On the second day of Mothers Day my son gave to me:
A gorgeous pair of earrings from the Mohawk Territory. Rebecca Maracle is a local Feather Smith with an incredible talent for designing and creating truly unique gifts. An artist, Traditional Medicine Healer and valued member of the Haudenosaunee, Rebecca through the teachings of her people learned to respect Mother Earth and all she has to offer. Her gifts, attributed to the Creator and the well-guided training and teachings of her ancestors, was taught to pass along her heritage and beliefs through a traditional style of artwork. Having won numerous awards, her art can be found in private collections around the world! The strength and beauty of nature, the creativity and culture of her people are captured in the original designs. Shop online or in store to see for yourself. Give your mom a gift as beautiful and unique as she is.
On the third day of Mother’s Day my husband gave to me:
A three-course dinner from Belleville’s casual, fine dining restaurant called Birdy’s. At Birdy’s you can dress up, dress down or somewhere in-between; either way, you’re going to enjoy an array of carefully chosen menu options to suit all occasions. Birdy’s menu is handmade and prepared in-house, using high quality ingredients, fresh vegetables and herbs from their garden, meat from local farms and butchers, while also offering beverages from local brewers and wineries. Celebrate this Mother’s Day with breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner — she won’t be disappointed!
On the fourth day of Mother’s Day my children gave to me:
Four delicious treats from mouth-watering local bakeries. If you listen closely, your sweet tooth is whispering: “Wannamaker’s Bakery and Cafe” in Trenton and “Glazed and Confused” in Belleville. These aren’t your grandparent’s typical doughnut shops: delectable, fantastic and beautifully crafted. The baked goods look so perfect, it almost seems wrong to bite them.. but trust me, you need to bite them. After you and mom finish your cinnamon bun at Wannamaker’s, you can venture to the back of the shop and peruse the vintage, antique furniture and home decor (mom will love it). Next up on your day with your favourite lady are the words “all day breakfast”; if that didn’t make you smile from ear to ear, you need to check for a pulse because you might be dead. Or, there is a good chance you may not be from this planet; but if you aren’t an alien and are in fact alive, you will most definitely love Glazed and Confused. With 12 different decadent doughnuts (try and say that 10 times fast) for mom to choose from, 15 mini cheesecake varieties made in-store daily and waffles galore, Glazed and Confused will have you hooked! So whether you’re taking mom out for Mother’s Day breakfast or grabbing treats to go, this is the spot to go for all your sugary needs.
On the fifth day of Mother’s Day son gave to me:
A five-star dining experience in the heart of Bay of Quinte. A modern, upscale yet casual atmosphere, your mom will love the experience at Nineteen restaurant. Offering modern dishes with an imaginative twist on classics or inspired by nouveau cuisine, it’s not just about great food — it’s about being different, standing out and forging their own style. You will find these and many more reasons to keep Nineteen as the number one spot for the special mother in your life this May 13th.
On the sixth day of Mother’s Day my children gave to me:
A six pack of beer from Signal Brewery. Proudly brewed in the historic Corbyville distillery district, this brewing company is keeping the heritage of the buildings alive with great beer and world-class entertainment. While keeping the past in mind, they are always looking to the future for new inspiration. Signal is the perfect environment for you and mom to relax, reflect, and make time to create new memories together.
On the seventh day of Mother’s Day my son gave to me:
Chips for Shorelines Casino, and their seafood buffet: YUMMY. Experience great food, drinks, entertainment and gaming delivered with unparalleled hospitality. Stay, relax, dine, play, rock out and explore all there is to offer in this grownup playground. Shorelines offers the perfect retreat from the everyday for you and your mama with all the amenities of a full entertainment destination. It’s a place that fuses adventure and excitement with the easygoing character of rural-urban life and is truly a place like nowhere else.
Eight hours of sleep at the local hotel of my dreams: TownePlace Marriott, Belleville’s first and only extended-stay hotel where you can balance work and life. This home-like setting with high end modern amenities will make you feel at home with a fully equipped modern kitchen, warm and inviting living space, high-speed internet access and a hot breakfast daily. The location offers mom easy access to shopping at Quinte Mall, many nearby restaurants and entertainment next door at Shorelines Casino. Enjoy quaint boutique and artisan shopping downtown or catch a show at Empire Theatre. The gift of a room at the Quinte region’s Marriott TownePlace Suites is one from the heart.
