How to Celebrate Mother's Day in NYC
Mother’s Day is coming up soon on May 12. Mother’s Day is one of the holidays celebrated worldwide that originated in the US. It was created by a woman named Anna Jarvis in 1908. She started it as a way of remembering her mother who had passed away. But she campaigned to make the second Sunday in May a national holiday and it was recognized as such just 6 years later. In the tradition, people give gifts or offer remembrance for their mothers and grandmothers.
For adult children in New York City who want to give their mother a special treat, Mother’s Day offers them a chance to make her feel like a queen. Even a woman who is uncomfortable receiving things and attention from her children can accept and enjoy the ‘royal treatment’ on her special day. Time to hire a limo to pick her up at home and take her to brunch at her favorite restaurant or at one of the many others offering Mother’s Day specials. Let the chauffeur hand her out at the entry where she can join her family for a memorable meal.
After eating, let the car and driver take the stress while she spends the day on the town with her loved ones doing whatever she enjoys most. If she art is her thing, a day of museum hopping with a driver on call means seeing much more art with so much less fatigue. If shopping is her choice, having a limo to ferry her from door to door takes all the tired out of a day in shops and stores. Gardens may be her passion and New York offers plenty of places to enjoy nature, whether strolling in Central Park or the Botanical Gardens in the Bronx.
Make sure to leave time for a sweet dessert at one of New York’s many amazing pastry shops like Payard Patisserie or Cafe Lalo, or perhaps a chocolate confection from Max Brenner.
If you didn’t start the day with brunch (or even if you did) perhaps you head out for a show and late dinner on the town. Even if you try to cram it all in to one day, having time to rest, to talk, to reflect, and refresh between stops in the back seat of a limo or hired car means she’ll have the energy enough to do it all and enjoy herself for a magnificent and unforgettable Mother’s Day.
