Treat Mum to a Trentham Mother’s Day
On 26th March let’s thank our Mothers (and those matriarchs who act as our Mums) for all of their hard work, patience and love when raising us. Throughout our lives they’ve acted as a cook, cleaner, cheerleader and best friend, so it’s safe to say we wouldn’t be where we are today without Mum.
It’s time to show our Mums how much we love them with fabulous food, gorgeous gifts, cute cards and free garden fun at Trentham.
Yummy mummy meals
Sitting around the dinner table chatting to your family can be a very special time, so our restaurants have prepared Mother’s Day menus certain to make your day perfect.
Mummies will love being wined and dined at David’s Brasserie this Mother’s Day. Enjoy a two or three course Mother’s Day lunch from their Mother’s Day menu. Be sure to book a table soon to avoid disappointment - call 01782 657783.
If your Mum is the queen of roast dinners, treat her to a fabulous roast dinner at Joe’s Kitchen who’ll include a free glass of wine for mum. On the Sunday roast theme, you’ll find a mouth-watering carvery at Six Arches Restaurant or if ‘Mamma Mia’ fancies something with an Italian feel then head to Terrazzo del Giardino, both located within Trentham Garden Centre.
If your mum prefers to keep things savoury, there’s nowhere better for gourmet pies than Pieminster - or for all things sweet, head to Cadwaladers for ice cream sundae. For a vintage cuppa and heavenly cakes, head to Capabilitea who have the capability to earn you some extra brownie points.
Trentham Shopping Village is the perfect place to find something extra special this Mother’s Day. For Mums who love a good cuppa, head to Whittards who have created three mini caddies for their most quintessentially English teas, decorated with the original illustrations from Alice in Wonderland. Their English Rose blend of black tea and rose petals is fit for a Queen of Hearts, while the refreshing Earl Grey would make the Mad Hatter proud. And to top things off they’ve included the bestselling English Breakfast: just the thing for a tea party down the rabbit-hole. If your mum wants something a bit stronger she is sure to find a fantastic selection at the Whisky Shop or at Il Gusto who have a wonderful range of spirits including their Pink Gin, after all you may be the reason she drinks!
Trentham is also the perfect place to pick out a gift for mums who are foodies with wonderful local, artisan and ethical produce available at Brown and Green, satisfy those with a sweet tooth with retro favourites at Peggy Anne’s Sweet Emporium, or make your own hamper at The Cheese and Wine Emporium. If Mum is a big fan of Great British Bake Off then Cooks of Trentham are sure to have the perfect gift or maybe you could treat her to something baked with love by you?
For those fashionistas who like to keep up with the latest trends head to one of our fashion shops which have everything from the latest British brands like Barbour, Hunter and Joules, at Outdoor and Country, to dresses for all occasions at Roman Originals and Nicole’s, and not forgetting wonderful accessories such as scarves and handbags, which you’ll find at Jape.
From handcrafted perfume bottles at Silver Leaf Gallery gorgeous glassware and vases at Portmeirion and candles to suit all occasions at The Candle Shop. Pamper your #1 with scrumptious smellies from L’Occitane and Bath and Body or a pair of snuggly slippers from Moshulu. For a gift with a little sparkle, Cornerstone which is stocked with stunning jewels from around the globe certain to bring a tear to Mum’s eye. Whether your Mum’s old or young, a collector or not, there’s always room for just One More Bear - there’s plenty of Bears looking for a forever home, from soft and snuggly to firm and cuddly. New mums shouldn’t be forgotten too and there’s a range of gifts and essentials for Baby, available at Natures Purest.
Of course, once you’ve purchased the perfect gift you need a card to go with it. Hallmark Cards have an array of Mother’s Day cards, plus a chance to pick up some Thornton’s chocolates while you’re there. If you’re looking for a quirkier card then you’ll love the selection from Yellowstone Art Boutique, from lovely greetings such as ‘thanks for teaching me to become as awesome as I am’, to the much cheekier ‘Every day I become more like you, I’ll let decide if that’s a good or bad thing’.
The huge Trentham Garden Centre is packed to the rafters with goodies Mum will love - from candles to cookware, daffodils to dresses, books to brollies and a smashing selection of greetings cards. After you’re all shopped out, why not treat yourself to a cuppa and pastry at Caffe Bello.
