Mother’s Day: Take Mom to Morocco, India and France!

Saffron Marigold - Updated: April 10, 2019

A mother’s life is immensely fulfilling, but to be honest, can sometimes feel a bit ordinary (i.e. wash, rinse, repeat; wash, rinse, repeat). If there is a woman in your life who dreams of the exotic, why not bring her the spoils of adventure around the globe? I’m thinking that a bit of Morocco, India and France will bring a sparkle to her eyes…

Mom in Morocco

Bring her the brightness of the sea, the sparkle of a million mosaic tiles and the nurture of ancient ways. Start with our bold and timeless Sultan’s Palace print, this time in a throw pillow. Pillows and cushions are wonderful ways to add color, texture and flair to a room without breaking the bank. A few of these strewn on sofas, the bed, or on the floor would make the perfect inspiration for Mom’s new global look. Add in a spring-infused Moroccan made scarf and soothing Argan oil (great for both hair and skin!), and mom will feel just a step away from her dreamy destination.

Mom in India

Now, it’s off to that world within the world, the vast and varied, bright and bustling land of India. Our sari-inspired India Rose euro sham is a perfect souvenir… coral pink and detailed in purple and cream, this pillow is feminine and glamorous and distinctively global.  We’ll add lovely dangly earrings, made with love in India, from Noonday Collection. If she loves to adorn her walls as well, an intricate watercolor from Cate Parr and a vintage map will transport her boudoir from ordinary to exotic in the time it takes to hang them on the wall.

Mom in France

In our last stop on the world tour, we’ll take mom to Paris. Top her bed with Morning Dew, our French fusion pillow in mellow yellow with turquoise and tangerine diadems. She’ll ask for a croissant and feel she’s gone to the Parisian section of heaven! Perhaps, though, the hint of Frivole wafting through the air and the glimmer of filigree earrings through her hair will inspire Dad to take her out to the finest five star French place in town… either way, Mom will certainly say, “Merci”!

Surveys show that 9 out of 10 moms would rather have something unique and hand made rather than another box of candy or a generic card. (Just kidding, no scientific surveys here. :)) But really, this year, show mom how much you appreciate everything she does at home by bringing the world to her fingertips. Give her a global makeover!

Just in time for Mother’s Day, we have put together some inspiring ways to tell Mom “thanks for everything” and for expressing love and gratitude to her. We’ll focus on high quality, hand made items, do-it-yourself projects and special recipes. These reflect our commitment to the personal touch–in our handcrafted linens, our genuine dedication to customer service and our belief that you find joy in what comes from heart and hand.
