Unconventional Mother’s Day flowers

In just a few weeks we will be celebrating the most important woman or women in our lives. Like any other annual occasion, there are certain traditions. One of these traditions is to send fresh flowers to mum. If you are looking for something a bit more unconventional as far as Mother’s Day flowers are concerned, you’re in luck because you have plenty of options.

First identify the traditional options

Before you can start thinking about unusual Mother’s Day flowers, you need to think about all of the most popular blooms. The top choices include roses, carnations and lilies. The top colour for these bouquets is pink. Pastel pink is especially sought after because it expresses your affection and it is a beautifully feminine colour.

Something exotic

A bouquet with that exotic touch is sure to impress and surprise mum. Examples of flowers to look for include oriental lilies and orchids. Even a few stems will have a great impact and they can be paired with other blooms like roses and smaller filler flowers.

Mixing up the colours

Since pink and purple are usually considered conventional, you could mix it up by opting for colours like yellow and orange instead. You can still include other shades like deep purple and red. You can even add splashes of white here and there for even more variation in your Mother’s Day flowers.

Potted plants

For those who are looking for long-lasting Mother’s Day flowers, you might like to consider potted plants for mum. Rose plants, lilies, orchids and even succulents are available at various florists. Like fresh cut flowers, these plants are beautifully presented when they are delivered to her door.

Silk flowers

Silk blooms are excellent if you want Mother’s Day flowers that will last longer than any other. The key is to make sure that you choose high quality silk blooms. This ensures that they look as realistic as possible and they hold up very well for many years.

No matter what type of Mother’s Day flowers you choose, you should always pick something with mum in mind. Many florists offer extras like chocolates and balloons which are also worth considering. Your florist will also include a card for you to write your very own message.
