Friday Five: Make Mom’s Day

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 8th and here are five ways to celebrate the day with mom.

1-Take her to brunch.  It will be easy to find one that suits mom’s tastes with all the amazing dining choices in Charleston.

2-Have a family photo made.  It may have been awhile since you had a portrait made with the entire family and what better way to commemorate the day then a group shot.

Happy family portrait

3-Instead of cut flowers, plant her a rose-bush.  Easy care, Knock Out roses, have exceptional disease resistance and hardiness.

4-Hire a cleaning service.  Give mom a break from the household chores with a few hours of professional help.

5-Volunteer together.  Celebrate life’s blessings by helping others.  Serve a meal a meal to the homeless, pet animals at a shelter, or clean up a roadway…the need is great and endless.

Mr. H says: No gift to your mother can ever equal her gift of life to you-Enjoy!

Think Pink

I’ve talked a lot about pink in the last few months since it appears to be the “it” color in interior design.

While thinking pink for the walls, many may also think about pink and its association with breast cancer.  In 2004, the “Think Pink” slogan became a registered trademark of Zeta Tau Alpha, using it as an umbrella for all it’s breast cancer awareness and education programs.

This Saturday please join us for a fundraiser benefiting the The ZTA Foundation.  The ZTA Foundation is dedicated to fighting breast cancer through education, awareness and promoting breast health by partnering with Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, Yoplaits Save Lids to Save Lives®, The National Football League, Self Magazine and Lifetime Television.
