Have a special high tea in Perth for Mother's Day this year
While mums should be appreciated all year round, Mother's Day is the ideal time to pay homage to your mum, celebrate being a mum yourself or simply enjoy a day with the special ladies in your life. This year, Mother's Day falls on Sunday, 13 May and what better way to spend time with your mum or children than with a special high tea? But we're not talking about any old high tea - here are the top Mother's Day High Teas in Perth for 2018.

Rochelle Adonis has long been considered the gold standard of high teas in Perth. Renowned for its exquisite dining experience and simply divine choice of savouries and sweets, this boutique eatery offers handmade cakes and confectionary, alongside a seasonal menu, all set in the leafy courtyard or stunning dining room.

Sessions are between 2:30pm and 5:30pm. There is also a children's afternoon tea for kids under 12 years at a cost of $35.
