NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Premier gifting sites ProFlowers and Shari’s Berries are honoring mothers everywhere with the #AintMomGrand event at Grand Central Terminal, Vanderbilt Hall. The two-day event, held from Tuesday, May 6 to Wednesday, May 7, will feature a stunning floral wall and a decadent chocolate wall as a celebration of moms leading up to Mother’s Day.
Vanderbilt Hall will be transformed into a beautiful lounge space featuring the two large walls that represent two of mom’s favorite gifts – flowers and chocolates. One wall is adorned with over 15,000 roses and fuji mums, inspired by a Mother’s Day favorite from ProFlowers, the All the Frills bouquet. The other wall is covered in over 600 pounds of chocolate chips and sprinkles, inspired by the toppings on the Shari’s Berries Mother’s Day Strawberries. Standing at 16 feet high by 32 feet wide, the walls will serve as a memorable backdrop for pictures. Anyone can stop by Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Terminal to take their picture against these grand walls with a sign dedicated to their moms. They can then share the picture on social media using the hashtag #AintMomGrand, and send it to their mom as a token of appreciation for all that she is.
Visitors to the event will be able to indulge in decadent, gourmet dipped strawberries from Shari’s Berries during lunch time and evening rush hours, 11am – 1pm and 5pm – 6pm, and take away a fresh, colorful rose from ProFlowers throughout event hours.
“At ProFlowers, we have been honoring moms for 15 years, and we really know how to inspire her. This year, we want to celebrate moms with this event at Grand Central Terminal. The stunning wall is dedicated to moms everywhere who do so much for their children every day,” said ProFlowers General Manager, Vice President Bill Patterson.
Flowers and sweets are traditionally one of the most popular gifts for Mother’s Day. According to the National Retail Federation Mother’s Day survey, two-thirds of those celebrating Mother’s Day this year will buy mom flowers. Shari’s Berries will dip more than 6 million strawberries for Mother’s Day alone.
“This large, decadent chocolate chip wall is an indulgent way to make a grand statement of appreciation to all the moms out there. We hope the experience at our #AintMomGrand event brings a moment of happiness to everyone involved, from the person taking a picture against the wall to her mom who receives it,” said Shari’s Berries General Manager, Vice President Laura Szeliga.
The #AintMomGrand event is open to the public. Visitors can stop by Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Terminal on Tuesday, May 6 from 10:30am – 6:30 pm and Wednesday, May 7 from 7:00am – 7:00pm. For more information, visit www.aintmomgrand.com.
