Mother’s Day Flowers that Bloom Forever
Don’t get us wrong, we love a small hand-tied posy of wild flowers or a bunch of daffodils wrapped in tissue as a simple Mother’s Day gift, but how about something a little different this Mothering Sunday? We have our eyes on these everlasting and eternally stylish bouquets that will sit on the mantle, sideboard or bookshelf, offering a stunning display in the home for many years to come.
Possibly the most beautiful faux flowers we have ever seen! These felt blooms are designed and made by mother of 2 Yuki (a.k.a The Felt Florist) and really will be a thing of beauty in any room. These felt flowers are durable and sturdy – unlike fresh flowers that wilt, tear or fall apart – which means they really will last forever. These botanicals are made with wool blend felt that is originally designed and hand cut and placed on a wrapped wire stem. You can therefore bend each stem as you wish, to style the flowers in your bouquet or vase at home.

The crème de la crème of paper flowers come from The Green Vase (which are shipped in from New York). These exquisite hand made paper blooms are made by Livia Cetti, an artist, stylist and ex Style Ed at Martha Stewart Magazine and have graced the windows of Jo Malone and Tiffany & Co. no less. Each piece is inspired by the organic world and custom made by hand, crafted as an impressionistic gesture capturing the spirit of the flower, meaning that just like the real thing, no two will ever be exactly alike.

How amazing is this floral paper centrepiece? Made in collaboration with London based floral designer Hazel Gardiner, these Spring hued flowers and leaves are crafted from paper, tissue paper and paper coated with gold foil, and attached to wooden sticks to ensure they last for years and years (just don’t let them get rained on in our fabulous British summertime!). It comes with an easy to assemble flat-packed box, through which you can place the pre-made eco-friendly paper flowers and leaves. Blooming Lovely!
Bear with us. These are the not the dusty dried flowers of your great-grandmother’s home. These everlasting ‘Baked Blossoms’ are hand-made in Dorset and come in an array of modern, bold and bright colours that just POP. Each bunch features a mixture of dried and preserved flowers that have been painted, dyed or are natural in colour to produce eye catching bouquets. Delivered in printed paper with luxury ribbon, some are delivered in rustic vases and jars for instant display.
Tapping into the adult collector – and especially women – Lego have increased their floral offerings. We especially loved the Spring like flower bouquet from last year (see them here in our Mother’s Day gift Guide), each set includes elements from sustainable materials and a detailed booklet with instructions and further information on each flower. This year we have our eyes on these gorgeous, jolly sunflowers that will never wither come rain or shine.

Another brand offering plastic building bouquets and plants is Guda, which is compatible with Lego. We especially love this Phalaenopsis or ‘Moth Orchid’ flower which comes in its own pot. Although the real version is easily grown and blooms for a very long time – this one won’t need any watering!
