Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and many families are in planning mode thinking about how to treat the special lady or mother figure in their life. Don’t get caught a day or two before trying to think of something special to do. Below is a list of events around the Puget Sound where you can take your Mom. Or, if you want a low key at home family day, there are a few ideas for you as well.
The 10th Annual Pike Place Market Flower Festival
Celebrate Mother’s Day Weekend with a trip to Pike Place Market to buy flowers for your moms, in-laws, sisters, and grandmas. With nearly 40 tents filled with beautiful bouquets, you’re bound to find the perfect arrangement to brighten any mom’s weekend. In addition to flowers, shop for floral-themed handcrafted gifts—from glass art to yard art—made by local artists. The tents will be up on Sat. & Sun. Along the west side of the cobblestone street. The market is a fun place to enjoy Seattle Views, food, and street entertainment.
Yoga and wine sound like a winning combination. Our Mother’s Day yoga class is open to all! This will be a special class as we will begin our morning with champagne toasts to all the Wonderful Mother’s out there! We will then settle down for our one hour all levels yoga practice! Our yoga practice will be the perfect mix of a little bit of challenge & a lot of relaxation. After all, our Mother’s do deserve it all! After our yoga practice, we will belly up to the tasting bar where you can choose to taste a flight of Gard Vintners Award winning wines, or you can relax with a glass of wine of your choice!
Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium

Mother’s Day Wreath Making Workshop at Studio Bloom in Seattle.
Join Studio Bloom for a Mother’s Day Wreath Making Workshop! The founder of Studio Bloom will guide you on making the perfect wreath just in time for Mother’s Day with the freshest flora in Pacific Northwest. While you’re making wreaths, sip on delicious drinking chocolate and spend some quality time with the maternal figure in your life.
At Home Celebrations
Can you think about how many lunches, dinners, and breakfasts your mom has made you? This day is your opportunity to return the favor. Treat her to a delicious meal with eggs, toast, bacon, pancakes, waffles, fruit, mimosas, coffee, and whatever else she likes. She will appreciate your effort.
Nothing is more sincere and heartfelt than a homemade gift. While taking your mom out for a fun event is a memorable bonding experience, going through old pictures of family memories is another fun way to take a trip through memory lane. If you can make a scrapbook and give it to your mom, it will make for some fun and nostalgic breakfast conversation. If scrapbooking isn’t your thing, you could create a Mother’s Day slideshow of your favorite things about her and include some pictures, videos, or anything that elevates her on this special day. Or make her a digital photo book, they make lovely gifts.
Pot Some Flowers/Picnic
Bring over some pots, flowers, and soil and spend an afternoon plotting some flower with your mom. If it’s a beautiful day outside, you can enjoy an outdoor picnic and make an afternoon outside enjoying food, flowers, and fun. Make sure you prep some food to eat!
Movie Night/ Dinner
If your mom is a lover of movies or entertainment, you could make some dinner and then watch one of her favorite films. Makes sure it’s a full-on movie night with popcorn, soda, candy, and all the fixings you could want! Make a movie bar with all the goodies she could want!
You can always gift your mom with a spa or massage gift card that she can use later down the road. In most cases, moms are happy to spend time with their families on Mother’s Day. Some quality time, food, and conversation are a great way to show your Mom you love her and appreciate her.
