Ooh, it’s here again – aren’t you glad we’ve reminded you? This year Mother’s Day falls on May 13, and while a card and flowers are always a predictable favourite, why not make mum’s day really special with one of Belle Property’s Mothers Day experiences.
The Rocks Mother’s Day Markets
Spend a day strolling the picturesque harbour while trawling the market scene for unique vintage finds and homemade soaps and cosmetics. Surprise her by buying a little treat she fancies when she’s not looking. There’s even a chance to win your mum one of three Mother’s Day hampers filled with more than $600 worth of goodies each. Entry forms are available from all participating stallholders at The Rocks Markets from Saturday May 5th until Sunday May 13th. For full terms and conditions visit www.therocks.com.
Give your mum an experience to remember this Mothers Day with a voucher to spend a day together learning the tricks and tips of the trade in Italian cuisine. Author and chef Luciana Sampogna from the Simili Sisters’ school in Bologna will be your tutor for the day. Go on a culinary journey through Italy, starting lessons in making Antipasto from Toscano, Tortelli di Zucca (classical tortelli pasta filled with pumpkin) from Emilia Romagna and a variation of classic Italian sweets and breads. The classes run for 4 hours and are held in an historic heritage-listed Italian villa in Annandale, Sydney.
Classes are $130 per person and more information can be found via http://www.redballoon.com.au.
Blue Mountains iKOU Pod Therapy® and facial
‘Rest, relax and restore’ are the main concepts behind Blue Mountain’s iKou Spa. If that sounds like the kind of thing that might make your mother’s day then don’t hesitate in booking her an appointment at this exclusive facility. The iKou Spa takes on the ethos that no two clients are the same, customizing treatments to suit the individual’s needs. We suggest treating her to the 20-minute iKou Pod Therapy session ($35) before she receives the luxe 90-minute ‘Ultra Performance Botanical Facial’ ($190).

Adriano Zumbo High Tea
A meeting with the pocket rocket macaroon king Adriano Zumbo would be enough to make most mothers swoon, so you can imagine how delighted she would be if you treated her to a seat at his Mother’s Day High Tea event at the Brisbane Marriott Hotel this year. The tickets include a glass of sparkling wine on arrival, a decadent high tea menu, and a demonstration and meet and greet with Adriano. Funds raised from the event will be contributed to help improve the lives of Himalayan children, individuals and families living in Nepal. To put the cherry on the cake your mother will also receive special gift from the charming patissier. It’s an event sure to make her smile!
Annie the Musical
If your mother is a lover of show tunes then a day at the theatre will surely hold the key to her heart. Annie the Musical is showing at Queensland Performing Arts Centre and the finale show for the season will be held on May 13. Sing along to the classic favourite “Tomorrow” with your mum and she’ll be sure to remember the experience for many years after.
