74 Days to Mother's Day!

Abraham Lincoln once said., "All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother." Mothers are the epitome of love. On the second Sunday of May, we take a day to celebrate them.

My own Mother was not a fan of live flowers. She thought they were a waste of money. She loved the look but hated the fact that in a few days the bright blooms disappeared. Among other things, my Mother passed on her economic ways to me. I adore flowers- I love how they bring a smile to someone's face and make them feel so special. ChristieCreations' Blooming Bouquets solve the dilemma of having by making a beautiful forever fresh floral arrangement and a truly economic practical gift. My Mom would most definitely agree.

Kitchen Towel Blooming Bouquets combine kitchen towels, dishcloths, aprons, and more to create a stunning floral arrangement. Once the bouquet has been enjoyed, the "blooms" can be easily unrolled to reveal these kitchen basics. Mom can enjoy her gift everyday when she uses her kitchen towels, apron, and dishcloths.

Spa Pampering Blooming Bouquets feature high quality washcloths, bath poofs, inflatable bath pillows, spa products, manicure and pedicure tools and more to pamper that special woman in your life.

Last Mother's Day, ChristieCreations received several phone calls from Moms across the country that adored their unique gifts. Many of the bouquets are still on display in their homes because "they are too beautiful to take apart."

More raves for Mother's Day Blooming Bouquet gifts:

"Thank you for making my Mom's special day even more special."

"Mom loved it! She hasn't stopped talking about it and showing all of her friends."

"Mom adored her one of kind bouquet."

I know my own Mother who is smiling down from Heaven and would have loved to receive such a forever fresh floral arrangement. Each time I make a blooming bouquet I have to smile because she was the ultimate inspiration for the company.

Don't Forget Grandma! Gifts for the New Grandmother

ChristieCreations is always looking for new ideas on how we can improve our products. After a custom order for a Grandmother to be, we created a line of "For Grandma" bouquets with blankets, bibs, and booties to keep at Grandma's house. Of course we can include cute onesies and bibs that said "We love Grandma" and "What happens at Grandma's House, stays at Grandma's house." Why not treat the new Grandma to a gift of her own to celebrate her new grandchild!

Other ways to celebrate the new Grandmother at the baby shower include:

A engraved photo frame or photo album from the new baby.

A brag book for Grandma to carry in her purse to show all of her friends her new grandbaby!

A Grandma's on Duty Tool Belt including all the essential basics for baby: diapers, diaper rash cream, toy, pacifier, baby Tylenol, baby wipes, and more

A personalized t shirt with the new Grandma's name.

So while friends and family are spoiling the Mother to be with gifts- don't forget Grandma!
