At Marquette Avenue Events, we wholeheartedly believe in telling the unique story of your event from the early conception stages to the final bittersweet moments of your special day. We believe in making your entire journey timelessly detailed, seamless, personalized, and most of all - FUN! We recognize it’s easy to get lost and even a bit overwhelmed in the wide stratosphere that has become events and weddings these days. This blog is a continuation of providing insight, wisdom, and inspiration into throwing you the best celebration, and helping you make memories that you’ll hold onto long after the night has ended. Come on in, grab a beverage (or pen and paper), and even bring a friend! We look forward to continuing the conversation and hearing from you very soon!

For your go-to shopping partner, search for a gift that will fulfill her retail wants and needs! Every fashionista mama loves closet staples, so go for stand out pieces that she can add to her wardrobe. Check out some of our favorite items to complete your moms look!

MAE's Tip: Add a little extra shine to your mom's outfit by gifting her jewelry!

Help the lady with a green thumb get down and dirty with all of her gardening needs. Whether this gal has a greenhouse full of plants or is often found in the garden growing her own produce, here is a list of some of our favorite items to gift!

There is no place like home, especially when your mother is there! Moms are known for having the warmest and coziest homes so gift her with items to make her humble abode even more inviting. Not only are our top picks necessities for every home, but they are truly unique pieces!

MAE's Tip: When giving your mother a beautiful frame we always recommend taking it a step further by adding a sentimental touch filling it with a favorite photo of the two of you. Or represent your growing family by including a shot with your spouse-to-be!

Moms are known to travel near and far for their children at the drop of a hat which means they've earned the miles to take trips for themselves. Make your mother's travels more enjoyable by getting her items that will surely take the hassle out of getting to her next destination!

Every woman needs some time to herself but mothers deserve to be pampered as frequently as possible. From their nonstop work ethic, to showing unconditional love, moms typically go above and beyond to make their families happy. Reward the well-deserving lady in your life by gifting her these luxury items for some much warranted R&R!
