GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Mothers everywhere deserve to be celebrated, and local businesses are helping make Mother’s Day extra special, even if traditional plans have to be adjusted this year.
Emily Richett shares some great businesses to shop from this Mother’s Day to support local and make moms feel celebrated.
Local florists are closed for in-person shopping, but there are plenty of options available to order ahead of time.
Eastern Floral is a great option for online Mother’s Day orders offering contact-free delivery and a range of fresh flowers, planter sets, and unique bouquets. They have locations in Grand Rapids, Grand Haven, and Holland.

Several local restaurants are offering meals to “take and bake” for Mother’s Day, like Amore Trattoria Italiana, a local favorite for its authentic, homestyle Italian food. You can find a Mother’s Day menu on their Facebook page along with how to order - note that the deadline to order is Wednesday, May 6, to pick food up on May 8-9, as Amore is closed on Mother’s Day.
