For most of us, when you think of Mother’s Day, you usually think of your own mother and all the ways in which you would like to spoil her on this special day. We get so wrapped up in our thoughts and plans for our own mothers that we tend to forget all about our partner’s mother. While we celebrate our mothers and all the sacrifices they made for us, we need to remember the important role that our mother-in-law played in raising the person we love. So, on a day like this, there is only one thing to do – place a double flower order, pick up two very special gifts and split the day in two in order to celebrate two very special ladies.
Having the perfect Mother’s Day flowers delivered, choosing the ideal gift and honouring your own mother will most likely be a bit easier than doing the same for your mother-in-law. When browsing through the various flowers at your local or online florist, there are a number of things that will determine which flower arrangement you choose. Firstly, because you are buying two bouquets, you will need to plan your flower budget very well. If you are somewhat limited financially, then an online search for cheap flowers or discount flowers should reveal some of the most reasonably priced florists online and in your area.
Remember, when planning your budget, you need to calculate the values of the gifts and possibly a meal out. If everyone gets along well, you could make it a group activity and enjoy a picnic at the park, breakfast at a cosy coffee shop or lunch at a fine restaurant. Your choice will depend on how much you are able to spend and the preferences of the guests of honour.
To keep things fair, when choosing Mother’s Day flowers for your mother and mother-in-law, you should look for something similar but not the same. Don’t be lazy and order duplicate arrangements! They should each be well thought out and appropriate for the intended recipient. Make sure that they are approximately the same size so that one does not feel less or more important than the other.
Different flowers carry different price tags and it’s important to keep this in mind when making your selections. While one orchid could easily cost the same as a small bouquet of other cheaper flowers, it’s not a good idea to send a single stem to one mother and a bouquet to the other. They may have cost the same amount of money but it’s bound to be cause for discussion.
A safe option is to send your mother and mother-in-law similar bouquets that are made up of the same kind of flowers but in different colours. So, for example, if you send your mother pink carnations and roses, you can send your mother-in-law a bouquet of orange roses and carnations. You will be sending them both the same type of bouquet but in different colours. This is especially thoughtful if you make sure that each mother receives a bouquet of blooms in their favourite colour or colours that match a particular room in their home.
