Mother's Day Floral Gifts 101

| Wendy Han

Mother's Day is a special day that honours mothers all around the world for their unconditional love and care. This day is celebrated to express gratitude to mothers and show them how much we love and appreciate them. One of the most popular ways of expressing this love is by gifting flowers to mothers. Flowers are a symbol of love and affection, and they can brighten up anyone's day. This blog will explore the history of Mother's Day and some of the best floral gift ideas so that you can select the perfect gift to make her day truly remarkable.

History of Mother’s Day

History shows that although the ancient Greeks and Romans celebrated special festivals to honour their mother goddess, the first globally recognised official Mother's Day was celebrated in 1908 in the United States, initiated by Anna Jarvis. After the demise of her mother, she came up with the idea of celebrating Mother's Day as a means of paying tribute to the selfless and invaluable sacrifices that mothers make for their children.

Mother's Day in Australia is a relatively recent tradition. Janet Heyden, a woman from Sydney, initiated the tradition in 1924 in response to the neglect of elderly mothers in Newington State Hospital, where she visited a friend, after the significant casualties of World War I.

Best Flowers for Mother’s Day

1. Carnations

Carnations are one of the most popular choices for Mother's Day floral gifts. Across various countries, carnations serve as the official flower for Mother's Day. In 1908, Anna Jarvis, the founder of Mother's Day, distributed carnations during the first Mother's Day service in the United States.

Carnations come in a variety of colours, and each hue has its own symbolic significance. Red carnations symbolise admiration, white ones stand for purity and innocence, and pink represents gratitude. From pink and white to red and yellow, we have an array of carnation bouquets that you can pick from, and your mother will surely be touched.

2. Roses

Apart from carnations, roses are among the most commonly gifted flowers on Mother's Day. Red roses, which traditionally symbolise romantic love, can also signify gratitude and appreciation when given in a lighter red or deep pink shade. Yellow roses are believed to represent a caring nature, while white roses are associated with purity and brightness.
