3 Things Your Mum Actually Wants This Mother’s Day

3 Things Your Mum Actually Wants This Mother’s Day

For something a little more exciting than a bunch of peonies.

By Siobhan Taylor | 12th April 2018

We think it goes without saying that Mother’s Day is more than just a Hallmark holiday – it’s an opportunity to spend quality time with the woman who turned a blind eye when you were a bit of a ratbag and who taught you the manners you rely on every day of your life.

With the special day quickly approaching, we thought we would take the opportunity to showcase three Mother’s Day events perfect for celebrating your #1 supporter. Whether you treat her to all of them or pick and choose depending on her tastes, we guarantee she’ll feel pampered.

Breakfast Of Champions

Start the celebrations off right by treating her to the ultimate Mother’s Day breakfast. If you’re not much of a performer in the kitchen, you’ll want to let the experts take care of it. Treasury Brisbane’s Mother’s Day Family Breakfast is the brekky dreams are made of, with all your favourites on offer. Choose from fluffy pancakes with cream and berries, perfectly crisped bacon, fresh juice stations and eggs served whichever way tickles your fancy. Taking place in their stunning sunlit courtyard with face painting, boat racing and craft tables available for the young (and young at heart), this is the only way to say thank you for all those breakfasts she made sure you ate when you were growing up. Add a couple of Mimosas to the mix and she’ll forget all about the time you broke her favourite vase.

A Garden Affair

If you’re struggling to decipher what it is she really wants this Mother’s Day, we’ll make it clear for you: Champagne. Every mother wants to be treated like a queen and to have all of her desires indulged for an afternoon. At Treasury Brisbane’s Veuve Clicquot Garden Party, she’ll be able to enjoy a Parisian-style high tea that, as we all know, is the trend du jour on Mother’s Day. For two hours, you can indulge in a Veuve Clicquot Champagne package while enjoying the finest selection of sweet and savoury French delicacies this side of the Seine. With traditional and fruit scones, petite quiches and frittatas, ham and avocado croissants, choux swans, hand rolled truffles, and so much more, this is the ultimate celebration for Francophiles and mothers alike.


Come Dine With Me

For a lot of us, we were largely dependant on our mothers for food from when we born up until we turned 18 (or perhaps even longer in some cases). This Mother’s Day, return the favour by treating her to a decadent three-course dinner complete with a glass of Moët & Chandon on arrival. While you could prepare her a meal yourself, we’re sure you’d both prefer to dine at The Lab Restaurant and Bar, Treasury Brisbane's award-winning restaurant. Their three-course Mother’s Day Dinner has been carefully designed to cater to every taste, with diners able to choose their choice of dish from each of the course menus. The menus include the likes of scallops with lemon myrtle and pear gel, mushroom ravioli with eggplant ragu, juicy eye fillet with sweet potato crisp and vine tomatoes, vanilla panna cotta with lemon sorbet and raspberry meringue, and a cheese platter with a selection of cheeses, fruit, nuts and crisp breads. Sound delicious? Of course it does, so make sure you reserve her a seat so that you don’t miss out on a table!
