Have you got your Mother’s Day plans set? It’s also TCU graduation weekend so Fort Worth will be bustling with activity. Here’s a few options to honor the special women in your life.
While I love brunch as much as the next gal. Unless you have your reservations already, the pickings will be slim. Here’s some fun alternatives.
Jen Williams does a great brunch! This time she’s popping up at Rahr Brewery. The dishes all incorporate Rahr beers as well! You can find the menu and ticket sales here. I’m intrigued by the “Adios Pantalones” vinaigrette that tops the heirloom tomato and greens salad, the “Texas Red” brined Wagyu short rib and the “Triple Treat” beer battered donuts.
Stroll through Fairmount seeing some beautiful homes with mom then go enjoy a meal on Magnolia. “The Fairmount Historic District in Fort Worth, Texas will host the 37th annual Fairmount Tour of Historic Homes, May 11-12 this year. There will be 5 beautiful houses on this year’s tour as well as a special bonus property currently undergoing renovation.”

Maybe your mom is like me and has a black thumb and needs some new plants. Even if she is a plant lady, check out this cool collaboration between Melt Ice Creams and GROW (see what I did there, ice cream is cool). Bring a bottle of bubbly and have some mom-osas while picking out a lovely plant!
“Enjoy the Plant lounge on the Magnolia Patio (hint hint a great time to take mom plant shopping)! BYOB- we will have a limited amount of raspberry sorbet for mom-osa’s, our take on a mimosa is a frozen sweet sorbet topped with your choice of bubbles!”
Create a lovely brunch for mom in this hands on class. You’ll prepare brunch classics like Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon & Lemon Dill Hollandaise and Herbed Rosti Potato Cakes. Just a few spots left!
Dumplings, donuts and drafts. Say that three times fast! Sunday at Funkytown Donuts and Drafts, pop-up queens Hao & Dixya will be serving up their wonderful dumplings! Check them out Sunday from Noon- 3pm.
The photos from this event look stunning! A great evening activity.

Start Mom’s weekend off right with some beignets!
“The Dusty Biscuit Beignet Bar is gonna kick up dust at Craftwork Coffee! We’ll have classic French Quarter beignets with more powdered sugar than should be legally consumed, as well as a handful of different flavors, glazes, and toppings. Wash it all down with Craftwork’s expertly crafted coffees and teas. “
Have you been to the new Morgan Mercantile brick and mortar? I’m obsessed with everything in there. I popped in the other day for a tee-shirt and walked out with way more!
