While sometimes mothers-in-law are not treated too fairly in our jokes and stories, they are an integral part of our extended families – and we love them!
Did you ever consider why the in-law relationship is one people approach with a bit of trepidation? It’s likely because a marriage signifies a relational changing of the guard. Your husband is her son, and she was the most important woman in his life – until this day. Your wife may be all grown up, but your mother-in-law feels she is losing her best friend and little girl. Mothers-in-law are placed in the heart-wrenching position of taking a step backward in their child’s life, so that you can take the lead. It can be a bit complicated or emotional at the onset, but it can also become one of the most meaningful relationships of your life!
On October 25, National Mother-In-Law Day, you have an opportune chance to tell this special lady that you think she is amazing. Whether you choose a fresh floral arrangement or a flowering green plant, your gift will convey to her that you love her and consider her “mom”. Classic Mother’s Day blooms are just as appropriate for this holiday – pink carnations, lilies and roses tend to be the most popular– but this occasion, why not create a bouquet just for her, one that each and every flower is picked for its symbolism?
Simply Chic Orchids
Cheerful daisies represent the happiness she has added to your life; orchids express gratitude for her graceful character, and the purple iris reflects her wisdom. For a unique gift consider a violet plant – it signifies faithfulness and devotion, and is a thoughtful way to thank her for her dedication to the family. If you do choose flowers based on their significance, add a card that explains why you chose each bloom, for a keepsake she is bound to treasure.
Regardless of if you are close with your mother-in-law, or if you are working on strengthening your relationship – October 25th is the ideal occasion to speak your sentiments with flowers. This Mother-In-Law’s Day, come into one of our Blossom Flower Shops, and let us help you to create the best floral arrangement for this special day.
