Here are some unusual ideas for Mother's Day this year
It will shortly be Mother's Day, and it is therefore time that we all book somewhere if we intend to take this very special person out for a meal!

There are many places you could go to, as well as other things you could do with your Mum, and this list is places and events.

1. MOTHER'S DAY HIGH TEA
This is a Mother's Day decadent High Tea which is an ideal way to spoil that special lady this Mother's Day!

It will be held at the Metro Bar & Bistro, at 33 Mounts Bay Rd, Perth.



You can have the savoury and sweet selection for $35 per person or add an espresso martini for $45 per person.

You can see the menu here, and for more information, contact Brooke on 0894851218. Book now as places are limited and this event sells out every year.

2. HEALTH RETREATS
Many Mums would enjoy a health retreat and/or spoiling themselves with massages and the like. These are a really good idea for this Mother's Day, and some of these include:

Eden Light Retreat in Roleystone


Forest Rise Retreat in Yelverton



Ripple Retreats in East Fremantle


Any of these would be a wonderful gift for this special day.

3. FREE - AT HOME MOTHER'S DAY DELIGHTS
If you do not want to, or cannot afford to take Mum out for lunch, then why not pamper her at home!

Firstly let her sleep in as long as she likes, making sure no one disturbs her. Make sure she has a very relaxing day with no housework by firstly cooking a lovely breakfast for her (and the rest of the family).

Run a bath with bubbles or essential oils and let Mum soak for an hour or so in the bath, or let her spend time alone with a friend over a cup of tea or coffee with no one else around.

Make sure that no one argues or squabbles on that day. Or why not let Mum lie on the bed quietly for an hour during the day with no interruptions, and read a book!

All these are great ideas if money is a problem and your Mum has little time to herself on normal days.

4. BUY MUM A HAMPER
If you are at a loss for what to buy for Mum, why not get her a hamper made up of some of her favourite foods.

There are many online companies who do this, however, I once made my own up by going to a supermarket, and buying only those things that I knew my Mum liked. Then buy a nice basket and make the hamper up yourself.

The other alternative for a hamper is a basket of soaps and body oils and lotions.

Most Mum's would appreciate this present put together with a great deal of thought.

5. CANDLELIGHT DINNER
You could make Mum a romantic candlelit dinner with her favourite wine, where you do all the work including the cooking, cleaning up, and clearing up.

Many mums cook every night, and I know I used to appreciate having a meal cooked for me occasionally - just make sure you do all the shopping also for this event.

6. FISH AND CHIPS AT THE BEACH
Mother's Day is cooler than summer and it is often a beautiful time of the year to have a fish and chips lunch or early dinner, on the beach.

At Scarborough Beach, you can get your fish and chips, and cross over the road and eat them in comfort with the family, or if you have dogs, you could drive to a dog beach after picking up your meal along the way. Many of us treat our dogs as "kids" so we like to include them in our arrangements with the family!

7. LUNCH AT A NURSERY
Many Perth nurseries now have very good cafes, and if your Mum is like me, she loves plants!

Let Mum be surrounded by plants, have a light lunch and buy her a plant or two of her choice.

A few of the places you could go would be:


Blue lotus Cafe in Karrinyup.

8. LUNCH FOR FREE AT THE PERTH MINT
The Perth Mint is offering free lunch to all Mothers this year, so this would be a charming place to go to with its vintage building and pleasant cafe. You can book here for this lunch, as well as find out more about this event.



9. BUFFET BREAKFAST ON COTTESLOE BEACH
Beautiful Cottesloe Beach is home to the Indiana - they are having a Mother's Day Buffet Breakfast or Share Style Set Menu Lunch at Indiana Cottesloe.

The views from the Indiana are stunning and they look over Cottesloe Beach and right out to Rottnest Island.



Make sure you book soon as this venue will sell out quickly, and you can make your bookings here.

10. MOTHER'S DAY BREAKFAST WITH KOALAS
Who can resist a cute koala! At The Maze, at 1635 Neaves Road, Bullsbrook, the family can have breakfast with the koalas again exclusively for Mother's Day, 13th May.

This is an unusual idea for Mum and you will get a delicious meal as well as meet some of Australia's cutest and cuddliest animal icons.



This will be a buffet style brekkie with two sittings and you can book here.

No matter what you end up doing with your Mum, make sure you tell her "I love you", as this can be the sweetest present of all!
