FOR DINNER: HEAD TO PETERSHAM NURSERIES
If you’re taking the special lady in your life to dinner or being treated to a lovely meal, then Petersham Nurseries is the perfect place. Decorated with beautiful fresh flowers, this restaurant also incorporates them into dishes. You’ll not only have the décor to tantalise the senses but also the food. Make the day extra special by gifting or wearing a staple accessory to fit the venue such as the Bethnal in Cream Croc.
Tip: Head to the Richmond branch if the weather is set to be sunny, as they have an open-air seating area. Covent Garden may be better if it’s looking a little unpredictable - there is also a beautiful florist shop close by to browse different buds and buy mum a bespoke bouquet.
TO TREAT HER: BOOK THE HOUSE OF ELEMIS
Make this Mother’s Day the best one yet by letting mum have the ultimate pamper session. The House of Elemis in Mayfair is central and the perfect wind-down after a stroll down Oxford Street beforehand. The Harriet is ideal to fit all of her essentials for either a 30-minute mani (£36) or a 60-minute deep tissue massage (£95). There’s also time to browse and get first-hand access to their products and tips on how to use them.
TO DO: VISIT THE ORCHIDS FESTIVAL AT KEW GARDENS
If your mother is a lover of flowers and beautiful scenery, then the Orchids Festival at Kew is the perfect exhibition to take her to. The stunning array of colourful buds in the botanical garden’s greenhouse is in celebration of twenty-four years of Columbian plant life. Gift her with the Anouk in Linear Leaf to wear to the event in support of her love of florals.
FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT: SCIENCE AFTERNOON TEA AT AMPERSAND HOTEL
If you and mum fancy chemical gas with your tea and Jupiter scones then book afternoon tea at Ampersand hotel. For foodies who like to have fun, you can enjoy planet mousse, dinosaur biscuits and chocolate spacemen for (£39.50pp) or (£49.50pp) with a glass of champagne. The Mia crossbody in Weave Mix is just as striking as the food and acts as the ideal everyday gift for mum.
