Appreciating Your Mama This Mother’s Day

May 6, 2020

Happy Mother’s Day 2020… and wow do we ever need to show our appreciation for the love our dear mamas have showered upon us these past couple of months. They’ve gone the extra mile to keep us entertained, fed, educated, in clean clothes, humored when we’re feeling down, paid the Netflix bill… the list is endless.

Let Her Sleep In, Then Bring Her Breakfast in Bed

Crepes & Croissants :: Open Sunday from 10am – 2pm. This Columbia downtown favorite will box up a beautiful selection of pastries, sweet crepes, savory crepes, croissants, french toast, omelettes… order online and pickup at the store.

Let Her Put Her Feet Up In Style

She’ll remember this Mother’s Day forever when you gift her a handsome chair and ottoman, chaise lounge or recliner from our favorite furniture store, Ethan Allen.

Take Her Out for Brunch

Sunday’s Weather Forecast: Sunny with a High of 73*! A gorgeous day to take a gorgeous Mom out for brunch… served outdoors at a number of restaurants in Columbia and Lexington. Suggestions here.

Go for a Walk with Mom

What a lovely day for a walk! The birds are singing, the trees have leafed out, there’s a bit of a breeze on a cool Spring day – spend a quality morning or afternoon with Grandma, Mom or Auntie. Saluda Shoals Park, South Carolina State Parks, West Columbia Riverwalk, and Cayce Riverwalk & Timmerman Trail are open.

Take Her Treasure-Hunting

The Red Lion Antique Mall in downtown Columbia has wide aisles and is practicing social distancing for the health of their customers. Open on Sunday from 12pm – 4pm, this is the perfect place to spend an hour or two treasure-hunting with Mom. Walk alongside her as you browse! Let her share her thoughts on the antiques she most loves. Let her pick out her gift! More here.

Is Your Mom a Gardener?

If so, take her to the South Carolina State Farmers Market on Mother’s Day (open from noon til 6pm) and let her choose a tree, a shrub or flowers for her garden! A thoughtful gift that keeps on giving. More on Facebook.
