For most of us, Mother’s Day is going to look a little different this year.
There will be no big family lunches, taking mum to the footy or heading out for a fancy high tea.
But that doesn’t mean you still can’t treat that special person in your life.
We’re putting together a list of innovative ways Moonee Valley businesses are helping you celebrate Mother’s Day this year.
Mother’s Day high tea at home
You might not be able to head out for those delish scones and finger sandwiches this year, but Moonee Ponds’ Gourmet Kitchen have got your Mother’s Day high tea cravings sorted – all from the comfort of your own home.
Check out their range of sweet and savoury boxes which you can have delivered to your door.
