Flowers By Meagan Moore, Guest Contributor

Moms wear a lot of hats – from acting as our chauffeur, to our in-house chef, to our best friend, and therapist. Each year, Mother’s Day comes around for us to spoil our moms and remind them how appreciative we are for everything they do throughout the year. This Mother’s Day in Charleston SC, thank your mom by treating her to something special – there’s no shortage of restaurant specials, activities, and spa treatments! Here are 5 of the best ways to spend Mother’s Day in Charleston this year.

On The Beach

Treat mom to Mother’s Day Brunch On The Beach, complete with southern fare and ocean views at The Citadel Beach Club from 10am – 1pm. After brunch, “relax on the porch with a mimosa, glass of wine, a local beer, or build-your-own Bloody Mary.” Stay for the afternoon and enjoy the beach from the comfort of The Citadel Beach Club and all of its amenities.

On The Water

For a unique experience, take mom on a Mother’s Day Brunch Cruise around Charleston Harbor while sipping a complimentary mimosa and enjoying live, smooth jazz. She will love taking in the sea air and the harbor views. Sailing from Patriot’s Point 11:30am-1:30pm.


Spend the day with mom soaking up the sun on Folly Beach. For an elevated dining experience, reserve a table for the Mother’s Day Brunch at Blu Restaurant & Bar. Perched at the ‘Edge of America,’ directly on Folly Beach, Blu combines spectacular views with a menu dominated by “sustainable seafood, regional flavors and local ingredients.” Brunch will be served 11am-3pm.

On The Peninsula

Just before mom’s day on Sunday, take Thursday to celebrate her and learn a new skill! Modern Floral and Mercantile and Mash are offering an interactive and bubbly experience for you and mom to have together. Learn the craft of building the perfect floral arrangement for every season and sip on sparkling wine with hors d’oeuvres at their Mother’s Day Flowers, Bubbles and Bites on May 10 from 5:30 – 7pm.

Note: Mother’s Day in Charleston SC can be spent in so many ways, but it’s not where you decide to enjoy the day that matters, it’s spending the day with mom. After all, you wouldn’t be here without her!
