Teleflora is one of my favorite companies to work with, they always send me such gorgeous flowers for my posts on the giving the right flowers for different holidays. Yes, in my opinion, there is a right way. Of course, that way is completely subjective, but to me, it involves choosing a bouquet that really reflects the recipients tastes and making sure the arrangement comes with a little something extra that lasts longer than the flowers. Even the heartiest of flowers don’t live forever, after all!
Choosing a Meaningful Mother’s Day Flower Arrangement
Rather than just picking out the first pretty bouquet that catches your eye, take a little time to investigate the meaning behind the flowers that you’ll be giving. For example, my gorgeous Pour on the Pink bouquet from Teleflora features pink roses, pink carnations, white alstroemeria (also called Peruvian Lilies), and matsumoto asters. I looked at the meaning behind each one.
Pink roses are for friendship. Our moms are often our first friends when we’re children. Although during the teen years, we seem to rebel against that, when we grow up, Mom once again becomes one of our closest friends.
Pink carnations signify gratitude. Who deserves our gratitude more than mom?
The matsumoto asters signifies love, faith and wisdom. We all know moms are wise!
Together the Pour on the Pink bouquet is a declaration of love and friendship, a symbol of gratitude for all mom does, and an acknowledgement of her eternal wisdom.
How to keep the memory of the flowers alive forever
Flowers don’t live forever. That’s just a fact of life. You can still keep the memory of the flowers alive though! Try taking pictures (like I did) and make a nice print from them! Collect the pictures over the years and turn them into a gorgeous coffee table book. Or, you can give flowers that come with a little something extra. The vase that comes with the Pour on the Pink bouquet doubles as a pitcher. Clean it out and it’s perfect for holding refreshing iced-tea for an afternoon of reading on the deck.
