5 tips for choosing your Mother’s day flowers




With Mother’s day fast approaching, there is no better time than now to start searching for the perfect bouquet to give to your mom. Mothers day is the perfect time for people across the country to show their mothers how much they appreciate them and what other way is there to show them this than by organizing a fantastic bunch of flowers to be delivered to their door. The only trouble is; it can be hard to choose what flowers to go for since there is generally quite a varied array to choose from. Subsequently, with such a wide range of options available, you might find it difficult to narrow down which one will be just right for your lovely mum. So, here are a few questions to ask yourself that will help to narrow down your search and lead you to the perfect bunch.

1. What color flower should I choose?

The first thing to consider is what  colors your mom likes, or which ones suit their personality. Soft, gentle pastel colors or bright, vibrant colors are the first obvious choices. Think about the décor in her house, the colors she wears, or the colors you know she likes. By choosing the right color to suit her, you can then look further into the types of flowers that are available in those colors.  If your mom is a lively, jolly character who loves nothing more than a laugh, then perhaps bolder colors would be more suited.  M0m’s who are quiet, yet considerate and caring would prefer more pastel tones.

2. Which flowers are in season?

As Mother’s day falls in May, it is useful to consider which flowers are in season at this time of year.  You are sure to get the best local flowers if you choose carefully and, in May, a lot of variations of lily are in season making them a popular choice for mother’s day bouquets. The great thing about these is that they come in many shapes, colours and sizes due to the variations available, so you can find the right one for you. Fortunately, classic flowers; such as roses, are grown all year round in different conditions so – if this is your preferred choice – it is still available at this time of year.

3. Should I buy a large or small bouquet?

Is your mother the kind of lady who would be totally wowed by a few large lilies, surrounded by foliage, or would she prefer a large bunch of smaller flowers all arranged together neatly? If she has a small home, then a large bouquet may not be practical for her to display them, and sometimes just a dozen roses can make a huge statement. Consider what your m0m would like and what would suit her before jumping in a choosing something just because it is what you would prefer.

4.  Should I order online or in-store?

The great thing about buying flowers online to be delivered, rather than purchasing in your local shop, is the element of surprise when they are delivered to your mother’s door. While delivering them yourself is possible, organizing an online delivery shows the thought and time you have taken to organize them yourself. Not only will you get top quality flowers at a great price if you buy your mothers day flowers from Fresh Flowers, but she will also be amazed when she hears that knock on the door and finds a bouquet of gorgeous flowers to greet her.

5. What species of flower are best for mother’s day?

If your mom has a preference for the gentle scent of roses, or for the large vibrant lily, then it is better to choose the one you know she prefers. If you are unsure, then perhaps think back to flowers she has bought and displayed in the house.  Failing that, going for a beautiful arrangement of ‘disbuds’ will definitely put a smile on her face!
