6 Ways to Spoil Your Mum This Mother's Day
She’s not a regular mum, she’s a cool mum
She did squeeze you out, it’s time to repay the favour.
Go wine tasting in the hills
Name a better way to bond with Mum than to get her shit face wasted, while stuffing your face with a cheese board? We can’t think of any. Pre-book a spot on a Des’s mini van to make sure that nobody has to be deso. And viola, you are officially Mum’s favourite. Longview Vineyard are having a Mother’s Day 3-course lunch in their Rustic Barn for $68 per person. Every guest gets a Wagtail Sparkling Pinot Chardonnay on arrival.
Do a workshop at the Bowerbird Markets
If you haven’t taken Mum to the Bowerbird Market’s before, then you are officially the worst child in Adelaide. Each season we see over 200 stalls held by local and interstate creatives, artisan-made food, craft beverages, gin tastings, activations, and most importantly - creative workshops. Prohibition Liquor Co will be hosting gin blending and gin cocktail masterclasses, and the Adelaide Central School of Art will be running drawing classes. ELC Studio will be hosting resin jewellery-making workshops, meanwhile Melbourne-based Wunder Weave’s Rachel Wood will be hosting a woven wool hanging class.
Go watch a fashion show together in support of Little Heroes Foundation
Our favourite day of the year is coming up again, the Little Heroes Mother’s Day Luncheon on the Friday 10th May. Enjoy a 2-course lunch with Paracombe Wines and Dessert Buffet. The show will be presenting the newest looks by Georgy Collection and Harvey the Label, worn by AZALEA Models. Special guest appearances from Rebecca Morse, Anna Meares and Rhonda Burchmore.
Profits from the event go directly to the Little Heroes Foundation, to support seriously ill-children.
Try a new restaurant bar
We cannot scroll through our newsfeeds without seeing people uploading boomerangs or selfies at the new Mia Margarita, or the newly refurbished Feather’s Pavilion. Try a cuisine vusion that you’ve never tried before like Mexican/Chinese at The Mexican Society in Chinatown, or French/Vietnamese at Cliche in North Adelaide. Even better yet, is the hidden bar that is Maybe Mae. You will only find it if you know to push the wall downstairs below Bread and Bone. Maybe take your mother-in-law to that one.
Watch some live music
Lucky us, having such a cool live music gig like Porch Sessions. This month we’ll see a secret line up perform in a backyard in Oakbank. Pack ya jammies and thermals because it will be a cold one.
Go for a hike and have a picnic
If you haven’t hiked up Mount Lofty, followed by brunch in the restaurant on the summit then you aren’t a true South Australian. Your mum probably does it once a month with her yoga friends, so maybe switch it up a little and go alfresco. Go off-trail closer to the top of the summit with a picnic rug and basket full of home made snacks. She’ll be pretty proud of your home-making skills for sure.
