Bundaberg mums were treated to high tea delicacies in the picturesque gardens of Fairymead House to celebrate Mother’s Day.
The sold-out Fairymead High Tea event proved popular with all ages, as generations gathered to celebrate their mums for Mother’s Day.
The beautiful sounds of Bundaberg-raised singer Chelsea Stutchbury filtered through the gardens as guests enjoyed an arrangement of high tea treats on the balcony of Fairymead House.
Chelsea’s passion for music started at a young age, she was influenced by a line of strong women, being not only her mother Judith, but also her grandma Margery, who inspired her to follow her musical dream.
“I have very important women in my life, and it’s lovely they came out to support me here at Fairymead House for Mother’s Day,” Chelsea said.
Chelsea is a vocalist, composer and music producer who has just completed a Bachelor of Music majoring in Contemporary Music at The University of Sydney, Conservatorium of Music.
Enjoying the relaxing afternoon Robyn Hardie, with her daughters Linda Newton and Katherine Hardie, said the Fairymead High Tea made the weekend a little more special.
“I really love the concept, just as I love my girls,” she said.
“As a mother you are always proud, as my children are my pinnacle.”
Robyn said she had celebrated Mother’s Day as a mum 46 times, and each year it got better.
“We moved from Sydney to Bundaberg, and I can definitely say the Council always put on wonderful events, there is definitely plenty to do,” she said.
“The afternoon and the surroundings are just beautiful, it’s the perfect way to spend Mother’s Day.”
Sisters Karla Johnston and Rebecca Bowman treated both their mum Carolyn Bowman, and grandmother Joyce Fritz to a delightful afternoon in the warm Bundaberg autumn.
“It really is a nice way to spend an afternoon for Mother’s Day together,” Rebecca said.
Carolyn said it was the first time she had attended an event at Fairymead House, and she was delighted with the experience.
