Local ideas for an eventful and memorable Mother’s Day.
Moms—where would we be without them? Lifeless, for starters. In case you’re still searching for a way to celebrate yours this weekend, we’ve scoured social media to bring you a long list of options.
It just isn’t Mother’s Day without brunch. Make reservations, because these spots fill up quickly. Opt for a plate of Apple Butter French Toast at Flour and Feed in the Wharf District. Eat delicious food for a good cause with pick-up from Madeleine Marie’s; a portion of proceeds will benefit the West Virginia Botanic Garden. Start with Ramen Fries at Sargasso, enjoy a Mother’s Day Buffet at The Winchester, or give her wings and a Red Bull mimosa paired with Deviled Crab Benedict at Von Blaze downtown.
If you’re looking for the perfect gift, consider these: handmade pottery pieces up for grabs at Zen Clay’s annual Mother’s Day sale; adorable hand-felted birds, Kantha jewelry, or Tula hats from River Fair Trade; or a variety of goods made for the mountain mama in your life from Hoot and Howl.
For quality time well spent, consider these destinations for a memorable Mother’s Day: Visit The Plant Cult on Grafton Road for a colorful hanging basket or two; capture the moment at The Forever Rose Room in the Morgantown Mall with a Mother’s Day–themed selfie session; or stop and smell the roses during West Virginia Botanical Garden Day all day Sunday, May 7.
