When it comes to Mother’s Day at home, country music duo Thompson Square and husband-and-wife team Keifer and Shawna Thompson “make it look so good” (yes, that’s a riff on their newest single). This year, the couple opted to stay indoors and in their own home for Mother’s Day, as Keifer, with the help of his little assistant, son Cooper, prepared a spa-themed gift basket and picnic basket just for Shawna.

Out of all the items in your gift basket, which one is your favorite?
We know how hard it can be to carve out time for yourself during the day, let alone a few minutes in the tub. How often do you let yourself indulge in a proper bath soak?
I love a good soak, but with our schedule, I don’t often get a chance to do it, but I try to squeeze in time in the tub at least once a month.
Paint the picture for us. You’re in the tub…what’s on your relaxation playlist?

Where do you go to picnic around your area? (The view outside your window is gorgeous, by the way…)
Thank you! Centennial Park in Nashville is such a beautiful park. My ideal afternoon would be us three with a few friends and a picnic basket filled with a bottle of Caymus Cabernet, assorted cheeses and red grapes, some good ‘ole Nashville hot chicken, and of course, a PB&J sandwich and maybe some goldfish crackers for little Cooper.
Flowers on Mother’s Day: a must-have or not so much?
Flowers are definitely a must-have!
What do you love most about being a Mom?
I love seeing my husband interact with my son, Cooper; it gets me every time. Keifer and Cooper have a nightly bath ritual, and it’s nice just to be a witness to the love that exists between the two of them. It makes me realize how blessed I am to have such an amazing little family.
Also, being a Mom has taught me just to go with the flow a bit more. Things aren’t always gonna be perfect and reading all the self-help baby books in the world can’t prepare you for your own little one. I like that being a Mom has taught me to accept things as they are instead of forcing things into being a certain way.
