May - It's time to say Happy Mother's Day!

We all love our mums and now it's time to show them! Let us help you shower your mum with flowers this year!

We can't believe May is here already! It feels like our second busiest month of the year has arrived more quickly than usual thanks to the school holidays, Easter and Anzac Day, so now it's action stations! Mothers have been celebrated for thousands of years, dating back to the ancient annual spring festivals held by the Greeks and Romans. While festivities have certainly changed, one thing remains the same, Mother's Day gives us all an opportunity to honour our mothers for giving us life and raising and supporting us.

We've been very busy getting organised for Mother's Day, preparing boxes, vases and containers, tying bows, unpacking wrapping paper, stocking up the cards and flower food….all so that you can give your Mum something extra special this year. Hopefully you've all had a chance to check out our Mother's Day display. This year we've made our very own moss letters to spell out how much we love our mums. It has brought lots of joy to Jamison shoppers, especially the little ones who get so excited to see the 'I love Mum' sign taking pride of place out the front.

We've got lots of special arrangements planned for Mother's Day this year. Does your mum love roses? Well you're in luck because we're bringing back our customer favourite from last year! We'll be decorating lots of gorgeous hurricane vases with ribbon and filling them with coloured premium roses. We'll also have lots of lovely tulips and orchids and even a chrysanthemum or two!! We've collected some beautiful containers just for mum, including ceramic and tin pots, baskets and hessian covered cube vases, and we'll even be decorating a tin can or two. There'll also be a great selection of potted plants to choose from including cyclamens and phalaenopsis orchids.

We're very excited that the budding florists who've attended our flower school will be able to try out some of their new skills this Mother's Day. Our night courses are proving very popular and we're all having lots of fun. We've been so impressed with the gorgeous flower arrangements our students have made so far. Flower school will continue in May and June, make sure you give us a call on 6251 7799 if you're interested in joining us. There's more information about the courses on our website.

As the weather gets cooler we'll be bidding a fond farewell to some of our favourite flowers including hydrangeas and dahlias. We've had some of the most beautiful hydrangeas this year, from crisp white and bright purple to the gorgeous antique green. And it has simply been impossible to pick a favourite dahlia from the red, pink and peach blooms. Luckily the scent of the hyacinths will soften the blow, bring on the bulbs!

Before we go we have to say congratulations to our April 'flowers for your birthday' competition winner. Erin Emmery will receive a bunch of daisies, which represent innocence and youth.

Wishing every mum a fantastic Mother's Day, enjoy your flowers and breakfast in bed!

Love Rosie
