Mother's Day

This Sunday is the Mother's Day in the UK and we'd like to share some ideas with you to spend a wonderful day with your mother! We have chosen three things to do on Mother's Day in London. See below! 

1. Mothering Sunday at Kensington Palace

Treat your mum to an afternoon at Kensington Palace this Mother's Day. The grand building and its beautiful gardens make for an ideal springtime stroll (as long the weather holds out), which will help work up an ample appetite for an indulgent Georgian-style tea party in the palace's restaurant, The Oranagery. If tea, sarnies, cake and other sugary treats don't keep Mum sweet for the day, then quite frankly we give up.

2. The Vogue Festival 2014

Tell Mum to grab her heels and her best frock for one of the biggest weekends in the fashion calendar: The Vogue Festival 2014. Across two days this couture celebration will be held at Queen Elizabeth Hall in the Southbank Centre and boasts interviews, panel talks, trend discussions and styling workshops as part of its agenda. Confirmed speakers for this year's event include the likes Alexa Chung, Manolo Blahnik, Naomi Campbell and Grayson Perry, to name just a perfectly-groomed handful. 

3. Annual Opening of Kew Palace

Kew Palace, located in the the grounds of Kew Gardens, opens its doors to the public just in time for Mother's Day. Welcoming visitors for the spring and summer every year, this distinctly Dutch-looking brick mansion set amidst the greenery of Kew Gardens is a pretty sight, yet it was in this building that George III was confined during his episodes of the mysterious and debilitating illness that is now believed to have been porphyria. Highlights of the house include the royal kitchen, which were restored last year; Queen Charlotte's Cottage, a rustic retreat hidden amidst the gardens; and Princess Elizabeth's bedroom, which she styled herself back in the 18th century.

Of course, if you're thinking about giving her a present, there's no better detail than the beautiful handcrafted Hardy&Parsons' belts =) You can see all of them here!

And if you're uncertain about which belt do you prefer, the, have a look below and see our choices for this occasion ;)
