift baskets which might contain gourmet chocolates, special wines and cheeses, along with a book by a favorite author, cosmetics and perfumes, is a wonderful tradition.
The French really know how to spoil their Mothers!
Happy Mother's Day and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
