Why We Give Flowers On Mother’s Day

Updated: May 6, 2023

With Mother’s Day coming up on the 19th March you may be wondering why flowers always seem to be the go to gift?

Well there is good reason; as well as looking (and hopefully) smelling great, flowers represent the season of spring and are a sign of life and fertility - the gifts that a mother has bestowed on us.

The tradition of giving flowers on Mother's Day apparently comes from the U.K. - servants were given time off ahead of Easter to spend with their family and they would pick flowers on their way home to gift to their mothers or to take back to their 'mother' church. Cute huh?

On the 17th March you can make with tradition and create your own Mother's Day bouquet in our hand tied bouquet workshop. The last few places are remaining and we are running a deal so if you book two tickets you will get 15% off your order!

This Mother's Day we have a gorgeous bouquet named in honour of possibly the cutest thing my son had ever said to me:

"Mummy, you smell like... LOVE".

My aim therefore was to recreate something that would smell beautiful and be long lasting... 'You Smell Like Love' features heavenly Roselilies (also known as double lilies these beauties do not have any of the pesky pollen bits but still smell divine), amazing scented stocks, large headed avalanche roses, blossom and just a hint of mimosa.
