If you need ideas for where to go on Mother’s Day you will be spoilt for choice. So, keep reading below in order to create the perfect celebration of all the mothers in your office.
Treat them to some cupcakes
Cupcakes are a wildly popular office treat, so why not take the moms in your office out for something extra special and treat them to a delectable red velvet cupcake from The Velvet Cake Company, which can be found in Bellville, Canal Walk Shopping Mall, and Tygervalley Shopping Centre.
This cute and quirky cake store offers stunning cupcake creations, ranging from the simple yet sumptuous red velvet variety to the moreish milk tart cupcake. Cupcakes are the perfect bite-sized treat to show your office that you care, and can be brought in for everyone to enjoy in celebration of mothers. You could also ask a local bakery to create personalised cupcakes for the women in your office. Be sure to ask about any food sensitivities or restrictions.
Celebrate Mother’s Day with a lunch
Sometimes the simplest gestures mean the most, and taking your colleagues out for a tasty lunch to celebrate Mother’s Day is an ideal option. If your offices are in Century City, you have the option of heading to Canal Walk shopping centre to choose from a plethora of restaurants offering both casual dining and formal options.
You could treat everyone to a gourmet pizza lunch or you could opt for a more gourmet option at a wine estate. You will need to ensure that everyone can be included, so ask for a detailed list of dietary requirements from your colleagues. You could treat everyone to a three-course meal at an up-and-coming restaurant for something exciting and unique. There are many Mother’s Day specials that are available on this day, so keep an eye out for these offers.
Beautiful bouquets are the best
When it comes to celebrating Mother’s Day, there is no better gesture than providing a stunning bouquet of flowers. You could create personalised bunches for each of the mothers to reflect their unique personalities or you could ask a florist to do so based on their intricate flower knowledge. For example, pink and white chrysanthemums are popular flowers for mothers as they represent happiness, love, and joy.
You could do something completely different and opt for a chocolate bouquet, which is an arrangement of chocolate made to look like a bouquet of flowers. And for those moms who enjoy savoury treats, a biltong or bacon bouquet is a unique and tasty treat. You will need to check for any pollen allergies in the office so as not to make anyone sick and should be sure that the bouquets remain fresh and vibrant for the day by providing flower food and fresh water for them.
Splash out on a spa day
Mothers work hard both at home and in the office, and so surprising your employees or colleagues with a spa day is a sure-fire way to make them feel special and appreciated. You could book a day at a local spa, allowing your colleagues or employees to choose the packages they prefer or you could opt for the Mother’s Day specials that will be on offer.
If you think that the mothers in your office would prefer to put together their own spa day packages, you can provide them with a voucher to a Sorbet spa so they can choose a facial, manicure, pedicure or other special treatment. A day of pampering and relaxation will allow them to come back to the office feeling refreshed and renewed. Ensure that everyone is comfortable with going to the spa before giving this gift.
A little thanks goes a long way
A simple gesture to your employees and colleagues can go a long way in showing them how much you care, especially on an occasion such as Mother’s Day. You can treat the mothers in your office to some sweet and decadent cupcakes or take them out for a special lunch. Buying bouquets of carefully chosen flowers or spa vouchers will also show the mothers in your business that you appreciate everything they do.
