Flowers for Mother’s Day

Mother's DayFrom the earliest civilizations, we have been honoring our mothers. Around the globe, various traditions are observed as versions of Mother’s Day.

For instance in Ireland, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent; a throwback to “Mothering Sunday” which was a call to return to “mother church”. No one is sure when people started giving gifts to their mother on that day. In Thailand. Mother’s Day is celebrated on the birthday of the reigning queen, currently in August to celebrate Queen Siskrit. In Ethiopia, the day is observed with a large family feast and songs spanning multiple days.

Mother's DayMother’s Day in the United States has been a national holiday since 1914, with the cause championed by Anna Jarvis. Since that time, many countries have adopted a US-styled Mother’s Day, celebrating on the same day and giving gifts, flowers, and cards. Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, the UK, and India all mirror the America tradition. India only adopted the day a decade ago, and in a culture overwhelmed with festivals, has still managed to become exceptionally popular.

Mother's DayHere at home, Mother’s Day is one of the largest consumer holidays of the year; a fact that so bothered Anna Jarvis in her later years that she campaigned to have the day taken back off the calendar. At times in our history, political activists have used the day to stage marches and awareness campaigns regarding equal rights for women and children.

What Flowers to Get This Mother’s Day

Mother's DayWhat’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Mother’s Day? Probably a vase of flowers, a card, and some candy, right? These traditional symbols are a fun and easy way to celebrate the holiday, but you can certainly add more meaning to the day with your choice of Mother’s Day flowers and how they’re arranged.

Sending a Message with Flowers

As you may know, many flowers carry meaning beyond the emotions of “I love you,” “just because,” or “thanks.” If you’re looking to add some extra meaning to your Mother’s Day flowers, you might choose a bowl of beautiful lavender flowers.

Simply Lovely

Other meaningful flowers you may choose to give Mom this year include sunflowers, roses, carnations, or orchids. Each of these flowers carries meaning, such as love symbolized by roses and admiration symbolized by carnations.

How about a beautiful design of roses and calla lilies, arranged in an adorable pink ceramic purse? Tell your mom that you love and appreciate her with a gorgeous mixed bouquet. Make your gift even more special by choosing flowers in your mom’s favorite color.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

You can choose to celebrate Mother’s Day simply with a bouquet of flowers and a card, but you may also want to add a gift to the celebration. If you live in the same town as your mom and can visit her personally on Mother’s Day, you might consider taking her out to lunch.

If you’re often busy with family or you have a demanding job, maybe you don’t see your mom often enough even if you live in the same area. Choose a special restaurant for your Mother’s Day brunch. Or, to make things even more special, think about making a homemade meal for your mom to celebrate.

Moms always seem to know how to make our favorite foods, and nothing else ever comes close to those delicious recipes. Maybe it’s time to return the favor and try one of her recipes out on your own. Maybe you’ll try to make her famous spaghetti and meatballs, or perhaps you’ll try to make a cake just like she used to on your birthday. Maybe it won’t taste just like homemade, but at least it’ll be fun!

This year, Mother’s Day arrives on May 10, 2015. Order your flowers early and think about adding something fun to the occasion like breakfast in bed or a special Mother’s Day brunch. Let Walter Knoll Florist help make Mother’s Day truly memorable for Mom.
