Strawberries, raspberries, fresh cream from Maleny Dairies, chocolate and a sprinkle of icing sugar. Need we say more? This is a fun kitchen activity to get the kids involved with too.
2. Sweet delivery
There are a number of businesses offering takeaway and delivery high tea hampers that are sure to bring a smile to any woman’s face. Our suggestions: try Aimee Provence in Buderim or Myrtle’s Pantry in Caloundra.
Foot spa, scalp massage, nail painting – with a little encouragement, the kids will love playing beauty salon with mum for an hour or two.
Although our retail therapy experiences have changed somewhat in recent weeks, there are still plenty of Sunshine Coast boutiques open and offering online purchasing, private shopping experiences or home delivery. Visit downtowncaloundra.com.au for a list of Caloundra businesses including Dan Scott Style, Shannon’s Shoes or The BookShop. Or try Buderim’s Sedgwick’s Boutique, Yellow Oak Clothing & Homewares; Mooloolaba’s Mikimi Resortwear or Meraki Thread Co; Cotton Tree’s Coast Store and OV Boutique. Of course, these are just a few of the many options – be sure to phone your favourite store to find out more about opening hours and availability. Don’t forget that many of the small, locally owned florists are also still offering home deliveries!
Now Queensland has eased its restrictions, why not pack a picnic full of local produce and cheeses, and visit one of the region’s beautiful locations. We love Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve and Maroochy Regional Bushland Botanic Garden.
