Mother’s Day is celebrated differently in various parts of the world but one thing is always true – this is a day to love, spoil, support and pamper mum! Fresh flowers are the most popular gift for Mother’s Day along with taking care of the chores and making mum feel like royalty for the entire day. Of course, many people feel like flowers are not quite as personal as they should be. So, here are some tips to help you personalise your Mother’s Day flower delivery.
First things first, you will need to choose the perfect blooms for her. If you know that she loves a particular type of flower, then this is a good place to start. You can ask your florist about Mother’s Day flower arrangements that include or consist solely of her favourites. It’s also worth considering her favourite colour. You can either choose a bouquet in her favourite colour or, if you really want to make an impression, buy a bouquet of her favourite flowers in her favourite colour! For example, if mum loves roses and she likes the colour pink, then a bouquet of pink roses will make the most thoughtful and personal gift for her.
Include a note
Florists always allow you to include a personal message with each fresh flower delivery. Now is your chance to let mum know how you feel and how much you appreciate her. Sure, you could write something generic but, why not invest a bit more time and effort? Take a moment to consider what your mother means to you and imagine how you would feel if she was no longer around. Now put your love and gratitude into words!
The beauty of a flower arrangement is not only determined by the blooms. The vase will play a significant role. Fortunately, there are several ways in which you can make mum smile with a personalised vase. Decoupage with family photos is one idea. You can cover an old vase or waterproof container with your most significant memories over the years. Alternatively, you can look for a plain, cylindrical glass vase and cover it with a wooden sheath or place it inside a larger wooden vase. This wooden vase can be engraved with an image or message just for her. For example, you can draw a heart and write ‘I love you Mum’ on the wooden vase. You may not be able to place the fresh flowers directly inside the vase because it will cause the wood to deteriorate, but it can be used for artificial flowers, dried flower arrangements and you can place a smaller vase inside if you have your heart set of fresh blooms.
These are some easy ideas to make your Mother’s Day flowers a truly personal gift for her. Remember that there is no gift greater than your time so, make sure that you spend some extra time with mum on this day to make her feel super special!
