Last Sunday, my mum and I were invited to the Moonpig HQ for an event to celebrate Mother's Day. Hands up how many of you saw the words Mother's Day and panicked because you thought you had forgotten the day and haven't bought your Mother or Mother figure anything yet? You've got time, the actual day isn't until Sunday 31st March, panic over.

The event started with a talk about the history of Moonpig and who they are and what they do. Did you know that Moonpig is the number one online card and gift retailer? We've all bought a personalised card for someone from Moonpig at some point in our lives but did you also know that they do a range of gifts and flowers too?

We were split into groups of 15 and rotated around 3 different activities followed by afternoon tea. Our first activity was flower arranging. Moonpig offers a range of flowers and plants starting from as little as £19 and if you forget a birthday and need a last minute gift, they deliver flowers the next day. Not going to be in? They also do a range of letterbox flowers.

Before moving onto our second activity, we sat down for a spot of afternoon tea. Neither I nor my mum had been to an afternoon tea before so we were both very excited. Let's settle a debate, cream or jam first? I cut through the middle of the scone, put cream on one half, jam on the other and put both halves together.

Our penultimate activity was cocktail making with Mr Flavour. Fun fact, I work at a bar and my favourite thing to do is to make cocktails. We made a cocktail called Electricity and here is the recipe for it if any of you want to try it at home:

Electricity
40ml of lemon vodka
25ml of violet and lavender gomme 
25ml of lime juice 
75ml of cranberry juice

Our final activity for the day involved taking photos in a photo booth and creating our own Mother's Day card from Moonpig's Mother's Day card collection - My mum will probably kill me for sharing this but here is one of the photos we took in the photo booth:
