Moederdag – Bloemendag
In the Netherlands, Mother’s Day was introduced in 1910 by the Dutch branch of the Salvation Army.
In 1925, the Royal Dutch Society for Horticulture and Botany, a group protecting the interest of Dutch florists, seeing the success enjoyed by florists in the USA, started working together to promote the holiday.
In the 1930s and 1940’s the tradition of giving “Mother’s Day cakes” as gifts in hospitals, to the Dutch Queen and to your mother, became popular.
No matter the origin the Dutch, like the rest of the world, enjoy honouring the women in their lives who have filled the role of Mother – be they grandmothers, godmothers, aunts or mothers.
Celebrate the ladies that rock your world with a breakfast or lunch at Dutchies on Mother’s Day. There will be delectable specials and all Mum’s will get a glass of bubbly.
Please remember to book!
Take a look at these beautiful paintings of Mothers by Dutch painters.
