Miami is chock-full of amazing ways to celebrate Mom. Whether the mother in your life has a green thumb, an artistic soul, or a yogi spirit, there are countless ways to spend Mother’s Day weekend in the 305.
Spend the Day at Aventura Mall
If you’re looking for a one-stop shop for Mother’s Day, we’re your ticket there. Start the weekend off alongside Mom at our Mom-aste Mother’s Day Yoga event on Saturday, May 12, at 9 a.m. While brunch is included at Mom-aste, Le Pain Quotidian is a short distance away if you’re craving artisanal pastries and delectable tartines.
On Sunday, take Mom for a day of pampering and shopping. Peruse the Aventura Market, a farmers’ market overflowing with freshly cut flowers and curated delicacies from more than 25 local vendors, in the New Wing next to Zara starting at 12 p.m. Let the shopping continue at Topshop with the help of one of the store’s personal shoppers.
Finally, the perfect Mother’s Day concludes with a little pampering. Unwind and put those shopping bags down for a mani-pedi break at Ocean Breeze Nail Salon.
