Mother's Day Flowers

Is it Mother’s Day or Mothering Sunday? And how did this celebration of motherhood begin?

Mother’s Day or Mothering Sunday?  And how did this celebration of motherhood begin?

THE ORIGINAL “MOTHERING SUNDAY”

Mothering Sunday began as a religious event in the 16th Century, and had absolutely no connection to mothers at all. The word “mothering” was referring to the “mother church”, which was the main church or cathedral of the area. It became a tradition that, on the fourth Sunday of Lent, people would return to their mother church for a special service. This pilgrimage was apparently known as “going a-mothering”, and became something of a holiday event, with domestic servants traditionally given the day off to visit their own families as well as their mother church.

So if Mothering Sunday is completely unrelated to Mother’s what is Mothers Days?

MOTHER’S DAY

It is actually a completely unrelated American event, invented by a woman called Anna Jarvis in 1908. Her initial inspiration was a desire to honour her own mother, who had been a militant peace activist during the US Civil War. Anna Jarvis’s growing ambition to create a formal “Mother’s Day” for all American mothers was literally laughed out of the room at first, with officials jokingly saying that it might lead to a “Mother-in-Law’s Day”. Anna Jarvis wasn’t easily put off, though, and in 1914 US President Woodrow Wilson officially signed Mother’s Day into existence.

Here are some tips on how to decide on what flowers to give your mother on Mother’s Day:

So, where should you start?  Deciding what flowers to buy can be daunting with the number of different colours and varieties available.

Start with your mum’s favourite flowers and favourite colour. If you cannot recall that then we recommend choosing seasonal flowers as you know there will be plenty of supply.  However, a traditional rose teamed with purple Eustoma looks stunning, as seen in one of our favourite bouquets Provence.

Pre-Order!

Next, make sure you order your mothers day bouquet early.

So many people will buy their flowers last minute or grab flowers from the local shop on the way over to their mum’s place. We advise you to order your Mother’s Day flowers several days in advance. It is one of the florists’ busiest days of the year so the sooner you place your order, the better chance you have of finding exactly what you want and getting it delivered on time. However, most florists including Lilac & Willow will still take orders on Mother’s Day. But it is still better to order early.

Shop Mother’s Day Bouquets from Your Local Florist

We all agree that we want the highest-quality Mother’s Day bouquet for our budget. It’s best to find a real local florist with a real address and phone number. That will give you flexibility. You can always visit the flower shop and grab your bouquet on a go. This way the flowers would be the freshest possible.

No doubt the flowers you choose will be stunning but Mum’s will always focus on the words on the cards to bring warm feelings to your mum.  A card that is either funny or heartfelt will be sure to make your mum laugh or cry.
