It's time to celebrate your leading lady and food-focussed Tramsheds is a wonderful precinct to do just that. With some special treats being organised, you can shower your mother with love, lunch or dinner and a floral workshop.
Blume Flower School is collaborating with this former historic tram depot to bring some blooming good experiences for mothers. Join the creative space, surrounded by like-minded people, and enjoy some indulgence in one or more of the following:-
Mum is the Best Flower Crown (ready to wear) $65
