Mother’s Special Day

Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world. Here in the U.S. it is celebrated May 13, 2018.Time to start thinking of what beautiful floral arrangement to give mom for all she’s done for you.

Classic, smart, sophisticated: If these words describe your mom to a T, then the rose is for her. The rose can also mean different things depending on which color bloom you choose. For instance, yellow roses represent friendship, while pink roses mean “appreciation and admiration.”

Much like roses, tulips come in different colors, each with its own meaning. Purple tulips represent royalty, and pink tulips mean “caring.”

If your mom is high-energy, a joy to be around, a major source of inspiration for you, then grab her a bouquet of lilies. Stargazer lilies are perfect for ambitious moms, day lilies represent enthusiasm, Casablanca lilies mean “celebration” and calla lilies are the go-to for regal mamas.

Peonies may not be one of the most common flowers for Mother’s Day (they’re more popular for weddings), but they sure are beautiful. The Society of American Florists says peonies represent healing, but Teleflora explains that they also signify honor and richness.

Imaginative, quirky, funny, trendsetter: If any of these words describe your mom, then her floral equivalent is the orchid. Technically, the orchid means “delicate beauty” — you’re probably the best judge of whether your mom would be thrilled or pissed by that comparison.

We see these flowers everywhere, but did you have any idea this is what they’re called? These are alstroemerias, and they’re perfect for moms who are poised, refined, passionate and love surprises. Alstroemeria means “aspiring.”

Last but not least, the carnation: the flower that symbolizes love, which explains that pink carnations in particular mean “a mother’s undying, eternal love.”
