Mothers Day is a rare opportunity for me to put my feet up and be indulged. Even as a florist, receiving a gorgeous bouquet always makes my day!  Relaxed, simple and fun, my perfect day would consist of:

Breakfast in Bed.

I’d love being woken up with tray of delights. This recipe by Honest cooking would a dream way to start to my day.

A lazy Sunday wander in the park 

A lazy stroll is a must on a Sunday afternoon. I like the whole family to take a wander with all our dogs in tow in my favourite London space, Hampstead Heath. My little relaxed haven within London, I often sink into a cup of black Earl Grey tea and and sandwich whilst the kids are having a run around on a brisk Sunday afternoon.

Afternoon Tea in Claridge’s 

This one may be a long shot, but I’d love to spend the remainder of my afternoon sipping on champagne and nibbling finger sandwiches and gorgeous cakes in Claridge’s. Their baked raisin and apple scones are divine!

Say it with flowers

Finally it would make my day to receive my favourite arrangement, the Mothers Day Delicious Peach bouquet. Full of beautiful shades of delicate lime and peach, this fresh bouquet would certainly brighten my day.

This weekend, we collaborated with Andrew Egan, Creative Director of Cool Gray Seven, and interior designer Melody Weir to dress a large exhibition space for skincare brand Comfort Zone at the Professional Beauty London event, held at the Excel Exhibition Centre.

It really stood out from other exhibitors with a striking greenhouse structure, beautiful marble tables and a variety of glass vases. This wonderful setting was complimented by scented herbs and lovely muted green and grey tones of foliage, such as sumptuous masses of eucalyptus.

Although the origins of Valentine’s Day are shrouded in mystery, like so much of our culture many believe it can be traced back to the Ancient World. It is not even certain which of three Saint Valentines the day actually honours, but it is most often associated with the story of a young priest living in the Roman Empire. He became famous for continuing to secretly marry young lovers, even though Emperor Claudius II had forbidden younger citizens from marrying because married men were supposedly distracted from military service! When news of Valentine spread, he was jailed and sentenced to death. While imprisoned, he fell in love with the jailer’s daughter. Legend has it that, on the night of his execution, he handed her a love letter, signed ‘from your Valentine’.

Valentine’s Day is celebrated at a time of year that is associated with love and fertility in pagan religions, and brides in Ancient Rome wore wreaths of picked flowers and also herbs to symbolize the same. Other flowers associated with various types of love include tulips, roses, primrose, purple lilac, jasmine, aster and balsam.
Some archaeologists even claim that flower fossils found in caves suggest the tradition of sending flowers dates back to the prehistoric period! For our full range of bouquets and other gifts available for nationwide delivery, visit our online shop or contact one of our shops.
