Should I be decorating for Mother's Day?

If you like decorating for different occasions and you really want to surprise mum, then decorating for Mother's Day is a thoughtful idea. However, you don't have to decorate if you don't want to.

It can seem a lot to buy for the day, but if you're having all the mums and grandma's round, it would be a nice touch.
