10 Easy Steps to the Perfect Mother's Day
10 Easy Steps to the Perfect Mother's Day

As Mother’s Day approaches each year a familiar question is often exchanged between mother and daughter and that is, ‘What would you like Mum?’. The answer however is nearly always, ‘To spend the day with you’.

Imagine her delight when you arrive in the morning only to whisk her away for a special Mother’s Day out to share between the two of you; she’ll be pinching herself when she finds out the exciting events you have planned!

Here at Capalaba Central we know just how extraordinary mums are, so we’ve done the planning for you to ensure that this Mother’s Day is one that she’ll remember and cherish forever.

1. Begin The Day With Brunch

Before venturing off to undertake some retail therapy with Mum, spoil her with a tasty brunch and warm, well-made coffee from one of our cosy cafés such as Café Two 14 or Muffin Break.

2. A Styling Session

There’s nothing quite like a trim and a blow wave to leave you glowing and feeling confident. Book in to one of our expert salons to leave Mum feeling glam before her day out.

3. A Retail Therapy Session

The change of season and this special occasion combined is the perfect time to refresh Mum’s wardrobe. You’ll find our various fashion retailers adorning the top Autumn Winter trends like animal print, mid-length skirts and London-inspired streetwear.

4. A Personalised Gift

Displaying a precious memory in a beautiful frame is a tried-and-true sentiment that Mum is bound to love. Before embarking on your day out, load a sentimental photo onto a USB and head into Big W to have it printed and framed. This is something she can keep on her desk at work or beside the bed to remind her how special she is to you.

5. Is It Lunch Time?

By this point in the day, the two of you will likely be a little peckish. Luckily, the Capalaba Central eatery has many options for a lunchtime pick-me-up such as local favourite The Vintage Apron, so you can continue spoiling Mum long into the afternoon.

6. Plan A Holiday

Extend your Mother’s Day spoiling out a few months by speaking to one of our travel experts at Capalaba Central Flight Centre about a trip you can both take together in future. Hello tropical paradise!

7. Something Sentimental

While spending the day with her is as good a gift as any, it’s always touching to gift Mum with a sentimental piece of jewellery she can proudly wear every day. Speak to the friendly team at Goldmark or Prouds The Jewellers to pick the perfect piece that she can treasure for years to come.

8. Engrave It

Now that you’ve given Mum a stunning piece of jewellery, why not make it that little more sentimental by having it engraved by Mister Minit with a quote you both love, or simply with the words, ‘I love you Mum’.

Charcuterie Board

9. Pick Up Some Market Produce To Create A Charcuterie Board

After a long day of shopping what better way to relax than with a charcuterie board, filled with the finest prosciutto and crusty bread. Drop by Capalaba Fresh Meat & Poultry and The Bread Corner and build a tasty board for Mum to enjoy when you return home.

10. Flowers

Conclude your mother-daughter outing at Capalaba Central with a fragrant bunch of her favourite blooms from Woolworths or Coles, a Mother’s Day staple that is sure to put a smile on her face.
