What to Consider When Ordering Mother’s Day Flowers

A gift of flowers is a beautiful and thoughtful way to treat Mom to something special on Mother’s Day. We all know that receiving flowers makes us feel happy. What’s really wonderful is that you can trigger those happy emotions in Mom by sending her gorgeous, fresh flowers too. You’ll feel good about bringing a smile to Mom’s face and she’ll get to enjoy her spectacular flowers. Here are some great tips to consider when ordering Mother’s Day flowers.

It doesn’t take a huge time commitment to order Mother’s Day flowers. Before contacting a florist, have in mind Mom’s favorite blooms or be sure to ask the florist for suggestions. Have a budget in mind and share it with the florist. By calling or visiting a reputable florist shop or browsing their on-line website you can, within minutes order a lovely, personal gift of flowers for Mom.

Be sure to order flowers from a florist connected to the top floral networks like FTD and Teleflora. By doing so you can rest assured that Mom will receive her flowers no matter where she lives. Generally, local flower orders can be delivered same day and international orders can be delivered next business day. However, during florists’ busy Mother’s Day week be sure to contact the florist several days in advance of the requested delivery date. Most local florists are connected to the FTD and Teleflora networks and they have access to the best florists in the world to fulfill your order. Mom will receive white glove treatment too, as professional florists always hand-deliver their flower orders.

Another benefit of sending florist designed flowers to Mom is that you can keep a handle on spending without settling for inferior product. Only a professional florist can offer a wide selection of fresh flowers at different price points. If your goal is to spoil Mom with an enormous bouquet of long stem roses then go for it. A reputable florist will also carry lots of moderately priced flowers as well. A single long stemmed rose, a bud vase with carnations, or a simple mixed fresh flower bouquet are all budget friendly options. Talk to your florist upfront about how much you want to spend including delivery charges.

Flowers come in so many beautiful colors, shapes and styles that you are certain to find a bunch that is perfect for Mom. In terms of color, think about what hues would match Mom’s personality. A high-energy Mom may be thrilled with a bouquet of flowers in 2012’s hottest color, a vibrant, fiery orange. If Mom prefers peaceful, calming hues then think about flowers in cream tones, white and pastels shades.

Thankfully, nature has provided flowers in a wide spectrum of colors and shapes this spring. Tulips, daisies, peonies, lilies and roses are all springtime favorites. A white orchid arrangement may elicit a modern, sophisticated vibe while a bouquet or yellow daisies can suggest a happy-go-lucky feeling. Be sure to talk to your florist about the mood you want to create with flowers. When working with a florist shop, your flowers will be hand-arranged so take advantage of the expertise that a real florist can offer.

A florist can provide made-to-order arrangements ensuring that Mom’s gift is as unique as she is. Incorporate Mom’s favorite blooms in colors that she adores and you can even bring in your own vessel or heirloom container for the florist to work with. If Mom is a bit of a green thumb then a potted plant can make a lovely Mother’s Day gift too. Potted orchids, hydrangeas and azaleas are all spring favorites that can be long lasting if properly cared for.
