When we think May, we think bees, sunshine, flowers, and of course, Mothers. A month that is full of new births in nature is the perfect month to celebrate all the mothers, and mother figures in our lives.
Like a number of us, we will have to express our appreciation to our loved ones from a distance this year, but be it in person from two metres away, or on the screen of an electronic device, the message will be the same: Love you mum.
If you are searching for the perfect way to tell someone you love them, Granville Island has so many options, and all in a safe, socially distanced outdoor environment. If you are leaning towards flowers, the bouquets and floral arrangements from V&J Plants are enough to take anyone’s breath away. Rogers’ Chocolates is offering a special “Mothers Day Sleeve” assortment of chocolates, and ChocolaTas and Bon Macaron in the Public Market, as well as newcomer, Kasama Chocolates on Cartwright Street,
Another go-to item on Mother’s Day is the traditional Mother’s Day Brunch. While indoor dining remains closed, Granville Island’s restaurants continue to serve visitors on their patios, or as takeout. The Sandbar is offering a take-away brunch, and if you’re thinking more along the lines of dinner, the Keg is featuring a Mother’s Day three piece meal kit that will make you look like a star chef. Try Granville Island Delivery Co. for a deluxe order-ahead Mothers Day Brunch basket, “complete with mom-osas”, and of course, if your mum prefers to spend their time creating culinary magic, the Net Loft’s Market Kitchen has it all, including some very eco friendly kitchen tools.
For anyone looking for unique treasures and gifts, the Granville Island shops and artist studios are a must for locally made and designed goods, including Amity Designs in the Net Loft, who will be holding a special 15% off sale from May 1st to 9th for Mothers Day.
How ever you decide to show your appreciation this Mothers Day, whether near or far, we hope you have a lovely one!
