Mother's Day Gift Guide
May 4th, 2015
Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and the Plantshed team is hard at work to send out the best flower arrangements and gifts to make mom happy. The traditional Mother's Day flower is a carnation, either pink carnations given to mothers to represent love for them, or white carnations worn in respect for those mothers who are no longer with us. To provide a refreshing change from tradition, peonies are rising up in popularity for Mother’s Day flowers due to their limited availability year round. Peonies make an impressive statement in flower arrangements once they are fully opened up. This year we've integrated peonies into many of our arrangements, like these:
They are beautiful, at peak freshness this time of year, and produce something slightly different than classic carnations or roses. If you're having trouble picking out a specific gift for mom, think about her favorite flowers and/or colors and consider making an arrangement using our 'Create Your Own' feature. Picking out your own flowers has never been easier. With this new easy-to-use feature for Plantshed customers, you can make an containers. From traditional to unique, lavish to simple, the 'CYO' feature can help anyone give a personal touch to his or her arrangement of choice.
For those looking for "ready to go" gifts, Plantshed makes Mother’s Day even easier with an array of floral designs and gift baskets that will be gift wrapped and hand-delivered right to her door. This Mother’s Day, we have several featured arrangements, handcrafted specifically for the holiday and available for a limited time only. “Mom’s Radiant Garden” is a gorgeous, vibrant collection of multicolored roses and ranunculus. The orange wooden box it is arranged in can be used again and again afterwards.
“Mom’s Pitcher of Peonies” is an aromatic collection of pink and white peonies and lilac, arranged in a reusable white ceramic pitcher. If you decide not to go with fresh flowers, succulent dish gardens, hydrangeas, and phalaenopsis orchids are popular plant gifting options. Mom deserves the best!
