I once read that “Motherhood is powered by love, fueled by coffee, and sustained by wine.” This quote got me 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 four and under eat free. The smoked fried chicken and waffle is a highly sought-after brunch item. Lighter options are also available, 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 Las Colinas Resort, Dallas

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, and wellness, with indulgence and purpose, The Spa and Salon at The Las Colinas Resort, Dallas provides head-to-toe treatments using quality products. Moms will definitely love the spa’s seasonal promotions. Get ready to relax and enjoy the Signature Sensory Experience that will immerse your senses in this revitalizing 90-minute escape for your face, body and mind, 

For a more relaxing treatment, go with the Blues Be Gone Massage, this warming ritual begins with a steaming Blue Eucalyptus inhalation to enhance immunity and re-energize the mind. Next, a vigorous massage with invigorating Ginger Root Bath & Body Oil eases muscle stiffness, unwinds tension, and is followed by acupressure techniques to balance the adrenal system. You can make it a full day of pampering when you take Mom to the LAW for brunch before her treatment. Law Restaurant features traditional breakfast and brunch favorites as well as specialty dishes.

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.
