The best traditional flowers for Mother’s Day


Mothering Sunday is one of the few days of the year when you can genuinely express your love and appreciation for the most important person in your life: mum.

The holiday is steeped in tradition, with supposed origins reaching all the way back to Medieval times. Today, Mother’s Day has become synonymous with flowers, and in this handy blog, we’ve gathered the most wonderfully traditional blooms that perfectly sum up mums across the country. Let’s get started.


Who could say no to showstopping orchids? These enchanting flowers exude a vibrant array of colours and seamlessly slip into various interiors. Orchids traditionally symbolise love, strength and beauty, the perfect encapsulation of mums if ever there was one. Orchids also come in a wide range of colours, so you’ll likely have plenty of options to choose from; check out our specialised orchid offerings to see for yourself.


It wouldn’t be Mother’s Day without a brimming bunch of tulips. Tulips are a Mother’s Day staple, and for good reason too. These fabulous spring blooms burst with exuberant colours and fit wonderfully into professional arrangements. Our Spring Dance Tulip Bouquet and First Day Of Spring arrangements are our florist’s personal favourites.


As we’re sure you’ll agree, sunflowers have a unique capacity to brighten up both spaces and faces. Our florists have captured this feeling perfectly with the Rise & Shine Luxury Arrangement, a passionate design centred around sunflowers and cushioned with white roses, seasonal blooms, pussy willow and natural twisted willow. The bright yellow tones will forever be synonymous with spring and are ideal as a surprise Mothering Sunday gift.


Roses come in all shapes and sizes, with a massive choice of colours on offer too. Our florists are particularly fond of white roses and the sense of brightness they can bring to a space. End Of The Row Flowers and Fragrant Floral Hug Posy are the perfect examples, packed with the beautiful aromas of spring. If you’re looking for something with a little more colour, the Eve’s Vintage Rose Garden arrangement is the route to go down. In our eyes, these rose arrangements would make an exceptional Mother’s Day flowers gift.
