Top Mother’s Day Ideas: Discover Indianapolis’ Best Mother’s Day Experiences

Things to do around Indy to celebrate Mom!

Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and it’s time to start planning a one-of-a-kind celebration that truly honors the remarkable women who hold a special place in our hearts.

Bring on the Mother’s Day Brunch

Brunch is a Mother’s Day classic. Here are a few Indy favorites to consider.

  • Trader’s Point Creamery in Zionsville offers brunch every weekend, so they really know how to do it! For this Mother’s Day, consider dining in their picturesque setting situated right on the farm or order an entire brunch menu to go. Their special Mother’s Day menu includes salad, two entrees, three sides and a dessert. There are optional add-on mimosa kits and flower bouquets. Meals start at $125 and feed four adults.
  • Conner Prairie has planned an exclusive Mother’s Day Brunch, featuring a delectable waffle bar, breakfast tacos, dessert buffet, and much more. In addition, guests can enhance their brunch experience by indulging in the tiki bar.
  • Seeking a breakfast-in-bed option? Call The Fresh Market and reserve a Mother’s Day brunch for four, including quiche, bacon, blueberry muffins, fruit, and a bouquet of flowers for $34.99.

Mother’s Day Tea Time

Celebrate Mother’s Day with an elegant tea party.

  • To show gratitude towards mothers, The Cake Bake Shop offers a special Afternoon Tea experience for pampering, indulgence, and delight. Guests can unwind and spend a delightful afternoon together, savoring a glass of Champagne, warm scones with clotted cream, and rich preserves. They can also enjoy an array of delicate finger sandwiches, tempting desserts, French pastries, and a choice of six loose-leaf tea varieties from the menu. As a token of appreciation, mothers will take home a lovely assortment of macarons. May 8-15; $95/person. 
  • Tea’s Me Cafe Indy invites everyone to join them in celebrating Mother’s Day with an afternoon of fun. Attendees will have the opportunity to try new teas, learn about their benefits, and enjoy some of their favorite sandwiches. Due to limited seating, early registration is recommended.
  • Grab your daughters and gal pals for this unforgettable train ride tea experience. Passengers will board the historic Nickel Plate Express from Hobbs Station in Noblesville for a 45-minute ride to Atlanta, Indiana. Once in Atlanta, passengers will disembark for an elegant afternoon tea at Earthly Endearments. May 13; $87-$200.

A Spa Day for Mom

There are a couple of spas in the Indianapolis area that have put together special packages just for Mother’s Day weekend.

  • The Woodhouse Day Spa in Carmel, Fishers and Zionsville is offering three different packages: made for mom ($260) includes a massage and facial; that mom glow ($410) includes a therapeutic stone massage and facial; and All About Mom ($655) includes The Woodhouse Escape (a massage experience), a hydrafacial and a lavender sugar scrub pedicure.
  • The Conrad Hotel in Downtown Indianapolis provides an ideal setting for mothers to unwind and rejuvenate. With a comprehensive spa menu, moms can choose from various treatments and enjoy exceptional spa amenities before or after their sessions. Guests can also relish a dip in the infinity pool and sip on champagne. For those not seeking treatments but still desiring the spa experience, $75 wellness day passes grant access to the pool, hot tub, steam room, and sauna.
  • If one of these spa day experiences is not in the budget, consider creating an at-home spa day for mom. Decorate the bathroom with candles and flowers. Play light classical music. Fill a basket with bath salts, bubbles, a mask or two, and reading materials. Bring her a menu of treats and snacks and cater to her.
