How to host the perfect Mother’s Day lunch

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to spoil your mum. We think mums should be celebrated every day, but to make this Mother’s Day extra special, here are our top tips on how to host a Mother’s Day lunch she is sure to adore!



Who doesn’t love receiving a special bouquet of flowers? You don’t have to splash out and buy a fancy bunch; try jazzing them up with a tasteful vase or coloured ribbon and using them as a centre piece for the table. This creates an elegant atmosphere for your lunch and makes a lovely gift for your mum after the meal!

Homemade buffet

What better way to treat your mum than putting on a homemade spread? Instead of cooking a sit down three-course meal, you could pick a theme and create a buffet-style meal. High tea is always a popular choice; you could make delicate mini-sandwiches, fruit scones and cupcakes served on tiered cake stand for a deliciously decadent afternoon.

Welcome all generations

Mother’s Day doesn’t have to just be a one-on-one lunch with your mum. Why not invite the different generations in your family along and celebrate together in style? Appreciating grandmothers, aunties, sisters and loved ones on Mother’s Day will create special memories for everyone.

 Dig out the family photos

To make this lunch extra special, why not dig out the old family photos? Reminiscing about childhood memories with your mum is a special moment, as you will look back at all you have shared. You could even create a scrapbook or posters for the day for an extra special touch!

Surprise Mum with a luxury hamper 

After lunch, surprise your mum with the gift of a Spicers of Hythe luxury hamper. We have an exclusive range of special Mother’s Day hampers which you can browse here. From a hamper filled with treats for afternoon tea, to a Chocolicious hamper filled with, you guessed it, chocolate goodies, there’s a gorgeous gift to suit every taste and budget.
