hello, you can say it this way: "Maligayang kaarawan Inay" let's break it down into pieces: "maligaya" (happy) the 'ng' after the adjective 'maligaya' is actually a particle (na), which I don't think has an english equivalent. thus, the right word is "maligaya na" contracted to "maligayang". "kaarawan" (birthday) "Inay" (mom) - the formal term for mother though is "Ina" but usually, "Inay" is likely used. additional 'birthday terms / phrase': "ano'ng kahilingan mo?" (what is your wish.) "ilang taon ka na?" (how old are you?) "anong handa mo?" [what do you have (food) for your birthday?] "may regalo ako sa iyo." (I have a present for you.) :)
