The Grounds of Alexandria are hosting a lunch and dinner Mother's Day special with beautiful flower arrangement, intricate table settings, a custom & delicious tasting menu from Executive Chef Paul McGrath and a personalised gift for each mum.
We'll bring the flowers, delicious food and beautiful surroundings. You bring mum. It's the perfect way to say thank-you!
Make it a Mother's Day to remember by treating that special woman in your life to a unique day like nothing you've ever seen before. We're going all out to transform our Atrium and laneways to create a jaw-dropping, mouth-watering occasion that's fit for a queen.
What does this mean? It means a glass of Pol Roger champagne or cocktail on arrival, followed by a selection of non-alcoholic drinks to accompany your meal. (You can purchase further wine or champagne if you desire on the day.) It also means a chef's welcome plate and 3-course meal, loaded with signature Grounds fare that includes an abundant seafood entrée, unique and plentiful Sunday Roast with a very decadent dessert true to The Grounds usual event style.
This all happens surrounded by the aroma and ambience of beautiful installations created on-site by our resident florist, Florals by Silva. As part of the day, mum will be treated to one of Silva's special flower crowns and a gift at her table – already making her the queen of the day.
With the mood set beautifully by our live 3-piece band, and magical photo areas with Instagram printers on hand to capture all the moments, this will truly be a day to remember.
We're so excited to bring this very special Mother's Day celebration to you. Join us on May 8th and deliver her the day she deserves!
