Some of the best places for a Mother's Day treat
Treat your mother this Mother's Day to an experience that's just as unique and wonderful as she is! Here is a short guide to the some of best Mother's Day experiences available in Birmingham. From family fun, tea for two or something a little more exotic - there's something for every mother.
1. Cocktails and Perfume Making at The Botanist
The Botanist is teaming up with The Perfume Studio and William Chase gin to host an evening of perfume making, pampering and cocktails on March 21st 18:30 – 20:30. Ticket holders will be introduced to the magical world of perfumery and learn how to blend their own unique fragrance to take home. That's much more special than just buying her a bottle of scent.
What's more, The Perfume Studio will store each new creation in their fragrance library, so Mum never has to run out of her new favourite fragrance (plus, that'll sort out her Christmas present). A brilliant experience, perfect for reminding her just how special she is.
The Botanist 14-16 Temple Street, Birmingham B2 5BG 0121 600 7430 thebotanist.uk.com Tickets cost £30 per person and are very limited. For more information or to book call 0121 600 7430.

The house offers a range of child-friendly interactive exhibits and outdoors there's plenty of room for children to explore. So, there is something to everyone here meaning Mum can be treated to a lovely day out with all the family. And when you're hungry from all that exploring there is an excellent lunch menu, or you could treat Mum to a delightful an Afternoon Tea for Two priced at £12.95.
