Mother's Day ideas #4: High-tea it up!
High-tea is basically the ultimate high-end Mother’s Day idea, and your mum is bound to love those dainty mini sandwiches, scones, pastries and cakes. The unlimited refills of tea and coffee won’t hurt either! Though, we wouldn’t blame you if you took her to a grownup’s high-tea with delish cocktails either. Make it extra special and choose a high-tea at a fancy hotel with crisp white linens on the table, silver cutlery and beautiful vintage china cups ‘n saucers. Just imagine the smile on your mum’s face when you’re sitting in your comfy seat and a beautiful silver cake stand laden with the most delicious treats is brought to your table. If a fancy hotel isn’t quite within your price range, give a homemade high-tea a go! Style your at home table with nice table linens, add some on-trend coloured glass candle holders filled with twisted candles and pretty flowers, and head to the charity shop for vintage china to really bring home that traditional British high-tea vibe (trust us, even the Queen would be excited about this one, and there’s no better way to honour the queen of your life than with something the REAL Queen would appreciate.) Next step is to get your oven gloves, because it’s time to cook! If there’s an inner chef waiting to come out, now's your chance to really show off, but don’t despair if you’re more of a danger than a chef in the kitchen. Head to the shops and you’re bound to find some delicious treats, after all, it’s the thought that counts, and your mum is sure to love the thought that went into this Mother’s Day idea.
Mother's Day ideas #5: Get creative with your mum
If you and your mum love getting your hands dirty & getting creative, why not take her to a fun class just the two of you! We love the idea of a flower arranging class, or why not give a painting or pottery class a go?! We’re sure your mum would love such an original Mother’s Day idea, and spending time with you is probably her favourite thing to do anyway. Plus, an added perk to doing one of these creative classes together is that you’ll be able to take home whatever you’ve created and continue to enjoy the day long after Mother’s Day has finished. It’s time to make some new memories with your mum, so have some fun & learn a new skill together! Ps: you might just end up discovering a new hobby at the same time.
