Mother’s Day is way too quickly approaching and will be here before we know it! Not to worry because Chapel Street has something for every type of mama. Whether you’re celebrating your own or congratulating a new one, all mums deserve to be recognized.
So, in honour of the second Sunday of May, we’ve compiled a list of 10 ways to treat mum and say just how much you love her!
1. South Yarra Shopping Spree
Fill mums wardrobe with the fashion elites of South Yarra. Designer stores like Sass and Bide, Marimekko, Witchery and Seed are all neighbours here. Start at the corner of Toorak Road and Chapel Street, mosey down with your fashionista mum and watch as your purse loses a few kgs.
Got an art lovin’ mama? Treat her to a guided running (or swift walking) tour through Melbourne’s most unique laneways and back streets. She’ll love discovering the incredible street art murals and artwork Chapel Street has to offer. Book here.
Show your love and appreciation to the wine loving lady in your life by treating her to a special five-plate menu and a glass of Heidsieck Monopole NV Brut champagne at $65 per person.
Bookings are essential. Call 03 9514 2444 or e-mail email@example.com

4. Poké Rosé Sundé at The Imperial South Yarra
Pick up a collection of Prahran Market cheeses, charcuterie and accompaniments… then whip into Dan Murphy’s Prahran for a stellar bottle of vino. Treat your special mama to a picnic in Grattan Gardens, or an easy lunch at home where she won’t need to lift a finger.
