Toasting mom with mimosas at brunch is a tried-and-true way to celebrate, but for a slightly more memorable (and hands-on) Mother’s Day, treat her to a creative class. We’ve rounded up eight ways to celebrate any mom, whether she’s art-inclined, a great cook, or a wine enthusiast.
Neighborhood Goods – Plano
Wednesday, May 8, 6-8 pm, $25
Head to Legacy West’s modern department store, Neighborhood Goods, for a floral arranging and wine tasting workshop. Create a bouquet with Flower Gals Co., sample bites and bubbly by the store’s in-house restaurant, Prim and Proper, and take home a personalized illustration of you and your mom by Mauve Paper Co.
Times Ten Cellars – Lakewood Heights
Sunday, May 12, 12:30-2:30 pm, $36
Maybe your mom is inclined to buy whatever rosé has the chicest packaging (same), or maybe she’s a wine connoisseur with a love of full-bodied Spanish Reds. Either way, this educational tasting with a sommelier is sure to please.
Nordstrom – The Galleria
Saturday, May 11, 2-5 pm, $65
Spend a morning with mom perusing The Galleria’s shops, then head to Nordstrom for a hands-on floral arranging class with Alice’s Table. Leave with a bright bouquet that has an “undone” feel—a perfect centerpiece for a Mother’s Day dinner.
Sur La Table – Knox/Henderson
Saturday, May 11, 9 am-12 pm, $69
Sur La Table’s professional chefs will be on hand to help as you mix batter, craft crisp shells, and fill each with handmade buttercream and ganache. Once you both become macaron masters, you can enjoy the delicate French desserts together anytime.
Charming @ The Market – Dallas Farmers Market
Saturday, May 11, 3-5 pm, $65
Local chocolatier Yelibelly will oversee attendees as they craft floral-infused truffles by hand. Take home twelve sweet treats to savor later.
TOASTED Coffee + Kitchen – Lowest Greenville
Saturday, May 11, 9 am-12 pm, $65
Local artist Andrea Castaneda, known for her work with pressed flowers, will be co-hosting with Dallasites101, and providing all workshop materials, from fresh to dried flowers, to help you design an original, frame-worthy creation.
Wildflower Art Studio – Denton
Saturday, May 11, 10:30 am-12 pm, $25
Perhaps your mom is already an artist in her own right. Wildflower Art Studio’s bright, airy space is offering up studio time (and mimosas) for those working on personal projects. Bring your watercolor set, scrapbook, or sketch pad, or purchase a craft kit from the Denton studio.
North Haven Gardens – North Dallas
Sunday, May 5, 1:30-4 pm, $60
Bright seasonal blooms and gardening tools inspire this still-life watercolor workshop. Brand new to art? Don’t stress—attendees can arrive early to brush up on the basics before the workshop begins. (Supplies not provided.)
