President Woodrow Wilson made Motherís Day an official American holiday back in 1914.
This special day has been dedicated to honoring motherhood ever since, which is normally done with flowers, greeting cards and long distance phone calls. This year, why not make this Motherís Day a truly special event that your mom will never forget? Here are two Colorado destinations to spend this Motherís Day.
Experience top-notch restaurants and entertainment in Denver
Start your Motherís Day right by picking up some of your motherís favorite flowers. One of the best shops in the city to do this is Lehrerís Flowers on West Mississippi Avenue. Lehrerís Flowers is the biggest flower businesses in Colorado. Another terrific flower shop is Bouquets in lower downtown, which earned a spot on Bon Appťtit magazineís list of ď10 Best American Florists.Ē
After giving your mom a nice bouquet of flowers, consider taking her out for a pleasant afternoon brunch. Hideaway Steakhouse is located only 12 miles north of downtown Denver. This steakhouse is offering a special brunch from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Motherís Day. For mothers who have a taste for boutique wine or handcrafted cocktails, a trip to Beatrice & Woodsley could be a perfect way to spend the day. Beatrice & Woodsley is offering a special brunch menu this Motherís Day, but remember to call ahead to make sure they arenít already booked to capacity.
Entertainment in Denver is easy to find, especially with a trip to either the Denver Zoo or Denver Art Museum. Besides offering plenty of rare and exotic animals, the Denver Zoo offers 80 acres of land to explore, which allows time to share old memories, exercise together and strengthen the bond between mother and child. The Denver Art Museum is perfect for the artsy mother and offers an extensive collection of art exhibits. Its gift shop is offering a 20 percent discount to museum members on Motherís Day.
