Mother’s Day 2021

Mother’s Day of 2020 was a bit odd, to say the least. This year, Mom’s special day falls on a Sunday, and the forecast says it is going to be a bright and sunny one, exactly what mom deserves! With businesses back open, you can celebrate this special day in a variety of ways and also help support the local economy. We’ve put together a list of businesses below that would love to help you celebrate the matriarchal figure in your life.

Field Floral Studio

Field was founded in 2014 by Meg, a Portland teacher who yearned for more from life. Like many great things, Meg was inspired by a sudden epiphany one day while watering her garden. She decided to combine her love of flowers with her natural talent for coordinating color palettes and compositions and opened a floral design studio. Her bouquets and arrangements are breathtaking, unique, and unrivaled in quality. This, combined with her commitment to sustainable floristry, had the city of Portland welcoming Field with open arms.

Field is still taking orders for Mother’s Day arrangements, and they offer delivery in Portland and the surrounding areas. Their studio is a private workspace, not a storefront, so all orders and inquiries must be made online or over the phone. Their arrangements are made using seasonal flowers, and samples can be viewed on their website.

Chocolats Passion

Catherine Wiersema is a French Chocolatier who studied at the world-renowned Ecole Chocolats. She brought her passion for chocolate to Portland in 2017 when she started Chocolats Passion and hired two local pastry chefs to join her team. The chocolates that these ladies create are not only delicious, but they are visual works of art. Some of the chocolates in their Mother’s Day collection look like precious gems that belong in a museum under glass.

The order deadline for shipping has passed, but Chocolats Passion is still taking pre-orders for pickup. They have many elegant boxes to choose from, including the Butterfly Box and the Mother’s Day Tower, which has a little bit of everything inside. My favorite is the Nine Heart Box. The box alone is beautiful and looks like it would contain lavish jewelry. Inside are nine heart-shaped chocolates that have been meticulously painted with airbrushed cocoa butter.

Hot Suppa

In 2004, two brothers went on a tour across America with a mission to visit as many local restaurants as possible. From Tex-Mex to bbq to seafood, these brothers ate their way across America, and when they returned home to Maine, they brought with them their newfound culinary knowledge that they used to establish Hot Suppa in Portland.

Treat the matriarchal figure in your life to brunch this Mother’s Day Sunday. Hot Suppa does not take reservations for brunch, but they accept call-ahead seating, and even if you have to wait, their food is well worth it. Most of their dishes are inspired by Southern cuisine. They have good ol’ fashioned grits, pulled pork breakfast sandwiches, and fried green tomatoes. One of the best-selling dishes on their menu is the Mother Clucker: a fried chicken breast served with a buttermilk biscuit, cheddar curds, and a whole lot of sausage gravy.
