Take Mom out for two amazing experiences in one. First, stop at Mary Ann’s Tea Room for a special Mother’s Day Brunch on May 10. Dine on danishes, waffles and eggs Benedict. Pair your meal with a premium tea or cocktail, or both, if Mom wants. After you’ve had your fill, stop and shop in Enchanting Embellishments where Mom will find a little of everything. She’ll find everything from designer fashions, jewelry and accessories for herself, to interior designs and furnishings for her home. Now that’s a day fit for a queen!

Don Quixote Final Saint Louis BalletBring Mom a little adventure and romance this Mother’s Day Weekend with a trip to see the Saint Louis Ballet’s performance of “Don Quixote.” Based on Miguel de Cervantes’ famous novel, the story translates onto the stage as one of the most technically challenging ballets out there, with incredible dancing that marries classical ballet and Spanish dance, bullfights and gypsies. The performance is great for moms of any generation, as well as the youngsters, so the whole family can join in. Catch both evening and matinee performances May 8-10 at Touhill Performing Arts Center.
