When I think of what I really want on Mother’s Day, my list would most likely have “no laundry”, “all the cooking done”, and “no dishes” on it. I’m pretty sure that all moms would appreciate any of these things as a Mother’s Day gift, but I’ve got you covered when it comes to the no dishes part of things!
What mom wouldn’t love a night off of doing dishes? I know I would!
I’ve always loved this idea of giving a mom the night off from dishes, and this year I decided to go ahead and make up a fun printable to go with it. It’s the perfect gift for any mom in your life–a brand new mom, friends, ladies you visit, neighbors, teachers, sisters, and your mom and mother-in-law! It’s wonderful for Mother’s Day, but you can give it anytime as a pick-me-up or thinking of you gift.
Give the gift of less dishes…it’s the best gift ever!
It’s simple to put together…

I bought all of my paper goods except the paper straws at Walmart. They were 99 cents each, so only $4 for all of it! I already had the paper straws (because I’m just a little obsessed with them, and probably have enough to start my own paper straw store) and the ribbon came from Michaels. I went for plain tableware, then added the fun accents with the straws and ribbon. You can certainly do it the other way around as well!
You can also find larger packs of tableware, and split them apart–it just depends on how many in the families, and how many you want to give.
Stack them all together (you might want to tie a piece of baker’s twine around the tableware and the straws so they stay put), then tie the ribbon along with the printable around the whole thing to secure it.
So cute. So easy. So perfect!
