Through the centuries and across countries and cultures, the celebration of mothers has been recognized in various ways. From the ancient Greeks to the modern day, honoring the matriarch of the family has always been an important part of our lives. The official observance of Mothers’ Day that we take part in here in America only started about 100 years ago, when Anna Jarvis petitioned to make Mother’s Day an annual entry on the national calendar. Sadly, she later regretted the effort, as her original intentions were overshadowed by the commercialization of the day. However, we believe the original heart and sentiment of this special holiday still reigns.
Whether you decide to do something extravagant for mom or are just planning something small to show you care – flowers are always a traditional go-to gift! This Mothers’ Day, plan to create a unique bouquet that perfectly embodies your mother’s special qualities. Each flower has a distinct meaning and symbolism; when selected with the intention of celebrating someone, the bouquet takes on a truly personal significance.
When choosing flowers based on their symbolic nature, floral arrangements become more meaningful and heartfelt. For instance, pink roses are meant to show appreciation and gratitude; the overriding sentiment of the day. Pink calla lilies also express deep thankfulness for all she has done for you; while white chrysanthemums signify true loyalty, a trait mothers exude more than any other person in your life.
