Poodle in A Basket made from Chrysanthemums
I was given the opportunity to ask Julie's advice regarding flowers for Mother's Day. Here's what she had to say.
Every flower is beautiful. When choosing flowers for a special mom in your life, be sure to think about her personality and what type of mom she is to you. For example, if your mom is a free spirit, I would recommend giving her gerbera daisies. If she is a Red Carpet Mom, roses may be perfect for her. Also, tulips are in season around this time period - so take advantage of them.
What unique flowers are in season now? Tulips and Peonies.
What are your personal favorite flowers for Mother's Day ?
Just like children, it is hard to pick a favorite. I love all flowers that I see. If I had to choose, I would say hydrangea and tulips.
What kinds of arrangements would you recommend that could be left on the table as we enjoy Mother's Day dinner?
I would recommend any arrangement or centerpiece that is low, so you are able to hold a conversation with everyone at the table. Any type of flower will accent a dinner table nicely.
