It’s been pretty busy in the Gilliflower workshop this Mother’s Day weekend.
And what a treat the workshop looked first thing on Friday after an early morning run to the flower wholesalers. I tell you, there’s really nothing more charming than walking into the workshop when it’s full of sweet scented stocks and radiant aqua roses. Busy we may have been, but stressed we were not. Glorious sunshine streamed in through the window whilst I put together the Mother’s Day bouquets jamming out to some cool funk and soul tunes. Bliss.
Delivering the bouquets to the deserving mummas of Colchester was equally as charming. Did you see the look of surprise on Mum’s face? It was a picture. Of course I don’t have favourites, I love all my flowers equally, but it was extra special delivering a bouquet to the Green Room Restaurant to lie in wait on a table as a sweet little aperitif to accompany a Mother’s Day lunch for one of my customer’s lovely mum.
Happy Mothering Sunday to all the mums of Colchester, and beyond. I hope your day was filled with spring sunshine, gifts and of course, flowers.
