Many of us couldn’t celebrate Mother’s Day how we wanted to last year, so we’d love to make it a day to remember this time around. Coming up on the 27th of March, you don’t have long to get your day planned.
Here are some suggestions for hints to give your children, or some ideas on how to treat your own Mum.
Starting off simple, you can’t go wrong with a bunch of flowers, any mother would be delighted to receive some. You can head to Lotty’s Flowers in the Market Place or D&G Florist in East Street – both shops have flowers for all price ranges, from charming springtime daffodils to big bouquets.
We can’t think of a better occasion than Mother’s Day to head into town for a spot of afternoon tea. We have plenty of tea rooms to pick from in Faversham such as: Cosgroves, Havishams, The Yard, The Secret Garden Café at Standard Quay, Creek Creative café, Upstairs Downstairs by Morrisons, the Café by the Creek at Oare and more.
Head to the Markets
The upcoming Mad March Market falls on Mother’s Day and will be a lovely place to celebrate along with friends and family. There will be live music from Labyrinth and The Hospice Band, entertainment from local stalls and Merryman The Jester, and several activities such as a ‘Spot The Hare Trail’ and a window display competition. We’ve heard there will also be a pony named Rupert at the market ready for meet and greets.
Alongside all of these lovely extras, there will also be plenty of opportunities to support local businesses by shopping at their weekend stalls. If you can’t make it on Sunday, it will also be on the Saturday from 9am until 3.30pm.
Don’t forget a card
Don’t forget a card! Presentimes, Barley Mow, No77, Forget Me Not, and more local shops are all full of a terrific selection of Mother’s Day cards. If you need wrapping paper these shops will also have you covered. You needn’t leave Faversham!
Picking the perfect gift
Shopping small is much more meaningful than shopping at big online retailers. You can often find one-of-a-kind gifts in Faversham that are much more special. Thankfully, Faversham is full of wonderful independent businesses. Take a look in Top Hat & Tales for accessories and artwork, No77 for interior pieces, soaps and jewellery, and Creek Creative for pieces from local artists and makers. The Best of Faversham Market is also on 19th and 26th of March, which is a great opportunity to meet the makers and see what they have to offer.
Treat Mum to a meal
We are lucky that Faversham is full of friendly pubs, cafes, and restaurants waiting to serve you and your family.
Does your mum love a glass of wine? Head to Vinos on Court Street or newly opened Baltic House Wine bar at Standard Quay – the perfect place to wind down and enjoy some delicious drinks. Next door is Papa Bianco which creates the best handmade pizzas, with monthly specials, desserts and more. If your mum would rather some nachos, head back to the Market Place to visit California Cravings for your fix of Mexican cuisine.
Of course, we have many great restaurants In Faversham many serving delicious Sunday lunches. Check out The Pheonix, The Quay, The Sun Inn, Ask Italian, and The Yard to name just a handful, who are all taking bookings for Mother’s Day.
We hope that this blog has given you some ideas on how to treat your mum this Mother’s Day, and that you have the best day surrounded by Family and Friend’s.
