1. Take a trip to a nearby botanic garden and spend the afternoon enjoying the sunshine while walking among the flowers and trees. This is a nice twist on giving Mom flowers on Mother's Day. Plus, the weather this time of year is absolutely lovely.
2. Swing by your favorite bakery to pick up a selection of pastries and then brew a pot of Mom's favorite tea at home. Linger over afternoon tea without the crowds waiting impatiently for your table. Dresses and fancy hats are optional!
3. Picnic in the park with a blanket and a simple lunch of baguette, brie, grapes, and italian soda. This is perfect if you want to include the family dog in the Mother's Day festivities!
