Reader Treats Just For You!

Mother’s Day treats

Show your mum some serious lurrve and treat her to something special from personalised pink gin bottles to special spa days and more.

AFTERNOON TEA

Who doesn’t love a good cup of tea and cake and Mother’s Day is the perfect day to treat yourself and your ma! Wymondham Windmill Tearooms, have got a vintage one on Sun 31 March where you can enjoy views of the historic windmill while you sipping your tea. When you’re done, work off those extra calories by climbing the stairs to the top of the windmill while the mudlets run around in the playground and there’s even a woodland puzzle trail in their two-acre woodland below.

Meanwhile, Claire from Kavanagh’s Tearoom will ensure her goodies spoil your mum rotten over the weekend. Expect delicate finger sandwiches, fresh plain and fruit scones, lemon meringue pies, choc eclairs, with mini cheesecake and handmade delicious indulgent truffle.

Mums get in free to Barnsdale Gardens on Sunday when accompanied by children. They’ll get the chance to see hundreds of colourful spring blooms carpeting the borders and hear beautiful birdsong before settling in for dainty sandwiches, savoury and sweet bites and more.

The Loquacious Kitchen, over at the Cross Keys, Burbage is hosting a divine tea accompanied with a glass of Prosecco and a cup of coffee or tea.

TREATS

Nest Gifts is giving all Muddy readers 15% off anything purchased from their website. They’ve got gorgeous jewellery which can be personalised, beautiful bags and must-have home and decor accessories. Treat your mum and perhaps gift yourself something while you’re at it. Simply enter MUDDY15 at checkout between 4-25 March.

If a special spa day is what you’re after, book a pampering one at Sophie Élise Beauty Boutique throughout March. The day will include a mocktail on arrival, a relaxation combo treatment consisting of a back and scalp massage, cream tea with homemade scones, jam, clotted cream and a selection of sandwiches, full private access of day spa facilities (sauna, refreshments, robe, slippers) and a DIY ‘Salt Glow’ body scrub. £49.50 per person for 2-5 people. Ohh la la sign me up!

Meanwhile, if the sound of soaking in a luxuriously scented bath sounds bliss then Organic Ritual Beauty are offering a relaxing rose silk bath for mums between Tues 26 March – Sun 30 March. Mums will receive a glass of bubbles and chocolate cake, to indulge in and they can follow up with a massage or facial treatment. The rose milk bath is £26 or £20 when booked with another treatment.

Book a Mummy and Me Photoshoot by Jess Iliffe, and you can enjoy a 30 minute session with up to two siblings for only £40. The offer includes one free 8×10 print of your choice and all  digital images will be half price. Offer valid from Monday 4 March.

We all know Gin is better than flowers – right? Get your hands on a personalised bottle of pink gin from Burleighs London Gin! Order now by emailing info@45ginschool.com

EVENTS

Reserve a table for a special lunch in the Orangery Restaurant Kilworth House Hotel and enjoy a three course lunch, coffee and petit fours on Sun 31 March.

Take part in a special Mother’s Day pottery painting workshop at Lollipops, and enjoy a guided 2 hour session including all tools to create either a tea for one set or a two tier cake stand.

The brilliant Falcon Hotel, Uppingham, will have a little treat ready for mums during their Sunday lunch. The menu includes homemade soup, treacle cured smoked salmon, Moroccan spiced carrot and halloumi fritters and more. Food served between 12 noon – 3 pm.

If your mum’s a sucker for a good scent, book her into an Essential Oil Workshop at The Exchange on Thur 14 Mar. Join Essentially Lucy Rossa for an evening learning how to effectively use dōTERRA essential oils. Mums will also get the chance to make their own personalised rollerball which they can take home at the end of the evening as a gift to start your essential oil journey. £10 per person and if you bring your mum (or daughter – over 16’s only) it’s just £15 for both of you. Buy tickets here. 7.30 – 9.30pm

Lastly, I love these tasty cupcake bouquets from Iced by Tracey. They’re are made from individual cupcakes made to your choice of flavour and all hand piped, arranged and wrapped to look like a real flowers bouquet. Grab them at Highcross Shopping Centre from 13-17 and 20 – 24 March or order directly from the maker herself. Bouquets start from £30.

I hope I’ve given you a few ideas on how to spoil your mum on Mother’s Day and remember to mention Muddy Stilettos when making any bookings. Enjoy x
