4 Ways to Celebrate Mother’s Day

Breakfast in bed, a special flower arrangement, and a spa day are all great gifts for a mother. Why not go the extra mile for your Mom and celebrate her special holiday out and about in the Bay Area? Here are a few ideas for celebrating Mom locally, with or without her crew.

Make Flower Crowns for Moms

Create a beautiful floral crown to wear with mom to celebrate Mother’s Day. The folks at UC’s Botanical Garden will lead a group of moms and tikes in how to use a variety of greenery and flowers to put together crowns. And sip some tea made from flowers while you craft away.

WHEN: Saturday, May 13, 10am-11am
WHERE: UC Botanical Garden, 200 Centennial Drive Berkeley

Dine in comfort, with options for the whole family. Treat Mom to brunch at Public Market where there’s something to satisfy even the pickiest eater. From ramen to tacos to sushi and sandwiches, the Food Hall at Public Market has you covered. Top it all off with a sweet treat from Oui Oui Macaron or Mr Dewie’s Cashew Creamery.

WHEN: Sunday, May 14th is Mother’s Day!
WHERE: Our Food Hall, of course! 5959 Shellmound St. in Emeryville

Get Fit

It’s Mom’s turn to burn. Give your Mom a gift card for a free class or maybe even accompany her to a workout at Orangetheory Fitness Emeryville. You’ll find OTF in the passageway outside the north entrance to our Food Hall. Go the extra mile with Mom and Celebrate Mother’s Day with a Mother/Daughter or Son workout.
