This is such a good trick! Arrange for your mum to go out and only come back at tea time, when you'll have a meal prepared for both of you. Then get your hands on some plain white plates and some plate decorating pens or paint - even the kinds kids often use to decorate a plate for Grandma. You can create a really cute design - and then be sure to follow the instructions to let the paint or ink set - it is often recommended to pop in the oven for a certain time. Once it is completely dry, you can set about preparing the meal and dish it out on to the newly decorated plate. You could even cleverly cover each section of the plate with a different food - just make sure every bit is covered with food so that it looks like an every day white dinner plate. Wait til your recipient starts eating to reveal the cute surprise! You get to keep the memory and relive it every time you use the plate for a meal! It's such a cute surprise idea and you can get really creative with the design and message you choose to give.

17. Set up a home movies night

Why not create an indoor 'drive thru' set up to show home movies! Watching home movies and videos together is a wonderful way to celebrate her birthday and will be bound to result in hilarity and smiles all round! The drive thru element brings a retro feel, ten points if you also have popcorn, milkshakes and delicious snacks on hand!
