Mother's Day is the perfect occasion to show your appreciation for the incredible women in your life. This year, make the day extra special by planning a day full of delightful surprises and memorable moments. From breakfast in bed to a relaxing afternoon tea, here are eight fantastic activities to make her feel loved and cherished on Mother's Day.
Breakfast in Bed: Start her day with a delicious breakfast in bed. Prepare her favourite dishes, whether it's bacon and eggs, toast, cereal, or pastries, and serve it all on a beautifully decorated tray with a hot cup of tea or coffee. Don't forget to add some fresh flowers, and make sure to clean up the kitchen afterwards!
A Leisurely Stroll: Enjoy some quality time together with a walk around the neighbourhood, a visit to the local park, or a stroll along the beach. Grab a coffee to go and savour the fresh air and sunshine as you chat and bond.
Morning Tea Delight: Set the table for a delightful morning tea, complete with her favourite coffee or a pot of tea. Decorate with fresh flowers from the garden and serve a selection of pastries, croissants, or scones with jam and cream. Try the CWA Lemonade Scone Recipe for a classic treat.
A Relaxed Lunch: Prepare a leisurely lunch just for her, whether it's a roast with all the trimmings, a simple salad, or a scrumptious charcuterie board. Use a wooden cheese board or platter to artfully arrange a selection of delicious meats, cheeses, crackers, and accompaniments.
Elegant Afternoon Tea: Surprise her with an elegant afternoon tea featuring freshly made sandwiches or her favourite cake. Set a fancy table with fresh flowers, linen, and tableware, and chill a bottle of bubbles like G.H. Mumm Cordon Rouge Brut NV for an extra touch of luxury.
Drinks & Nibbles: Gather the family for a laid-back evening of drinks and nibbles. Enjoy a cheese platter and good conversation in your outdoor dining area if you have one. Serve a glass of bubbles or crisp white wine to perfectly complement the cheese and nibbles.
Candlelit Dinner: Treat her to a delicious home-cooked meal in a romantic setting. Dim the lights, light a candle, and set the table for an intimate dinner. Choose from easy-to-prepare meal options like Maya Kaimal Indian Simmer Sauces or Gourmet Italian One Pot Meals from Tiberino. Pair the meal with her favourite wine or champagne.
Decadent Dessert Platter: End the day on a high note with a lavish dessert platter. Select a variety of her favourite chocolates, sweets, nuts, and fruits, and arrange them on a wooden board or platter. Include popular treats like Double Coated Honeycomb from Melbourne Cocoa and Honey Popcorn from The Regimental Condiment Company, along with fresh fruits for a mouthwatering finale.
