For the mom who was always calm and gracious through all the mischief you hatched in childhood, The Manor, with its serene pink and ivory roses, ranunculus, lavender, and eucalyptus, is a fitting expression of how much she means to you.
The Luna is right for free-spirited hippie moms who embarrassed you terribly as a child by feeding your friends her inexpertly-made granola cookies instead of Oreos and who took you to music festivals to hear some of the greatest songs ever. A Bohemian mix of blue, ivory, and lavender roses, snapdragons, delphinium, and rebellious thistles thank her for a magical and wonderful childhood.
Mothers-in-law are mothers you share with your partner, and they’re often your best allies. Strong and loving, they gave you one of the best things in your life. They’re wonderful grandmothers to your kids too.
The ideal floral bouquet for the ideal mother-in-law is The Portia, with its shades of vivid purples and textural eucalyptus.
A stepmom is a very special person who becomes an extra or bonus mother and a loving presence in your life.
If you’re looking for the perfect bouquet for your stepmom, The Verona, with a symphony of pink roses and red hypericum berries, is a classic choice to express your friendship and love.
