What a big headline you might say! What would we know about your mum, you might ask. You are absolutely right! We can’t possibly know all the wonderful mums in this world. But what we do know is that every mum appreciates to be fussed over every now and then. And what better time to show her how much she means to you than on Mother’s Day.
The tradition to honour mothers and motherhood reaches as far back as the ancient Greek and Roman times. In those days, entire festivals were held in honour of mother goddesses. In early Christianity, this became Mothering Sunday, whereas Mother’s Day as we know it only started to gain momentum in the early 1900s in the US.
Regardless of its history and no matter how old and grown up you are, mum will always be your mum and deserves the perfect gift. This is not the time to surprise her with a new vacuum cleaner or washing basket! This is the day to spoil her with something exquisite, thoughtful, and long-lasting. And we reckon a bespoke, beautifully crafted bouquet of preserved blooms and grasses will tick all those boxes.
What is the Perfect Mother’s Day Gift?
Most countries celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday in May; and May 9th 2021 is not that far away! So, whether you’re stuck for ideas, or recent Covid restrictions have put a stop to that planned weekend away or breakfast out - we’ve got you. We can prepare the most perfect dried Mother's Day arrangements, beautifully wrapped and delivered directly to her door.
Before you say that sounds a bit old fashioned or boring, here are 5 reasons why dried flowers will be the perfect gift for Mother’s Day:
Say it with (dried) flowers: We’ve yet to hear from a mum who doesn’t love being given flowers. Instead, we know of mums who’ve dried their bouquets, just to keep and admire them for a bit longer. Well, professionally preserved flowers will look fresh like this aptly named Darling Bouquet for many days, weeks, even years to come.
Homegrown beauties: Specially in Australia, we have gorgeous native grasses and foliage to work with. Have a look at how gum foliage lifts this Luxe Mother's Day bouquet and provides a stunning contrast to its pink hues, or how Emu Feather fern adds a delicate touch to this stunning Hero bouquet.
Personal and individual: You know best what colours she loves, or which flowers are her favourites. Select something that represents mum’s spirit! Whether it’s delicate and dainty hues and shapes, or more sculptural plants and earthy tones; you’re bound to find an arrangement that ‘is uniquely her’. Have a look at this stunning Eternal Mother's Day bouquet with its fluffy cotton balls or the Heartfelt Bouquet with its preserved roses and palm leaves adding bright pops of pink.
Totally on trend: The use of dried and preserved flowers and grasses has really come a long way. Dried arrangements have been trending for all the right reasons lately. Just have a look at the stunning floral arrangements for this high end department store in Japan by DK Designers. Besides being a hot topic in interior design, dried flower arrangements are also sought after for weddings and events. So, rather than having to throw out fresh flowers a week later, mum’s present will add an air of Parisian chic or understated natural beauty to any room.
On-time, easy delivery with the personal touch: You may be strapped for time or you may not be able to visit mum at all. Not to worry, we’ll make sure your mum gets her exquisitely crafted, bespoke and beautifully wrapped dried flowers straight to her front door, on time (check deadlines for your area).
Why is your Mother’s Day Gift Important?
Did you know that there are more phone calls being made on Mother’s Day globally, than on any other day of the year? (Source: Reuters). It’s not surprising really, when you think about it. Most of us know mum to be the one who miraculously produces plasters, tissues, sunscreen, or lollies out of her bag.
She’s the birthday cake baker and decorator (and lets you lick the icing bowl clean), the spelling checker, the kiss-it-better-er when you’re little. She has your sports gear ready, picks you up from parties or might let you borrow her car when you’re a teenager.
And she’s the one who will stock up the fridge with your favourite food for when you’re home from uni; and eventually, she might be the one spoiling your children.
Do we need to say more? You will have your own memories you treasure, your own reasons to thank your mum for all that she has done and continues to do for you.
On the 9th of May, Mother’s Day, it is your turn to spoil her. A gorgeous, dried flower bouquet will not only be a heartfelt thank-you, it’ll also be a thoughtful gift that is personal and unique to her and one she’ll be able to treasure for a long time.
