Moms wear many hats: Teacher, Chef, Nurse, Taxi, Confidante, Coach, Volunteer, and Cheerleader. If ever there was a time to celebrate all that Moms do, it’s Mother’s Day! If you’re planning a party or gathering to celebrate your mother, Party Host Helpers can help! Our New York City and Hudson Valley Regional Director, Rebecca, shared a few of her favorite venues, gifts, and tips to help you shower all the mothers in your life with love this year.
If your Mom likes to be a lady about town, we’ve got a couple of wonderful NYC Hot Spots that host a Mother’s Day Tea.
What’s more elegant than The Palm Court in The Plaza Hotel? While maintaining the remarkable architecture of the original design, The Palm Court pays homage to the beautiful setting of nearby Central Park and combines that with the posh elegance you’d expect to experience in New York City.
Lady Mendls Tea Salon is located inside The Inn at Irving Plaza. “The Victorian style architecture and furnishings recreate a time of sublime elegance.” At Lady Mendls, you can treat your Mom to a five course tea consisting of classic finger sandwiches, fresh baked pastries, and a delicious variety of the finest teas. Sounds delicious!
For Moms on the go who would prefer a relaxing day at home with family, we have got the perfect solution! Hire Party Host Helpers to help prepare and serve the most delicious DIY Mother’s Day tea in the comfort of your own home.
Mom may also want to relax with a cocktail, so set up a MOM-osa Bar! Offer juices such as Orange, Cranberry or Strawberry Kiwi and pair with your favorite Champagne or Prosecco. For our Moms-to-be, substitute the alcohol for sparkling juice or ginger ale! Don’t forget to garnish with your favorite berries.
When it comes to the food selections, keep them simple and light. Moms don’t want to feel guilty about indulging on their special day.
Gather some freshly baked whole grain bagels, and top with cream cheese, sliced smoked salmon, and garnish with a sprig of your favorite fresh herbs.
Play up the color pink and adorn your brunch table with some mason jars overflowing with fresh and fragrant Pink Hydrangeas. Tie pink and white balloon clusters to a chair and give Mom a throne for the day!
When showering Mom with gifts, think practical! A Party Host Helper gift certificate is the perfect idea for the Moms who love to entertain. Our gift certificates are good for one Party Host Helper for 4 hours – a $180 value!
There’s no shortage of places to pamper Mom in NYC; treat her to a day of pampering at The Great Jones Spa with a Hydrofacial and then a Great Jones Spa Signature Massage.
Support the “Mom Culture” by shopping for the lady in your life! Whether she’s Raising Ladies or Gentlemen, we can all agree that “Raising Tiny Humans is exhausting!”
Lastly, and most importantly, make sure you tell Mom how much you love and appreciate her this Mother’s Day! Handwritten notes from the kids, spouses, and parents will be timeless treasures that the Mom in your life will cherish forever.
