Mothers Day-14th March 2021 - the best time to remind your Mum that although you may not (always/ever) show it, they are pretty much always right! That you love them unconditionally for all the unconditional love they have showed you and that you appreciate all the small things they do that add up to so much!
Mothers day goes all the way back to Greek and Roman times with an annual spring festival of maternal goddesses! It is traditionally celebrated in Britain on the fourth Sunday in Lent since at least the 13th Century, the custom is thought to have come about because it was expected that everyone would revisit the church of their baptism (or Mother Church) - over time the custom grew to celebrating your actual Mother and grew largely through the 18th and 19th Century where workers (particularly girls in service) were allowed to go home and visit their families on this particular weekend.
Of course flowers are a firm tradition when it comes to Mothers Day - they were given to Children from local churches to gift to their Mothers in times gone by after the traditional Mothering Sunday service.
Flowers are of course a luxury and are still given to this day to celebrate all that is amazing about our Mums!
Daffodils are the favourite flower for mothers day as the represent new beginnings and rebirth. I will be adding some really cute varieties of daffodils (narcissi) to my mothers day arrangements to reflect this.
I have created a small Mothers Day Collection this year -check it out here - each will be full of roses, dafodils, ranunculus, anenome tulips, alstromeria, freesia along with some light and fresh foliage. I want to create a natural, fresh vibrant coloured flower display that says thank you, we appreciate you and most of all we love you!
I am delivering on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th so get your orders in now to avoid disappointment.
