Mother’s Day 2019: All The Best Places To Celebrate With Mom In Saratoga

Here’s your first and only reminder: It’s Mother’s Day this Sunday, May 12. And thanks to an incredible weekend of events in the Capital Region, it’ll be easier than ever before to show your mom just how much she matters. (Flowers never hurt either.)

For those wanting to go the traditional route, there’s no shortage of restaurants offering special Mother’s Day menus this Sunday. Enjoy brunch buffets at The Gideon Putnam, Saratoga Casino Hotel and Longfellows. For the non-buffet crowd, head over to Salt & Char, The Blue Hen or 2 West, all of which are offering their own special brunch menus. For those surf-and-turf-loving moms, The Wishing Well in Wilton is offering a Mother’s Day lunch and dinner, as is Prime at Saratoga National. And if you’re not completely stuffed by the time you’re done with all of that gorging, why not grab a little pick-me-up with a Mother’s Day High Tea at the Inn at Five Points (with refreshing snacks and hors d’oeuvres provided by Austin Bayliss Catering and tea from Saratoga Tea & Honey Company)?

If you’re feeling slightly more adventurous, we’d suggest driving up to Lake George and taking mom on a cruise and a Mother’s Day Champagne Brunch with the Lake George Steamboat Company (moms get to cruise for free and also receive a discounted brunch). Or pay a visit to the Saratoga Automobile Museum where moms get in for free. You can also keep it classical with the Schenectady Symphony, which is presenting a special Mother’s Day Romance concert at Proctors Theatre. And for the artistically-inclined, the Art in Mind Creative Wellness Studio in Glenville is letting mom’s paint for only $10 on Mother’s Day. Of course, after all of the day’s events, don’t forget to unwind with a glass of wine at Mother’s Day at the Saratoga Winery.

Mother’s Day probably seems like it’s miles away at this point. So take a look at all of the rest of the wonderful things you can do in the Saratoga area this week in preparation for the big day. saratoga living‘s hand-curated all of our top events for the rest of the week.
