The Bakery Life: Mother’s Day and Movemeant (Raising Dough) at Flour & Co

30 Apr

Remember celebrating May Day when you were a kid?  My sister and I would put together little care packages of flowers and goodies for our neighbors.  We’d hang them on their front door knob, ring the door bell, and run like heck so they wouldn’t see us.  What fun!  Call it inspiration for some grown up fun tomorrow.  Pack up a goodie box and/or flowers and drop it on your coworker or teacher’s desk when they aren’t looking.  Make sure to accompany it with “happy May Day!”

May also equals Mother’s Day!  Moms are deserving of some special treatment on May 10th (well, every day really), and we’re here to help with the sweets portion.  Here’s what we’ve got planned for the weekend:

~ Cherry Pie

~ Peach Blackberry Crostata

~ Mini Strawberry Rhubarb Crostata

~ Triple Chocolate Caramel Brownies (heart shaped)

~ Mini Chocolate Bundt Cakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

~ Heart Shortbread Cookies (in cute packages)

While we will have treats available for walk-ins, be sure to get Mom the treat of her choice by reserving ahead of time.  We’re taking orders now for pick up on Mother’s Day (or whenever you are celebrating with her).  Call (415-992-7620), email (info@flourandco.com) or stop in to place an order.

Our Raising Dough organization for May is Movemeant, an organization addressing our society’s issue with negative body image.  Besides dropping change in our donation box throughout the month, you can also get involved in their upcoming Dare to Bare festival on May 16th at the Marina Green from 11am to 4pm.  What a great way to get moving towards a positive body image!

With love,

~ Emily and the Flour & Co Team
