The weather is warming up and the days are getting longer. That can only mean one thing: spring is upon us! As we put the cold, snowy days of winter behind us and look forward to spring, we may start thinking about upcoming special events such as Mother’s Day. Mother’s Day is May 14 this year, and while it is still a couple of months away, it’s never too early to start thinking about how you can show the mothers in your life how much they are appreciated. At The Crossroads Eatery in Wood Dale, we’ve got a couple of suggestions on how to celebrate with mom this year.

Throw a Surprise Party!

Whether it’s for your own mom, your sister who just had her first baby, or a friend who is a mom, throwing a surprise party is a fun way of showing your love and appreciation. Regardless of how many people are invited, she will be so amazed that you were able to get all of her favorite people in the same place at the same time. If you have concerns about choosing a venue, The Crossroads Eatery has you covered! We have a number of private party packages to choose from.

  • Open Bar Package: available in two or three hour increments, this is a great package for large or small parties.
  • Appetizer Package: Excellent choice for mid-afternoon parties or those later in the evening.
  • Buffet Package: With unlimited appetizers for three hours, this is great value for larger parties.
  • Dinner Package: An amazing value when hosting a party during dinner hours.

When you choose to host your surprise party at The Crossroads Eatery, our kitchen manager will work with you to create a party to remember! Contact us today to learn more about hosting a private function at our restaurant!

Hire a Caterer!

There probably isn’t a mom out there who wouldn’t appreciate some help with cooking sometimes.
Do you have any of the following events coming up that may require your mother to spend a lot of time in the kitchen?

  • Graduation
  • Family Reunion
  • Baby Shower
  • Wedding Shower
  • Anniversary

If so, why not give mom the best gift of all? When you give a mom the gift of professional catering services, you are giving her the gift of time, and there isn’t a mother out there who couldn’t use more time! Having someone else do her portion of the food prep for a large event will give her the freedom and flexibility to relax and spend time with family before the event. Isn’t that what special events are all about? Hiring catering services will also reduce her responsibility in determining how many servings and dishes are necessary to feed guests. Call The Crossroads Eatery today to check out our catering services and large selection of party trays!

When it comes to Mother’s Day, we know it can sometimes be challenging to find that perfect gift. Let The Crossroads Eatery be your partner this upcoming holiday by hosting your surprise party with us or hiring us for catering services for mom’s next big event. Contact our friendly staff today!
