“If I had a flower for each time I thought of my mother, I could walk in my garden forever. ––Author Unknown
No gift shows appreciation, lifts the mood, or says that you care quite like flowers. There’s a reason they are a popular item for life’s best celebrations, from weddings, to Valentine’s Day, to Mother’s Day, and hopefully on unexpected Tuesdays.
We asked Flowers by Flores owner Marisel Flores what she would recommend for the special occasion of Mother’s Day. “Our first recommendation to every child that has a privilege to have her mom alive, is to love, honour and cherish her all year long,” she responded. “Our second is to give her flowers while she's around.”
Having said that, there are so many options to make mom feel unique and loved. In line with tradition, the rich, vibrant, fragrant, and deeply symbolic rose remains the most in-demand flower. Roses are followed by lilies, tropical flowers and orchids. Remember that you can get arrangements to include Mom’s favourites and add a unique touch to your gift.
Marisel says flower boxes have become popular over the past couple of years, especially with the younger generation which is always on the look-out for something different. The decorative boxes can be kept and used as décor/storage. “We highly recommend this type of arrangement, because the flowers look great, and last longer. This is because most of the time, the stems are cut shorter and absorb the water better.”
Flowers by Flores also recommends classic glass vase arrangements. Mom will love the vase, and can design her own piece of art the next time she receives a bouquet of flowers. Remember to place your orders as soon as possible, so that you can get the best arrangements while stocks last. Delivery options are available!
