How to Send Mother’s Day Flowers to Your Mom, Wife or Best Friend

Along with their own mothers, Americans spend Mother’s Day celebrating their wives, other relatives and best friends who are moms with flowers. Mother's Day accounts for one-fourth of the floral purchases made for holidays, according to the Society of American Florists (SAF). Those Mother’s Day flowers make memorable gifts. Research shows that 92 percent of women can remember the last time they received flowers, and 89 percent say receiving flowers makes them feel special.

“With a gift of flowers, you know that someone is thinking of you right now, this very minute,” said Jim Coggins, owner of Coggins Flowers & Gifts in Spartanburg. “It's the memory of the gift and the emotions that last forever.”

Jim Coggins offers the following advice on how to send the right message with flowers to the all the special moms in your life:

  • Leading Ladies. No woman – especially moms, grandmas and sisters – should live without a little TLC. A fabulous flowering plant or a garden-style arrangement with greens and soft pastel hues – no matter what the flower – will send the message that you care.
  • The Real Deal. Flowers are intimately – and internationally – linked with the art of romance, and for good reason says. As relationships grow, flowers become symbols of different events and milestones in our lives together. Take note of her favorite flowers – the varieties at your wedding, flowers you sent her when you first started dating or the ones she buys for herself. Those will have great meaning and impact.
  • The Gal Pal. Flowers that show you’re thinking of someone, but not in a sensual way, have a natural, just-picked feeling. Ask for a selection of garden-style flowers or a bright bold color palette that is fun and whimsical. A basket with a mix of flowering and green plants delivered to her door or office is also a sure fire winner.

Why Do We Give Flowers on Mother's Day?

The FTD® Sweet Surprises® Bouquet

Once every year on Mother's Day we stop and take some time out to say thanks to our Moms. You may say thanks to your Mom with some Mother's day flowers, a gift, a meal out or just a phone call. Have you ever wondered where the tradition of Mother's Day comes from? Or why, in fact so many people choose to give Mother's Day flowers each year?

Perhaps this year you would like to do something special for you Mom. If you think the usual Mother's day flowers delivery is a little boring, maybe it's time to look further a field. Consider some of the ways that Mothers Day is celebrated around the world and how flowers are incorporated into it. Perhaps you might even like to mention this to your mom around the world, Mother's Day is celebrated in different ways and in different days. One of the earliest historical records of a celebration of Motherhood was Matronalia, the ancient roman celebration held in honor of the Goddess, Juno. Juno was the goddess of childbirth. The holiday celebrated the idea of motherhood and childbirth.

Mother's Day, as we know it, was created by Anna Jarvis in 1912. She created the day in honor of her own Mother, Ann Jarvis, who had passed away. Along with activist, Julia Ward Howe, the two had worked for over forty years to have a day recognized for women. While campaigning for the day, Anna Jarvis would often give out white carnations, which is where the traditional of Mother's day flowers originates from. A white carnation symbolizes the purity of a mother's love. Mother's Day flowers delivery Manhattan requires orders of more white carnations than any other day of the year.

In the United Kingdom Mother's Day flowers are the most common form of gift. Instead of Mother's day, the British often use the term Mothering Sunday. This is an old Christian holiday which has, over time, come to merge with the more well known celebration of Mother's Day. Historically, the fourth Sunday of Lent was a time when many families in Britain gained leave from their employment. Often it was the only time of year all family members would be able to take holidays. For this reason, They would all return to their home church, to spend time together. Sometimes this day is known as Rose Sunday, as in honor of motherhood, Roses will be given out at the Sunday Church service to all women who are present.

In China, like the United States, it is commonplace for children to give their mother white carnations. However, Chinese traditionalists are pushing for this to be changed to Lilies, which historically are planted by Mothers when their children leave home.

Across history, the symbol of flowers is repeatedly linked with motherhood. Flowers, with their simplicity, beauty and purity to, as Anna Jarvis thought, best represent the love of a mother for her child. Let your Mother know that you return her love with flowers this Mother's Day.
