How to Select the Perfect Mother’s Day Flowers

Mother's Day Flower Delivery

Mother’s Day and flowers have been synonymous since the beginning of time. Even though moms have been on the receiving end of special Mother’s Day flower deliveries for as long as anyone can remember, the gesture never seems to lose its charm. Presenting mom with a bouquet of blooms always brightens her day, but if you really know how to select the perfect Mother’s Day flowers, you’ll make a lasting impression.

Here are a few factors to consider when prepping for your Mother’s Day flower delivery:

  • Mom’s favorite colors
  • Mom’s favorite flowers
  • Where she’ll likely display them
  • Mom’s style
  • Freshness/durability

There are lots of aspects to think about, but with a little forethought, you’ll know exactly which direction to head in. Your mom does so much for you, the least you could do is put in a bit of flower research time. Here’s some extra guidance to get you on your way to becoming child of the year, or at least the most popular child in the family.



Different hues convey a range of emotions. If you want to express a specific feeling on Mother’s Day it’s a good idea to consider the colors in your floral gift.  For instance, pink is playful, innocent and light. Red, on the other hand, is more intense, warm and dynamic. Green evokes a peaceful, pure feeling while purple is inspiring and ethereal. Yellow is full of cheer and enthusiasm and orange is fun and spirited. White inspires thoughts or freshness, tradition and honesty. Of course, deep meanings aside, giving some consideration to your mom’s favorite shades is also incredibly helpful.


If your mom has a favorite flower, then certainly consider including at least some of those in your Mother’s Day flower delivery. That said, she may be fond of bloom that’s just not in season in May. Getting out of season flowers often costs a small fortune, so you’ll probably want to think out of the box. Some popular options are gerberas, roses, orchids, lilies, alstroemerias, and carnations. If mom doesn’t have a favorite, consider some unique flowers for Mother’s Day this year.

Display Location

Over the years you’ve probably noticed where your mom usually displays fresh flowers. Give some thought to the area of the house that the flowers will probably be displayed in. Consider the colors in that area of her home and plan your gift accordingly.  While most flowers will look captivating in most rooms, planning your gift to complement the space is especially thoughtful.

Personal Style

Is your mom traditional or more modern? Is she all about pastels or does she love something bold? When you’re picking out your Mother’s Day flower delivery bouquet, think about your mom’s personal style and try to come up with something that reflects it. Another style tip—be sure your delivery includes a personal message from you.


No one likes to receive a bouquet that wilts after one day or, worse yet, already looks half dead when it arrives. There are a couple of things you can do to help ensure that your mom gets quality flowers that last. If you’re going to pick up the bundle yourself, look for bunches that have several unopened buds. Also, look for durable flowers that don’t require extra care. That way she’ll get to enjoy new blooms for a while to come. If you plan on ordering a Mother’s Day flower delivery then make sure you’re dealing with a reputable company that cuts flowers to order and ships quickly so that flowers arrive fresh.
