Make a yummy homemade breakfast!
You don’t need to be a gourmet chef to impress mom with your culinary skills. A simple stack of pancakes or a scrambled egg breakfast with a toasted croissant slathered with her favorite jam can become extra special if you add a small pot of flowers, a colorful cloth napkin and a handmade multi-option We’ve Got This Chore voucher to her breakfast tray. If you want to try something new, check out this scrumptious Spring Quiche recipe, shared on Twitter today by @HGTVGardens.
Plan some simple family time
While spa visits are fabulous – simple family activities can be the ticket too. Here in the Hudson Valley and northern New Jersey we are blessed with so many beautiful natural vistas. Take a stroll by the Hudson River in Nyack or Piermont. Stroll the grounds at Skylands Manor in Ringwood (check out our link – there is a 5k race there on Saturday, May 10th, so parking is limited.)
For history and nature loving moms, consider taking a basket lunch to the Stony Point Battlefield on Mother’s Day, or attending a Lighthouse Talk on May 10th at 7:30 pm (advance reservations are required.) Tour The Hermitage in Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ, one of the many National Historic Landmarks where General George Washington slept and visited!
For arts and entertainment buffs – check out the Hudson Valley Magazine Calendar and upcoming acts at Tarrytown Music Hall – the Spin Doctors, Rick Springfield and Bill Cosby are some of the acts who will be performing there through the year.
Whatever your plans, we encourage you to shop local. Patronize some of the extraordinary restaurants and shops that are a “hop” away.
And we hope you’ll stop by down to earth LIVING sometime soon 😉 We’ve got oodles of beautiful hanging plants, tropicals, Japanese Maples and a wide assortment of flowering trees, shrubs, gardening supplies and accessories, garden sculpture and organic lawn care products. Our 10,000 sq ft showroom is brimming with stylish, comfortable entertaining and outdoor living furnishings by Brown Jordan, Gloster, Kingsley-Bate, Castelle, Agio and unique home decor.
However you spend it, we wish you and your family a very Happy Mother’s Day!
