Many conventions withstand the test of time simply because of, well, their simplicity. Ordering Mother’s Day flowers is, for most of us, a given. After all, what makes more sense than showering the marvelous women who gave us life with beautiful, vibrant blooms? While the creative team at HMR Designs strongly advocates for originality, we also pride ourselves on knowing when not to try to reinvent the wheel. And when it comes to Mother’s Day, we leave well enough alone. Mothers loves flowers and everyone knows it.
While you don’t need to change the gesture, you can change your strategy.
Chances are, unless you work or hobby among flowers, your knowledge of botany and floriculture is limited to the more everyday varieties, and you put Mother’s Day flowers in the hands of professionals. And chances are, this yields success. Our daily floral team, for one, never disappoints.
However, if you’re looking to surprise your mother with something a little different, we’ve got some bright ideas how to proceed.
ONE FOR ALL
For an alternative to a mixed bunch, Daily Floral Designer Jen Demuth loves the look of a mass of all one flower, or all one color. “It’s elegant, simple and clean,” she says.
For a more modern, impactful look, try Calla Lilies.
Or, for a softer, more airy look, try Sweet Pea.
To treat your mother to a multi-sensory experience, a big bunch of lilacs, peonies or garden roses are sure to bring a wonderfully aromatic element to her gift.
For a slight twist on the typical vased arrangement, you can also opt for bulbs. Whether exposed through glass or potted, give your mother the added pleasure of something to look forward to as the plants continue to flower.
Excellent bulb choices: tulips, hyacinth, daffodils or paperwhites.
