Pick the perfect Mother’s Day flowers

Your mother is the first woman who will ever love you. Even before you are born, she is filled with love and she will move mountains to give you everything you want and need. Your mum is more than just the woman who brought you into the world, she is your teacher, doctor, friend, and everything in between. With all of this in mind, it’s important to make sure that you choose the right flowers for her.

If mum enjoys traditions, then there is nothing more fitting than a bouquet of carnations. Traditionally, pink carnations are worn to celebrate your mother if she is still alive. If she has already passed away, a white carnation is worn. So, when you send carnations for Mother’s Day, make sure that you send a pink bunch!

For mothers who are more on the modern side, you might like to spruce things up a bit by opting for a mixed bouquet of flowers or even a potted plant. One of the most elegant of all potted plants is an orchid. Not only are these flowers unique, but they have a way of transforming any room. They are available in various colours including white, pink, and even blue!

Some might think that orchids are difficult to care for because they require a certain amount of special care. They need specific potting mix rather than soil, they love humid environments, and they prefer indirect sunlight. If you are not sure about mum’s plant care skills, you could opt for a succulent instead. Succulents are easy to care for since they require little water and attention.

Finally, if none of these ideas are suitable for your mother, why not cater your floral gift to her preferences? Think about what she loves the most. You could start by looking for her favourite flowers. If they are not available, ask your florist for flowers in mum’s favourite colour. If you are able to find her favourite flowers in her favourite colour, then you have hit the jackpot!

Don’t forget to have your florist include something extra with your flower order. Luxury chocolates, a bottle of bubbly, or even a bright balloon are just some of the great gifts you can include. You don’t need to choose just one, of course. If you like more than one gift, you can add as many as you like to your flower order.
