»Mother’s Day Trends

Looking for a special and unique way to treat mom this Mother’s day? The huntresses and our Chief Idea Hunter have put together the best trends for 2018 to show mom how special she is!

These ideas divert from the standard bouquet of flowers and instead are intended to last!

1. A Bouquet that will last!

6. Take mom to see the gorgeous Toronto Blooms

Like they always say, April Showers brings May Flowers. It’s May and the flowers are here, just in time for Mother’s Day (coincidence? I think not).

Cherry Blossoms in High Park

Take mom to see the insanely lovely Cherry Blossom’s in High Park. These Sakura trees were gifted to Canada from Japan and planted mostly in High Park. Every year in early May they blossom and create quite the sceptical. Take mom for a walk here to enjoy the beauty of blooms, you can spend the day here walking the whole park and set up a picnic at one of the many picnic tables, or arrive early to claim one of the available BBQ’s!

Allen Gardens

If Mother’s Day happens to be rainy, or you want to see a variety of plants, including a cactus room and an orchid room, head nowhere other than Allen Gardens. This free, massive green house offers beautiful views, with a bit less of a crowd.
