Stacey Solomon recalls all-time favorite Mother’s Day – at the Columbia Road Flower Market | Celebrity News | Showbiz and television
Located in East London, the outdoor market is considered a flower lover’s paradise – brimming with countless varieties of beautiful flowers.
And it was the combination of this beautiful setting, being with partner Joe Swash, and knowing that their first baby together was imminent that made the day so special.
The Loose Women star, who gave birth to Rex just six weeks later, said: ‘It was one of my favorite times, spending time together as a family, walking around looking at all the flowers.
Now the 32-year-old is set to enjoy her first Mother’s Day with baby Rose, who was born in October last year.
Rose and Rex will join Stacey’s older children – Zachary, 13, and Leighton, nine – in what will be her biggest Mother’s Sunday yet.
Stacey said: “Obviously the best thing…is spending time with your kids.”
But it’s handmade gifts rather than ready-made gifts that matter most to the TV presenter.
The proud mum, who attended the Amazon Handmade pop-up in London’s Soho, added: ‘My ultimate relaxation is getting stuck into arts and crafts projects with the kids – it fills me with joy !
“Last Valentine’s Day, we made a plate for Joe with all our fingerprints on it. These are the handmade little gifts that we treasure forever – I have stacks of those handprint cards the kids made in school and nursery.
While visiting the temporary shop, Stacey tried her hand at making a macrame hanger with the skilled artisans who sell through the online retailer.
The pop-up was opened to launch the Amazon Handmade pocket money range – a selection of unique and personalized gifts under £7 – and free creative workshops will be held there on March 9 and 10.
Stacey added: “I’ve always bought special gifts from Amazon Handmade, so I’m really excited to help launch the new Pocket Money range.
“I love that the kids can get involved in choosing something for their mum this year, rather than a partner or parent remembering at 9 p.m. the night before.
“Pocket money these days goes a lot further than when I was a kid. I used to save my lunch money to get a roll of crisps.
