Brisbane’s tastiest Mother’s Day picnic packs

That’s going straight in my picnic basket.

Picnic lovers, rejoice! From May 2, Queensland is giving the green light to picnics with members of the same household, and one friend (just in time for Mother’s Day!). 

Your Mum was already stoked that pasta necklaces won’t be appearing in this year’s gift rotation (good luck making one with gluten-free wholemeal spaghetti, Greg), but she’ll be even more thrilled when you sit her down at New Farm Park with a bottle of rosé. 

What else does Mum want besides wine, fresh air, and attention? For the rest of the family to “eat something!!” To keep the most important woman in your life happy, here’s our round up of Brisbane’s tastiest Mother’s Day picnic packs. 

One Fish Two Fish

There’s something for every Mum, with three well thought out packs available at One Fish Two Fish! Best suited to the picnic life are ‘Shrimply the Best’ (think cocktail-style prawns) and ‘The World is your Oyster’ (think fresh Tasmanian Pacific Oysters). Along with their respective seafood heroes, each pack includes dessert, wine, and flowers, popped in an adorable canvas carry bag for her to keep! Orders must be placed online by 5pm on Thursday, May 7 – get that sorted here, and you’re automatically upgraded to ‘favourite child.’

Botanica

She’s decided to do a cleanse that runs through Mother’s Day, but by gum, she’s sticking to it! Botanica’s medium pack offers a balanced diet, being salad for Ma, and cake for you. You’ll also get hooked up with savoury tarts and juice, topping off an already tasty treat to enjoy in your activewear (better believe she’s taking you on a jog after lunch). Get those eats sorted here.

C’est Bon

She’ll be one happy camper with this hamper! C’est Bon is wrapping up a selection of charcuterie, cheese, vino, artisan bread, pastries, *takes a breath*, a selection of C’est Bon spreads, a freaking scented candle, AND flowers. It’ll get delivered to your door on the big day, giving you a fresh pack of everything but the kitchen sink to enjoy in the great outdoors. Call the C’est team directly on 0487 383 869, and breathe out. 

New Farm Deli & Café

Does she just want charcuterie with a side of judging the family sitting two blankets over? Done. Fill Mum’s glass with luxurious Italian wine, lift the lid on a fresh Caprese platter, and watch her feel the appreciation she deserves. Check out what’s on offer here, and give the team a buzz on (07) 3358 2634. 

Mr Chester Wine Bar

Mr Chester’s ‘Doomsday Prepper Package’ weirdly works as a Mother’s Day picnic pack. Your family can indulge in four kinds of cheeses and cured meats, plus figs, quince, pickles, and bread, making the perfect sides to the main course – wine! Everything you’re after can 100% be delivered, more on that here.

Here’s to you, Mum!
