How to choose the most beautiful flowers online for Mother’s Day

If you’re not sure about which flowers to go with, you are not alone. What’s good, though, is that once you know what different flowers mean you can buy something that reflects your feelings and emotions. Alternatively, you could buy a floral arrangement based only on its aesthetic appeal, as long as you think your Mum would love it.

Once you know how big or small an arrangement you’re looking for, you can look for flowers that show the message you wish to convey. The list below are some of the most popular Mother’s Day flowers:

  • Roses: You can buy roses to suit most occasions and Mother’s Day is no different. Roses and maternal love share historical bonds, not only through Virgin Mary, but through the Greek goddess Isis as well. You can buy roses for your mother depending on their meanings, where yellow signifies joy and friendship, white stands for virtue and reverence and pink denotes appreciation and grace.
  • Carnations: Christians believe that carnations first grew from the spot where Virgin Mary shed tears after the demise of Jesus, making them a longstanding symbol of maternal love.
  • Orchids: Orchids symbolise beauty, refinement and luxury. They make for great Mother’s Day flowers given that they last longer than most other cut flowers.
  • Lilacs: While lilacs stand for new love, making them popular wedding flowers, they also denote maternal love.
  • Tulips: Tulips denote love in general, although specific coloured tulips carry specific meanings. While red tulips denote true love, yellow tulips denote cheer and pink tulips signify concern.
  • Irises: These flowers denote warmth and affection and certain Christians associate them with Virgin Mary. Available in various colours, white irises are the most popular for Mother’s Day.
  • Lilies: White lilies, as per Roman mythology, came into being owing to Juno, the queen of Gods, nursing Hercules, her son. Many regard Easter lilies as symbols of Virgin Mary.
  • Sunflowers: Sunflowers denote respect and admiration, making them perfect fits in any Mother’s Day bouquet
  • Potted plants: If you don’t want to go the cut flowers way, you can always choose to give your mum a potted plant that is in bloom or ready to bloom.

What if you don't know what type of flowers warms her heart? Try working with her favourite colour instead or other likes/dislikes:

  • Traditional or modern
    Whether you should go the traditional or modern way is an aspect that depends on your mother. If your mother is traditional, you can stick to carnations, which traditionally linked to Mother’s Day. Pink and white flowers also tend to find favour with traditional mothers. If your mother is modern, you can look for contemporary floral arrangements. You can even consider buying her a potted plant or more.
  • More than flowers
    While giving your mother flowers on Mother’s Day is a good idea, adding something along with the flowers, if you can afford to, is even better. If your mother likes aromatherapy, you can buy her an aromatherapy growing kit, which also includes materials to grow plants like lemon balm, lavender and chamomile. If you want to gift some relaxation, you can buy flower-based scented candles or bath oils.
  • Think seasonal and local
    When you’re buying flowers, it pays to look for flowers that are in season and grow locally. Both are normally cheaper than out-of-season flowers and flowers that don’t grow locally and this is because they do not include storage or transportation costs. Besides, you increase your chances of finding fresh flowers when you go for the local and the seasonal.
