Three Cheers for Mom: Celebrating Mother's Day in Columbia SC
Tuesday, April 27, 2021 12:00 AM by McClelland Schilling
Without a doubt –– Moms are real-life superheroes. They inspire us, they support us, and most importantly, they love us unconditionally (even during our “terrible twos”). What better way to celebrate the incredible mother figures in your life than with something special from the heart of SC for Mother’s Day?
After letting her sleep in, of course, get the perfect day started with a delicious brunch. Blue Flour is making it easy on you with their Breakfast in Bed Box with all the fixins from pimento cheese biscuits to a sugar cookie with her name on it. For the plant-based madre, Tasty As Fit is selling Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cakes that are sure to win you the coveted favorite child spot. Pro-Tip: Don’t forget to pick up coffee and mimosa supplies while you’re out.
If your family is looking to get out of the house, look no further than The Main Course and The GRAND. She can pick her favorite bites and sips from their buffet and Bloody Mary Bar. Live music will keep the whole family entertained, but if you need a little more fun, enjoy a game of bowling or head to Immersion SC for an immersive photo experience.
May Flowers for Ma
Is it truly Mother’s Day if flowers aren’t involved? We think not, and Fern Flower Studio is making it easier than ever to give the gift of a beautiful bouquet. They have several Instagram-worthy floral arrangements available for your choosing, or you can build your own special bouquet for mom at the Thursday Flower Bar.
If shopping is your mom’s love language, then a gift card to her favorite boutique will earn you plenty of brownie points. The newly opened Tulip in Lexington and LaRoque on Devine Street, are two chic options that offer gift cards and online shopping. Mom can find the perfect outfit from the comfort of her own home, or she can save it for a future day out.
Sip, Sip, Hooray for Mom
Let’s be honest, we’re not always the easiest to deal with. For that reason, Mom deserves a drink on her special day. You can’t go wrong choosing between any one of Vino Garage's wines in their extensive collection. If local brews are her drink of choice, pick up a pack of craft beers from Market on Main for a refreshing end to the day.
Book that Getaway
Treat your mama to a relaxing getaway in the heart of SC. Hotel Trundle's Life's a Zoo package is perfect for the mother who needs a change of scenery. Enjoy discounted tickets to Riverbanks Zoo, a locally crafted charcuterie board and a magical stay at Hotel Trundle.
