Monarc's Guide to Mother's Day

May 6, 2021

Mother’s Day is this upcoming Sunday, May 9th, and if you’re still not sure yet of the best way to spoil mom this year… let us help! There are lots of Mother’s Day events happening around downtown Miami and plenty of ways to make moms--and aunties, sisters, grandmas, and anyone filling that special mom role in your life--feel special. Read ahead for Monarc’s guide to the best ways to celebrate Mother’s Day 2021. 

Mother’s Day Brunch  

All moms appreciate a little extra attention on Mother’s Day, and what better way to start off the day than a perfect brunch at one of the excellent restaurants near Monarc! Neighborhood favorite Café Bastille, an all-day French café mom is sure to love, serves up delicious Parisian treats like freshly baked croissants, fluffy pancakes, and bottomless mimosas, to boot! Fi’Lia in Brickell is offering a three-course, prix-fixe Mother’s Day brunch menu priced at $45, brimming with mouth-watering options like avocado toast, breakfast pizza, and croissant with lox. Be sure to book a reservation in advance here.


Explore Deering Estate 

Head to the Deering Estate to celebrate mom’s day in a special Miami setting. From 10am-4pm on Sunday, General Admission tickets include the option to bring your own picnic and enjoy a personalized Mother’s Day brunch on the grounds. Special Mother’s Day gift bags are also available to purchase through the Deering Estate Foundation. Find more information on the day’s events, and reserve your tickets, here.

Visit Fairchild Tropical Garden 

Skip the traditional Mother’s Day flowers this year, and bring mom the entire garden instead! A visit to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden offers a lush sanctuary for both you and mom to enjoy. The botanic garden is hosting several Mother’s Day events this year, including a “Mommy and Me Floral Crown” making class geared towards moms and young children, Saturday morning yoga, and a Mother’s Day Dog Date Stroll. Find more information and reserve tickets, here.


Enjoy a Miami Spa Day

Looking to splurge on mom a little extra this year? Nothing beats pampering mom with a day at one of downtown Miami’s fantastic spas. At Exhale Spa, choose from a range of treatment options, including facials, massages, therapeutic scrubs, and more! Find all of Exhale’s offerings, and book a treatment, here. In Brickell, check out the spa at The Mandarin Oriental for a variety of luxe treatments and a view overlooking Biscayne Bay.


Keep it Simple

This past year has been long and challenging, and the most important thing is showing our moms how much we love them! There are plenty of ways to keep things simple and still show just how much we care, whether it’s classic breakfast-in-bed or treating mom to an at-home mani/pedi. If celebrating remotely, planning a virtual paint night together or taking an online flower arranging class are both excellent ways to enjoy Mother’s Day. Whatever you decide, the quality time with mom is what it’s all about!


We want to see you how you’re celebrating the moms and mother figures in your life! Be sure to tag and share your special day with us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. From all of us at Monarc, we wish you a very Happy Mother’s Day!
