Mother’s Day is coming up fast (12 May, ladies), and while we think the kids and their dads have got it sussed out when it comes to where we want to go for a fancy feast, it never hurts to give them a little nudge in the right direction. And since we like to eat delicious food that’s not cooked by ourselves, here are the Mother’s Day brunches, buffets and high teas that we would LOVE to be treated to. We’re also good with a lovely lie in, are well on board with a bunch of beautiful blooms and are rather partial to homemade macaroni necklaces that we can wear for the occasion. Just sayin’.
And don’t forget to check back regularly, as we’ll be updating this guide whenever we hear news of other fancy feasts that we want in on!
