Mothers deserve the utmost respect and what better way to show you care than to send her a beautiful flower arrangement this Mother’s Day? Choosing the right flowers for your mother, mother-in-law, step-mother, or wife can sometimes be tricky, but with our advice, gifting flowers will be easy. Discover different ways to send flower bouquets and arrangements, and show how much she is loved on Mother’s Day.
If your mother is the traditional type, she will appreciate a bouquet of pink carnations as these are the flowers most associated with Mother’s Day. Same day flower delivery is always a great choice for carnations as it ensures the flowers arrive on time and as fresh as possible. Pink carnations have become known as flowers to gift to mothers as it is said that these flowers grew from the Virgin Mary’s tears as Jesus died on the cross. White carnations are traditionally gifted when somebody loses their mother or are lain on the graves of mothers on Mother’s Day.
It isn’t always possible to be with your mother on Mother’s Day, but if you can, do. Nothing will make her happier than receiving flowers from her child in person. Surprise your mother with a bouquet of spring daffodils, flowers that are very much associated with Mother’s Day in the UK. It is also a nice gesture to have your children give your mother flowers to, so make sure you purchase some small posies for your children to give when they arrive at Grandma’s house.
Of course, any mother will assure you that a bouquet of beautiful flowers is more than generous, but why not make the day extra special by accompanying your flowers with a sweet present? Many florists provide the option of choosing a bottle of wine or a box of chocolates to send with your flowers, and this special extra is certain to be appreciated by your mother.
If you are buying flowers for your wife this Mother’s Day, think about choosing the same flowers that you had on your wedding day. This is a romantic gesture that shows you are grateful that the mother of your children is in your life and will mean more than a generic bouquet of flowers. Get the kids in on the act and order smaller versions of the flowers for them to give to your wife.
If your budget will allow, send multiple arrangements of flowers throughout the day to make the occasion truly special. Arrange for delivery to their home, their place of work or while you are out, treating them to a meal on Mother’s Day. This is the perfect gift for someone who adores flowers and will be a moment they will never forget.
Mother’s Day in the UK falls in spring, which is perhaps why daffodils are a popular flower to gift on this day. Rather than send a bouquet of flowers cut, consider gifting bulbs in a pretty container so they can enjoy the flowers for longer. You can plant the flowers yourself after selecting an appropriate container, or you can make life easier by purchasing the bulbs already planted and then having them delivered for the big day.
However, you choose to show your mother how much you care, remember that it is not the size of the bouquet that counts, but the thought and effort that has gone into choosing the right bouquet.
