Baby's Breath Story: The modern Mother's Day flowers

Because mom’s worth every breath, Happy Bunch is excited to celebrate this coming Mother’s Day with our beautiful rainbow baby’s breath bouquet – or as we more affectionately call, bunches.

A little fun fact about Mother’s Day – the tradition of celebrating Mother’s Day originated from the United States, and dates back to the early 20th century. In 1905, peace activist Ann Jarvis campaigned to have the day recognized as an official holiday, in the year her mom passed away. It took her a good 5 years of hard work to have her proposal approved by the US Congress in 1911 . Since then, the tradition of celebrating awesome mothers has spread to many parts of the world, including sunny Singapore.

You can’t really go wrong with flowers on Mother’s day, can you? Besides celebrating the superwoman of your life, why not celebrate the other important women of your life as well? Be it for your wife who bore your kids for 9 months, your grandma, aunt, sister, best friend, or even your colleagues. It doesn’t really hurt to go the extra mile and send fresh flowers to them on Mother’s Day. Who doesn’t love a little sweet surprise, just because?
