Mother’s Day Flowers & Fran’s Chocolates

Mother's Day Flowers

For Mother’s Day … I shouldn’t … but I do… like to help Bill with ideas.  The simplest things to give are sometimes not obvious for him to think of.  When Bill has a great plan, the kids think he’s pretty cool.  That’s why I like to ….. but I shouldn’t.

Flowers and chocolates are the classic combination to give for any occasion.  Putting a simple twist on the idea can make it more special and personal. Find a few pretty containers and fill them with Mom’s favorite flowers.  Arrange the flowers by grouping the same ones together. Then top it off with her favorite chocolate truffles.

I look forward to these gifts again and again.

A great thing about simple flower arrangements is that they are easy for the kids to help out with and put together.   Each one could be moved to another part of the house, wherever Mom wants to enjoy it. .

Simply beautiful ranunculus, I could be quite content with just that.

Fran’s Chocolates have been a favorite of mine for 20+ years.  I remember going to the tiniest chocolate shop {about the size of a walk-in closet…maybe just a tad bigger} to buy some of the best chocolate truffles. Often times Fran Bigelow would be in the  back room making it.  Fran’s Chocolates have outgrown that space and expanded to three retail locations throughout the Seattle area.  Today, Fran Bigelow is very well known and is considered one of the best chocolatiers in the country. .

Fran’s Chocolates are made with the highest quality ingredients, hand made in small batches from start to finish.  The chocolate truffles are rich and creamy with a crispy thin outer shell. Their salted caramels are dipped twice in a special blend of chocolate made by Valrhona and carefully sprinkled with gray or smoked salt. Mother's Day, Fran's chocolates

The attention to detail is utmost from the start of the first ingredient to the beautiful hand-tied  satin ribbon bow on the package.

Fran’s Chocolates, truffles, smoked salt caramels and other confectionery are available at many specialty retail stores throughout the United States.  To find the best selection go online at Fran’s Chocolates or visit one of Fran’s Chocolates boutiques.

      So good to know we are neighbors Lynne! I hope your Mother’s Day was wonderful… I don’t think we could have asked for a sunnier/warm day than today. And the weather for rest of the week will be more sunshine. I will be in my garden this week.
