Give Mum the Gift of Elegance

Mother’s Day is here again and now that COVID restrictions have relaxed a little from last year, our mums can enjoy themselves a little more so let’s class it up and give our mums a beautiful elegant day they’ll never forget.

  1. Flowers

Flowers are always a given when it comes to elegance. Live, fresh ones of course! For extra class points, take mum’s colour scheme into consideration when purchasing the blooms. If in doubt, white is always a classy choice.

2. High Tea

Many restaurants, hotels and cafes offer high tea for Mother’s Day. The Hotel Windsor on Spring Street in Melbourne have been serving high tea since 1883 and offer a truly traditional experience. The Mansion Hotel at Werribee Park hosts High SocieTEA every Sunday afternoon amid absolutely beautiful surroundings.

You can also host your own high tea at home. Make sure to include finger sandwiches, pastries, canapes, scones with jam and cream and, of course, the tea! Pull out the best china, tablecloths, silverware and your fanciest tea pot and be sure to dress for the occasion.

3. Day Spa

Treat mum to a day of luxury at a spa. Massages, mud masks and manicures in a white fluffy robe is the perfectly elegant way to spend Mother’s Day. You can also host a spa day at home. Gift mum a soft monogrammed bathrobe and spend the day pampering her.

4. Picnic

Organise a picnic for mum this Mother’s Day and add some extra touches to make it extra classy. Plush blankets, big pillows and a gorgeous brolly turn an ordinary picnic into a classy affair. Pack some high tea-type treats into a wicker basket and you’re all set. If you’re picnic-challenged you can hire someone to take care of it all for you. If you live in Melbourne, The Picnic Sisters put together a really classy spread.

5. Chocolates

Ditch the supermarket chocolates and go for something a little more luxurious this Mother’s Day. There are many gourmet chocolatiers and if you can’t find any locally, you’re sure to find some online.

6. Champagne

Last but not least, don’t forget the champagne! Champagne will go perfectly with any of the suggestions above so pull out the Veuve Clicquot and have a great (and classy) Mother’s Day!
