Well, we can all admit that Mother’s Day is just not going to be the typical traditions and celebrations we have known. It will probably be a much more low-key and smaller affair, as it will be at my house too.   But that does not mean it cannot be fun! So here are a few ideas of how to make it special, and rather easy to make it happen.

Some Stellar Ideas… You’re Welcome!

  • Breakfast In Bed- Now, what Mom does not like to be served a tray in bed with her favorite coffee, tea, juice or even champagne? (no judging) And breakfast treats are an added bonus. Easy to do. Someone just needs to go the market and gather the items a day ahead. Dad that means you!
  • Family Yard Games- Corn-hole or similar lawn or board games can be fun for the family while enjoying lunch or an early dinner together.
  • Rent A Boat And Cruise The Newport Harbor- There are two companies that I know are open right now, as of this writing (5/5/20). They are both located on Balboa Island and you could enjoy this with a small family gathering, or even present the gift and book it over the next few weeks.
    1. Rive de Balboa – 504 South Bay Front, Balboa Island, CA
      (949) 202-6469 https://www.rivadebalboa.com/
      Stunning wooden electric boats— they are bring back the nostalgia of the good ole’ days.  Offering excellent customer service to all those looking for a unique experience, with added perks to keep guests coming back time and time again.
    2. Newport Pontoons – 504 South Bay Front, Balboa Island, CA
      (949) 631- 3333 http://www.newportpontoons.com/

These boast range in size from 19 feet to 26 feet and are easy to embark. The boats can be rented, or guests can request a Captain Charter and be chauffeured around the harbor by a certified Captain.

3. Voyagers Rentals- 504 South Bay Front, Balboa Island, CA
(949) 954-7850  www.voyagersrentals.com  They are renting “duffy style” boats for up to 12 guests.



Dining– There are a ton of great Brunch and Dinner options to enjoy. For most menus guests need to order by Thursday or Friday at the very latest, and then arrange a pick up time for Saturday and Sunday. Please help the restaurants out here. They are working so hard. Please don’t wait ‘til the last minute. Help them to order and plan accordingly. Thank you! Here are some fabulous menus I have researched for you, and they are listed by neighborhood. Hope it is useful to you!
