What Type Of Flowers Should You Give On Mother's Day?

If you want to show your mother how special she is on Mother's Day then sending flowers is a good way to do it. Receiving a bouquet on the day is guaranteed to make your mum feel special. Probably the hardest part of sending flowers is deciding which ones to choose. It could be that your mum has a favourite and you always stick to buying them. If this is not the case, or you want to surprise her for a change, then there are decisions to be made.

Your mum is one of the most important people in your life and if you want to give her gorgeous flowers for Mother's Day it's worth taking plenty of time to ensure you make the right choice. Here are some of the most popular flowers to send on Mother's Day, together with some of the meanings that are associated with them.

Roses are one of the most popular flowers you can choose for a bouquet; there are very few people who do not love a rose. If you choose roses to give to your mum on Mother's Day then you may simply want to choose her favourite colour; assuming that it's a colour that can be found in roses. Alternatively, you can take a look at the meanings of different colours in roses; white stands for purity, yellow signifies devotion, medium pink suggests grace, pale pink stands for youthfulness and joy and dark pink signifies gratitude. Most of these could apply to many mothers so it could be a difficult choice to make.

Sunflowers and Gerbera Daisies
These are both flowers that have a bright and colourful appearance. A sunflower is said to signal that you adore and respect the person you are sending it to, so what could be better for Mother's Day? Daisies represent a spirit of playfulness and they are bound to bring a smile to your mum's face.

Tulips are an excellent flower to give at any time, with their distinctive shape and vivid colours. If you cannot decide on what colour tulip to include in a Mother's Day bouquet it's interesting to note that pink tulips signify a sense of caring and yellow tulips are said to bring cheerfulness with them. Any tulip is certain to brighten up Mother's Day.

Violets are sometimes considered to be a more old fashioned flower but they are colourful and delicate. They are also said to represent devotion which is an apt message to convey on Mother's Day.

There is no doubt about it; orchids have a sense of style about them. If you want to give flowers that are a little more exotic on Mother's Day then these are a good choice. They are said to convey love and beauty, and who does not love their mum and think she is beautiful?

Lilies are a perennial favourite in bouquets and especially in Mother's Day bouquets. Again, different blooms are said to represent different things; white for purity, day lilies for motherhood and calia lilies to represent beauty.

As you can see there is no shortage of appropriate flowers to send your mum on Mother's Day; hopefully we have helped make your choice a little easier with our list.
