Coming up with ideas for Mother's Day isn't the easiest thing in the world. Sure you can get her a card with some jewelry, flowers, dinner and all the works which is lovely - but then hasn't that been done?
You want to do something different for your mom? Or even better WITH your Mom? Take her to 17 Chapel, the site of this year's Vanguard Designer Showhouse. And as a special Mother's Day offer Vanguard is offering reduced admission.
No bones about it, Mom will appreciate a tour of the Designer Showhouse, probably more so than cliche gifts recycled over and over again year after year. With that said, here are the top 10 reasons why bringing Mom to see the Vanguard Showhouse would be a smart thing to do.
10. It shows creativity. Moms love creative things.
9. It's thoughtful. Really, where else can Moms go and mingle with other Moms about decoration?
8. It's inexpensive. Bring Mom and Vanguard will knock $3 for you and $5 for Mom off the $18 admission fee.
7. Free tips on interior design. You probably need it more than Mom does.
6. The novelty. Moms don't forget events like a tour of three majestic condos at the Vanguard Showhouse. Take her and she will remember it forever.
5. You get to meet professional local designers. These are people who volunteered their time and services for three months to put together the stunning condos. Show them appreciation, and get their contact information; you never know you might just need a good designer one day.
4. Buy her a painting, or lamp, or that end table she has glued to her eyes. How often will you get a chance to see Mom admire something so much right in front of you? She's worth it, buy it for her.
3. You may just fall in love with 17 Chapel so much you'll end up moving there, thus fulfilling the void in your life you have been looking to fill all this time.
2. It's for a good cause. Vanguard is the biggest fundraiser of Albany-Symphony Orchestra. Everything Vanguard does supports the Symphony.
1. It's in Downtown Albany. Just a few footsteps away, you can take Mom out to dinner, a live performance, even a tour aboard the Hudson with the Aqua Ducks.
There you have it, the top 10 reasons to bring Mom to the Vanguard Showhouse this Sunday. Remember, bring Mom and save on admission for yourself and even more on her. Plus, she's worth it.
