NOT YOUR EVERYDAY, MOTHER’S DAY.
Needless to say, this Mother’s Day will be unlike any other Mother’s Day in history. In some cases, Mom’s are stepping up, even more than ever, to bring peace and harmony into our homes. As well as work, teach, feed, love and provide a general sense of calm. If you’re lucky enough to be with Mom right now, you know exactly what needs to be done. If you’re like the rest of us, and Mom has been relegated to a computer screen, we’ve got some ideas on how to celebrate this truly one-of-a-kind person. Even if we can’t be with her… in person.
THE MOM’S OF SABAN GLASS
But first, we thought we’d talk a little bit about the Mom’s that mean so much to Saban Glass. Of course, we’re talking about Cheryl Saban and her Mom, Betty. Cheryl is the proud mother of 4 kids (7 grandchildren). Her Mom, Betty, who is no longer with us, lives on in every single piece of hand blown glass Cheryl creates. Betty was truly one-of-kind, and she even has her own styles of glassware named after her: The Betty Vase and The Betty Table Lamp.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY BETTY!
Betty was a bit of a collector, Cheryl recalls. “Some might say she went over the top.” Her main collection was, of all things, thimbles. Wherever she went, she’d find a souvenir shop and purchase a thimble, or two, or three. In fact, she even joined a thimble club. Betty was truly unique. Not to mention, a true creative inspiration for her daughter, our #hotshopmama, Cheryl Saban.
MOTHER’S DAY FROM A SOCIAL DISTANCE
We’d all love to wrap our arms around Mom right about now. In the meantime, here’s some creative ideas how you can spread the love, but from a distance.
Unique gifts by independent artists.
Send Mom a framed photo (from phone to frame). Or a personalized note or a work of art from their team of independent artists – over half of which are Moms and your purchase goes to help support their family.
Zoom Surprise Party!
Gather friends, family and loved ones for a surprise Zoom call. When Mom logs on expecting just you, she will be more than pleasantly surprised to see that 20 or more people have come together to celebrate the special day with her.
