Classic Flowers to Send this Mother’s Day

Our mothers do so much for us throughout the year, and Mother’s Day is the perfect time to let them know that all they do doesn’t go unappreciated. This year consider sending your mom something classic this year to celebrate her day.


You can’t go wrong with a bouquet full of roses! As a more traditional flower, roses make a perfect choice that any mother is certain to love. Red roses usually represent romantic love, but other colors like pink or yellow are a great choice for Mother’s Day! Pink roses stand for gratitude and appreciation, while yellow ones are representative of a caring nature.


The lily is a symbol of fertility and motherhood in many cultures across the world, which makes it a perfect flower to include for Mother’s Day. Any color lily will be a beautiful choice for your mom, but if you want to say thank you to her, be sure to send her yellow lilies which represent gratitude.


These are the most traditional flowers that are sent for Mother’s Day each year. The founder of the holiday, Anna Jarvis, honored her mother’s memory with white carnations, her mother’s favorite flower. These flowers have since become a staple of Mother’s Day celebrations. Carnations signify purity, faith, love, beauty, and charity, which all represent the virtues of motherhood.


If you think your mom would love a more modern arrangement, tulips might be a perfect choice! They express enduring love, making them a great option for Mother’s Day. They also represent comfort, coziness, and happiness, all of which they’re certain to bring into your mom’s home!


By sending your mom peonies, you are honoring her. Peonies also stand for compassion and happiness, along with beauty and good fortune. These are a great flower to let your mom know just how much she means to you!

Not sure if any of these choices are a perfect fit for your mom? Don’t limit yourself to these traditional flowers! The most important thing is to be sure to choose flowers that your mom will love.
