Lapis Spa is ready to spoil Mom this Mother's Day.

Reel Way
There’s going to the movies... and then there’s going to a movie experience at the new CMX Theater at Brickell City Centre. The state-of-the-art movieplex features high-definition screens, Meyer Sound Laboratories surround sound, plush reclining chairs and in-cinema dining options courtesy of chef Mikel Alonso. There’s even an app that lets you order your favorite treats. Sounds like the perfect Sunday afternoon to us. $21-$25, 701 S. Miami Ave., Miami, 786.292.2887

The Great Outdoors
Gather the whole family for an alfresco afternoon with a picnic at Deering Estate. The local landmark is inviting locals to sprawl out under the Royal Palm trees on property and enjoy snacks brought from home or a brunch spread available for pre-order from Serendip-A-Tea. There will also be hands-on activities for kids and scheduled guided tours of the historic homes on-site. $7-$12, 16701 SW 72 Ave., Miami, 305.235.1668

Healing Touch
The matriarch of the family carries a lot on her shoulders, so why not ease the stress with a spa treatment at Lapis at the Fontainebleau? The soul asylum is offering a most enticing indulgence: an Inner Balance Massage followed by a Lapis Hammam Bath for total relaxation. After that, Mom can spend as much time as she wants enjoying the spa’s wet amenities, which include mineral pools, massage jet showers and the eucalyptus steam bath. 85 minutes for $194, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305.674.4772

Tea Time
The Miami Children’s Museum is partnering with the Florida Grand Opera for a dress-up tea party for moms and the little ones. The afternoon will be marked by treats, tea service and performances by FGO company members in full costume. Kids will enjoy interacting with the singers, creating crafts and cards for mom, and capturing the moment at the prop-filled photo booth. $16, 980 MacArthur Causeway, Miami, 305.373.5437

Green Thumb
Bond together over a decadent brunch and a terrarium-making class at La Riviera this Mother’s Day. The meal will feature breakfast favorites including eggs Benedict, freshly baked waffles and pastries, a gourmet carving station, and assorted cold cuts. After fueling up, the aforementioned class, led by Succs For You Miami, will teach the basics on how to make a stunning succulents terrarium. Brunch, $25-$58, class, $15-$30, Pullman Hotel Miami, 5800 Blue Lagoon Drive, Miami, 305.264.4888
