Okay, okay, it's Monday. You have seven days to get your mom or wife the perfect bouquet for Mother's Day.
Here's how to do it, while also treating yourself to something shiny and new, stylish and probably out-of-this-world: Drop P40K (not a typo, and single-receipt purchases only) at Homme et Femme's universe of cool stores—Univers, Homme et Femme 8 Rockwell, Balenciaga 8 Rockwell, or Comme des Garcons—and get a flower arrangement from luxury bouquet architects Fiori di Marghi.
Good deal? Yes! Maybe? Let us tell you more about the floralscape. These are made under the flower imprint of Margarita Fores, beloved chef of Asia and liberator of chocolate crinkles, so you know they are chic and one-of-a-kind, down-to-earth but also swanky.
There are two to choose from, both of which highlight the carnation, a flower that denotes love and fascination. One is of a vibrant pink-and-violet motif and another is more delicate with a white-and-yellow combo.
The colors can guide your choice as the pink carnation is related to a mother's love, while white signify pure love. The bouquet is also adorned with crowns of succulents, which, you should know, is linked to timeless love.
Now, let us show you the clothes and shoes (that will be your gift to yourself for remembering to get flowers for your mom or wife):
Of course, the best thing to do would be to get something for her (because it is her day). Like these:
And if this clothes-and-flower grab is not enough to entice you, they're throwing in a 30-percent discount on a box of limited edition macarons or chocolate-covered macarons from Ladurée.
For Mother's Day, the French luxury patisserie curates a pairing of orange blossom and rose petals inspired by garden blooms. The flavors are derived from the white flowers of Moroccan bitter orange trees and Damask roses (we've tried them for you—they taste subtle and expensive).
The entire endeavor is appropriately called “Merci, Mon Maman,” which is French for “Thank you, my mom.” Whether you shop for yourself or also include her, a clutch of flowers is a solid way of showing your gratitude. (Just don't show her the bill.)
Merci, Mon Maman runs from May 6 to 13, 2018. Univers and Comme des Garcons is at One Rockwell, Makati. Homme et Femme, Balenciaga, and Laduree is at 8 Rockwell, Makati.
