FOR MUMS WHO run around all day trying to keep the house in order (like the Lynette Scavo in past seasons of Desperate Housewives), Oscar Floral Workshop (Harbour City, 29563282) recommends a potted plant and flower arrangements. On the top are four types of flowers - cytisus, cymbidium, tulip and nelumbo - and at the base are fittonia, caladium, ficus, euonymus, eucalyptus and dianthus. According to the folks at Oscar, the flowers, especially the cymbidium, all symbolise 'endurance'. The pot base is potted, so the plant will continue to grow even after the flowers are gone. The arrangement requires tender loving care and costs $900 to $1,000, depending on the flowers. Working mums (like the Lynette Scavo of the new season) would be delighted to have this arrangement from Armani Fiori (25327766) sent to her office on Friday in anticipation of the Mother's Day weekend. The trend this year is to have a clean and simple colour theme. This bouquet is all about pink, featuring callalily, ranunculus and peony, complemented with steelgrass and cordyline leaves (the floral arrangement costs $1,200, or $1,700 with vase included). For the socialite mom who has it all, nothing beats a surprise. Inside this gift box from agnes b. fleuriste ($780, Causeway Bay, 28951300; Kowloon Tong, 22658388; or order online www.agnesb-fleuriste.com ) is a palette of carnation, achillea and eustoma - a signature combination for Mother's Day. Other gift box designs and flowers are also available at agnes b. fleuriste.
