Fact: everyone loves receiving flowers. Especially mums.
And with Mother’s Day right around the corner (Sunday May 13 FYI, not that you’d forgotten…), what better way to redeem yourself from a year’s worth of skipped family dinners and missed phone calls than sending a bunch of fresh flowers straight to her door!
Whether it be your actual mum, or maybe a father, grandparent, aunty, uncle, friend or some other, celebrate the motherly figure in your life this Sunday with one of these small businesses who are saying goodbye to overpriced florist fees and hello to affordable, fresh daily blooms.
Go on, take your pick of the bunch!
When former wedding stylist and interior designer, Louise Reeves, saw a gap in the market for affordable flower delivery, Posy Supply Co was formed with the intention of rewriting the rules of the game. And rewrite the rules they did. Since 2015, the company has been delivering big with little bunches of love all across Sydney for only $30. Once again they are forgetting all the rules and will be delivering flowers on a Sunday (!) just for mum. They’ve put together three stunning options; a Mother’s Day Bouquet ($49), a Luxe Bouquet ($99), or a Potted Phalaenopsis Orchid in a custom Brass Planter ($54). With the added option of including a Posy Supply Co. Soy Wax Candle ($35) to any order, the team have guaranteed big love for mums across Sydney, without the hassle.
Posy Supply Co. is delivering on Mother’s Day. Pre-order now until Saturday 12th May, or until sold out.
Every day the team at Little Flowers drags themselves out of bed at an ungodly hour to gather the best blooms they can find, so you don’t have to. Day in, day out, their ethos of following the seasons and their instincts results in the cutest lil posy for you to send for just $30, including same-day delivery. The hand-curated posy of the day is wrapped in high-grade hessian (only the best for mum), secured with natural twine and finished with an environmentally-friendly personalised tag! Choose between a bunch of Little Flowers ($30) or Bigger Little Flowers ($55) for more than twice the flowers, but not twice the price – because spoiling mum shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg! Being one of the busiest periods, they traditionally sell out very early on the Friday before Mothers Day and often the Monday after as well, so get your orders in ASAP!
Little Flowers delivers Monday-Friday. With no set cutoff, orders can be made anytime until sold out.
Dismayed by the outrageous prices Sydney-siders have been subject to in the past just to send flowers that fade quickly, The Daily Bunch came up with a simple solution. Heading to the markets each morning to source the best flowers, the team create one unique design daily and upload a photo to their website and social media pages to be ordered and delivered that day. With this process you can be sure each flower, leaf and bud in every bunch was picked from the wholesale market the very same morning. No cool rooms, no fuss, just beautiful, fresh flowers delivered to your door. This Mother’s Day they are offering ‘Sweet Sorbet’ themed bouquets (think: mixed seasonal blooms in pretty pastel tones) in either medium ($55) or large ($75), including special Sunday delivery just for mum!
The Daily Bunch is delivering on Mother’s Day. Pre-order now until 5pm Friday 11th May, or until sold out.
The Little Posy Co. have put in the hard work for you this year and created something a little bit extra for the more-than deserving mum’s in our lives. The package on offer includes a stunning double posy, a personalised greeting card, and a breathtaking handmade ceramic bubble vase by Marmoset Found – all delivered to her door on the day for $125! If you’re wanting to spoil mum that little bit more (because you know she deserves it!) you can also add a large Gascoigne and King Wildflower candle for an extra $55. Pool your siblings together, or splurge on the woman who brought you into the world, we think this is going to be something she’ll remember for years to come.

Not your traditional florist, Poppy Rose is changing the flower scene is Brisbane. Reducing their footprint, Poppy Rose has said goodbye to hot pink cellophane and curly ribbons, opting for more sustainable (and way prettier IMO) Kraft brown recyclable paper and natural jute twine to bundle their flowers. This minimal waste philosophy has also allowed them to keep costs down. This year they will be delivering their Small ($50), Medium ($80) and Mega ($145) bunches on Mother’s Day. For only $25 you can also send a special Molten Candle Co x Late Night Crew candle in one of two scents. Choose Mama’s Home Cooking, with delicious top notes or orange and peach, creamy middle notes of cinnamon and clove and end notes of sweet maple syrup and vanilla. Or give her a night to remember with Mama’s Night Out, with sweet top notes of pear and lemon, middle notes of basil and mimosa and end notes of soothing jasmine and amber.

The Floral Society has kissed goodbye to florist favourites (think: cellophane, gerberas and teddy-bears) and we couldn’t be happier about it!

The daily floral arrangement can be ordered in Small ($40), Medium ($80) or Large ($120). They also have options for ‘Fancy Florals’ and a ‘Build Your Own Bunch’ feature to go that little bit further. Take your pick and guarantee mum a bloomin’ day!
