Unfortunately, it looks like a second Mother’s Day on lockdown! But fear not we have some brilliant ideas on how to celebrate at home!
I haven’t found a Mum who doesn’t love an Afternoon Tea! There are so many lovely places to order Afternoon Tea from locally! Check out our local delivery pages for more options. But nothing beats a home made afternoon tea does it? So we’ve complied a list of our favourite bakes to create the Ultimate Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea Party.
I know we’re not quite out of lockdown yet, but we aren’t far, so why not consider gift vouchers this Mother’s Day? It’s a brilliant way to support local businesses and also gives them something to look forward to. We’re so lucky to have some of the best Spas on our doorstep! I don’t know any Mother that wouldn’t enjoy a few hours to themselves getting pampering – especially after this last year! Find full details of local health and beauty spas here.
Now if there is one day I don’t want to be cooking for the family it’s got to be Mother’s Day! A with local restaurants still closed why not order a take away! So many of Harrogate’s favourite restaurants have offered take away services throughout lockdown. A lovely treat – restaurant quality food served in the comfort of your own home! Some places even have cook at home options too! Just make sure you don’t leave the washing up for Mum – its her day off remember!
We’ve got some beautiful downloadable Mother’s Day cards for little ones to colour in courtesy of one of our own lovely Mum’s Copperhill Studio, you find them all here.

1. Pre-order your flowers
Brexit, Mothers Day and Ladies Day means that demand for flowers is really high. If you pre-order with us now, we can not only make sure you get exactly what you’d like, but that you also don’t end up rushing to the supermarket for a last minute bunch of chrysanthemums! Here’s an example of our “terrific trug” you can order online.
2. Get your delivery booked in
Valentines day was incredibly busy this year, and it was all contactless deliveries! We deliver to Knaresborough, Harrogate, Boroughbridge and Wetherby but only have limited spaces over Mother’s Day weekend, so make sure you reserve yours now – just like booking the xmas eve online shop…
3. Get creative
