There is no limit to a mother’s love. Sometimes that love is easy to take for granted and other times it is the thing that matters most in the world. The mother figures in our lives take many shapes and forms and are some of the first people that we learn about life from. As a source of nurture and comfort, mothers are a support system that give us the tools we need to tackle everything that life has to offer. With Mother’s Day only a month away, it is important to take a moment to reflect on the women that raised us and find a way to show them how much we appreciate them. If you’re starting to plan how you want to spoil your mom next month, here is a list of ideas to help you plan for Mother’s Day in Carlsbad this year.
CARLSBAD FLOWER FIELDS
The Carlsbad Flower Fields are only open for three months of the year. What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than to visit the Flower Fields on the last day of the season? The blooms will be bidding Carlsbad farewell and the Fields will be hosting a variety of live music performances throughout the day to say goodbye to the 2019 season. The Rancho Buena Vista High School’s Ballet Folklorico will be putting on a special performance in celebration of Mother’s Day. Take advantage of the celebration and bring your mom to the Flower Fields before they’re closed for the year.
MOTHER’S DAY YOGA FLOW AT CAPE REY
Treating your mom on Mother’s Day doesn’t have to be indulgent and unhealthy. Instead, Mother’s Day can start with self-care and relaxation at Cape Rey’s Mother’s Day Yoga Flow. The resort will be featuring a class created especially for moms and lead by professional yoga instructor Tammara Collins. The one-hour restorative class will allow the favorite woman in your life a chance to unwind and disconnect from the stresses of everyday life. Mothers and children can bond by creating memories through savasana and fresh ocean air.
BRUNCH OR DINNER AT CHANDLERS
After yoga, Chandler’s is right around the corner for a brunch that will ward off any hunger pains created by a physical and mental workout. Brunch is served from 10:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. and Chef Terri will be creating classic brunch favorites such as chicken apple sausage and heirloom breakfast potatoes. Exquisite starters like petite lobster and shrimp tartlet, as well as prime pepper crusted New York Strip entrees will make this brunch a meal to remember. Each meal comes with a complimentary glass of champagne.
Chandler’s will also be serving a Prix Fixe Dinner for families. The meal comes complete with dishes for all ages. From Chandler’s famous clam chowder and prime ribeye to flatbreads, Mother’s Day Dinner at Chandler’s is a place to make memories.
MOTHER’S DAY BRUNCH AT 20|TWENTY
Treat your mom to her favorite foods at the Westin Carlsbad Resort’s 20|Twenty Grill. Their menu is delicious year-round, but for Mother’s Day they have created a diverse menu that is guaranteed to please any palette. Brunch is from 10am-3pm and will host a variety of flavors from light and healthy salads to fresh sushi and poke. In addition, they will have a made to order omelet station for true breakfast lovers and an ice cream sundae bar to satisfy the kiddos. With a menu as carefully crafted like this, you don’t want to miss out!
Vue at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa is a favorite brunch spot anytime of the year. The restaurant launched a brand-new brunch menu last year that has gained recognition from diners throughout the city. With a sleek contemporary patio surrounded by views of the championship golf courses, Vue makes it to the top of the list as a prime Mother’s Day brunch spot in Carlsbad. Make a reservation early to secure your spot.
One of the greatest gifts that you can give woman who takes care of everyone else is the chance to spoil herself. The Driftwood Spa at the Four Seasons is one of Carlsbad’s most exclusive and esteemed places to get pampered. Treat mom to any one of Driftwood’s massages, or body treatments and rest assured that she will be taken care of. Detoxifying body masks with anti-inflammatory properties can make exhaustion disappear. Aromatherapy combined with a warm salt stone massage will wash away stress and leave your mom feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.
You can spoil your mom with love and attention any day of the year, but on Mother’s Day you have the excuse to do something extra special. Make your plans early so that your mom will remember this day for years to come.
