Madre, mamá, mother, mommy and mom – they go by many names, but they are the only ones who can fill their role. From empowering us when we were younger to cheering us on now that we are older, our mothers, or maternal figures, are the unsung heroes behind the curtains of our stories. So this Mother’s Day, we hope you are planning to return just a fraction of the energy that our mothers pour into all of us. Join us on this Buy El Paso Adventure to get our tips on how to make sure your mom enjoys her special day just a little more.
Who’s mom doesn’t love fresh cut flowers? That’s why we visited Heaven Sent Florist and spoke with the owner, Rafael Delfin. Heaven Sent Florist offers fresh flowers, flower arrangements, plants, blooming plants and candies.
The store has been locally owned and operated for 24 years. When asked about their success, Rafael shared that their flowers are expertly handled and they have the best stock, meaning once they leave the store, they look fresher and last longer than flowers bought in larger retail stores. It is also much easier to buy flowers locally as opposed to an out-of-town service or a premade bouquet from the store, according to Rafael. This way you know exactly what you are getting, you can trust the quality of the product and have a say in its design, he added.
It’s not too late to order flowers for your mother! Call (915) 584-7330, visit their website or come to the store.
Since it is Mother’s Day, you should plan to have a little bit of fun and celebrate your special lady! So we are showing you a restaurant that is throwing a celebration fit for a queen – Los Bandidos de Carlos & Mickey’s.
There, we spoke with the manager, Tony Nassri, who told us the restaurant plans to have a live music trio playing classic hits your mom will love. They also will feature a special menu made with moms in mind. The special menu includes mole, albondigas, tortillas, flautas, enchiladas, carrot cake and of course margaritas.
The restaurant is open on Mother’s Day from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tony says it is best to arrive early! On a holiday like Mother’s Day and with food as good as they serve, Los Bandidos de Carlos & Mickey’s will fill up fast.
While these are just a couple of (really good) ideas for you, we hope you celebrate your mom and any maternal figures in your life. The world would hardly be the same place without them. Remember to give them a hug and remember to Buy El Paso!
