Mother’s Day is approaching. This observance became a national holiday in 1914 after President Woodrow Wilson signed a bill making the second Sunday of May, the official National Mother’s Day holiday. The idea for a national holiday to honor mothers began with Julia Ward Howe, the woman who wrote the lyrics to the Battle Hymn of the Republic, in 1872. Nevertheless, her efforts didn’t produce a governmental proclamation declaring the holiday. The woman who championed efforts to make this day a reality was Anna Jarvis.
If you’re trying to come up with the perfect gift for a mother in your life, look no further. We took some of our favorite floral arrangements and plants to give you some ideas to consider.
Hydrangeas are just becoming popular. It’s a shame that such a beautiful flower wasn’t considered in floral arrangements or gift plants until recently, but fortunately for us, we’ve got “Happy Blue,” a spectacular potted hydrangea that mom can enjoy long after Mother’s Day. She can even plant it outside in the ground where she can enjoy it as she relaxes in the garden.
Capture the essence of an enchanting European garden with our Deluxe European Garden Basket. We fill this basket with African Violets, azaleas, Gerbera daisies, Kalanchoe, and some green plants for contrast. Ivy cascades over the top of the basket, giving this delightful gift the feeling of a European balcony window box.
If roses are symbolic of love, then you can’t go wrong with our spectacular “Sunshine for Mom” arrangement. We place the choicest long stem Ecuadorian roses in an elegant vase and add accents of baby’s breath and greenery. This over-the-top arrangement is sure to be a hit with any mom.
If you want to give a truly lavish gift, you can’t do better than our Beautiful Bubble Bowl. We fill the bowl with different colored roses, orchids, and assorted other flowers. The fullness of the arrangement creates the illusion of a mound of colors and textures.
We captured the essence of simplicity and sophistication with the arrangement we call Peonies in Bloom. We fill a traditional glass vase with a dozen huge peony flowers. This fragrant delight just oozes spring, and it’s sure to be a hit with any flower-loving mother.
