The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in America. She then began a campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the United States. Although she was successful in 1914, she was already disappointed with its commercialization by the 1920′s. Jarvis’ holiday was adopted by other countries and it is now celebrated all over the world. In this tradition, each person offers a gift, card, or remembrance toward their mothers, grandmothers, and/ or maternal figure on mother’s day.
We have the most lovely and beautiful selection of gifts for Mother’s this weekend. Planted baskets for the green fingered, fresh spring flowers, potted Phalaenopsis Orchid plants in an array of colours, a large selection of vases, pots and baskets, and an extended range of scented candles from Country Candles. We now have in stock not only the popular tins but also glass votive’s and diffuser’s to choose from. A lot of our fresh cut flowers and plants are British grown and the candles are made in Devises, Wiltshire.

Pot Pourri is now a sending member only of Interflora. This means that you can still use us to place your order for flowers for national and international delivery but orders placed through Interflora for delivery in Chiswick London W4 will no longer be executed by ourselves. They will be made up from other florists in the surrounding area.
We can still process all orders placed through Pot Pourri Flowers for national and international delivery using our expert guidance on the best selection to send.
We have therefore widened our delivery belt covering more of the surrounding areas to Chiswick delivering flowers throughout the day. We can even deliver our beautiful bouquets that bit further on those days we are quieter. It’s always worth a try by giving us a call 020 8994 2404 / 5045.
To ensure your order for flowers is delivered by Pot Pourri, please place your order by telephone 020 8994 2404 / 5045 or use our online store potpourriflowers.co.uk/shop

Did you know we carry a really good range of greetings cards? From the funnies right through to prints of hand painted images and pressed flowers. Some local artists and suppliers. Card prices start from £2.95 and can be purchased with or without flowers.
Maria Perrone Cards will make a long-lasting impression on a friend or loved one. These unique designs are printed on the most exquiste Magnani paper from Tuscany in Italy. Produced since 1404, this is the very paper used by many renaissance artists, and Napoleon chose it for his wedding invitations.

A Burns supper is a celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns, author of many Scots poems. The suppers are normally held on or near the poet’s birthday, 25 January, sometimes also known as Robert Burns Day or Burns Night, although they may in principle be held at any time of the year.
Burns’ suppers are most common in Scotland and Northern Ireland but occur wherever there are Burns Clubs, Scottish Societies, expatriate Scots, or aficionados of Burns’ poetry. There is a particularly strong tradition of them in southern New Zealand’s main city Dunedin, of which Burns’ nephew Thomas Burns was a founding father.
Following the Scottish theme we have created this ‘Scots’ inspired bouquet for the ocassion. White Roses, Lilac and blossom with ‘Super Nova’ blue thistle and Aconitum make up this beautiful bouquet befitting of such a great man.
If you’re celebrating, don’t forget to add that extra special touch of flowers and have a great time!
