Give Mom the Gift of a Treasured Memory

On this Mother’s Day, and every day, we honour and celebrate the wonderful women who raised us. Typically we show our appreciation through heartfelt cards, or thoughtful gifts, but what if instead on May 12, you take Mom out and create a special memory together? This year, we suggest shaking up your annual Mother’s Day tradition with one of these events taking place in York Region, all dedicated to celebrating Moms.

Let Mom flex her creative muscle at Winged Canvas Art Hub in Markham where they will be hosting three themed Mother’s Day Paint Parties on both Saturday and Sunday. The first event features Animal Family Landscapes (Saturday 10:00am – 12:00pm), followed by Colourful Flamingos (1:00pm – 3:00pm), and Vibrant Floral Bouquet the next day (Sunday 2:00pm – 4:00pm). All art materials are provided, and you and Mom will get to take home a work of art, and a memory both of you will treasure.

For Moms with children ages 5 to 10, get crafty together and bring your little ones to the Elman W. Campbell Museum in Newmarket on Saturday, from 1:30pm to 3:00pm to paint a terra cotta flowerpot and make a homemade Mother’s Day card.

How would Mom fancy high tea and a concert? On Saturday, May 11 take her to the King Heritage & Cultural Centre for a special event titled, To Mom With Love, and treat Mom to a traditional high tea accompanied by the musical stylings of Catherine Hughes, “A Diva in the Rough”. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door, but the event may sell out in advance.

On Sunday, May 12, make reservations for Mother’s Day Brunch at Kingbridge Conference Centre & Hotel. This stunning buffet will not disappoint and features delicious options for everyone to enjoy. On the menu is a sweet and savoury selection of gourmet dishes, and did we mention there will be complimentary mimosas? Seating times are still available, but reserve quickly to secure your spot.

On behalf of all of us at XYR, we want to wish all the Moms out there a Happy Mother’s Day, thanking you always for all that you do!
