Mother's Day Flower Guide
Mother's Day gives us the opportunity to celebrate just how much moms do every day of the year. Flowers are the loving and traditional way to show appreciation to the moms in our lives. Any arrangement of flowers that expresses your gratitude and fits the recipient's personality is a great gift to send on this special day.

If you're looking for flowers that send an especially eloquent message, you can select blooms to speak the "language of flowers." Each flower has a traditional meaning associated with it. Communicating with flowers was especially popular during the Victorian era, but many people keep the tradition alive today. Here are some flowers that may help you to communicate the message you want to share with a special mom in your life.
Mother's Day Carnations CARNATIONS
Perhaps the most traditional Mother's Day flower is the carnation. Pink carnations represent gratitude and love while red carnations signify admiration. White carnations are traditional flowers to give or wear in remembrance of a mother who is no longer living.
Mother's Day Roses ROSES
Very widely beloved blooms, roses of various colors convey a number of different meanings. A bouquet of mature rose blooms sends a message of gratitude. In white roses signify virtue, purity, and reverence. Yellow roses bespeak devotion. A rose symbolizes grace in a medium pink hue, gratitude in a dark pink color, and youthful joy in light pink.
A bright and cheerful flower, the sunflower is a colorful addition to a bouquet. It also sends a message of adoration and respect. Gerbera daisies have a similarly joyful look in their myriad colors.
