High Tea For Two Please

You are here, you are there so before your calendar gets filled up (again), Ms. Social Butterfly, make sure you book Mommy Dearest in for some quality mother-daughter time. So get out those white gloves and treat her to a High Tea experience at one of our favourite venues from the HUG Tea Tour.

A Day at the Spa

Nothing says “I appreciate everything you had to put up with while I was growing up” like a pampering spa treatment. Spoil Mom with a well-deserved day of doing nothing but relaxing at Body Blitz Spa, lyashi Bedrock Spa or send her on a weekend getaway at Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain.

  1. Love your list girls!

    Because my family is British, I must point out that "High Tea" is the wrong term for what you're thinking - although it sounds fancier. The correct term, for the finger sandwhiches, scones and fanciful fun is "Afternoon Tea". Our family is a bit nutty when it comes to tea. ;)


  2. They call it high tea in Northern Ireland, and they are also British.
