Five Ways to Celebrate Mother’s Day in Westerville
Mother’s Day is coming up soon and Westerville offers a variety of ways for you to show mom how much you care. Here are our top picks for how to celebrate Mother’s Day in Westerville.
1. Pamper Her
Show mom you appreciate all she does by treating her to a spa day. Relax and trust the professionals at Fantasy Coiffures Salon offering complete hair care and nail care services in the heart of Westerville. Disconnect from the outside world at Press Studio in Uptown Westerville. The studio offers hand and foot therapy treatments and nail enhancements redefining mom’s nail spa experience. For more than just relaxation, Skin Oasis and Driftwood Aesthetics, Spa & Home offer medical grade skin services and products, in addition to massage therapy.
2. Get Creative
With busy everyday life, moms rarely get to tap into their creative side. Uptown Art & Clay offers Sip & Create classes where you can bring your own drinks and make something creative to take home. There are a variety of classes to create something from spring gnomes to garden mushrooms, bird feeders and more! Mother’s Day weekend offers a Create & Sip class to create your own small platter. Purchase mom a ticket for the class or pick up a gift card for a future class on another day. Instead of buying the traditional bouquet of flowers for Mother’s Day, head to the Westerville Florist and check out their in-store BYOB (build your own bouquet bar) featuring seasonal flowers to create the perfect bouquet together.
3. Explore the Outdoors Together
The parks in Westerville this time of year are beautiful, with fresh green grass, blooming flowers and trails for miles. Go on a bike ride with mom through the various trails connecting Westerville parks. Stroll through the gardens at the serene Inniswood Metro Gardens. Walk by the water and lookout for birds along Hoover Reservoir. Go on a ladies-only bikepacking overnight ride on Mother’s Day weekend! You’ll meet up at the Westerville Public Library Saturday at 1 p.m. and head out to Rustic Knolls Campground together. Plan a picnic in the park. Grab your own picnic basket and pickup “afternoon tea” and some snacks from Asterisk Supper Club. Then head to one of the many nearby Westerville parks to enjoy a picnic in the park with mom. Explore all Westerville parks and trails.
