Celebrating Mums This Mother’s Day

At salt&pepper we know a thing or two about family. 

We began as a family business and we remain one to this very day. We know just how important your mum’s homemade lunch is, or your grandma’s secret pasta sauce recipe. From taking care of scraped knees to sharing the perfect advice, mums do a lot for us. 

This Mother’s Day, we want to recognise all the exceptional women that enrich our lives and show how much we love them. Create a day filled with fun memories and thoughtful gifts this year. 

We’ve rounded up the best ways you can celebrate the women in your life without even leaving the house. 

Breakfast in Bed 

There’s nothing that says ‘mum we love you’ quite like breakfast in bed. 

It’s time to set the alarm for half an hour earlier and turn the coffee machine to warm. Turn up the music and get that bacon sizzling! If you want to make someone feel extra appreciated, make them a big breakfast just the way they like it. Not a bacon and eggs fan? Get that cereal bowl out and make some delicious muesli or porridge. (Don’t forget the berries and honey!) 

For extra brownie points, serve it up on a breakfast tray and dig out their favourite coffee mug or cup and saucer set!

Afternoon High Tea 

Time to get the cake tins and baking trays out and whip up some of your mum’s favourites! We are hungry thinking about it... muffins, biscuits, mini sandwiches – delish!


No matter what nibbles you decide to prepare (or let’s be honest – buy!), make your table look amazing and create a setting that will leave mum speechless. Think matching platters, coffee cups , tea pots and tea cups. Add some extra height and showcase your culinary creations with a footed cake stand.

Did someone say mimosas? Don’t forget the champagne glasses and coupes!

Have an At-Home Spa Day 

Why not treat yourself this Mother’s Day? You deserve it! There’s no need to leave the house to indulge. You have everything you need right at home for a relaxing spa day. 

The first thing you need to set the relaxation vibes is the right home fragrance. Diffusers or candles really help create a spa ambience. Break out that bath bomb you’ve been saving for a special occasion and fill the tub up all the way to the top. 

Just make sure you lock the door to keep any pesky visitors from bothering you — you deserve some rest and relaxation too!

Cook Up a Storm 

Break out your cookware and cook up a storm to show Mum just how much you appreciate her. Maybe a delicious risotto or creamy lemon salmon? Yum! 

If cooking is so not your thing, you can still make takeout feel extra special if you set the table like a pro. Get out your best dinnerware set, dust off your shiniest glassware, polish your cutlery and invite the rest of the family over.

However you celebrate, make Mother’s Day a time to relax and reflect with the people you care about the most. 

Last Minute Gifting Ideas

Show mum how much you love her with a thoughtful gift.

Is your mum a green thumb? A vase or planter would make the perfect prezzie. For a house proud mum we reckon you can’t go wrong with home fragrance. Have you got a fancy mum? Maybe a high tea set with a cake stand? And if your mum says she doesn’t want anything at all (they often do!) then go for a personalised letter mug — it’s a little something that’s just for her.
