Mother’s Day Fruit Basket: A special gift for mom that’s delicious too!

This Mother’s Day, instead of the traditional flower bouquet, gift mom with a blooming fruit basket. No matter how old her children get, mom will always appreciate a handmade gift over a store-bought one. Choose your mom’s favorites fruits to personalize the arrangement just for her.

If you’re having a Mother’s Day brunch in mom’s honor, a Blooming Fruit Basket makes a wonderful centerpiece.
