As influential and invaluable as moms are, they deserve more than just their 24 hours in the sun on Mother’s Day. That’s why French Lick Resort is extending the celebration to 31 days of love that will span the entire month.
“Celebrate Mom All Month Long” will treat mothers and their families to special programming throughout the month of May and all across the resort. Whether mom’s idea of fun is a day on the links, a night at the casino, putting paintbrush to canvas or unwinding with a good glass of wine, there is something to make every mom’s month special.
The centerpiece of the month for moms is Mother’s Day weekend, with a Sunday brunch on May 13 as well as a Mother’s Day package including overnight accommodations at West Baden Springs Hotel, brunch for two and flowers delivered to her room. Mothers can also take advantage of a complimentary round of golf from Friday, May 11, through Monday, May 14, at The Donald Ross Course at French Lick where moms can play free with a paying guest.
Moms enjoying crafty ventures will also want to partake in a brand-new event being offered at French Lick Resort for the first time. Cheers to Pallet Painting, set for Monday, May 7 (6pm), allow the chance to relax, sip and paint in an instructed class yielding a decorative creation to take home as well.
