Having a hard time trying to figure out what to do for Mother's Day? Here you go! The perfect day planned for your mom's special day.

You don't have any excuses now! Just follow this step-by-step guide for Mother's Day and your mom will be the happiest around. It comes complete with flowers, quality time together, and food. Here we go...

Start your day off at the Radisson in Utica - They're offering a special Mother's Day Brunch that has everything (seriously, like everything). Just some of the treats we would like to point out:
-An Omelet Station
-Bacon and Sausage
-Chocolate Covered Strawberries
-Roasted Atlantic Salmon
-Chicken Riggies
-Desserts and Pastries
So it doesn't matter whether you go closer to breakfast or lunch, you'll be all set. Make sure you make your reservations BEFORE Mother's Day, though. You can get more details on the Radisson's Facebook Page here.

After brunch, it's time to get mom some flowers. If you bring your mother with you (instead of picking up flowers ahead of time), she can pick out what she really wants. Maybe she wants flowers in a vase, maybe she wants a hanging basket or something she can plant outside. That opens up your options of places to go.

Now, it's time to soak up some quality time with mom. The weather is looking pretty good for Sunday - Partly cloudy, mid-60s - Perfect weather to be outside for a bit. Maybe go for a walk, say the Utica Zoo? That way you can talk, catch up, and you have something to look at if the conversation tails off once or twice. Besides, who doesn't like seeing the animals at the zoo.

Wrap up Mother's Day, by taking mom out to dinner. Ask her what she wants, and go there. It's that simple. We'll list some suggestions, in case you're having trouble coming up with ideas, but this one is all up to you and your mom. There's plenty of choices for great food in CNY (usually, the hard part is narrowing it down). Hopefully, this helps:
-Carmella's Cafe
-Delmonico's Italian Steakhouse
-Kirby's
-The Secret Garden
-Piggy Pat's (for that barbecue lover)
-Ancora
-Symeon's Greek Restaurant
...That's just a small handful of all the amazing restaurants in Central New York (like, a really small handful). But it should at least get you thinking.

And there you have it! A great way to give your mom a great Mother's Day. We hope she enjoys it!
