Mums the Word

While I was designing our hero Mother’s Day bouquet this year, I began pondering what to name this fabulous creation. Inspiration hit, and I chose to name it ‘Mum’s the Word’, as a homage to the years of advice and support we’ve all received from our mum.

When I shared this with team, the weird and wonderful mum-isms came thick and fast. From “Who’s she? The Cat’s Mother?” to “Will you stop mithering me!” We were soon in hysterics! Reminiscing over the crazy things our mum’s have said to us over the years, and that have now found their way (embarrassingly) into our own vocabulary.

For years, my mum would say, “I've been standing here like piffy”, and while my siblings and I had NO idea what ‘piffy’ was, we were absolutely certain that we shouldn’t keep mum waiting a minute longer!

If you head over to my Facebook and Instagram pages, I’ll be sharing even more weird and wonderful mum-isms in the lead up to Mother’s Day. And, I would love it if you could share the things your mum has said to you, using the #mumstheword.

If you’ve not had a chance to check out my Mum’s the Word bouquet yet, it’s available to buy now in my online shop. This pretty creation makes the most of the beautiful blooms that are at their best in spring, including scented stocks, thlaspi, ranunculus, and genista, interspersed with luscious green foliage and hand-tied in the signature, abundant Flower Lounge style.

My online shop also contains a wide selection of other beautiful Mother’s Day bouquets, plants and gift bundles that would make stunning gifts. And, better still, you can purchase online, for home delivery, earning you some serious brownie points for minimum effort. So, as mum would say, “there’s no need to get your knickers in a twist” this Mother’s Day, we’ve got you sorted!
