Mother’s Day is around the corner and we are all racking our brains to come up with the perfect gift for our lovely moms! After all, she is the one who makes your world go around and you wouldn’t want to miss any chance to make this a special day for her. While expensive gifts are welcome, tender feelings are somehow described best by things as tender as the feelings themselves. We are talking about flowers, of course! In fact, we suggest presenting your mom with a bouquet of beautiful flowers before Mother’s Day itself to get into the mood for some serious celebration on Mother’s Day.
You can choose any flowers, especially those she loves, but may we suggest that you take a look at the traditional meaning associated with each flower, so that you can send your mom an eloquent message. Flowers used to be a common form of communication until the Victorian era and you can keep the tradition alive by sharing flowers associated with certain emotions with your mom.
Perhaps the most beloved flower, it comes in a variety of colours and each colour conveys a different meaning. While white roses for your mom will signify the reverence and purity of your love for her, yellow roses signify devotion and if you have always admired the grace and beauty of your mom, send her a bouquet of pink roses and see her beam!
Traditionally, carnations are the best flowers to gift on Mother’s Day. So, if you are choosing carnations, pick up pink ones to express your gratitude and love and if you admire your mom more than anything, then go ahead and send her red carnations!
Tulips can brighten up your mom’s day as well as her smile because it is the only flower whose message, in general, is love. So your love is bound to get across to your mom with tulips. If you opt for pink tulips, they will also signify how much you care for your mom, while yellow tulips signify cheerfulness and love.
Lilies come in a wide variety of colours and have the reputation of being loved by most moms. It is also the symbol of motherhood for the Chinese. This Mother’s Day, convey the purity of your love for your mother with lilies.
Last on our list, but definitely not the last option for you, are orchids. Incidentally, orchids are possibly one of the best bets to please your mother on Mother’s Day! They stand for beauty, love and refinement, in short everything your mother is, so go make her happy!
