How to treat mom to an unforgettable Mother’s Day weekend in Atlanta
Mother’s Day is a time to show love and appreciation to the most important women in our lives who gave birth to us, raised us, sacrificed for us and love us unconditionally. There’s nothing more special than treating mom to a day filled with love (especially love that takes the form of that special unique touch!) This Mother’s Day, take the opportunity to spoil your mom, or mother figure, with these unique ideas around metro Atlanta that will make her feel cherished and appreciated.
Treat mom to a spa day
Let’s face it - being a mom is hard work and can be a full-time job in itself. It’s only fair to treat mom to a little bit of self-care, and there’s no better way to do that than to indulge her in a luxurious spa day. If you’re looking for the hottest new facial, Aviary Beauty and Wellness now has a new offering called the “Glo2 Facial by Geneo,” which exfoliates the skin, nourishing and transforming for instant smoothness and better nutrient absorption. The cost is $275 for a 60-minute session and $350 for a 75-minute session.
Take mom to Halcyon in Alpharetta
Halcyon, an outdoor shopping center located in Alpharetta, is pulling out all the stops this Mother’s Day. Their Groovin’ on the Green event features live performances all weekend, ranging from former “The Voice” contestant Sasha Hurtado to talented violinist Michelle Winters. You can also share laughter and memories together as you unleash your inner yogi, surrounded by goats at Farm Animal Yoga. Treat mom to a beautiful, custom bouquet at Gussied Up Flower Truck, and have brunch at one of the many restaurants at Halycon, such as Cherry Street Brewpub, which is hosting a Mother’s Day Brunch in partnership with Society Boutique. For $179, you can get a brunch reservation with two brunch entrees and two mimosas, as well as two bracelets for you and mom to match. Tax and tip are included!
