celebrate mum with a picnic in the park

gather the family & pack a basket full of egg & give mum the day off she deserves!


your mum works hard all year round so now it’s your turn to give her a mother’s day to remember!

having you there to celebrate is definitely the best gift of all… but if you’re after some more ideas egg is here to help.


pick a  location…

although melbourne’s weather can be unpredictable to say the least, when the sun does decide to shine we have a huge selection of beautiful parks & gardens to enjoy – so pack a picnic, nibble & sip… and hopefully bask in the sun all day long!


time out melbourne have put together a list of the best picnic spots in melbourne to help make your choice easier!

now that you have the location sorted, it’s important to construct a check list with all the essentials (just so you don’t forget a single thing)…

a great app to store all lists is wunderlist – easy format & an easy way to tick things off as you go!
