A brand new downtown Claremore event is designed for the whole family as a way to honor mom this Mother’s Day.
Mom’s Wishlist is a two part event – first for Mom to shop and build her list and second for Dad, kids and loved ones to gather for the Wishlist Party and purchase her gifts.
“Mom’s Wishlist is a way to ensure Mom gets exactly what she wants this Mother’s Day,” said Jessica Jackson, Claremore Main Street Director. “Think of it kind of like a registry. After the Wishlist is completed, we invite Dads, kids and other family members out to the Wishlist Party for free food and late shopping.”
Moms are encouraged to visit participating stores through noon May 10 to build a Wishlist. Each store will provide Mom with a wishlist to fill out in detail. She will then leave the wishlist at the store when she’s all done. There is no limit to the number of wishlists completed or stores used.
Later that evening, from 4-7 p.m. May 10, Dads and kids can gather at the Claremore Main Street office, 419 W. Will Rogers Blvd., for food catered by The Pink House and a copy of Mom’s Wishlist. Participating stores will be open for shoppers during that time.
“In addition to ensuring she gets something she’ll love, we’re also giving Mom an evening home alone,” Jackson said. “We will hold Wishlists through the May 17 for anyone who is not able to attend the Wishlist Party.”
At the Party, Dads can also choose to pick up a Dad’s Wishlist to fill out that night in preparation for Father’s Day.
“We want to be clear that this event is for all families,” Jackson said. “We use the terms ‘Mom’ and ‘Dad,’ but Mom’s Wishlist is for everyone! I expect to see young kids, adult children, sisters, brothers, spouses, partners, friends and all others at the Wishlist Party. If you want to make someone feel special for Mother’s Day, this is your event.”
Participating businesses are Art Nest Boutique & Studio, The Burlap Closet, Centsible Spending, Coleman Antiques, The Cozy Cottage, The District on Main, The Haberdashery, LoliPop A Sweet Boutique, Outwest Home Décor, Rhapsody Boutique & Spa, Sailor Antiques & Collectibles, Second Impressions, Thrift Harbor and the Willow Tree Mall.
“We designed this event to be a win-win-win,” Jackson said. “Mom gets the perfect gift, Dad doesn’t have to stress and local businesses are supported. Everybody wins.”
