Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, and given the current global situation (yes, the dreaded “C” word) looking for the perfect gift has become considerably more difficult. If you’re anything like us at team White Lily, then I’m sure your usual plans of generations uniting to spend the day together somewhere special need to be reconsidered.
Whether you’re away from your family or stuck in isolation with them, we have curated a list of our favourite local floral babes who are providing incredible delivery services to spoil your mum, grandmother, sister (or even yourself) this Mother’s Day.
- New England Flower Co.
Owner Jess wasn’t lying when she said “seasonal, abundant and old-fashioned flowers that make your heart sing.” You can simply visit the New England Flower Co. website and order a bright and cheerful bouquet, a soft pastel flower arrangement or even opt for natural greens and whites.
If you’re wanting to add a little something extra, Jess is currently working in collaboration with Vanilla Pod Speciality Cakes so that you can add a naughty (but very nice) treat to your Mother’s Day gift. The “Sprinkle a Little Sweetness” deal allows you to select a posie jar and order your choice of six or nine lucky dip cupcakes. For any of you with gluten free mamas, they also provide the option to select from standard or gluten free cupcakes – perfectly covering all bases!
- Samantha’s Flowers by Design
The options are endless with Samantha’s Flowers by Design, a North Brisbane business specialising in natural, seasonal and beautiful floristry filled with texture and colour. Options include classic and timeless arrangements, as well as a wide range of dried blooms, and extra little treats like balloons, chocolates, champagne and candles!
Not only is Samantha providing contactless delivery; for anyone unable to visit their loved ones in nursing homes at these times, she is also providing free delivery to nursing homes, it really is a win-win!
- My Little Flower Shoppe
Beyond the gorgeous blooms you can order at My Little Flower Shoppe, there is an incredible list of extra gifts. You can choose from a wide range of pamper and self-care packages and hampers, divine Moss St. candles and diffusers, cakes and macaroons and many more sweet treats. The best part is you can order online and safely deliver it your loved ones!
- Unveiling Poppy
Much like the above Brissie-based businesses, award-winning store Unveiling Poppy has just as many amazing options to choose from. You might find your mother prefers plants over fresh flowers (guilty!) - an option which Unveiling Poppy provides! You can choose to purchase indoor plants, with an additional great range of pots and planters, posie candles and Church Farm Botanical Soaps.
5. Akirah Collective
For those who love a unique and vibrant bunch, you simply can't go past Akirah Collective. This local creative loves nothing more than making your occasion more beautiful and memorable than you could ever imagine, so it's no surprise that her Mother's Day special - a mix of pastels and colour pops - has us in awe! Choose from three sizes of fresh posies for pickup or delivery. You can also opt for her Mother's Day Gift Pack in partnership with Little Sprinkle Co. - a decadent selection of goodies including cupcakes, cookies, wine and a signature bunch of fresh flowers to brighten Mum's day!
