Carnations are a great flower to send to your mother on Mother’s Day. Pink carnations represent thanks and gratitude, while red carnations are symbolic for admiration. Carnations are always a loved gift for mom, and with such symbolism, it is clear to see why this is the case!
However, they also have a solemn side. If your mother is sadly no longer with us, then this celebration can be one of the hardest times of year. At FloraQueen, we are here to help you, and you can still celebrate the great memories that you had together. We’d strongly recommend white carnations, as these are traditionally used as a sign of remembrance for a mother on Mother’s Day.
The lily is well known by florists as a favorite in the field of Mother’s Day flowers . Every year, it is one of our most popular flowers when it comes to Mother’s Day in both the UK and the USA, although they always fall on different dates! On top of that, it is used in Chinese culture as a symbol of motherhood and respect.
Lilies come in a range of types and colors, meaning that you can send a bouquet of flowers to your mother safe in the knowledge that it will be stunning. Day lilies are perfect for this occasion as they are known, particularly in China, to signify the devotion of a child to their mother and the devotion of a mother to their child. That’s exactly what you are looking for on May 8th!
A mature bunch of roses signifies thanks, and that’s what Mother’s Day is all about. A bouquet of pink roses is especially suited to Mother’s Day, thanks to its variety of meanings. A light pink signifies youthful joy, like that of a child, whilst a dark pink shows gratitude, and anything between the two represents grace. As an sophisticated mother, all three would be perfect to show your thanks on Sunday May 8th.
This is of course forgetting the go to flower, the bouquet of red roses! Red roses are beautiful flowers, and although usually linked with romantic sensations, also make a great gift for any woman at any time of year, let alone a mom on Mother’s Day! They will show the strength of your love and affection for her, and won’t leave her doubting that she is one of the luckiest moms in the world.
Don’t forget that FloraQueen offer a wide range of great gifts and Mother’s Day flowers which can be sent almost anywhere in the world, perfect for if you are forced apart by distance this Mother’s Day. Thank her for all that she’s done and give her a luxurious May 8th.
