Moms deserve to be celebrated every day, but after the year we’ve had, moms need a double dose of Mother’s Day love! To help you plan your day, we’ve created a go-to guide to show your mom that you appreciate all she does and spoil her a little extra this year. FYI it’s Sunday, May 9th, in case you needed a hint!
WHAT TO EAT & DRINK
Texas darling, BIRD Bakery brings a taste of nostalgic southern charm, with a modern twist to the Mile High City. And their Mother’s Day offerings are sure to delight! Think tomato pie, pimento cheese popovers and lemon icebox cake.

Jacques Florent Rosé, $33
What better way to toast mom than with a fabulous French Rosé! Francois Moutard has the ability to gracefully balance a respect for tradition and an appreciation for innovation. Centuries of experience producing wine in Burgundy, with his own beautifully tended vineyards, access to great fruit and a hands-off approach to winemaking that stems from the notion that the best wines are produced in the vineyard made Moutard-Diligent the perfect partners for their innovative new French series. The artwork (by Zach Fleming, a Brooklyn watercolor painter, a chef, and an avid wine lover) on the eco-friendly canister makes the presentation even more fitting of a celebration fit for mom!
