A Guide to Buying Mother’s Day Flowers

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, but there’s still time to get your mom a beautiful bouquet of flowers. However, don’t just run off to the nearest grocery store and get the first bouquet you find. Your gift should be something special, so follow these few tips to get something your mom deserves.

Buy her favorite flowerA Guide to Mother's Day Flowers

While there are plenty of staple Mother’s Day flowers, you should avoid getting the same thing as everyone else. A great way to personalize your flowers is to buy your mother’s favorite. She’ll not only love the look of them, but it’ll also show how much you really care.

Go out-of-the-box with succulents

You don’t always have to get a bouquet. Succulent gardens are becoming increasingly popular, and they’re super easy to care for if your mom doesn’t have a green thumb.

Pair flowers with chocolates or other gifts

A bouquet of flowers can be a great add-on to other gifts you’re giving your mom. You could buy her a box of her favorite chocolates, or get her something that’s been on her wish-list for a few months.

Buy a vase

While not completely necessary, you do want to make sure that your mom has a place to put your flowers once she has them. Try getting a vase that goes well with the design and colors of her home.

Get long-lasting orchids

If you want your flowers to last, then opt for the kind with a longer lifespan. Orchids are the best choice, as they can live for a longer time that most flowers, with a life-span of up to 2-3 months.

Now that you’ve got some ideas, it’s time to buy those flowers. Here at Mills Florist, we offer a wide variety of Mother’s Day Flowers that your mom is sure to love. Call us at 650-326-3443 for more information.
