Celebrate the Moms – Best of the Weekend 5/10/19

Welcome to this week’s edition of Best of the Weekend link party!  We are so happy you could join us!

As we head into Mother’s Day weekend, we are all thinking of ways to celebrate the Moms in our lives!  If you are looking for last minute gift ideas or creative ways to celebrate Mother’s Day, I hope our features from last week will give you some inspiration.

If you have something to share, we invite you to link up your inspiring posts which may include crafts, decor, recipes, DIY and more!

It’s time to inspire us…or get inspired…

Each week, when you link up to Best of the Weekend, your link will appear on both our blogs.  Let’s meet your hosts…



If you don’t already follow our blogs, we would love for you to follow us in some way:

Liberty from B4 and Afters | Facebook | Google+ | Pinterest | Instagram

Shelley from Calypso in the Country | Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest | Instagram


Before we begin this week’s party, let’s take a look back at the past week…

Every week, we share the most popular post from the previous week’s party on both of our blogs.  In addition, each hostess picks a few favorites to share.  Be sure to check out each of our blogs to see all the features!

Also, remember to stop by our original Best of the Weekend Pinterest Board  and our newest Best of the Weekend Link Party Features where we pin the features each week!   For now, we will continue to pin the features to both of those boards.

Each week, I also share the features on my Instagram stories so be sure to follow along!

We always appreciate when we see people promoting our link party so Pin, Tweet and share away on social media!  Be sure to tag us so we can send you a thank you and give you a shout out at the next link party.



This week, I joined 23 other bloggers for a Spring Tea Party blog hop where we all shared our spring tea ideas.
