Accessories to spruce up Mother’s Day flowers

When it comes to Mother’s Day, we all aim to make mum feel super special. For the most part, we do whatever it takes to get the perfect bunch of flowers as well as other special gifts. Mother’s Day is one of the busiest days for florists around the world. While you might notice plenty of people lined up inside flower shops, online florists also experience increased orders even though there is no visible queue. It is this great demand for fresh flowers that makes it so important to place your order early.

If you love spoiling mum with fresh flowers but you’d like to offer her something extra special, there are a number of ways to spruce things up. The kinds of accessories you choose for your Mother’s Day bouquet will depend on how much time you have available as well as your budget and mum’s personal preferences. One great way of adding sparkle is by applying glitter to the flowers. This is a rather delicate process and you might want to practice on some flowers from your garden at first. Once you have mastered the technique, you can then do the same on mum’s bouquet. If you are planning on adding glitter, you should have the florist deliver the flowers to your address rather than directly to mum. Keep the flowers in clean, fresh water and be careful not to store them in a cold area or near any heat sources.

If you want to add something personal to the bouquet, you can print a special photo of yourself with your mother. You might want to have the photo laminated in order to ensure that it does not get damaged. Attach the photo to the bouquet using a flower pick or a stylish peg.

Decorate the vase by simply wrapping it with a decorative ribbon. The ribbon can either match the colour scheme of the bouquet or you can look for ribbon with a message printed on it – like Happy Mother’s Day for example.

If you don’t plan on adding a vase to your flower order, you could even make your own. Use any waterproof container and decorate it with paint, paper or fabric. For something extra sentimental, you could use photos of yourself and mum as part of your decoupage design.

Sometimes, your florist will even include accessories like pretty flower picks. These come in various shapes and colours such as beautiful butterflies. Consider adding extras like luxury chocolates, perhaps a balloon, or another gift to make your flowers even more impressive.
