This will be my first Mother's day in Albany, and I have researched & visited a few wonderful local businesses to come up with some ideas that will make this Mother's Day special. 

Below I've listed a few great options of places to take your Mother for a beautiful and memorable Mother's Day! My first choice (hint) is brunch at the Tailored Tea. Not only is it beautiful on the outside, but the inside is just as magical and whimsical. It is the perfect place for mom to enjoy a peaceful start to her Mother's day.

For Dinner, I would suggest the very elegant Milano in Latham, serving a great selection of Italian favorites and wines. Being new to the Capital District, I love meeting locals and being able to explore. I enjoy finding my own favorite places to hang out and to bring my friends and family to.

If these spots aren't really your thing, I've listed a few more places that you can research and add to your 'maybe' list:

1. Paint, Eat, Sip

2. Provence

3. New World Bistro Bar

Mother's Day is Sunday May 8, 2016! Make it a great one.
