A Sarasota Mothers Day has the potential to be absolutely amazing – with perfect weather, so much to do, and so many beautiful venues, we have the opportunity to make Mom’s day extra special. At Beneva Flowers, we love our moms and we love Sarasota- just like you do – so thought we would offer a few suggestions, just in case you are new to the area. And remember, flowers make every day extraordinary, so don’t forget to browse our Mother’s Day collection so that she has the perfect floral arrangement or gift to match your perfect day.
Take Her to a Garden Party: Selby Gardens is world renowned for exquisite botanical gardens. Located directly on Sarasota Bay, the views are unparalleled, and the gorgeous flowers, plants and trees create the perfect backdrop for Mother’s Day Brunch, catered by another hometown legend, Michael’s on East. Brunch is served at half hour intervals from 10:30 a.m. to 130 p.m. If Mom loves gardening and flowers, this is a fabulous way to celebrate her. Surprise her at home with a keepsake orchid from Beneva Flowers to remember the day.
Go Wild with the Kids: Sarasota Jungle Gardens offers free admission all weekend to those Moms and Grandmoms who prefer to find adventure with the entire family! Creative exhibits, interactive shows, petting zoos and beautiful, often shady grounds make this a fantastic family outing.
Take a Cruise: LeBarge Tropical Cruises leave from Sarasota Bayfront Park Marina, and are another local tradition. Set out with a marine biologist for a dolphin and manatee watching cruise, or settle in for a relaxing afternoon sightseeing tour of Sarasota’s shoreline. This is a relaxing day and beautiful day for all. Don’t forget to head to Marina Jack’s patio or O’ Leary’s Tiki Bar for a meal after your adventure.
Go For a Walk: Whether over the Ringling Bridge, around Island Park, or along our amazing Main Street, there are so many places to walk, relax and explore. Have a picnic (complete with flowers!) prepared and waiting, or arrange to have all of Mom’s favorite people meet you at a restaurant, for an unexpected ending to a casual day.
Here’s a Tip: When you make reservations at a restaurant, send someone ahead of you with a bouquet of flowers for your table. She’ll love how gorgeous they are, and will be even more thrilled that they are hers to take home.
We love being a part of the Sarasota community, and honoring our Sarasota mothers. Whether she lives here or across the miles, we will make sure she knows just how special she is to you, with a floral design, plant or gift from Beneva Flowers. Call us today, Mother’s Day is May 14!
