Growing up, my favorite Mother’s Day tradition was racing to make breakfast before my mom would wake-up so that it would be a true breakfast in bed. She is an early riser, and I have never been, so more often than not she would have to pretend to be just waking up by the time I got breakfast up to her, but it was always our special way of starting off the day. I can hardly remember what we made, it was usually whatever we had on hand, but another tradition we kept up was serving breakfast with a side of flowers.
Last year, Rupert adopted the tradition and made me my favorite breakfast… blueberry pancakes, accompanied by my favorite flowers… Peonies! He is a keeper, that one. And while he has so many skills, flower arranging is not one of them. Luckily there is Teleflora. Their flowers are hand-delivered and already professionally arranged by a local florist so there is no struggle to find the perfect vase, no cutting the stems, or fussing over the pretty blooms. They arrive ready to enjoy.The Peonies are a limited seasonal item from Teleflora (lucky for me, Mother’s day usually falls within that small window) but they also have other beautiful bouquets that are created specifically with Mother’s Day in mind. Like this “Butterfly Sunrise” bouquet. I love the peachy pink roses in this one, which match my current color obsession, and all their arrangements come in containers, which are a keepsake after the flowers have long been enjoyed. I will be enjoying the butterfly mug it came in for my giant cup of morning tea.
What are your Mother’s Day traditions? Do you guys have any special ways of showing your mom she’s your #1 or maybe you have some new hints I need to drop on Rupert? 😉
