Mother’s Day Flower Buying Guide

It is an undeniable fact that our mothers do so much to keep us happy, healthy, and raise us to be the best we can be.  With so much dedication to our care, it is important that we all do something special, even just a small gesture, to thank our Mothers for everything. Flowers are an ever popular choice as a Mother’s Day gift and we want to help navigate your way to the perfect choice for your Mother’s Day flowers:

The Flowers of Mothers Day:


  • A traditional flower of Mother’s day. Carnations range in colour from classic white to vibrant pinks to lush purples and burgundy. These frilly-petal flowers have become less common in florist but they a still a favorite around Mother’s Day.


  • An extremely popular flower for both Mothers Day and in general, peonies are a top seller. Available in white and light pink, these voluminous and feathery flowers are sure to leave your mother in awe.


  • With a fragrance that will completely fill the room, hyacinth are a wonderful flower to use in arrangements. Their lovely scent combined with their lush appearance and variety of colours will be a sensory dazzlement for Mom.

Creating your own bouquet:

When you come into the shop looking for a bouquet for Mom, there are three main questions you need to consider to assist in making your choice:

        • How much would you like to spend on the arrangement?

        • Would you like the flowers arranged in a vase or as a wrapped bouquet?

        • Is there a specific flower or colour theme you would like to use?

With this information, our staff members have a better idea of what you are looking for and can help you pick out the perfect arrangement for your mom.

If you’re looking for some other ideas, we had our designers create arrangements with a tea party theme this year.  You can take a look at our Mother’s Day features here.

Long Lasting Options:

If cut flowers aren’t exactly what you want to get Mom, consider a potted plant or planter basket from our selection of botanicals! Made to almost any price range, we can put together a basket full of flowering and green plants that will stay beautiful for your mom for months. We also have a large selection of single orchid plants that will stay in bloom and beautiful for months.
