Mother’s Day is all about getting mum spoiled so it’s time to create the ultimate indulgence outdoor area as she awaits her barbecue feast!

Think the comfiest of hammocks, armed with her favourite drink all the while being serenaded by her favourite tunes.

If you’re setting up on a grassed area, lay an oversized picnic rug, a low picnic table, some chairs or pillows for seating, flowers and tasty nibbles.

Your mum now is all set to enjoy the rest of the afternoon!

And now for the menu

While the sausage is always a go-to favourite for a weekend meal, Samba recommends a Mother’s Day barbecue menu that warrants a more bespoke experience.

Think chilli garlic skewers beautifully seared on the hot coals or an eye fillet steak, grilled to mum’s perfection and accompanied by charcoaled broccolini and beans, topped with a salsa verdi.

For chicken lovers, perhaps a grilled stuffed chicken breast, filled with glorious mozzarella cheese, baby spinach and sundried tomatoes accompanied by grilled corn on the cob and rosemary infused sweet potato fries.

Delighting mum with dessert

It wouldn’t be Mother’s Day without presenting mum with an unforgettable and mouth-watering dessert – but it certainly doesn’t have to be complex.  To keep up with the barbecue theme, consider making BBQ rum and caramel bananas in foil – with vanilla ice cream of course!

Kebabs can take on a whole new meaning with marshmallows and strawberry skewers, which are then dipped into melted chocolate.  Simply delicious.
