Mother’s Day is the best time of year for making sure Mom knows how you feel about her. While our hectic lives can distract us throughout the year, the holiday of Mother’s Day reminds us to stop and show appreciation for the special woman who brought us into this world.
Just about any flower type can be a good choice for Mother’s Day gift giving. Flowers innately exude an energy of positivity and love, and sending flowers to Mom on Mother’s Day is a guaranteed way to lift her spirits. If you’re not sure what color flowers to send your Mom, consider these suggestions.
1. Maroons and Purples
Purple, maroon and burgundy are royal colors that can make Mom feel like the Queen she is. Sending flowers in this color scheme will almost invariably get a strong positive reaction, as most Moms love the color purple. Roses, daisies, violets, orchids and lilies are all available in various shades of purple, so consider one of those flower types or a mixed bouquet of several.
2. Reds and Burgundies
Red is the color of deep love, and no Mom wouldn’t be touched by receiving a bouquet of red, burgundy or deep pink flowers. Red roses are a classic, but the color red is also suited to tulips, carnations, daisies and orchids.
3. Pink and Salmon Tones
If your Mom favors highly feminine tones, then pink flowers are the gift to give. There are a range of pink colors and flowers she would love to receive, from roses to lilies, orchids, carnations and many other flower types. Consider an all-pink bouquet or one mixed with white and ivory flowers as well.
4. Orange and Melon Colors
Orange exudes a happy, joyful energy and could be the perfect way to change up the color palette if you’ve given more traditional choices in recent years.
5. Radiant Yellows
If Mom is in need of a burst of positive energy this year, consider sending her a bouquet of yellow flowers. Roses, sunflowers, daisies and even orchids are available in yellow, so why not send a bouquet of sunshine her way?
