Florists are busy gearing up for one of the busiest occasions of the year – Mother’s Day. Roses? Chrysanthemums? Tulips? Or something completely different?
We asked Kristy from Say it With Flowers in Malvern her thoughts on the best blooms and gift ideas to celebrate your mum. “At this time of year tulips are fantastic, and also seasonal bouquets with some of our gorgeous autumn colours,” she said.
Kristy also said that flowers that come with a ‘lasting gift’ such as ceramic pots or coloured glassware are definitely a huge trend.
“Our ‘Ceramic Pot: Mother’s Day Edition’ is an informal gardenesque bouquet that includes Mothers’ Day favourites such as Chrysanthemum Disbuds, Lisianthus, Roses, Queen Anne Lace and is finished with gum leaves.”
She added that another really popular Mother’s Day gifts idea is the ‘Florist Choice Flower Basket’.
“Not only does it come with a gorgeous woven basket with leather handles that mum can keep and use in the garden or out shopping, but we fill it with bunches of the most beautiful flowers and foliage such as tulips, roses, and snap dragons. What’s lovely about this is that mum can then arrange the flowers herself to suit her own vases and style.”
Whether you’re giving, receiving, or displaying – flowers always create a smile. At Marshall White we know how important fresh floral displays are when it comes to property styling, and many of our agents choose to gift bouquets to clients. Buying flowers all year round helps us support our magnificent local florists.
