While we know some of you eager beavers already have your gifts, cards and activities lined up to show Mom how much you love her, we at WAG thought you’d appreciate a few more ideas for celebrating the special weekend:
Join Bloomingdale’s White Plains on Friday and Saturday, May 10 and 11, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. for a Fragrance Fair. Spend $125 or more and receive one of two necklaces, suitable to show mom some extra love, which you can then have engraved. There will be light bites and bevies as well.
On Saturday, May 11at 1 p.m. Bloomie’s is also hosting a panel discussion featuring five influencers from the New York suburbs talking about how their lifestyles have evolved over time – from a first-time mother to an empty nester. Topics will focus on fashion, beauty and wellness, with anecdotes on parenting along the way. Plus, guests will enjoy a fashion show of looks that represent each speaker’s personal style, for inspiration on what to wear during the various stages of motherhood.
The fun goes on till 3 p.m. To RSVP, click on to https://momhoodbloomies.eventbrite.com.
WAG favorite Jean-Georges is always set for mom’s special day. Make reservations at any of his restaurants, including The Inn at Pound Ridge by Jean-Georges, at jean-georges.com. And use that website to surprise mom with a 12- or 24-piece box of his handmade chocolates as well. They’re available for pickup only from May 8 through 12 at The Inn at Pound Ridge and Jean-Georges Restaurant in Manhattan.
Because we can never have enough chocolate, we were happy to hear that our friends at LaMaison du Chocolat are celebrating with their Mother’s Day Coffret Maison Assorted 40 Pieces of ganaches, pralinés and almond paste in milk and dark chocolate ($85) and their Mother’s Day Gesture Gift Box with a selection of 14 milk and dark chocolate pralines and ganaches ($30).
