Mother’s Day Events Near Miller & Smith Homes

Posted on May 12, 2024 by Miller and Smith Blog Team

Mother’s Day is coming and there are many amazing ways to celebrate near your Miller & Smith home.

It’s a holiday full of cards and wishes of thanks to the moms who have inspired us.

It’s also a day when brunches reign supreme.

Now, cards and thanks and brunches are fantastic ways to celebrate your mom, but they aren’t the only ways.

We found some unique activities near brand-new Miller & Smith homes that will make mom feel as special as we know she is!

Mother’s Day Near Birchwood at Brambleton

For moms living at Birchwood at Brambleton, Brambleton’s award-winning 55+ active adult community, Mother’s Day can also be a special day to spend with grandma (or, conversely, with grandchildren). And that’s why we recommend combining two cliché Mother’s Day presents: chocolates and handmade sculpture!

For moms and children, grandmoms and grandchildren, or multi-generational celebrations, head to the Mommy & Me Chocolate Sculpture Making Class. On May 11, from 2:00–4:00pm, let the experts at The Conche Chocolate & Cake Studio instruct you how to make a chocolate sculpture. You’ll learn from the award-winning Mastermind Chocolatiers everything that goes into making a chocolate masterpiece! And much better than a sculpture made out of clay, this one you can eat!

Mother’s Day Near Cascades at Embrey Mill

Cascades at Embrey Mill is another community where Miller & Smith build homes for 55+ active adults, so is another opportunity to let the celebration spread out over generations. This Mother’s Day event is a leisurely way to spend quality time with mom while collecting a bonus present.

Take her to Downtown Fredericksburg on Saturday, May 11, from 3:00–6:00pm, for the Downtown Fredericksburg Flower Crawl. Buy your ticket and then check in at the Visitor’s Center where you’ll get a list of participating retailers. Stroll through historic Downtown and explore all the wonderful shops. At every one on the official Flower Crawl list, you’ll receive a flower. By the end of the day, you’ll have all the gifts and treats you picked up at local stores—and a whole bouquet of gorgeous flowers! A special afternoon together and a bouquet of flowers: sounds like the perfect Mother’s Day to us!

Mother’s Day Near Beacon Park at Belmont Bay

Coming soon in Woodbridge, Miller & Smith is building 55+ active adult elevator townhomes at Beacon Park at Belmont Bay. These homes offer Lock & Leave convenience in the ultimate Stick Around & Lounge riverside setting. And since each home includes your own private elevator, you can enjoy the ease of single-level living in a luxury 3-level townhome with all the space you need and the features you desire.

If you lived here, you could spend Mother’s Day about 20 minutes away on the other side of Belmont Bay at Mason Neck State Park. Here, you and mom could experience the 26th Annual Eagle Festival on May 11, from 10:00am–4:00pm! Learn about bald eagles as you see them soar overhead. Tour exhibits by the park’s conservation partners. View wildlife up close and personal, and enjoy live music, food, and more!

Celebrate Mother’s Day at Your Miller & Smith Home

As you probably noticed, all of the above events take place the Saturday before Mother’s Day. That means, you can celebrate the whole weekend! But what to do on actual Mother’s Day? Why spend a special day at your Miller & Smith home!

With tons of space and light, every one of our new homes is perfect for entertaining, making them great backdrops for all your Mother’s Day festivities!

Happy Mother’s Day!
