Mothering Sunday 2020 - Gifting With a Purpose

Mothering Sunday is fast approaching and the shelves are becoming adorned with mass produced gifts for our real-life superheroes. But is a stuffed teddy bear really what Mum wishes for this Mothering Sunday?

Give a gift with purpose this year, something built to last and just as special as she is. Whether the flowers are home grown or picked up from your local florist.

Our Black Regal Peacock Etruscan Jug makes the perfect vessel for your spring-time blooms and is something that can be used for years to come as a striking centrepiece. Handcrafted at our home, Middleport Pottery, and crafted with love by our artisans who have been decorating wares with traditional tissue transfer since it began in 1851.

Our collection of Jugs, whether it be decorated in Black Regal Peacock, Calico or Dark Blue Felicity, are all decorated with the same skilled hands, imbued with the same tacit artistry…after all, only the best will do for Mum.

When choosing blooms for your Burleigh jugs, try to select colours that complement or contrast your selected pattern.

Bright pinks and purple are a firm favourite in our Black Regal Peacock pieces, where whites and blues complement the bold hues of Calico.


Flowers not for your Mum?
Alternatively, why not pencil in some quality time for you both with a delicious homemade afternoon tea, served on all her favourite Burleigh pieces.

Sweet treats are an essential for any afternoon tea. Start with your Mum’s favourite array of cakes, two different flavours allows for variety without adding in too much choice and of course it isn’t an afternoon tea without finger sandwiches ….

Here at Burleigh we are firm believers that teapots make a fantastic cocktail holder too. We love the idea of creating a fruity punch or filling up your teapot with a gin cocktail to add an extra twist. It is a day to celebrate, after all!

At Burleigh we are committed to the design, provenance and authenticity of our products and want to help you find a meaningful sustainable gift. Shop more of our gifting collection here.
