Mother’s Day is fast approaching. With only two weeks left until the special day for the main lady in our life, it’s time for you to think fast about what you’re going to get her (that is if you haven’t bought a gift yet!).
For others who prefer the shortcut, you can easily ask your mum about what she wants you to get for her. However, there’s a great chance she’ll say, “Oh, you don’t have to,” or “Just come for Sunday lunch, that’s the only gift I want.” Some mums would also go for the classic, “Surprise me,” response.
And if your mum gives you this response, you’re surely going to have a big problem and may be rushing and cramming hours before that Sunday family lunch over your parents’ house.
However, there is a classic gift idea that you can never go wrong with for Mother’s Day – flowers. They’re the perfect way to say “Thank You”, “I love you”, “You’re the best mum” and even “You are the most beautiful mum”, without words. Plus, it’s perfect because you know those flowers are definitely going in the middle of the table for your Sunday lunch or somewhere in the living room, along with the frames of family photos.
“But what kind of flowers?”, you may ask. We know, it can be quite confusing too. There are a variety of flowers and arrangements and you’re worried about choosing the wrong arrangement, colour or flower type.
Don’t worry, though. That’s exactly why we’ve prepared this blog for you.
The Classic Bouquet of Red Roses
Red roses are usually given to special women as they symbolise passion, desire and romance. However, red roses also say “I Love You” and show your admiration. And you do love your mother and admire her, right? If you prefer to have the flowers ready to display, you can opt for the Real Touch Red Rose Arrangement.
A Bouquet of Pink Roses
Other than the red roses, a bouquet full of pink roses are also another classic that you can always rely on for mum’s special day. Due to its lighter shade and hue, pink roses are given to convey sweetness, grace and elegance. It’s the perfect way to let our mums know that in our lives, they provide that sweetness we need in hard and bitter times and their grace inspires us to be better persons for others.
For mums who prefer simplicity and minimalism, tulips grouped together according to their colour are the best flowers to give. Further emphasise their beauty by placing them on a clear rectangular vase. You can also opt for a combination of tulips and another flower type, such as calla lilies, of similar shades. You can save time from looking for the flower and a clear rectangular vase by getting a Yellow Tulip and Calla Lilly Arrangement.
Our mums are the beacon of light for a lot of us and what better way to let them know that by giving them an arrangement of sunflowers. These flowers’ large size also symbolises their importance in our life – which is a lot.
White Magnolia Arrangement
The colour white symbolises purity, which is why they are always used in bridal bouquets. For mums, they can represent the purity of their love for their family.
A Focal Flower
What better way to show your mum that she is one of the main points in your life than through an arrangement with a focal flower. This kind of arrangement makes use of a single large-sized flower, such as a rose or a peony. The flower is then surrounded by greenery and can be added with smaller flowers such as hydrangeas.
Roses and Orchids Arrangement
Other than roses, orchids are also classic flower types that are perfect for gifting and displaying. Combining these two flowers in a single arrangement maximises their beauty and elegance. They can also be better displayed when placed in a rectangular wooden box. A Red Roses and Orchids Handmade Wooden is also readily available to save you time from having to look for each of the flowers and the container.
All in all, floral arrangements are one of the best gift ideas if you haven’t thought of a present for mum yet. In case you’re also wondering about how long the arrangements we’ve suggested will last, there’s no need to worry about them wilting away weeks later. The arrangements we’ve placed above for you are made of artificial flowers! That means mum can keep it and see its preserved beauty. Other than that, you can be sure that mum won’t be getting any allergies from the centrepiece you’ve brought her. Your mum will surely thank you for your lovely addition to her home decoration and remind her of you and your love and appreciation for her every time she looks at it!
