Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and if you and your favorite person happen to be visiting the sunny city of Los Angeles on May 12th, we want to make sure that you have all the fun activities to fill up your itinerary.
Luckily, Los Angeles is the hub of all things fun and picturesque, and who doesn’t want to experience a memorable trip with their moms? Whether you’re a first-timer or a long-time LA native, The Bouqs Co. has something for everyone to enjoy! Check out our Mother’s Day date ideas for those making a pit stop in the City of Angels.
Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city, the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens is located in San Marina – just by Pasadena! Because the month of May is peak bloom season for a lot of flower types, heading to the gardens at this time of year is best.
We highly recommend having afternoon tea by the rose garden and stopping by the tranquil Japanese garden!
Founded by Refinery29, the Rooftop Cinema Club is definitely a fun take on a classic movie date. Not only do they show some of the more recent features as well as classic throwbacks! You and your mom can lounge on a scenic rooftop in Los Angeles and enjoy a movie you both would love.
Are you and your mom the ultimate DIY duo? We’re all about being hands-on and learning new things, which is why we think taking a candle-making class at Stone Candle Bar in Santa Monica is the best way to spend the day!
Old Town Pasadena
Old Town Pasadena is definitely a picturesque pocket of LA if you’re thinking of taking your favorite Wonder Woman out and about. Not only are there plenty of delectable brunch spots in the area but you can even peruse the boutiques and stores on Colorado Avenue!
Here’s an insider tip: if you have a sweet tooth, we recommend trying Amara Chocolate & Coffee for their chocolate-dipped churros!
Have an appreciation for contemporary arts but don’t feel up for crowded museums in central downtown? Hauser & Wirth is located in the Arts District, and although it’s still part of downtown, the museum itself isn’t as populated as LACMA and The Broad.
With exhibitions hosting light installations, sculptures and other art mediums, you and your mom can enjoy a variety of works by different contemporary artists! The museum also houses a restaurant where you both can grab a bite to eat. And maybe have an ice cream cone at Salt & Straw nearby!
End the Day with Flowers
No matter how you plan out this upcoming Mother’s Day, you can never forget the perfect cherry-on-top to any special day: a bouquet of flowers!
The Bouqs Co. thinks any moment worth commemorating should include some #BouqLove, which is why we’re bringing you the ultimate Mother’s Day flower collection for those who want to brighten up their mom’s living space.
