The Flying Trunk is one of the hidden gems on King William Road and if you haven’t visited and enjoyed a cocktail or two of their extensive list you will want to visit for Mothers Day as they serve a beautiful High in their unique and intimate setting.

Évi, owner of The Flying Trunk

Mum of one, Évi and her husband own and manage The Flying Trunk as Évi juggles the constant balance of motherhood and running a small business, two jobs you never really switch off from.

How do you balance motherhood with managing The Flying Trunk?

Balance is a strong word but with alternating work nights with Dad, a great car to get around in with little miss collecting all the goodies for the bar and the Frozen album on Apple Music, we manage!

What motivates you everyday?

People motivate and inspire me. From my fiancé and kids, or a chat with mum on the phone to a smile from a stranger! When I remember how good the human connection is I feel invincible.


How do you plan to spend Mothers Day with your family?

As we host High Tea on Mothers Day, we have special ‘Hospitality Mother’s Day’ the Sunday after the other mums. We usually have a special lunch or nice picnic. (Click here to book your seat at The Flying Trunk high tea)

Can you share a favourite memory with your Mum?

Dancing every night in the lounge room to the Hot 30 countdown with mum and my sister. We were closer then than ever! Family dancing is the best.


What is the greatest lesson your children have taught you?

You can’t do it all so slow down and prioritise. Colouring books sometimes trump housework.

What is the perfect Mothers Day gift?

I love breakfast in bed after a good sleep in and a drawing or handmade card! I keep every hand made card as they bring so much happiness.
