Celebrate Mother’s Day with a Free Printable Cake Topper: Step-by-Step Guide and Decorating Tips


Mother’s Day is a time to show appreciation for the incredible mothers in our lives. What better way to celebrate than with a beautifully decorated cake and a little party for mom at home? In this blog post, we’ll talk about how to make mom’s day special right at home and I’ll guide you through creating a stunning cake topper using a free printable design. Let’s make this Mother’s Day extra special!


Here are some ideas for Mother’s Day:


1. Order from her favorite restaurant.  You’ll give Mom her favorite food and help out your local business.

2. The kids can make mom a simple cake or cupcakes (We use a cake mix. The easiest way to make cake ever!). Decorate them with these lovely cake and cupcake toppers I designed just for you! You can download them at the bottom of the post.

3. Got some Rice Krispy? Make her these cute heart-shaped Rice Krispy treats instead of cupcakes. You can still stick your free cupcake toppers on them.





The party is never complete without a banner. Print out the matching Happy Mother’s Day banner and hang it on your mantel or above the cake.

4. Have the kids make mom a nice handmade gift, like this bowl that she can put her jewels in. Or this suncatcher Mother’s Day card.

3. Pamper her with some lovely gift sets. I’m hinting to my husband to get me this gift set or this care package that includes an adorable tumbler.  If these don’t get there on time. Your local drug store such as Walgreen or CVS might have some cute gift sets. If you’re worried about going to the store ask if they offer deliveries of those items along with essentials.

4. Make a beautiful Mother’s Day gift set yourself. Buy some of her favorite makeup or nail polish. Add in her favorite snacks that she can’t normally eat in front of the kids and a card. She’ll love you for it.

5. If mom loves flowers, you can still get them at your local grocery store as well as home improvement stores, such as Home Depot. My husband got me some peonies from Home Depot and planted them for me in our garden. He’s awfully sweet that husband of mine!

6. The best gift you can give Mom during this time of quarantine is a clean house and maybe 2 hours of quiet time after you eat the homemade Mother’s Day cake.

There you have it. Some very simple ways to give mom her best Mother’s Day yet! Set up the house for a party with banners, cake, and cupcakes. Gift her with her care package and some love this Mother’s Day!

Keep your Last-Minute Kids’ Party simple

When planning a last-minute party, it’s important to keep things simple. Don’t try to plan an elaborate event with too many activities and decorations. Stick to a simple theme, and focus on the essentials, such as food, drinks, and easy setup manageable activities.

Choose a venue

Consider renting a party venue if you don’t have time to decorate your home or yard. Many venues offer packages that include decorations, food, and activities. This can save you time and stress and ensure your child has a great party.

Online invitations

Save time and money by using online invitations. There are many websites and apps that offer free, customizable invitations that you can send out quickly. Plus, you can track RSVPs and send reminders to guests. You can also design your own invitations using free online apps like Canva. Check out my shop for more printable invitations.

Don’t have time for elaborate decorations? No problem. Buy some balloons, streamers, and simple decorations from your local party supply store. These can be set up quickly and will create a festive atmosphere. Print out party banners like these at home or your local print shop, cut them, and decorate your party. These party decorations can also double as photo backdrops!

Order Food

Ordering food from a local restaurant or catering company saves time and energy. Many offer party platters and packages that can be delivered or picked up quickly. Or, consider having a pizza party or a taco bar, which are easy to set up and manage. Lots of grocery stores offer party food and dessert at affordable prices.
If you insist on making something, Sweet and Savory Morsels, have some lovely recipes!


If you don’t have time to plan elaborate games and activities, consider setting up a craft table or a coloring station. You can also put together a simple scavenger hunt or have a dance party with a playlist of your child’s favorite songs.

Kids these days are wild about Bingo games as well.

Have a plan B

If you’re planning an outdoor party, have a plan B in case of bad weather. Consider renting a tent or having an indoor space available as a backup. This will ensure that the party can continue without interruption.

Enlist help

Don’t be afraid to ask for help from friends or family. They can help with setup, cleanup, and managing the party. Plus, it’s always more fun to plan a party with others. If one of your friends bakes for a living, ask her to make a special cake for your kiddo.

Keep it short

When planning a last-minute party, keep it short and sweet. A two-hour party is plenty of time for kids to have fun and enjoy the festivities.

Enjoy the Party

Remember, the most important thing is to have fun and enjoy the party with your child. Don’t stress too much about the details; focus on making memories with your family and friends.
