It’s Mother’s Day in just a few weeks, which means there will likely be much exchanging of flowers as gifts. If you’re one of the many who are planning to give flowers to your mother, wife, sister, or other mom in your life, you have several options to choose from.
You can give a traditional bouquet in a vase or a loose bunch of flowers tied with a ribbon. Sometimes, a classic corsage is a nice and surprising gesture, and a packet of seeds that can grow into flowers can be a creative touch.
Here are some other fun ideas for Mother’s Day flowers:
Mother’s Day Flowers in a Seashell
If you can find a huge seashell somewhere, use it to hold some island or ocean-inspired flowers. Not close to a beach? Look online for a seashell-shaped bowl or dish, and then fill it with florist foam to house birds of paradise, lilies, amaryllis or chenille plant.
Flowers in a Tote Bag
Give flowers in a pretty reusable tote so your giftee can have a keepsake after the bulbs or blossoms have perished. Find one that goes beautifully with some wildflowers that you picked yourself or with a bunch of blooms from the local farmers’ market. You might also place a nice potted floral plant in your gift bag.
A Bowl of Flowers
Find a wide shallow ceramic or glass bowl and fill it with flowers that have been cut low. You might even be able to locate a stunning wood bowl that’s lined with a waterproof coating. This can be a unique and exceptional choice. Present your offering that showcases camellias, fully blossomed roses, daisies or other large floral varietals.
There’s no end to the options you can come up with for gorgeous flowers to delight on Mother’s Day. No matter what you go with, you can’t go wrong because flowers are stunning however you arrange.
