The Right Flowers

According to numerous surveys, among the most popular flowers presented on Mother’s Day there are carnations, orchids, tulips, roses and even sunflowers. Let’s see what these wonders of the Mother Nature symbolize and choose the right bouquet!  

Carnations are considered the original symbol of Mother’s Day. Back in 1900s, Anna Jarvis, an active American church member and dedicated volunteer, was fighting to establish a day to honor mothers and motherhood. She succeeded, and Mother’s Day became a national holiday in 1914. Anna’s mother liked carnations, that is why the loving daughter proclaimed these flowers the symbol of the day.

Orchids are well known for their exotica and elegance. Their sophisticated flowers symbolize perfection, luxury and love.  

Tulips are cloaked in different stories and legends. Besides, you need to be careful when choosing the color: for such occasion as Mother’s Day it is recommended to present pink or purple tulips that symbolize family love and abundance respectively.  

Roses are considered rather ubiquitous flowers, suitable for every occasion. But is it really so? The color of the flowers should again be picked very thoughtfully to send the right message. This Sunday your choice should be pink roses, which imply appreciation and gratitude; peach roses, which symbolize modesty; ivory or creamy roses, which mean thoughtfulness and charm.

Sunflowers are full of spiritual meanings: they are symbols of long life, health, faith, happiness and good luck.

Do not forget to put a cute hand-made card with the warmest words. Forget about poems and quotes. Let them go from the depths of your heart and soul – and you will be able to say exactly what you feel.

Enjoy Mother’s Day 2017 with your loving mom and grannies!
And remember that actually you are their greatest gift.
