Mother’s day originates from the 16th century and the Christian practice of visiting your Mother’s church on the 4th Sunday of lent when Mother’s would often be reunited with their children for the first time that year. It wasn’t until the Second World War when American soldiers reignited the interest in the celebration and it was merged with the Mothering Sunday that it became a celebrated day up and down the country and one of the busiest days for florists! This year why not break away from the normal gifts and treat you Mum to an Experience she will not forget!
