How to Choose the Best Flowers for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is a holiday that revolves around sentiments. It is an occasion to show our appreciation for one of the most important women in our lives. Many, as was done throughout history, traditionally, choose flowers to express themselves. There are a wide variety of different blooms, each with its own meaning and significance. You can do a colorful blend or a bouquet of a specific one (be sure to match them the vase!). Incorporating your mother’s favorite flower (and color!) is always a clever addition, however, weaving it with heartfelt symbolic thought can make your gift that much more special.

 

The History of Flowers and Mothers Day:

The meaning of the flowers themselves are individual and varies quite a bit due to type and color. The tradition was started all the way back in the early 1900s. In honor of her late mother, Anna Jarvis coordinated the very first Mothers Day using her moms’ favorite flower, the carnation. The day was officially declared a holiday by President Woodrow Wilson back in 1914. This is one of the reasons why carnations are one of the most recognized blooms of the holiday, all thanks to Miss Jarvis and her beloved mother. Although Anna was not very keen on the commercialization of her mother’s treasured carnation, the tradition has held strong.

 

The Color:

Colors have been used to express certain emotions and sentiments throughout history.

  • Red: Typically denotes feelings of love and/or passion
  • White: Usually signifies innocence and purity
  • Yellow: Is a show of friendship, joy and/or happiness

 

Significance of the Flowers:

There are many variations in the meaning of some of the most popular Mothers Day flowers. The most popular blooms and their symbolism:

  • Daisies: Innocence and purity. These are the perfect choice for new or expectant mothers.
  • Orchid: Love, admiration, luxury, beauty, and strength
  • Azaleas: Symbol of femininity and softness
  • Kalanchoe: Persistence and eternal love. This classifies more as a plant, however, that fact helps convey longevity.
  • Carnations: Promote love and feminineness. As the oldest token of the holiday, there is a good reason to include them in your bouquet.

Don’t Skimp on the Sentiment:

Once you have the perfect arrangement picked out, one of the final things to consider is your sentiment. You might be tempted to sign off with a generic ‘Happy Mothers Day’, although, I bet mom would appreciate something a bit more touching. Speak (write) from your heart. Let her know exactly what she means to you. The card is almost as important as the flowers themselves. Never skimp on the sentiment.

This meaningful holiday is about showing our gratitude to our wonderful, loving mothers. They show us unconditional love, and put their lives and souls into caring for our every want and need. This is the one occasion of the entire year that is all about the woman who has always put you first. Jewellery is beautiful, but vibrant blooms convey authentic emotion. There is truly no better way to express yourself than with a stunning arrangement of beautiful, sweet-scented, double entendres.
