She’s making sandwiches while changing a diaper while hosting a Zoom call for work. She’s sitting on top of the eight-year-old “at school” on the computer while simultaneously sewing the holes in her kid’s sweater.
What hasn’t Mom done this year? Whether it’s how expertly she’s multitasked, how she’s home-schooled while holding down an office job, or she’s been an incredible Grandma, Mom is just the best. This isn’t the year to send her a postcard for Mother’s Day. (It’s May 9th!) Do a little more, if you can.
We know; you’re strapped for time! Right there with you. Let us make it easy with our incredible new flower delivery. Harvest to home in just three days, bouquets are picked and arranged before being shipped straight from the warehouse, for optimal freshness. (Or you can send flowers in bulk and allow Mom to appreciate their unfettered simplicity, or free to weave her own floral magic!) See Test Kitchen Director Belle English rocking her flower-arranging skills, below! (These tips will help Mom keep flowers fresh and change up the look of her bouquet at home.)
And if your mother will admire the flowers for exactly two seconds before turning her attention to whatever sweets are lurking about her home, we know exactly what to send her: Flowers that ARE sweets in the form of these Miniature bouquet cakes.
Beloved Florida bakers We Take the Cake make these little beauties exclusively for us. There are both chocolate and vanilla cakes, all frosted with buttercream, and you can bet that Mom won’t be the only one in the house happy about their arrival.
Think: Gift Basket
Are you sensing a theme, here? Everything’s coming up roses! (Or hydrangeas, or tulips, or…) We love our gift baskets with floral themes, and it’s hard not to be extra-smitten with this little number called “Lots of Love.” Dried flowers include purple larkspur, white-and-yellow ammobium, pink globe amaranth and yellow straw flower. Plus there’s coffee and chocolate, which any Mom needs and deserves.
If Mom will see a gorgeous bouquet and bemoan her lack of an ability to keep flowers alive for very long (while making you her famous grilled duck with cherries dish), think: entertaining. This is a person who likes to cook and host. Give her what she wants! Gold-rimmed salad plates inspired by Chinese porcelain? Now we’re talking. In fact, we’ve got all sorts of floral plates just right for spring.
For the matriarch who would rather be caught robbing a bank than caught without proper seasonal décor, consider this knockout dried flower wreath. It features bay leaves, air-dried savory, marjoram, strawflowers, globe amaranth, German statice, pepperberry and lavender. She will hang it on the front door in a heartbeat.
