Fresh flowers are always a treat, but they’re only short-lived. This year tell the kids you’d love a floral creation you can keep forever. Or why not make it with them to send to granny?
The Meri Meri studio have designed the most gorgeous floral garland, cunningly crafted from napkins, for you to make (or if you’d like it for yourself, make sure the kids and your partner get to read this blog!). We’ve also got lots of tips on how to make Mother’s Day the prettiest celebration of the year.

Make A Floral Fantastic Party
Transform the table
How about making a tablecloth from kraft paper, which the kids can paint or draw on for a unique look? Watercolors work well, place ‘blobs’ of color and blow with a straw to make awesome floral shapes. Lay the table with plates, napkins and cups with floral designs. We’ve got several beautifully designed and crafted ranges, take a look here.
Put paper flowers in a vase, like these. Or why not make some extra flowers when creating our garland and place on the table?

Food almost too pretty to eat
Mini sandwiches and cupcakes look delightful for a Mother’s Day party. Use cookie cutters to cut sandwiches into charming shapes. Make your cupcakes with stunning cupcake cases like our Flower Bouquet Cupcake Kit. Add toppers or swirl the frosting so they resemble flower petals, then place on a plate or cupcake stand to look like an edible bouquet!
No celebration is complete without a refreshing drink (plus kids love to make mocktails!). Here’s three of our favorites which Mums of all ages will love. They’re all made with just three ingredients or less:
- Peach mint mocktail. Sparkling peach soda, fresh mint and diced peaches. Yum, it’s like an alcohol-free Bellini.
- Mango-ginger mocktail. Ginger ale, mango juice and fresh lemon juice. Very invigorating!
- Pomegranate mimosa. Sparking apple juice and pomegranate juice. Fruity and delicious.
