The Best Way to Spend Mother’s Day | The Winter Sculpture Fair

Mother’s day is such an awesome day, but someone always ends up doing all the work, usually the mother. Last year we decided to spend the day at the Winter Sculpture Fair instead of invading someone’s house. The results were spectacular.

We sat on the grass at the foot of a giant sculpture in the NIROX Sculpture Park surrounded by trees with the best wine and food from Franschhoek a few feet away.

Yes, you read that right. You have a picnic amongst life-size sculptures, sipping and eating the best wine and food Franschhoek has to offer. Swoon worthy.

Tickets are R165 per person and are only available via their website and will not be sold at the door. The event runs over two days, 7th and 8th of May 2016. Kids under 12 are free, but no pets are allowed. Blankets and folding chairs are a good idea.

Perhaps your mother in law would resonate with this installation?

Spoil your mother and yourself. There are only 25 days left until Mother’s Day, buy your tickets today!
