Choosing The Right Flowers For Your Mother on Mother’s Day
There is nothing stronger than the love a mother feels for her children. Children are quite literally a part of their mother’s body and, although this physical connection changes over time, emotionally a mother and her children are forever intertwined.
Mothers never stop caring for their children and from the day their child is born and until she breathes her last breath a mother always worries about her children’s well-being. While our busy lives often make it difficult to show how much we appreciate our mothers, they always seem to understand and forgive us – even if they’ve never forgotten to be there for us (despite their own day to day responsibilities and stresses).
While we should never forget our mothers and should regularly find ways to show her our love, appreciation, support and admiration – there are days when we definitely shouldn’t skip making our mum feel extra special. Mother’s Day is one of those days where our mums should feel on top of the world, spoilt with love and showered with happiness! Showing gratitude to your mother shouldn’t be limited to a single day however Mother’s Day offers itself as a great opportunity to collectively celebrate all the mothers throughout the country and in turn mark the miracle and gift of motherhood in a special way.
This Mother’s Day in Australia, 10th May 2020, don’t forget to show your mum how much you care and make her feel truly special, just like she deserves to feel. With all the current Coronavirus/COVID-19 worries, make your mother smile and forget for a moment that the world is so full of uncertainty, anxiety and sickness and let her escape into a sense of comfort and hope.
A perfect way to provide this comfort and hope – while even being isolated from your mum and maybe not being able to see her and give her a big warm hug- is to send flowers straight to her door! These days we don’t have to physically buy her a gift (although this is still very rewarding and exciting) but we can order flowers and gifts online and we can choose the convenient option of contactless delivery.
Choosing to order flowers online for your mum is exciting as you can literally hand pick a flower bouquet or floral arrangement that you know your mother will love and there will always be an element of surprise when these flowers are delivered to her door. You can almost imagine the wonderful smile that will envelope her face when she opens the door to beautiful blooms and she will quite instantly forget all the worries of the world!
If you’d like to feel connected with your mother this Mother’s Day (whether you are separated due to isolation or distance, or even if you will be able to visit her) we’ve compiled a list of the perfect types of flowers to choose in your Mother’s Day flower delivery:
Did you know that chrysanthemums are the favourite flower of choice for Mother’s Day flowers in Australia? They are actually affectionately nicknamed “’mums” in the florist world and their name may even be one of the reasons they’ve earned their rightful spot as number 1 flower to choose for mum. While being absolutely gorgeous and available in a wide array of colours, these flowers are conveniently in season during the month of May (Autumn in Australia), which could be another reason why they are the perfect choice of gift for Mother’s Day.
Carnations are a perfect pick when you want to order flowers online for Mother’s day. This flower is traditionally known as the Mother’s Day flower around the world as they signify gratitude and appreciation. Since Mother’s day is all about showing gratitude, you can request our florists to include carnations in your flower order at checkout.
No bouquet or arrangement is complete without a rose. When you are choosing a custom bouquet or arrangement for your mother, make sure to add roses in it. Roses represent deep affection and adoration. White or pink roses represent love, friendship and innocence. Because your mother was actually your first true friend, choose to send flowers that encapsulate this enduring friendship and eternal love.
Tulips transcend occasions and most mothers love tulips. Tulips have unique meanings such as perfect love, worthiness, and loyalty. Any type and colour of tulips will fit perfectly into a Mother’s day bouquet and picking tulips has never been easier as you can choose to buy and send flowers online!
Lilies are a timeless flower that has always featured in Mother’s day flowers as they represent virtue. Pink lilies in particular represent love, femininity and admiration. Daylilies are a very popular choice of flower for Mother’s day as in places such as China they symbolise a mother’s devotion.
Orchids are also a favourite flower option amongst women and why wouldn’t they be since they symbolise elegance and class! When you want to order flowers online, choose orchids in your bouquet or arrangement or even opt for an orchid plant as it will be a long-lasting reminder of your thoughtfulness. Let your mother know that you have always thought of her as an elegant woman of great class this Mother’s day.
The Gladiolus flower represents strength and hope. Florists often include the gladiolus flower in their Mother’s Day flower delivery as they symbolise all the times our mothers showed us support and gave us strength to withstand the hardships and challenges of life. When you checkout with your flowers make sure to include gladiolus as a special request, so you can show gratitude for all those times your mother was there for you.
