Flower arranging tips for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is fast approaching and now is the time to start making plans. If you would like to present mum with a special bouquet with a personal touch, you could always put those creative skills to use and arrange a bouquet yourself. If you are new to flower arranging, here are some important tips to help you through.

Budget planning

The first point to consider is your budget. Each type of flower has a different price per stem which means that you need to consider your overall budget before selecting the types of flowers you wish to use. Foliage is great for filling up the bouquet and will generally cost less than flowers. Of course, you don’t want to use too much greenery or it will look like you were trying too hard to save money.

Seasonal blooms

As for the choice of flowers, you will be happy to know that there are plenty of varieties in bloom this time of year. Seasonal flowers will be more readily available locally which means that they do not need to be grown in greenhouses or imported and this means that they will cost less. So before you begin flower arranging, you should do some research about the flowers that are currently blooming in your region.

Her preferences

If you want to make your arrangement truly unique and special, you should consider mum’s favourite flowers or at least her favourite colour. That way, she will notice that you took the time to really think and plan when doing your flower arranging.

The right size

Consider where mum might put her bouquet on display. If she is still very busy at work, she might like to keep it at her work place. If she prefers brightening up her home, her living room might be the perfect spot. Keep this in mind when it comes to determining the size of the bouquet. Make sure that it’s not too big or small for the space.

Order early

Mother’s Day is a busy time for all florists. So, make sure that you get your flower order in early and give yourself enough time to do your best when flower arranging. You will also need to pick out the perfect vase or buy some decorative paper to wrap the bouquet in.

With all of these flower arranging tips in mind, you will be able to create a meaningful and memorable bouquet just for her. Don’t forget to include a special card with a sincere message inside to let her know how much you care.
