High Tea at The Lab

Mother’s Day ideas: How to spoil mum in Brisbane

At a loss for where to take mum this Mother’s Day, or how to spoil her like she truly deserves? Make this Mother’s Day one to remember with an experience picked just for her.  

Mums, oh how we love them. Show just how much this Mother’s Day (or any day really) by treating an amazing woman in your life to something special. No matter what makes her happy, we have the perfect experience ready.

For social mums

Does your mum deserve a day out with her besties? Gift her a social session with a bit of class at high tea at The Lab. The historic Treasury makes the perfect setting for a classic high tea, created by chef Steven Jones (who honed his skills at the likes of the Savoy Hotel and The Dorchester in London). She can share finger sandwiches, delicate macaroons, oven-fresh scones and more over good conversation with old friends and bottomless cups of La Maison Du Thé French tea. You might like to upgrade mum to the two-hour Chandon wine package for a little extra sparkle, too.

For hopeless romantics

Is your mum the type to get a little misty eyed over a favourite rom com? Treat her and a significant other to a romantic stay in Treasury Brisbane’s refined suites. The wonders of a sleep in can never be underestimated, especially not under the vaulted ceilings of the Hotel Suites with their Brisbane city views from the private balconies. Even better, a massage is only a phone call away and breakfast in bed can be summoned at any time of day (or night) with 24/7 room service. Midnight pancakes anyone?

For fashionable mummas

The Treasury Brisbane sits pretty at the heart of the Brisbane CBD, which for stylish mums means just one thing – shopping. Some of Brisbane’s best shopping precincts, boutiques and department stores are just a short stroll away, perfect for an all-day retail marathon (and an easy trek back to her room with all those bags). One of the city’s most fashionable quarters, Edward Street, is a mere five-minutes’ walk from Treasury and offers an exclusive personal shopping service. Book a one-on-one session or invite up to nine of her fellow fashionistas for a VIP small-group shopping tour.

For foodie mums

If your mum is a born feeder, nothing says “I love you too” like returning the favour with a decadent meal. Book a date in with you and mum at the chic heritage-listed surrounds of Black Hide by Gambaro, which elevates surf and turf to the heights of fine dining. From the kitchen, chef Tom Mumford serves up some of Australia’s finest steaks cooked to perfection, along with premium seafood including lobster, fresh oysters, Moreton Bay bugs and Hervey Bay Scallops. Pair it with a matched drop from the extensive wine list and finish it with a burnt Basque cheesecake for one happy mumma.

Let mum do it all with our Autumn staycation packages, available just in time for Mother’s Day.
