Mother’s Day is less than 48 hours away, yet you have absolutely no idea how you’ll celebrate. Admittedly, a card bought from the nearest bookstore would be more than enough to tug at any mother’s heartstrings, but we think 2019 should be the year that you honor her through a few shared experiences designed especially for the occasion. Here, Savoir Flair helps you plan how to spend this very special day – morning, noon, and night.

Morning

Good food and beautiful flowers may just be the perfect way to kick off Mother’s Day. Enter: the Breakfast and Blooms package at Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates. The hotel has partnered with 800flower to offer a two-hour flower arrangement workshop during which participants will be guided by a professional florist, pick up some practical tips and tricks, and even take home a bouquet (and some bragging rights).

This will be paired with a healthy breakfast – think: nourishing smoothies, smoked salmon, quinoa and avocado salad, and egg-white omelette with asparagus – served at the plush Aspen by Kempinski lounge. The package will be offered on Thursday mornings, starting March 21, from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Call (+971) 4 409 5999 or e-mail dining.moe@kempinkski.com to book.

Noon

By now, you’ve earned a little R&R – you know, having arranged flowers and all – so make your way to what can only be described as the most luxurious address in Dubai: Burj Al Arab. Here, Talise Spa is helping Dubai residents spoil their mothers with the Just for Mum offering.

Priced at AED 1,600 per person, the experience includes a 60-minute ‘Burj Al Arab Enrichment Massage’ and a 30-minute ‘Express Facial’ alongside afternoon tea at Assawan Lounge as well as access to spa facilities – iconic infinity swimming pool included. The package will be available throughout March. Find more details and make a reservation here.

Night

If you’re unfamiliar with Meet the Parents at Courtyard Playhouse, this is the night to get acquainted. The hilarious series sees the real-life stories of guests re-enacted on the spot. Conversations between mom and dad, the promises they made and broke, the stories of their youth – it’s all explored. And, in honor of mothers across Dubai, the independent theater will be hosting a special Mother’s Day edition from March 21 to 22.

Bear in the mind that the show will run from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., but Courtyard Playhouse has made provisions. Cassette, a sleek new bistro located opposite the theater, will stay open past its regular hours just for the show’s attendees – you’ll even get a discount when you show them your e-mail confirmation.
