Mother's Day and artMother’s Day and art . . . for many people this conjures up fond images of elementary school projects made with macaroni noodles, construction paper, and glue. Lots of glue. These treasured keepsakes were given the same unconditional love our mother’s gave (and give) to us. While these gifts were great for many a Mother’s Day, at a certain age we have to give mom something more than a pasta-based projects and a toothless smile.
Beyond Flowers and Chocolates
When the holiday was first conceived, Mother’s Day was intended to be a simple affair: mothers were honored with a white carnation and children were expected to spend the day with them. Nothing more, nothing less. In 1914, the U.S. officially recognized Mother’s Day and as the holiday grew in popularity, gift giving became an expected component of the day. Today, everywhere from gas stations to grocery stores stock up weeks in advance with the Mother’s Day essentials: flowers and chocolates. Handing these over with a greeting card is safe, easy, and expected. Many of us just don’t know what else to do and are afraid that breaking from this tradition will lead to disastrous results.
The Gift of Time and Wine
The good news is that we can help. We’ve done our research and discovered that what mom’s want most is a break from their routine. Oh, and another small thing: wine. Pinot’s Palette combines these into a gift uniquely suited for Mother’s Day. For a night out, our upcoming classes are the perfect opportunity for your mom to rediscover her creative side while enjoying good wine and tasty food. Want to create a special occasion for you and mom? Pinot’s Palette is the perfect place to spend some quality time in a unique, upscale atmosphere. Painting with your mom over a glass of wine gives adult children a chance to reminisce with mom over the proud messes you created at your kitchen table . . . and this time she won’t have to clean up when you’re finished!
