Flowers are always a good choice for Mother’s Day. Flowers symbolize love, devotion, admiration, honor and many other beautiful sentiments. And who doesn’t love flowers?

Flowers are also a perfect choice for the Mom who has everything, or doesn’t have anything she wants or needs. Flowers bring a smile to the face of the recipient any time of year, and especially Mothers Day.

Those who are miles away love sending flowers to show the mom in their lives they are thinking of them. Birth mom, stepmom, second mom, the mother of your children, grandmother, aunt—a mother is someone who loves with all her heart. And a delivery of fresh flowers for that special mother is a beautiful way to honor her this Mother’s Day. 

Carnations the Official Flower for Mother’s Day are a symbol of beauty and eternity, demonstrating the eternal love a mother has for her children.

While they are the official flowers, there are many flowers a mother will love, including roses, lilies, orchids, peonies, daisies, sunflowers, stock, larkspur, gerbera daisies and more. And of course Eden Florist has so many varieties and colors from which to choose!

A brief history of Mother’s Day:

The founder of Mother’s Day, Anna Jarvis, in 1908 distributed carnations at the first Mother’s Day service in the United States.

Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914.

But it started long before Jarvis proclaimed it a holiday. In fact, celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele, but the clearest modern precedent for Mother’s Day is the early Christian festival known as “Mothering Sunday.” (source

While dates and celebrations vary around the world, the common thread for Mother’s Day gift giving traditionally involves presenting moms with flowers, cards and other gifts.

Mother’s Day flowers are a beautiful gift, whether well-thought out and planned or for those who need to send that last-minute bouquet to send your love!
