This year Mothering Sunday is on Sunday March 6th3 Facts on why we celebrate Mother's Day
- Mothering Sunday changes date every year because it is linked to Easter. It is precisely 3 weeks before Easter Sunday and so can take place in March or April. This year is particularly early - 6th March.
- It was originally a time for people to get back together. People returned to their Mother Church to attend services and it became a tradition for young people in service to return from the big house to return to their homes to see their mums and take a gift (often a nosegay - a small posy of flowers)
- Traditionally, people fasted during Lent and cut out all sorts of sweets and meats. However, on Mothering Sunday this was lifted and the traditional Simnel Cake was eaten at teatime on this day. A Simnel cake is a light fruit cake covered with a layer of marzipan and with a layer of marzipan baked into the middle of the cake.
This year we've got our largest (and loveliest) selection of British Flowers you can send you Mum! - We believe that we really do have something for everyone - to suit all budgets and tastes! Thanks to Dewsall Court for letting us take these piccies in their stunning venue!
