A sweet sweetness
This Mother’s Day, The Ivy Harrogate is delighted to celebrate with a carefully crafted dessert designed to please the palate and the senses. Surprise mothers and loved ones this March with the limited-edition floral Mother’s Day macaron, incorporating a delicious raspberry, almond and pistachio macaron filled with fresh vanilla ice cream and topped with a rich sauce with raspberries. The Floral Mother’s Day Macaroon (£10.25) is available for one day only on Sunday March 27 at The Ivy Harrogate.

Rather than the traditional bouquet of flowers on this Mother’s Sunday, why not give your mom a flower crown kit instead? As something you can do together, it’s the perfect activity for beginners looking to create their own floral wreath. The kit contains beautiful dried spring meadow flowers and instructions for an easy to assemble wreath at home. We suggest wearing yours while sipping delicious G&T with your mom in the garden.

love of lobster
Treat yourself to a convivial seafood platter at superb seaside restaurants in North Yorkshire. Try freshly landed Bridlington Bay lobster at Salt on the Harbour. Try the Saltburn Crab Brioche recommended by Nadia (Hussain) and Fred (Sirieix) at Seaview in Saltburn-by-the-sea or dive into oysters and platter by the harbor at Star Inn the Harbor in Whitby.
To show creativity
Spend quality time with your mom this Mother’s Day at TYRO Studios. This new Scandinavian-inspired studio space will host a range of creative workshops and lifestyle events. It can range from a relaxing evening of painting with red wine in hand to an afternoon of embroidery accompanied by a delicious glass of prosecco. There is also the possibility to buy a nice selection of carefully selected gifts in the shop.
