On the hunt for creative ways to celebrate Mother’s Day at home? Discover our favourite ways to spoil mum this weekend.
This year, we’re all doing things a little differently. Instead of heading out to restaurants, bars and cafes to treat mum, we’re staying in and finding new opportunities to show just how much we care. If you’re looking for some inspiration for what to do this Mother’s Day, check out our guide to the best ways to spoil mum at home this Mother’s Day.
This Mother’s Day, let someone else do the cooking. The Sam Prince Hospitality Group (the team behind the CBD’s top restaurants such as INDU, Kid Kyoto and Méjico) have curated a lavish Mother’s Day takeaway menu, giving Sydneysiders the perfect chance to dine at-home with their mum. This 6-course feast box comes packed with watermelon sashimi, half roast chicken, honey and miso-glazed roast pumpkin, crispy roast potatoes, cos lettuce salad and baked chocolate with fresh fruit and cream for dessert.
Want to make mum’s day extra special? Why not add on a bunch of flowers from Sydney-based florist Settle Petal or purchase a copy of Palmera’s cookbook “Handmade” (helping to support women in Sri Lanka). To order, simply head to SPHG’s Mother’s Day booking page for delivery ($15) on Sat May 9th and Sun May 10th. Find out more and order now here.
Want to treat your mum to a gourmet breakfast in bed with a side of bubbles? Perhaps a lavish seafood feast will be the perfect dining experience? Or, why not order both? For those looking to pamper mum from afar, look no further than Alexandria’s No.5 Restaurant. The team has lovingly curated two delicious Mother’s Day packages (designed to cater for two), both available for free delivery around Sydney’s Inner West.
Start her day with No. 5’s Breakfast In Bed Package ($60), featuring house-made muesli, spanner crab omelet with salsa verde, and a bottle of bubbles (plus a beautiful hand cream for an extra special touch). Plus, No.5’s Seafood Lunch Package ($80) includes a flavourful smoked trout salad, baked whole fish and a special Mother’s Day dessert to finish (as well as a luxurious body wash for mum to enjoy). Plus, you can add a bottle of wine to the lunch package for an additional $20.
And for those really wanting to spoil mum, order both for $120. To secure your Mother’s Day feast from No.5 Restaurant, place your order online by 4pm Thursday, May 4th for delivery on Sunday, May 10. Find out more here.
