As it’s Mother’s Day this weekend, we thought we’d round up a few of the best things to do in the local area to help you celebrate. Whether your mum loves a relaxing day at home or a fancy Sunday lunch, here are our picks of the best ways to celebrate Mother’s Day in Musselburgh and East Lothian this year.
Wreath Making Workshop at The Restoration Yard
Mums always love receiving a bunch of flowers, but why not go one step further this year and treat her to a flower arranging workshop? Head to The Restoration Yard in Dalkeith Country Park for a spring wreath making workshop on 31st March. Using fresh foliage and blooms, you’ll be taught how to create a stunning spring wreath – and you can take it home with you to admire afterwards!
Simon Says Dance: Rebellion at The Brunton
If your mum loves the theatre, take her along to The Brunton this Mother’s Day to see Simon Says Dance: Rebellion. This fun and energetic dance show has been put together by the junior students of the local Simon Says Dance school. Whether your wee ones are performing, or you just fancy watching the show, it’s sure to be an exciting night out.
Afternoon Tea at Carberry Tower
Treat your mum to a luxurious afternoon tea at Carberry Tower this weekend. Just a short drive from Musselburgh, Carberry Tower is a beautiful mansion house surrounded by lovely grounds, so it’s the perfect place for a sophisticated day out. Choose a traditional afternoon tea with scones, sweet treats and sandwiches, or make things extra special by adding a glass of prosecco, champagne or a G&T.
Fish and Chips at East Coast
If your mum is quite laid back but would still love a little treat for Mother’s Day, take her for lunch or dinner at East Coast. A traditional fish and chip shop with a stylish restaurant attached, East Coast’s menu is full of fresh Scottish seafood. Enjoy a walk along the beach before heading into the restaurant for a well-earned Mother’s Day meal.
