Treat Your Mom To the Perfect Mother's Day in Atlanta
Words by Ashley Locke

Mother’s Day is almost here, and this year is a big one! Last year, many people did not get to be with their moms due to the pandemic, so it’s extra special to get to celebrate in-person this time around. If we’re being honest, moms deserve more than one day of recognition—but if it’s going to be one day, we might as well make the most of it!

Here’s how to treat your mom to the perfect Mother’s Day in Atlanta:

Start your day early—the most important part of the day is spending time with your mom, so an early morning start gives you as much hang time as possible. Grab a couple lattes to-go from Muchacho, a colorful coffee shop that’s sure to put you in a good mood, then stroll the Beltline. Use this time to catch up, laugh, and love on your mom!

Since you’ve worked up an appetite walking, head over to South Atlanta to treat mom to a mouthwatering brunch at Full Commission. From biscuits and gravy to granola yogurt bowls, there’s something to tickle your tastebuds—and don’t forget drinks! Bright mimosas and aperol spritzes take your meal up a notch.

Now that your appetites are satisfied, keep heading south, 35 miles outside of Atlanta, to Good Grit Magazine’s first designer Showhome! It’s a complete renovation of a mid-century modern home, featuring furniture from Industry West, lighting from Circa, and so much more! The showhome, unlike many others, is a space that’s actually livable—full of design ideas you can use and love in your own home.

After getting inspiration from the showhome, take mom to the nearby Browns Crossing Antique Market to hunt for hidden treasures, furniture, and other finds that can transform your home. If you’re still in a shopping mood, swing by The Good Junk Company to discover more one-of-a-kind pieces.

Once you’ve stocked up on new home decor, take mom to Revolution Doughnut or Honeysuckle Gelato for a tasty treat—then head home to start redecorating! The pieces you discovered together will be an everlasting memory of the day, and a constant reminder of your love to your mom.
