April Showers Bring May Flowers

By Christina Skeldon May 4, 2022

We made it to May!  April showers bring May flowers rings true of Mother's Day celebrations this weekend. I know that 90% of my readership are moms and to you, I want to say: thank you, I love you, now take a break! Truly. I am so happy to be doing this mom thing with all of you and because I am right there with you on how hard it is, I know how badly we all need a break. So take advantage of the one day we get a year and put your feet up. Also, celebrate with flowers. Here are your top 5 things:

1. Pick Your Own Tulips, Thursday- Sunday

Cross Street Flower Farm has beautiful mid and late season tulips blooming just in time for PYO tulips this weekend. With sunset hours on Thursday and morning/afternoon hours on Friday-Sunday, it is the perfect opportunity to bring your little ones to help pick your Mother's Day flowers or to grab some flowers for any mother figure in your life!

2. Mother's Day LUMINARIA, Friday

The luminaria is a beautiful tribute honoring all the mom's that are no longer with us put on by empowerHER®, a nonprofit organization with a specific mission - to empower, support, and connect girls of all ages who have experienced the loss of their mothers. With the connection of friends and family, the Boston community will be illuminated by a sparkling display of personalized bags. Learn more about this incredible event here.

3. Mother’s Day Floral Installation at Lucky Finn, Saturday-Sunday

The Mother’s Day flower pop-up installation at Lucky Finn Cafe will return for its 4th year. Seeking to celebrate in a big way, while honoring local mothers in the community, several local businesses have come together to create an installation of over 3,000 flowers on the facade of the popular Scituate Harbor coffee shop.

4. Mother's Day Flower Truck, Saturday

Head to Seabird coffee in Duxbury to make your own bouquet for Mom! The Petal Bar features mix & match stems to create your own custom flower arrangement. A fun and unique experience for anyone to enjoy! You can find the Petal Bar truck there at 8 am until sell out!
