May 8th is Mother’s Day. She was your first best friend. Your first teacher. Your first boss. Celebrate her with more than flowers and a card (although flowers are great, please still send flowers). We’ve pulled together some thoughtful ways to celebrate Mother’s Day in Plano, with options in every corner of the city.
1. Dine and relax.
On the east side of town, Chocolate Angel, inside High Street Antiques Mall, is a café and tearoom offering a delicious menu of sandwiches, salads, soups and desserts. Treat mom to their relaxing afternoon tea service.
Spa Habitat The Retreat is the perfect place for mom to unwind after lunch. The spa occupies a beautiful 108-year-old Victorian home in historic downtown Plano and offers luxury spa treatments in a calming atmosphere.
In west Plano, Artin’s American Grill offers a fine dining experience with the best service around. Enjoy a diverse menu with comfort food like Baby Back Ribs or more exotic flavors like Spicy Thai Noodle Salad.
Cleverly tucked away in The Shops at Legacy, The Woodhouse Day Spa is a tranquil spa retreat offering rejuvenating services mom is sure to enjoy.
2. Learn something.
Bringing out her inner artist couldn’t be easier with a guided painting class at Sip-n-Doodle. After two hours of painting and sipping wine, mom will leave with a new masterpiece and lots of memories.
Give mom the chance to cook with a top chef in a hands-on class at Tre Wilcox Cooking Concepts. Tre and other professional chefs of his choosing teach an assortment of cooking classes.
3. Explore the arts.
Enjoy our city’s diverse culture at the 13th Annual AsiaFest May 7 in downtown Plano’s Haggard Park. Try new foods, listen to music, watch dancers perform, or just sit and enjoy the colorful parade of costumes.
The Deerfield Art & Music Festival returns to west Plano for its fourth year May 7. Bring a blanket and picnic basket and enjoy an evening of free Broadway, brass, classical and jazz music, as well as arts activities for the kids.
