|Peaches & Cream Bouquet* from Debenhams Flowers Mother's Day range | £27.99|
When I was younger my Mother always made sure there was a fresh bunch of flowers on the kitchen table each week. We didn't live in the best neighbourhood or in the nicest house on the street, but our home always felt homely and I think fresh flowers had a lot to do with that. A cliche perhaps, but it's true when they say that flowers can brighten up a room and I suppose I had forgotten just how much magic is held within those perfectly formed petals.
There's also a special kind of magic opening the door to be greeted with a floral gift. My Mother and I opened the box and arranged these in a vase together, set them on the windowsill and stepped back to admire them. A couple of the flowers looked a little disheveled upon opening the box, but it has now been five days since they arrived and they still look the same as when we arranged them so they're holding up well so far.
This Mother's Day my special mama will have a fresh bunch to sit on her kitchen table. After everything she has done and continues to do for me, it really is the least I can do. And perhaps I'll resume the tradition and make sure there's a fresh bunch on my kitchen table every week too.
