A different Mother’s Day in 2020 – thanks to Covid-19

Mother’s Day 2020 will, just like Easter, go down in the history books. On Sunday May 10, it will be yet another celebration where, due to Covid-19 we don’t truly get to spend time hanging out together. There will be zoom hook ups; Skype a plenty and Face Time will be given a serious work out. Yes, we are getting more comfortable with camera lenses in our faces but let’s be honest – it’s not quite the same. Not quite what we want. Spare a thought for those Mums who live in aged care facilities that are still in complete lockdown. Let’s hope that Christmas will see things resume to normality – arguments round the table; too much food and presents we are likely to exchange on Boxing Day.

Mother’s Day is traditionally a time when we show Mum how much we care and, whilst I personally don’t believe a special day should have to exist for this humble showing of gratitude, this year will see people getting more creative in celebrating the love they feel for Mums all over Australia.

History of Mother’s Day in Australia

Mother’s Day in Australia was first celebrated in 1924, following the impact of losses of World War 1. Sydney woman, Janet Heyden, started the tradition after becoming concerned for the lonely, forgotten elderly mothers at Newington State Hospital where she regularly visited a friend.

When your thoughts go to your own Mum, please also spare a thought for those who have lost their mothers due to Covid-19; due to domestic violence or a serious health issue. Now it is more important than ever to think outside of your own immediate family and to practice kindness and thoughtfulness.

Flowers for Mother’s Day

While you are getting creative on how you will bring your family together for this special day you may also want to get creative with your flowers this year. I don’t mass produce flowers for Mother’s Day, or any other event for that matter. I pride myself in being a creative florist who likes to think outside the box and put together different looks that spread joy to all my clients.
