Parisian garden party, ballet or a really high tea?
Here, at WeekendNotes, we've already told you about Brisbane's Best Mother's Day Breakfasts, Brunches and Buffets, as well as Quirky Mother's Day Events, for mums who might appreciate something a little different. But now it's time for my particular favourite - high teas. There's something about the elegance and simplicity of high tea that just screams Mother's Day, and Brisbane has many fine options for your mum this year.

The high teas on the list below still have bookings available at the time of writing, but get in quickly, they're bound to be popular.

Sofitel's Mother's Day high tea is a bit of a Brisbane legend. As a sponsor of Queensland Ballet, Sofitel presents a performance by Queensland Ballet as an accompaniment to the excellent food and sparkling wine.

And if your mum loves the ballet she can also meet and greet the dancers for a photo opportunity after their performance (additional fee of $25 and limited tickets).
