Families are Finally Getting Back Together for Big Events, Which is Why This Mother’s Day is the Perfect Time to Celebrate Mom.
Whether it may be pampering, making a special gift, or creating a unique experience or meal, it is all about honoring everything mothers do for the family all year long. To help with this, lifestyle journalist and super mom Anna De Souza is sharing her secrets to make sure celebrations for mom, grandmom and all the special mothers everywhere are successful and memorable.
A GOOD PLACE TO START
Start with a toast that includes Riboli Family Wines, the makers of Maddalena Wines and Stella Rosa Wines. With three unique rosés, treat mom with a delicious brunch pairing. For example, the wild mountain berry and rose petal notes of the classic Stella Rosa Rosé pair perfectly with fluffy red velvet pancakes. If mom leans more savory, the fully sparking rosé, with notes of citrus, is refreshing and delicious when paired with the classic chicken and waffles and the Maddalena Rosé is bright with raspberry and yellow peach undertones and is the perfect partner with a classic quiche.

UNIQUE GIFT SUGGESTIONS
The stunning ebony wood cutting boards from Stella Falone are great for the mom who loves to cook and entertain. They are gorgeous, sustainably sourced and get this, they are a new sister-company of Taylor Guitars, the #1 acoustic guitar brand in the world played by artists like Billie Eilish and Zac Brown. Building a guitar is like building a puzzle, and Stella Falone refashions the pieces of South African ebony wood that do not quite fit on Taylor’s instruments into beautiful and functional kitchen showpieces! Everything is ethically sourced from Cameroon and every purchase supports the Cameroonian employees and the replanting of thousands of ebony trees.

The collection’s gorgeous artwork was designed by African American artist Avery Williamson, and Anna loves all the formulations that have prestige ingredients that hydrate to nourish, restore and balance the skin like Vitamin C, Olay’s proprietary B3 Complex, and petrolatum along with notes of manuka honey and apple cider vinegar. Pick these up at Target, Walmart and Meijer for under $8, a great way to treat mom to a little self care. For more information, visit www.olay.com
