Celebrate Mom With Marcel’s This Mother’s Day! April 18, 2018 by Jill Foucre Leave a Comment As Mother’s Day quickly approaches, we once again have the opportunity to celebrate and honor our mothers and all of the women that have helped raise us and our children. Moms, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, friends, can all play an important role in our children’s lives. Finding gifts that matter and are meaningful, can be a bit of a challenge. What better way to show your love and appreciation than with a hand-made gift and some simple pampering? Marcel’s is here for you. Join us on Saturday, May 5th for a special Mother’s Day event where your child will create their very own masterpiece to honor that special woman. Local artist, Kristin Fischer owner of Muirwood Reclamations, will be at Marcel’s from 11 am – 3 pm to work with your little artist (or artists of any age) to create personalized concrete coasters. These coasters are perfect for a bedside table, coffee cup, or wine glass. After your artist has created their own coasters, Kristin will take them to be glazed and will return them by Wednesday, May 9th to be picked up from Marcel’s in plenty of time for Mother’s Day. To start Mother’s Day off on the right note, you and your kids can present her with a darling breakfast-in-bed basket. This basket will include our housemade individual-size quiche, Hudson Henry granola, a Strawberry and Champagne chocolate bar, spring luncheon napkins and a bit of light culinary reading. We are also proud to include a bottle of fresh pressed juice from Glen Ellyn’s newest shop, JOY Bar. Call, stop in the store or order your breakfast basket online. Baskets are $35.00 and can be picked up on Saturday, May 12th. Finally, we will have a Mom’s Day Wish List that mothers, grandmothers, etc. can complete. Have mom or grandma stop into the store to complete her Mom’s Day Wish List or download a copy of the wish list. Is she a connoisseur of kitchen tools? Loves to set a beautiful table? Now is the time to find the perfect way to honor her! Happy Mothers Day to all of the women who mother in so many ways!
