Flowers for Mother's Day can be delivered on Friday May 12th, Saturday May 13th or Sunday May 14th.

Especially if Mum is going to be out to lunch on Sunday it's perfect to have the flowers delivered on Saturday.

Spend a day learning clever tricks on home styling, event decorating and everyday styling with flowers. Create a full seasonal posy, using all the blooms true to the season and all of Mum’s favourites! Learn ‘how to’ tricks when working with various vases and vessels around the house, and create a vase design to suit any space. Learn unique wrapping techniques with a sweet perennial plant, enjoy learning about succulents and gaining valuable flower care knowledge. All blooms and props are provided as well as snacks, tea and coffee.

Mother's Day from the 70's
"Flower fashions may change but the reasons for sending them remain the same!"
Looking through our files we found this great cutting from a newspaper from the 70's. Pictured are Mr & Mrs P with son Bernard. Sadly Mr & Mrs P recently passed away but their passion for flowers stays with us and son Bernard is still visiting the markets daily from 3am to bring us beautiful, fresh flowers!

Why celebrate Mothers Day?   
Quite simply,…if it wasn’t for your mother, you wouldn’t be here today!
The moon never beams without bringing me dreams 
Of that wonderful mother of mine; 
The birds never sing but a message they bring 
Of that wonderful mother of mine.   
Walter Goodwin, music, and Clyde Hager, lyrics, 
"That Wonderful Mother of Mine." 
 - Historic American Sheet Music, 1850-1920  

The History of Mothers Day
The origin of Mothers Day started had its beginnings in Ancient Greece.  This was part of an annual spring celebration to honour Rhea who was the Mother of Gods. Other traditions included early Christians in England who celebrated Mothers Day as the fourth Sunday of Lent in honour of the Virgin Mary.  Over time, this tradition has shifted to the American celebration of Mothers Day which had its origin from the Civil War.  In 1907, Mothers Day became a national event in USA and in 1915, USA President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the 2nd Sunday of May as Mothers Day.    

Mother's Day in Australia  
The origin of Mothers day in Australia was first celebrated in Burwood Presbyterian Church in the 1920’s.  The tradition was associated with giving fresh flowers to mothers as a symbol of love and gratitude. 
Mother's day is a way to recognize the special role and contribution women make to firstly bring children into the world and the many sacrifices they make to care and nurture children as they become adults themselves. It is the way to send a heart-felt thank you to your Mum for everything she has done for you. This is best said with a beautiful bunch of fresh flowers which will undoubtedly delight any mother who receives it.
