Say it with flowers

For Mother’s Day (Sunday 27 March) we have a beautiful selection of blooms to make that special someone smile. Whether you choose one of the stunning new wrap-free bouquets from Waitrose Florist, or the pretty Bloom Bouquet that will be available in our shops, we have lots of options to suit everyone’s floral taste.

Flowers are always a lovely addition around the house, but especially in spring – as we head out of the gloom of winter, their pops of colour really give a glimpse of sunnier days ahead. Our two new wrap-free bouquets, including this Calla Lily Bouquet, use leaves to protect the flowers, rather than cellophane wrap. With subtle hints of purples and pinks, they’d both make great Mother’s Day gifts. The No.1 Orchid Bouquet is also ideal – the striking mix of blooms includes cerise vanda orchids, pink and cream marossa and dividend roses and apricot lisianthus.”

No matter what age you are

Celebrations always call for cake, so for your next special occasion why not try one of the latest additions to the Waitrose Entertaining range? Launching in March, the Space Galaxy Cake would brighten any children’s party, while our Cappuccino Triple Layer Cake is a coffee-lover’s dream, and utterly delicious. Last but not least, Chocolate Stars Cupcakes are great for birthday celebrations – no matter the age! All are designed and made exclusively for Waitrose Entertaining by the wonderful Fiona Cairns bakery.

“Searches on waitrose.com for ‘celebration cake’ are already up by 35% compared to last year, so we’re delighted to be adding some beautiful new cakes to our Waitrose Entertaining selection, including some brilliant designs for kids. We’ve seen space, galaxy and astronauts as a prominent trend across social media, so we’re really excited about the fun Space Galaxy Cake.”
