Dear Readers, have I got your back this Mother's Day or what? ;) We know the big day is coming up, and truthfully, one day isn't really going to make up for the fact hours of labour and years of teenage hell that we put our mother through but I like to think that every little thing counts right? And sending bouquets of Belgian chocolate dipped fruit is a very delicious way to say thankyou.
A few weeks ago I received the Pastel Berry Brilliance bouquet from Flowers by Fruit which had about 40 (I stopped counting and just started eating - sorry!) delicious enormous strawberries covered in white, strawberry and lemon flavoured Callebaut Belgian chocolate. I felt like I had hit the motherlode because you'll find me nose pressed up against the DJs chocolate dipped fruit counter buying myself a couple of chocolate dipped strawberries every time I go through the city. This bouquet is perfect for mums that know their chocolate and love their fruit dipped in the good stuff. Also if you order by 10am then they can deliver your bouquet within the same day!
Or you could just sit at home plucking off yummy little bits of chocolate covered fruit and then halfway realise how much your mother would have liked this. You can then pack up the remaining ones and recover them with the cellophane and then deliver them to her. I may or may not have done this...ho hum, is that a dog with a fluffy tail there? ;) My excuse is that I had to try it in order to test it out the chocolate...
