One of our favorite celebrations of the year, Mother’s Day 2024, is coming up on May 12 and we want to guide you on the journey to find the perfect gift for the woman who has given you everything. Like a hug when you really needed one. Or a warm meal when you were feeling the blues. And definitely advice (solicited and unsolicited, sorry mom). For the woman who has been your Swiss Army Knife, there are dozens of options available to honor her. But flowers, timeless, beautiful, and beloved, do it best.

1. Roses

As classic as they come, roses are a perennial favorite for Mother’s Day. Their elegant blooms and romantic connotations make them a symbol of love and admiration. While red roses traditionally symbolize love, you can opt for other hues like pink for gratitude or yellow for long-lasting friendship. Our bouquet, The Chickadee, is a timeless arrangement of yellow spray roses that will make any mom feel cherished on her special day.

2. Peonies

Known for their lush, ruffled petals and intoxicating fragrance, peonies exude elegance and grace. These blooms come in a variety of colors, from delicate pastels to vibrant corals, ensuring there’s a peony to suit every mother’s taste. Our definitive crowd favorite arrangement, The Peony, features ten stems of pink petal perfection for the mom in your life. And did you know peonies are not only beautiful but also symbolize good fortune and prosperity?

3. Tulips

With their simple yet stunning appearance, tulips are a symbol of perfect love. Available in a rainbow of colors, tulips can convey a range of emotions, from deep affection to cheerful optimism. Our arrangement, The Dutch Tulips, are a gradient of dusty pink to near red petals that makes for a striking gift. So whether you opt for traditional hues or unique shades like purple and orange, tulips are sure to brighten any mother’s day.

4. Lilies

Majestic and elegant, lilies are symbols of purity and refined beauty. Their graceful petals and heady fragrance make them a luxurious choice for Mother’s Day. Our latest bouquet, The Poem, features delicate pink and burnt orange lilies harmonizing with roses and greenery. Whether presented in a bouquet or in a tall cylinder glass vase (the best option for lilies!), lilies are sure to make a lasting impression.

5. Chrysanthemums

Radiating warmth and happiness, we think mums are the epitome of joy. With their cheerful petals and dramatic appearance, mums are guaranteed to bring a smile to any mother’s face. Our bouquet, The Melody, showcases striking purple mums amongst roses and mini calla lilies. Symbolizing devoted love, longevity, and happiness, mums are a heartfelt way to express your love and appreciation on Mother’s Day.


At the end of the day, the best flowers for Mother’s Day 2024 are the ones that resonate most with the personality and preferences of the mom in your life. Whether she adores the classic beauty of roses, the fragrant allure of peonies, or the cheerful charm of mums, a thoughtful arrangement of flowers is sure to make her feel appreciated and loved. So this Mother’s Day, say it with flowers and make your Mother’s day as beautiful as she is.
