This year, May 8th will represent one of the most cherished days of the year. It is a day set aside to honor Moms and to celebrate how amazing they are. Recognized around the world, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May, varying only in a few countries with different traditions.
Many flowers are perfect to honor the special relationships that mothers inspire. Pink roses, for instance, signify gratitude and appreciation – and are widely considered the “official flowers” of the holiday. To create a bouquet that sends a meaningful message, add lilies which speak to devotion and sacrificial love. Pinks and purples are the most popular colors for floral arrangements on this day, and given that springtime exudes many of the qualities that mothers do – life, joy, abundance, and love – spring blooms of any kind make for a striking Mother’s Day arrangement.
Many people in our lives may be considered “Mom” – a mother-in-law, a grandmother or aunt, or even someone special who stepped in to play the role. When choosing gifts for all these extraordinary women, don’t forget the chocolate! It is a rare woman who doesn’t love a good gourmet chocolate, so browse our selection to add a few delicacies to your floral bouquet.
