Get ready to embark on a delightful journey through DFW as we reveal the best ways to honor and spoil your mom on this joyous occasion. It'll be a full day if you try to tackle all the items on our Mother's Day itinerary, but it'll also be a day full of memories made!

Start with a morning stroll around white rock Lake

White Rock lake is an especially upbeat spot to start the day with a morning stroll with mom. Starting points for a picturesque morning walk include the spillway at Garland Road and White Rock Drive as well as West Lawther Drive near Williamson and White Rock Road.

coffee at Berni Bean

Berni Bean in Downtown may just be one of the most girly coffee shops we’ve ever laid our eyes on!! The interior is all pink, and the coffees are just as fabulous as the vibe. They're serving a bold Costa Rican brew that is sourced not only from the owner's family farm, but from other small farmers in Costa Rica who they have made fair trade deals with as well.

brunch at The Glen

Located at the Star in Frisco, The Glen is an elevated, but super-fun restaurant, and it's perfect for a girl’s day or date night! The floral ambiance is beautiful and makes a great place to take Instagramable photos! The shareable drinks are so huge you will need at least 3 other friends to drink it all with! If you’re not in the mood to share, we recommend the “Flirt Bird” cocktail that comes with an adorable rubber ducky on top! They also have live aerial shows that are unlike anything you'll see at any other restaurant in town!

walk off brunch around knox street

Stick around Knox Street for a while and get a look at some of our favorite area hangouts, including Foxtrot, another amazing spot to sit a spell on the patio and have another coffee and pastry or just grab mom a cute gift, as well as Restoration Hardware, one of our town's leading purveyors of luxury home goods and furniture. While you're at it, why not also step inside and take a look around at Crate and Barrel or one of our favorite consignment shops in Dallas, The RealReal?

Then Head to the Arboretum's mother's day market

Treat mom to a day in the garden while you visit local artisans and pick up homemade treats at this year's Mother's Day Market at the Dallas Arboretum! This special gathering of premium vendors is happening this year May 13-14, from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. You won't be able to miss it when you walk in — the vendors will be set up right inside the Arboretum's Main Entry Plaza.

grab a snack at the exchange at at&t Discovery District

Savor a grab-and-go or a sit-down experience with an expansive array of cuisines, all while taking in the beauty of the AT&T Discovery District's Media Wall, Plaza, and the Globe. They've got two stories, 16 different eateries and two full bars at The Exchange, so you're sure to find mom the perfect mid-afternoon snack here!

pop in to the historic adolphus hotel downtown

And while you're downtown, why not take mom for a quick drink or stroll around the grounds of one of Dallas' most venerated hotels and downtown landmarks, The Adolphus. Grab chic gifts at Commerce Goods + Supply, an iced coffee at Otto's Coffee and Fine Foods or something a little stronger at Rodeo Bar!

have a drink at coupes

Coupes in Highland Park is one of the most fabulous and refined stops on our list. They have more than 15 champagnes and sparkling wines by the glass as well as more than 50 labels by the bottle. It is THE spot for celebrating mom with bubbles in Dallas this Mother's Day. You can also snack on some light menu items that pair perfectly with bubbly.

dinner at bistro 31

Since you've already ventured out to HP for the last item on the list, why not stick around for dinner at this Highland Park hotspot with adjoining lounge? Head upstairs to Lounge31 to sip the iconic Chanel No31 cocktail before you feast on some of the best sushi in town. Be sure to snap plenty of photos while you're here because it is also one of the cutest places in town to hang out with Mom.

Get Crookies at Le Reve

Apparently the croissant chocolate chip cookie is all anyone is talking about right now so we made it our mission to find the best ones! Le Reve is a cute dessert shop and bakery in North Dallas serving their iconic crookie creations with three different flavors to choose from: chocolate chip, snickerdoodle and lemon!
