The Unique Connection of Mother’s Day and Flowers

Mother’s Day is observed worldwide in remembrance of our mothers, even though the days and months of the Day of Mother vary between nations. The Day of Mother is the opportunity to pay rich homage to the individual whose affection and concern knows no limits and who does all he can to make his children comfortable and joyful.

Flowers are often a nice present on Mother’s Day, but no presence in the world is almost the same as a mother’s care to her kids. No other contribution would do better than the roses on Mother’s Day to say special gratitude for the affection and concern they have provided for us.


The story of Mother’s Day

In praise of Rhea, Mother of the Gods, the first festival of Mother’s Day can be traced back to the spring festival in Ancient Greece. In the 1600s, a day named the Mothering Sunday was observed in England. Mothering Sunday remembered the Mother of England on the 4th Sunday of Lent (the 40th day leading up to Easter).

Julia Ward Howe first introduced as a day of reconciliation in the United States Mother’s Day in 1872. Every year, in Boston, Ms. Howe will organize Mother’s Day gatherings. The First Mother’s Day was observed in 1907 initiated by Ana Jarvis from Philadelphia. The formal declaration in 1914, made by President Woodrow Wilson, that Mother’s Day would be proclaimed a national holiday and it will be celebrated every year on the 2nd Sunday of May.

Although several countries around the world observe Mother’s Day at various times of the year, several countries are still celebrating Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May, including Denmark, Finland, Italy, Turkey, Australia, and Belgium.

On Mother’s Day, Jarvis sent 500 white sniping carnations to the Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church. That is the beginning of the custom of giving flowers on Mother’s Day.

Flowers are one of the most respected and conventional presents. Here are our suggestions for Mom’s favorite flowers:



The floral for the fashionable mum, the lady who likes modern fashions, glamorous fashions and vibrant colors, is the Orchid. They are known as the “extremely special” floral plants and come in a broad selection of colors and sizes.



Peonies create a perfect decoration for mom in tones of peach, yellow, red and occasionally even purple. These flowers reflect different items, from honor and good fortune to happy At best; peonies will develop really high, which is sure to make a showy centerpiece by arranging these blooms.



Carnations are often reduced to the role of filler with their soft and split petals, pleasant scent and long clear leaves. The flower still stayed behind bigger blooms. In reality, Mother’s Day Creator Anna Jarvis, herself, first made the carnations part of the celebration of Mother’s Day. Jarvis spread the favorite roses and white carnations of his mother at the first Mother’s Day remembrance service in 1907. And while it took another seven years for President Woodrow Wilson to make Mother’s Day official, carnations for moms are a common alternative.

The official name for the carnations, Dianthus, is recognized as the birthday flower for January from the Greek term “heavenly flower.” It is a celestial alternative for the bouquet on Mother’s Day. Different color carnations convey often different meanings, long thought to symbolize affection, interest, and differentiation. Dark red claps, for example, elicit reverence, while white claps symbolize good fortune. In addition, it is known also that rose carnations arose first from the earth, where the Virgin Mary cries at the death of Jesus, according to Christian tradition. And that is why many assume that carnations are a sign of the everlasting affection of a Woman.



Once, Shakespeare said: “A rose with a different name looks as good.” After all, not so many flowers are as profoundly ingrained as the rose in culture, folklore and story. In recent years, the roses have historically been a widely common option for bouquets from Valentine’s Day. They are a rare festival flower and because they are so beautiful, fragrant and glamorous.

Historically, though, roses were symbolically connected with childbirth. From ancient Greece, where the goddesses Isis (the perfect mother), and Aphrodite (the deity of passion and beauty) believed that roses were holy. The rose was later used in the middle Ages as the flowers’ queen and as the Virgin Mary’s emblem. As a tool for celebrating virtuous women, Pope Leo VIII also established the Order of the Golden Rose.

The elegance of the rose will symbolize so many aspects, from love (red roses) to pleasure (pink roses) and even affection (yellow roses), accessible in a range of bright colors. It makes Mother’s Day beautiful as a present to a mother, from her children.



Thinking of tulips, the Netherlands presumably recalls vast vibrant flower fields. However, did you realize that the first tulips originated from Persia and Turkey? First introduced into Europe in the 16th century, the Latinized Persian term for turban still carries its current name. It is not shocking to see that their buds look turban. Tulips in the Netherlands in the 17th century became so common that some bulbs received excellent prices-up to 10 times a professional craftsman’s annual profits. Regarding its contemporary appeal for Mother’s Day, this resides primarily in their beauty and dignity about something clearly symbolic. However, historically regarded as the spring and new life’s floral herald, tulips tend to be particularly appropriate for new mothers. And, undoubtedly, tulips are ideally appropriate for the celebration of Mother’s Day as spring blossoms. Opt for pink tulips to show comfort and intimacy, and every mom would love her a wonderful present.
