Happy Mother’s Day!

Screen Shot 2016-05-02 at 7.35.56 AMMothers come in all shapes, sizes, and places. Some gave birth to you and raised you in their home; some chose you to be a part of their family, others married into your family, and yet others are actually aunts, grandmothers, friends — those who have nurtured, guided, supported and loved you. We celebrate all of you this week and remember with love those who aren’t with us anymore.

 

Speaking of nurturing, guiding, and supporting — it’s also Teacher Appreciation Week! Marcel’s has the perfect gift for your mom and your favorite teacher – we’ve got a whole table full of fun ideas that will fit your budget.  Sophisticated, classic, retro, whimsical or charming – it’s here at Marcel’s!
