2023 Mother's Day 

Sunday, May 14

It's time to honor and pamper Mom! This Mother's Day book a getaway for her on the Oregon Coast or up in the mountains. Or surprise her with relaxing spa appointments or a festive brunch with the family.

A Special Brunch or Getaway

Traditionally, families often treat their mothers to a lavish brunch out. Book your family table at a local restaurant or make a weekend out of it by lodging at a bed and breakfast. Some retreats are known for their fantastic morning meals — like the multi-course breakfast at Heceta Lighthouse Bed & Breakfast or the delicious spreads at Eagle Rock Lodge.

Flowers and Blooming Plants

Mother's Day is a popular day to visit local gardens and enjoy the rhododendrons, the cherry trees, roses and more. Order seeds from Territorial Seed Company or pick up some beautiful plant starts at a local market. Friends of Buford Park & Mt. Pisgah host a springtime sale of native plants and wildflowers. Plant a new tree or sweet-smelling shrub together. 

Country Drives

The Willamette Valley's wine country is beautiful in spring, and there are miles of back country roads to cruise. Call ahead to local wineries to check their hours. Enjoy a glass or bottle of wine on a patio overlooking the vineyards. Pair wine with visiting historic covered bridges or stopping by outstanding small town bakeries. There are many delightful road trips across the valley that Mom may enjoy!
