Is your mum a classy lady who likes the finer things in life? Is she a hippy at heart and prefers the whimsical, unstructured look? Will she appreciate classic Mother’s Day flowers like chrysanthemums and tulips or will she love whatever flowers are trending? If you know her style, the clothes she likes to wear and the way she decorates her house, you should be able to match this to a bouquet. And if you’re having trouble figuring it out, describe her personality to a local florist and they will be able to help find the perfect bunch.
Colour is so important when it comes to choosing flowers. Do you know her favourite colour? Her clothes will normally give you a pretty good hint. Think about what she normally wears. Is she bright and colourful? Pretty and pastel? Classic and monochrome? You also need to consider the colour scheme of her home. Is it minimalist and pristine? If so, it’s probably best to stick with classic whites. If she has an eclectic vibe with lots of colour then you have permission to go bright and bold. And if she has a highlight colour, it’s best to buy flowers in that colour or one that complements it.
As nice as it is to receive a spontaneous bouquet of flowers, scrambling around to find something to put them in...not so much. Know what vases your mum has available and buy the appropriate size bouquet to match. If you’re unsure, why not choose flowers that come in a vase? You can never have too many flower vessels right?
When we think of Mother’s Day, we often think of the mums that raised us, but what about the other ladies in your life who are experiencing motherhood for the first time? They would no doubt appreciate receiving flowers from you on their very first Mother’s Day.
We highly doubt that this could ever be the case, but in the unlikely event that your mum doesn’t like flowers, it’s best to respect this and get her a gift instead. What about a houseplant in a nice pot, a candle or some soaps? We’ve got a great selection of non flowery goodness in store, and it's all perfect for Mother’s Day
