Flower colour choices for mum

If you are shopping for fresh blooms for Mother’s Day, you will need to choose the right bouquet. With so many flower colour options, it can be quite overwhelming and confusing. The colour or colours you choose will depend on several factors. These include the relationship you have with the recipient as well as her preferences. Here’s what you need to know about each colour choice.

Red blooms

Red is a popular flower colour for many occasions. Of course, red blooms are associated with passionate love. This means that they are perfect for your partner or spouse. Red roses, carnations or tulips will let your loved one know that you appreciate them and how much you love them.

Pink flowers

When sending blooms to your mother or mother-in-law, you should avoid a flower colour that can be considered romantic. So, instead of red, why not choose pink flowers? There are plenty of options out there including roses, tulips, carnations and even lilies. You can choose a single type of flower or a mixed bouquet.

White bouquets

If you want a flower colour that will represent the pure love that you have for your mother while reflecting her pure love for you, your best choice is a white bouquet. Now, you can select a single type of flower like carnations. Alternatively, you can send a bouquet of fragrant white lilies paired with roses or chrysanthemums.

Yellow arrangements

If you consider mum to be your best friend, yellow is the flower colour of choice. Yellow roses are particularly suitable for such close relationships. Other suitable blooms include sunflowers, daffodils and tulips. Remember, if you are planning on sending daffodils, you should make sure that they are not paired with any other blooms. This is because these cut stems release a kind of toxic latex substance in the vase water which will cause other blooms to perish prematurely.

Mixed designs

When in doubt, remember that you can never go wrong with a mixed bouquet. Not only are they bright and joyful, but they are also bursting with texture. Some bouquets even include Mother’s Day flower picks to help emphasize the theme of the bouquet.

Now that you know all about the best flower colour choices for Mother’s Day, it’s time to start shopping! While you’re at it, take a look around for extras like luxury chocolates, balloons and champagne. Take a moment to write a special message in the card your florist provides.
