How to Choose the Best Flowers for Mother’s Day

Posted on May 01, 2021 by Andrea Forsberg

Mother’s Day is the one day a year we set aside to acknowledge the immeasurable impact that mothers have on our lives. This is a day we honor our own mother, other women who are knocking the mom thing out of the park, and those women who have stepped in to nurture us in the times we needed it most. So how do you choose the best gift for your mom, wife, sister, grandma, friend, teacher, mother-in-law, or mentor? We may be a bit biased, but there is nothing quite like flowers to put a smile on a woman’s face and let her know how much you cherish and appreciate her. The following tips can help you choose just the right flowers for the women in your life.


Make It Personal


Make sure to let your mother know you put some thought into your flowers by choosing a floral gift that matches her personality. Does she have a more modern vibe or a more casual one? Does she have a favorite flower? What’s her favorite color? Her decorating style? Besides an abundance of fresh-cut flowers and blooming indoor plants, we also have outdoor hanging plants such as fuchsia and gardening plants for those moms who love their hands in the dirt. A gift of potted rosemary will be a reminder of your love every time she glances at the window and when she adds it to her cooking.


What to Do If You Don’t Know What She Likes


Sometimes it’s hard to narrow down what your mom would like, and if you’re sending Mother’s Day flowers to a colleague, you may not know their taste in flowers or their décor style. Thankfully, the experts at Flower Works can create the perfect floral arrangement to match your needs using some tried-and-true flower choices such as roses or tulips. Lilies, orchids, and Gerber daisies are also top-rated floral options for honoring the special women in your life.


Go Above and Beyond


Moms love getting flowers. They add an immediate natural beauty to any space and are an item she seldom buys for herself, so make her flowers extra special. Pick up a large mixed bouquet of colorful spring flowers, add a personal handwritten note, and deliver them yourself. You’ll enjoy being there to see the smile on her face when she receives your gift.


If you can’t be there in person, you can still make your gift extra special by choosing flowers that symbolize the emotions you want to convey. The staff at Flower Works can help you choose just the right flowers to voice your feelings. Consider flowers such as the lily, the symbol of motherhood; roses, the time-honored symbol of love; and tulips, representing perfect love.
