Making Your Mother’s Day – Part 1: Days Out

This year, Mother’s Day falls on Sunday 30th March, giving you two weeks to find the perfect way to mark the occasion. While some people may see it as an excuse to sell yet more cards and trinkets, we are all for showing appreciation of mothers. Whether you prefer to keep it simple or to push the boat out, it’s nice to be nice and here’s how to do it this Mother’s Day.

As always, this is only a small selection of what’s available – if you would like more suggestions or more specific help, just get in touch.

London Experiences for Mother’s Day

Vogue Festival 2014

If your mum is a fashionista, you can’t go wrong with a couple of tickets for Vogue Festival 2014. Running in the Southbank Centre on 29th and 30th March, the festival is a showcase of the best of Vogue and Harrods, including a talk on “Personal Style And Do You Have It” by Alexa Chung, Amanda Harlech and Lucinda Chambers, the stories of Manolo Blahnik, Tory Burch and Angela Missoni and a behind-the-scenes look into what it’s like to be a model. Tickets are available for both days.

Afternoon Tea at the Athenaeum

Afternoon Tea always feels like a fantastic treat, particularly when it is as excellent as that you’ll receive at the Athenaeum. The Evergreen Afternoon Tea menu includes a selection of finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones and delicious homemade pastries and cakes. For an extra touch of decadence, you can also add some champagne or a cocktail. The Athenaeum does tend to book up very quickly, so you’ll need to be quick to bag this particular Mother’s Day treat.

Kew Gardens

There’s plenty going on at the botanical gardens in Kew this spring. On Saturdays, visitors can enjoy a guided tour and talk on the plans for the Temperate House, the fabulous Magnolias: Paintings by Barbara Oozeerally is on at the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art until August and the volunteers working at Kew will be leading guests on a tour of the spring buds and blossoms each day.  Even if none of the events are quite your mum’s cup of tea, a stroll around the gardens and a spot of lunch in the café is sure to go down a treat.
