This will ensure other mothers are able to attend, as they will likely have something special they will be doing on Mother’s Day.
You can make your own invitations. Mother’s Day invitations are simple. All you need are pictures of flowers and butterflies and you are good to go. Make sure to include on the invitation that this is a surprise.

Mother’s Day Party Ideas – Games and Activities
Play “How well do you know your Mother/Child?” – Team up mothers with their children. Write down questions that the children have to answer about the mother and the mother has to answer about her children. Examples of questions: “What time does your mother usually go to bed?” “What is your child’s favorite book?” “What is your mother’s favorite color?” etc. They will be amazed at how much they don’t know about each other and it is a great way for them to get to know each other on a different level.
Have a “Photo-Matching Competition” – Have each family bring a baby photo of their mom, as well as a baby photo of each child in the family. Assign a letter to each of the mom’s baby photos and assign a number to each of the children’s baby photos. Place the baby photos of all the moms onto a poster board. On a separate poster board, place all the baby photos of the kids. Be sure you know which number goes with which letter. Give your guests a piece of paper and have them write down the letters that appear on the poster board that has the photos of the moms. Then have them write down one or more numbers next to that letter of who they think belongs to that mom. The person with the most right guesses wins.
Play outdoor games where everyone can be involved.
These Mother’s Day party ideas are fun and simple and will ensure your mom has a great time at the Mother’s Day party.
