Mother's Day Flowers early
by Flower Experts Editor on February 16th
Mother's Day is celebrated all across the globe, and is a special day dedicated to the honouring and celebrating of mothers. In different countries and cultures Mother's Day is signified and celebrated through many different customs and traditions, though in the vast majority of countries an important aspect of Mother's Day is the giving of flowers. In North America, Asia and Australasia, for example, it is traditional to give carnations on Mother's Day and many people also wear them.
Uk Mother's Day is on Sunday 30th March in 2014.
Nowadays many people choose to move away from their home town and perhaps even emigrate, so they use flower delivery services to send their mothers flowers on Mother's Day. Whilst
many feel that is traditional to have their mothers receive flowers on Mothering Sunday itself, people are increasingly choosing to have flowers delivered to their mothers on the
Thursday or Friday before Mother's Day. Though initially this may not seem traditional, there are actually a number of great reasons for doing so.
Firstly, it will be a nice surprise! Mothers expect to receive flowers on Mothering Sunday, so it is nice to have them when they aren't expected. Additionally, though the sentiment
behind Mother's Day if of course a great one, telling your mother you love her on this day can sometimes appear to lack genuine emotion as it is somewhat compulsory. Sending
flowers on a different day shows that you're doing so because you want to, not because you feel like you have to.
There are also practical reasons as to why you might want to send flowers on the Thursday or Friday before Mother's Day. Firstly, it is likely to be less expensive to have flowers
delivered on these days. Secondly, if you plan to spend Mother's Day having a nice family day out your mother might miss the flower delivery. Therefore it would be a good idea to
have the flowers delivered beforehand.
