The New Flower Power: Alternative Mother’s Day Gifts

If you’re a Brit then you’ve already celebrated Mother’s Day this year but for the US, and many other countries across the world, Mother’s Day is this Sunday 14th May. To celebrate, we’ve called upon one of the coolest florists in New York City, Kelsie Hayes, the ex-designer and now owner of the fashion pack’s favourite floral-outpost, the PopUpFlorist. Below Kelsie showcases three alternative ways to package your blooms and impress the most important woman in your life… your mother, of course!

Box of Blooms

“Big bouquets are nice, but a simple and sweet sentiment goes a long way. Forego the over the top bouquet for a colourful mini arrangement that Mom can enjoy for herself.”

Say It with a Succulent

“Opt to give your mom a touch of green with a cute succulent or cactus. These are perfect for a desk or vanity, and are easy to maintain!”

Bloom Bag

“At Popup Florist we always have our eye on cool floral adorned accessories. This bag (we may need it for our selves) would make the perfect combo with a sweet bouquet of flowers.”
