8 Ways to Create Mother’s Day Memories Together

You appreciate your mom, and Mother’s Day is the perfect way to show her how much. When a present just won’t do, Willamalane is offering the gift of an experience you can share together.

  1. Treat her to tea.  Spend the afternoon of May 7 at the historic Dorris Ranch barn honoring that special lady in your life and enjoying sweet and savory treats. SOLD OUT
  2. Grab your binoculars. In the springtime the coastal birds in their breeding plumage are present in large numbers. Join us for our birding trip to Newport on May 11.
  3. Build a home for new friends. You don’t have to be a beekeeper to help these natural workers. Build a simple but effective home to help them do their job, and enjoy the benefits of their help with your garden.
  4. Place a bid.  Our popular Vineyards and Violins silent auction reprises May 7. The silent auction items include weekend getaways, restaurant dining, gifts and more.
  5. Liven up your landyards. Why wear a boring lanyard? In this class students will handcraft a beautiful beaded lanyard so your badge or glasses will always be handy.
  6. View magical landscapes. Join us as we head to Lincoln City to see a photo exhibit at Lincoln City Arts Center. Check out tide pools up close, then enjoy ravishing rhodies at the Connie Hansen Garden Conservancy.
  7. Make a crochet creation. Enjoy an afternoon at Dorris Ranch creating fun and easy colorful flowers to decorate a hat, lapel pin or hair barrette.
  8. Learn a new technique. Create lasting painted furniture and decor using chalk paint, which creates a rustic matte finish. Try a flower pot or a mason jar.
