Flowers and Sunday brunch is a wonderful way to treat your mom on Mother’s Day. If you’re looking to add something to it or want to do something different, here is a wonderful list of specials being offered by a wide array of small businesses on the Treasure Coast of Florida. Amazon is wonderful, but let’s not forget to show some support and shop local too. Remember, small businesses are made up of people who live right here in the community too.

Here are some of the responses I got to help you with your shopping. There has been no compensation paid and none of these are affiliate links. I hope you enjoy a fabulous Mother's Day weekend!
