Mother’s Day is a big deal for the floral industry—some have even called it the “Superbowl of Flowers”—and we here at Griffin’s Floral Design understand why. Flowers have been with us since ancient times, evolving over millennia into the enticing blossoms we know and love today. Flowers have always been used for nourishment, an invaluable part of the life cycle for various animals. They have been prized for their beauty, their ability to bring nature inside, their aesthetic appeal, and countless other qualities. They are common and yet rare, groomed indoors and yet often found growing in the wild. On May 13th, we give them to our mothers because of their many virtues, not least of which is that flowers can articulate how we feel where language falls short.
Every good florist will have a variety of designs on hand to suit the incredible range of mothers out there. Whether you offer an elegant presentation of a dozen roses or a youthful, modern cube of vibrant tulips, the flowers you give should be well-matched to the recipient. There are some pieces that anyone would love, and we think Paisley Sunny Delight is one of those. This arrangement, with its yellow roses and daises, white tulips and triumphant stalks of blue delphinium, is sheer loveliness. For extra texture, sky blue hydrangea is in here too. This is like a sunny day in a gorgeous container.
Consider the tastes and preferences of the mama you’re giving flowers to, but if you’re truly stumped, select something with an appealing mix of favorite blooms.
