Mother’s Day isn’t that far away! With this in mind, there is no better time to start conjuring up a few gift ideas for the most important lady in life. One of the most popular options is to gift a beautiful bouquet of blooms. But with so many bright and bold flower options out there, how to go about picking some for your dearest?
Here we’ve picked a few of our favourites for Mother’s Day in 2021…
Why send flowers on Mother’s Day?
Asides from putting an instant smile on mum’s face, flowers promise to add an injection of fragrance and colour to the home. They’re also a great gift to send further afield, which makes them a perfect option for those looking to send a special delivery via post.
Letterbox flowers, for example, are even packaged so that they can be posted straight through the door, meaning your mum won’t even need to be at home to receive them.
What to consider when choosing flowers for Mother’s Day
There are many things to consider when choosing flowers for this Mother’s Day, one of which should include your mum’s tastes. Does she have a favourite flower or a preferred hue? If so, try to opt for a bouquet that reflects that.
Alternatively, choose an arrangement that is neutral in style, which offers an array of sophisticated blooms in equally sophisticated shades, guaranteed to suit any style and decor.
This pretty pink bouquet is a great option for a girly mum. This letterbox bouquet arrives in a box slim enough to fit through your standard letterbox, meaning even if she’s out running errands, it will be waiting patiently on the doormat for her return.
Inside the box, she will discover an assortment of hot pink blooms in the shape of pink roses and pink alstroemerias, both of which arrive in bud form ready to burst into bloom.
Another popular option for Mother’s Day is Summer Time. This glorious bouquet features a series of sweetly scented lilies, pastel pink lisianthus, purple-tinged statics and bold chrysanthemum blooms. When displayed in an equally pretty vase, this bouquet promises to pack a punch, brightening up even the dullest of days!
If you’re looking for something more hot-hued in style, opt for a bouquet of the aptly named Rainbow Tulips. These bold and brash blooms will add an instant injection of colour to any room in the household, making them the perfect option for recipients who have an eclectic style.
Brimming with orange, purple and yellow tulips, they certainly won’t go unnoticed. Note that if your mum has a cat, tulips are not the best option as they will be harmful to her four-legged critter.
The Peace Bouquet is an ideal option for those who prefer a more sophisticated, grand style and for those who live in a contemporary home. These blooms perfectly complement a modern-day style, with their crisp white hues and elegant design.
Made up of large-headed roses, lisianthus, freesia and wax flowers, they create a sense of calm and inner peace – something we can all do with a little of in these uncertain times.
This is one for mum that promises to make her (and all around her) appreciate Mother Nature. This sweetly scented bouquet boasts perfectly pink carnations, pastel pink alstroemerias and pistachio foliage. And the end result? A dazzling arrangement boasting effortless style.
These blooms are another set packaged to get through the letterbox, plus they’ll arrive in bud form so your mum will be able to enjoy them for as long as possible!
If you possess a somewhat lively personality, this is a great bouquet to send if you wish to establish your fiery charm through a floral arrangement on Mother’s Day.
This striking composition features blooms of all shapes and shades, including green and yellow Santini, orange germini, yellow lilies, cerise spray carnations and blue statice – an instant injection of colour for the home and a great gift to give your Mum this Mothering Sunday.
More yellow than mellow? This bouquet is guaranteed to delight the main lady in your life this Mother’s Day. It’s a fashionable bouquet with an edge of boho style, featuring white antirrhinum, yellow freesia and yellow high altitude roses, white Santini and green Kenton Palms. The beautiful shades of yellow hint at the onset of spring and the joy it brings.
Whichever bouquet you opt for, the gift of flowers is one that promises to show your mum just how much you love and care for her, even from afar! And remember that many blooms can be ordered with same or next day delivery, meaning you’ll still have some time to send them as a gift, even if you leave it until the last minute!
