A Mother's Love - Postcard Friendship Friday #62

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!

A very classy card, and thanks for the info on Mother's Day in France.

The French sure know how to do cakes. Sounds the perfect way to spend Mothers Day.

It's a beautiful card but I really love the message - "Have not written that letter yet but have hopes of writing it some time this week". Me all over!

Aimee said...

Love that cake idea! I could get used to celebrating that way!

I have to agree with Sheila, the note on the postcard perfectly sums up moi! What a wonderful way to pamper Mothers on Mother's day :D
Happy Mother's to you and everyone else at PFF!

Happy Mother's Day to you Beth, and although mine is not a Mother's Day image, it was for my wife who is now a mother! We're on the road until late tonight, but I will make 'make the rounds' and visit everyone on Monday morning.

Thanks for hosting, once again!!!
