What to do this weekend: Floral Jamming

Mother's Day is pretty much synonymous with flowers and while my mother loves flowers just as much as the next, I thought I'd do something a little different this year. Instead of going to the florist and letting them do all the heavy lifting, this year, I treated my mother to flower jamming (which is really a fancy way of saying flower arranging) and had a blast! It not only gave us quality time mother-daughter time, we also left with a new skill and a beautiful bouquet of flowers for HKD 480 that would have easily cost double the price if I had bought it from one of those fancy florists. Plus we all know that any present is better when you're the one who made it. Just look at all the macaroni art she's still kept from when you were 5. 

There are a couple places where you can go flower jamming in Hong Kong, but the one we went to was Blush.  We had a wonderful time there - it was a very private session and the instructor was very insightful and friendly, stepping in when you needed assistance while giving you enough space to do your magic.   However, I've also heard great things about Tallensia Floral Art if you're looking for an alternative. Otherwise, you could always DIY at home by following this youtube video or this skillshare class, which even incorporates fruits and vegetables (a bouquet with swiss chard?! I'm definitely intrigued! Do report back if you end up making a vegetable bouquet!). 

And last but not least, for all the mothers out there, a very happy Mother's Day! 

PS - This also makes for a great activity if you're planning a bridal shower! Champagne, flower crowns and quality girl time? I can't think of anything more (#insta)perfect.

  1. The complete start to finish experience of Same Day Delivery Flowers was perfect. She is extremely friendly, service oriented, and responsive to emails & phone calls. Even with a big event they were planning for one evening she still managed to take care of my one arrangement.
