Here’s a quick round-up of some of the top fun and creative ways to enjoy your Mother’s Day celebrations.
1. Take Mom Out for Brunch
A beautiful outdoor setting, incredible food, and, perhaps, an adult beverage or two is the perfect way to start Mom’s day off right. Fiorelli Winery is hosting Brunch in the Vines on both Saturday, May 7th, and Sunday, May 8th. Brunch will be served from 11 am to 1 pm in their private pavilion with vineyard views.
Mixon Fruit Farms is also hosting a Mother’s Day Brunch at their pavilion overlooking the koi pond and the orange groves. The event is scheduled for Sunday, May 8th from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm. There will also be live entertainment, 30-minute Tram Rides through the Bamboo Garden at 12:30 pm and 2 pm, Citrus Train Rides, and an amazing play place for the kids to enjoy.
At Mattison’s Riverwalk Grille in downtown Bradenton, you’ll have the option of enjoying a Mother’s Day A La Carte Brunch from 11 am to 2 pm or an A la Carte Dinner Menu from 11 am to 8 pm. Mom will also have a chance to win some fabulous prizes, like facial and luxurious spa products from Sirius Day Spa, Salon, and Med Spa, and a one night, two day stay at Anna Maria Island Resorts on beautiful Anna Maria Island. Reservations are strongly suggested and can be made by giving them a call at 941-896-9660.
2. Enjoy Some Whiskey in a Teacup
On Saturday, May 7th, consider taking Mom to the Pineapple Kitchen Theater for a unique “Whiskey in a Teacup” Luncheon. This Southern-Inspired lunch will feature wine, whiskey, and chocolate pairings, an appetizer, main course, and dessert. Non-Alcoholic beverages will also be available.
Make sure to plan ahead, because there will be a hat contest with prizes for the best Tea Party Hat. Special commemorative Mother’s Day wine glasses will also be available for purchase.
3. Pamper Her at the Spa
Nothing says “I appreciate you” like a day of pampering, and if you choose the right spa, you can also get more bang for your buck. Sirius Day Spa, Salon, and MedSpa is offering a $10 bonus card when you buy a $100 gift card and a $25 bonus card when you buy a $200 gift card.
A Blissful Garden Massage & Wellness Center is also offering a bonus. All Mother’s Day gift certificates will come with a free 5 ml essential oil blend designed to celebrate Mother’s day.
4. Surprise Her with a Succulent
Surprise Mom with a one-of-a-kind gift of a succulent or an original piece of art. The monthly ArtbyCMac weekend carport sale is the perfect place to find a beautiful arrangement that Mom is sure to love.
Head over to 7506 17th Ave. W. in Bradenton on May 6th and 7th between 8 am and 3 pm to check out all the cool things for sale. This is a great way to #SupportLocal while also surprising Mom with a gift she’ll love. During this month’s sale, you can also save 20% on all artwork – both prints and originals.
5. Give a Gift that Keeps on Giving
Most Moms love spending time with their families, making an art-themed outing the perfect gift!
Painting with a Twist has lots of great Mother’s Day options for you and your family. You can join one of their public events, plan a private party, or purchase an at-home Mother’s Day painting kit. When calling to make your reservation, mention Discover Bradenton to receive $5 off any public event, or book a private party for 10 or more and Mom paints for free!
Gypsea Soul in downtown Bradenton is also offering a “Mother’s Day Making Memories” class on Saturday, May 7th at 4:30 pm. This is an opportunity to spoil Mom with an afternoon of creativity and fun as you create a beautiful frame for your own 5 x 7 photo.
The project is beginner-friendly and appropriate for adults and kids 10 and older (with an adult chaperone), so bring the whole family! The cost of the class includes all the materials you need and you can also make it a party by bringing your own beverages and snacks!
