I once read that “Motherhood is powered by love, fueled by coffee, and sustained by wine.” This quote got me to chuckling, but I don’t think it’s entirely true. We moms run on so many other awesome things that we might not always get, but we love so dearly like mani-pedis, chocolate, movies, and late-night Netflix binge when everyone else is asleep. So to celebrate Mother’s Day this year, we’ve put together a fun itinerary, featuring some of the things mentioned above, for moms to make the most of the holiday in Irving. 


Brunch at The Ranch

The Ranch is known as one of the go-to spots for celebrating special occasions in Irving and the DFW metroplex as a whole. For this special holiday, the restaurant is hosting a Mother’s Day Brunch on Sunday from 10 a.m to 3 p.m. These farm-to-fork offerings make for the perfect mother's day eats, plus kids 4 and under eat free. The smoked fried chicken and waffle is a highly sought-after brunch item. Lighter options are available as well, with menus like blackened Catfish and Gulf Shrimp and if you feel like splurging try the Cadillac Mac & Cheese. Reserve your spot. 


Mani-Pedi at The Four Seasons Well & Being Spa

7750 N MacArthur Blvd #160

Nothing says “I love you mom” like giving her a chance to take care of herself. Moms often put others’ needs above theirs, so giving her a mani-pedi session at one of Irving’s finest hotel spas is the least you can do! Fusing a spa, wellness, with indulgence and purpose, the Well & Being Spa at the Four Seasons hotel in Las Colinas provides head-to-toe treatments using quality products. Moms will definitely love the spa’s seasonal promotions, (seasonal and promotions is broken in the text on-line, see screen shot below) such as the Watermelon Basil Manicure and Pedicure treatment. Get ready to relax and enjoy this fruity concoction featuring a Watermelon Basil Vodkatini scrub to buff away dead skin and imperfections, followed by a moisturizing Melon Lotion to leave your hands and feet smooth, hydrated and ready for the summer weather! 

For a more relaxing treatment, go with the Anti-Agig Citrus Drench which begins with a full-body exfoliation with a luxury citrus scrub to purge free radicals, followed by a soothing, restorative wrap and Vitamin C souffle mask. Providing rejuvenating, antioxidant and firming results from the very first session. Learn More 

You can make it a full day of pampering when you take Mom to the LAW Mother's Day Brunch before her mani-pedi. She will enjoy a four-course a la cart brunch in Law Restaurant featuring traditional breakfast and brunch favorites as well as specialty dishes. Pricing: Adult - $95 | Children under 12 - $45 (exclusive of tax and 18% service charge).


Drinks & Desserts at Toyota Music Factory

340 W Las Colinas Blvd

Now that your nails are done and looking pretty, it’s time for some drinks and desserts at Irving Entertainment District, mamas! This multi-entertainment-and-dining complex features so many different cuisines and cocktails to choose from, we know you’ll find something you like! Head over to Gloria's for some sweet and creamy Flan and margaritas. It’s your day so why not let your hair down and rock your shoulders a bit, right? If you’re in the mood for some wine and fancy cheese platters, head over to the Mercy Bar & Lounge upstairs, where you get to sip some fine wine while enjoying a live music performance overlooking a gorgeous view from the patio. Frozen Yogurt is never a bad idea at TCBY, where you can encourage Mom to take a cute pic to celebrate your time together. 


Take Mom to a Show

3333 N MacArthur Blvd

Show playing at Irving Arts Center

Your Mother’s Day has been beautiful and awesome so far, so let’s end it with a bang! Get ready for a show you and mom will love filled with wisteria, romance and comedy! Grab a seat the Irving Arts Center and enjoy Enchanted April. Under the Mediterranean sun, four women clash, and then begin to bond and bloom. Sunshine and wisteria ease the stresses of marital woe and post-war 1920s society...until their men show up to once again upset the balance. Based on the novel The Enchanted April, this story overflows with charm, exploring the rejuvenating effects of an Italian sojourn on two beleaguered London housewives, and the two upper-class women they recruit to split the rent on a vacation villa. Tickets range from $22-$29. Grab your seats!
