With Mother-in-Law Day fast approaching, let us help you to choose the best flowers!
Yes, October 25th really is a day set aside for your mother-in-law. And although some may question why she needs a day separate from Mother’s Day, we know the answer. The mother-in-law relationship represents a dynamic all its own – from fun, to practical to loving, your mother-by-marriage is part of your life – so why not celebrate her for everything she brings?
Flowers give you many ways to express sentiments and emotions. The flowers themselves have symbolic meanings many are not aware of, but allow you to send a type of “floral message” to the recipient. For instance, pink carnations represent the classic view of motherhood, and as such are the most-sent bloom on days like this. But if you want to better convey your mother-in-laws personality, feel free to get creative! If she is elegant and refined, the calla lily is a more sophisticated symbol of motherhood; when paired with blue hydrangea (heartfelt emotion) and white roses (beauty), this floral bouquet makes a striking statement.
There are other flowers that might be great ways to tell her how you feel. If she brings joy and smiles wherever she goes, gerbera daisies or sunflowers fit her perfectly. If she gives great advice, then a bouquet of purple irises will honor her wisdom. For a mother-in-law who exudes mature charm and refinement, the orchid is the flower of choice.
This special relationship was not one you chose, yet can be one of the most influential and meaningful ones in your life. At Walter Knoll Florist, we’d like to do our part. With so many St. Louis area locations, it’s easy to have one of our experts help you choose the best expression of respect and admiration; sure to let your mother-in-law know how much you value her. Remember, October 25th is the day!
