The Best Mother's Day Flowers to Brighten Her Day

Believing in the power of color, I created this bouquet for you to tell Mom how she brightens your world!

The World Needs More Color - Especially Now

Hi friends – I’m so thrilled to share a big announcement with you today…

I have partnered with FTD and ProFlowers to create a special flower arrangement for Mother’s Day called the “You Color My World” arrangement.

A little background about this partnership… When the brand approached me, I was immediately on board! Who doesn’t love flowers? Especially now, we all need to be spreading good cheer!

As the brand outlined the Mother’s Day Here’s to Her campaign, I became even more excited. I would get to work with their head floral designer to bring my colorful vision to life. What a dream!

Right away, I knew I wanted this to be a jolt of happiness to each woman who received these flowers. After all, who among us couldn’t use a special dose of rainbow and sunshine floral goodness this Mother’s Day?

Keep reading for more details on the Mother’s Day flower arrangement I designed and all the details you need to know to order it yourself…

How to Pick the Very Best Mother’s Day Flowers

Before we get into details about the “You Color My World” flower arrangement, let’s cover a few frequently asked questions about Mother’s Day flowers…

When should I send Mother’s Day flowers?

Well, Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 10 this year. So, plan ahead so that your flowers arrive in a timely fashion.

If you’re like me and prone to forget, why not seize the moment and order flowers now? FTD and ProFlowers websites let you pick a delivery date.

So, go on… What are you waiting for? Order now – lest you forget to make Mom’s day special!

Is it safe to have flowers delivered right now?

Good news: these flowers are packaged and shipped via UPS – and they ship for free! That’s right – free shipping! The health and safety of employees and customers alike is of paramount importance. So, your flowers will be left at your door with contactless delivery.

Bonus: It’s really amazing how the flowers are packaged to stay fresh and perfectly put together!

What are the most popular flowers for Mother’s Day?

Roses, lilies, and daisies seem to be some of the most popular year after year. And we included a bit of each in our “You Color My World” flower arrangement. But of course, we put our own colorful spin on those popular Mother’s Day flowers!

What flowers symbolize motherhood?

Did you know that there is a specific flower that’s known to symbolize motherhood? Yep! It’s the carnation. Carnations have come to represent faith, love, charity, purity, and more lovely traits all associated with motherhood.

Now, truth be told, carnations aren’t always my favorite flower. But we sourced these especially pretty purple carnations for the “You Color My World” arrangement. And I have to admit – these lovely little carnations have won me over!

What color roses should I send my mom?

Well, I’m glad you asked! Different colors of roses have different meanings. Clearly, I’d steer away from romantic red roses. A great option for mom: orange roses! Orange roses are thought to express admiration in a bold way.

That’s the rose that we chose to include in the “You Color My World” flower arrangement.

To whom should I send Mother’s Day flowers?

Well, obviously your mom is a prime candidate! But even if you don’t have a mother in your life, I bet there are mother figures who have led and guided you along the path of life. I’d suggest honoring anyone who has played a mothering role in your life with some flowers!

Furthermore, the “You Color My World” arrangement is actually perfect to send to anyone right now! Maybe you’re missing a friend or family member while we are in isolation. Or maybe you want to repay a good deed. Or maybe you just want to spread some cheer to some friends. For any and all of these occasions, the “You Color My World” arrangement is perfect!
