What kind of flowers to get your mom for Mother's Day?
Every year around this time, people start panicking about what to get the most important woman in their lives. But never fear, we're here to help!
Let us break down all the perfect bouquets you can gift your mom this mother’s day:
It is only fitting to start this list with Carnations because these flowers started it all. In 1907, Anna Jarvis, the founder of Mother’s Day, sent 500 white carnations (her mother’s favorite flower) to every mother at her West Virginia congregation on the anniversary of her mother’s death. Moreover, carnations are among the longest lasting cut flowers that you can buy!
Coming in shades of white, pink, red, and sometimes even purple, peonies make a great flower arrangement for any mom out there. Peonies can grow considerably large, which means a bouquet of these blooms is certain to make a showy centerpiece.
Different colored tulips have different meanings. Purple tulips represent royalty, whereas red is for love. Pink represents affection and white is for cheerfulness.
That’s not all, there are so many varieties of tulips! Fringed, parrot, French, lily-fringed, and these are just off the top of our heads. Each of these varieties is as unique as mom. No matter what color or variety you choose, tulips are the quintessential spring flower, sure to bring your mom a bit of joy!
The orchids are for the trendy moms, moms who love fashion, and bold colors. If you’re wondering which color to get, try pink. Pink orchids represent elegance, poise, and femininity. Oh, and did we mention that orchids smell divine?
Lillies steal the show! Their striking, big flowers come in a variety of colors, soft and bold, so you can choose the one that is just right.
Pro tip: think about what your mom loves most. If she loves nature and being outdoors, then an arrangement with fresh flowers or plants might be a good choice. If she's more of a homebody, maybe an arrangement with colorful silk flowers would be better.
