In celebration of Mother’s Day right around the corner, here is just a few of THORN floral’s favourite Mama wedding moments. Grab a tissue!

Let’s honour all those loving, patient, hustling, sleep deprived Mama’s of the world! They deserve more love, admiration + appreciation than words can offer. These strong women did give us life after all! Go give your Mother the biggest hug, say ‘I love you’ + acknowledge the sacrifices made in honour of your well being. If not your birth Mom, whomever is a considered a Mother figure in your life. Voice your appreciation, because it’s a crazy world out there – It sure is helpful to have a bad ass, female role model cheering you along the way!

Let me boast about my Lithuanian Mama real quick – She’s beyond amazing! That women has offered nothing but life-long support, love, guidance  + understanding since the moment I was born.  She knows it as well as I do – opening THORN floral was an adolescent dream of mine. A dream which may not have come true without her.  From my Mother I inherited her loving character, hard-work ethic + a few peculiar qualities that make us our own unique ladies. What I didn’t inherit was her sense of the accounting process – but luckily she pops by THORN to tend to the books. For that (along with, everything else) I am forever grateful, Mom!

THORN floral is about to be open for our 2nd ever Mother’s Day. Last year I was still mid renovations + shop set up, but the flower cooler had made it into the building already – so I did a pop up market! It was a blooming success, since we totally sold out mid afternoon the big day. Even better than our first Mom Day – THORN floral will be jam packed with funky florals, fresh plants + locally made gifts so you can spoil a well-loved lady! Back by popular demand, THORN will be also hosting a combo workshop (Terrarium + Vase Styling) this May too!  Click here to learn more about our upcoming class on Sat. May 26/18. (Hint, hint – great Mother’s Day gift idea + fun gals day! )
