Why do we give flowers on Mother’s Day?

These days we tend to celebrate by gifting flowers on Mother’s Day, but where does this tradition come from? Again, this is all thanks to the 17th century! Children that moved away for work (normally to find jobs as servants) would pick Spring flowers on their way home to gift to their mothers. How sweet! Because of the time of year, these flowers would have been Spring blooms, such as Tulips and Daffodils. 
We love that this tradition still lives on today!

When is Mother’s Day?

This year, Mother’s Day will be celebrated on Sunday 10th March. Scribble the date in your diary and make sure you order your flowers in advance to ensure you get what you want. It’s a florists busiest day of the year!


Mother’s Day Flowers and Their Meanings

Did you know flowers have hidden meanings? You can create your Mum or loved one a bouquet filled with personal touches, all by using certain types of blooms. What a lovely way to show your love and appreciation! Here are some of the most popular Mother’s Day flowers…


Did you know pink roses symbolise gratitude? These popular Mother’s Day flowers are perfect for meaningful Mother’s Day flower arrangements.
Mix your pink roses with creams for a soft, pastel look. You can either add roses to your bouquet, mixed with foliage and other blooms. What will your mum love?

Top tip: Don’t forget to de-thorn your roses… Oh wait! I already do that for you.


Mother’s Day always takes place in March, which is the start of Springtime and the blooming season for some of the best Mother’s Day flowers. Tulip flowers are the perfect go-to for your Mother’s Day flower arrangement and come in a variety of beautiful colours that represent unconditional love. 
Tulips look best when they are displayed on their own, as they can be a little unruly! Check out my Simply Tulip bouquet in the Mothers Day Collection.

Top tip: Let the tulips do their own thing, so don’t worry too much if one or two falls to the side – it just adds to their unique look!


Oh Daffodils…they represent happiness and will brighten up any flower arrangement and any room! Similar to Tulips, Daffodils are popular Mother’s Day flowers as they are some of the first flowers to bloom in the Spring and create beautiful and vibrant floral displays! 

As an experienced florist I think that nowadays there is such a wide choice of flowers available and they are all as equally beautiful.
