May - Mom-osa Cart for Mother's Day

Celebrate Mother's Day in style with our Mom-osa Cart event! Residents who are mothers will be treated to a delightful surprise as our staff members roll around with a mimosa cart, offering refreshing mimosas to celebrate their special day. It's a wonderful way to honor and pamper the mothers in our community!


The primary goal of the Mom-osa Cart event is to celebrate and honor the mothers in your community, providing them with a special treat on Mother's Day. Additionally, the event aims to foster a sense of connection and camaraderie among residents and staff, creating a joyful and memorable experience for all.

  1. Set up a designated area where the Mom-osa Cart will be stationed, preferably in a central location where residents can easily access it.
  2. Prepare the mimosa cart with an assortment of flavored juices (such as orange, pineapple, or cranberry) and sparkling wine or sparkling water for non-alcoholic options.
  3. Create a schedule for staff members to visit each resident who is a mother, offering them a choice of mimosa flavors and a heartfelt Mother's Day greeting.
  4. As staff members visit each resident, engage in friendly conversation, express appreciation for their role as mothers, and offer assistance as needed.
  5. Ensure that residents who do not wish to partake in alcoholic beverages are still included in the celebration by offering alternative refreshments or treats.
  6. Throughout the event, maintain a festive and welcoming atmosphere, encouraging residents to socialize and enjoy each other's company.

You'll need a team of staff members to help coordinate and execute the Mom-osa Cart event. This team should include staff members to prepare and serve the mimosas, as well as others to assist with logistics, such as transporting the cart and ensuring residents are aware of the event.
