To some people Mother’s Day has become too commercial. To other’s, it’s a chance to express their love on a very special day. Mother’s Day is going to be tomorrow before you know it. Have you bought your mom a gift yet? Running out of Mother’s Day gifts and ideas? On a tight budget this year? How about Mother’s Day Flowers?
Here are some of the best flowers for your mom on Mother’s Day, recommended by The Living Guru.
Roses have long been associated with motherhood, making them The Living Guru‘s top choice for Mother’s Day. Pink roses signify and embody elegance, beauty, grace, and appreciation, while yellow roses symbolize friendship and joy, so both colors are ideal to give your mom. [Note to guys who don’t know a thing about roses : stay away from white roses on mother’s day…!]
Tulips are traditionally associated with new life, charity and spring. With their grace and beauty, these flowers are always a popular option for Mother’s Day. To be honest, this is The Living Guru’s personal top choice but I know that roses are are more popular and so… 🙂
Though lilies are normally considered an Easter flower, they are often used on Mother’s Day as well. There’s a certain purity element to lilies. Traditionally, florists add a few calla lilies or white lilies to mixed bouquets on Mother’s Day.
According to Christian myth, pink carnations are said to have first grown from the ground where the Virgin Mary shed tears over Jesus’ death. Because of this, many see carnations are a symbol of a mother’s eternal love. Pink, red and white carnations make popular choices for Mother’s Day bouquets. It’s not The Living Guru’s favourite BUT included here because… that’s many people’s choices and life is fair… 🙂
