It is said that when you marry your husband or wife, you marry the entire family. This is especially true of mothers; before you, mom was likely the most important relationship your spouse ever had! There are often many emotions involved in the mother-in-law relationship. Mom has stepped back to let her son walk off with another woman; or is watching her baby girl gain a new best friend and confidante. That’s why we love that mothers-in-law get their own day to celebrate their special relationship with a growing family. If you love your mother-in-law like your own family, October 25th is the day to tell her so!
As you might expect, the most requested color for Mother-in-Law Day mirrors that of the traditional Mother’s Day – pink carnations are just as popular with in-law floral arrangements and for good reason! The pink carnation is the official flower of a mother’s love. It doesn’t get much more meaningful than that.

But a nationwide poll of florists shows that much like all holidays, it is increasingly becoming acceptable – and even trendy – to make bold and unique choices to honor all kinds of moms. When sending flowers to a special mother-in-law, the options are endless! Gerbera daisies and sunflowers denote cheerfulness and friendliness; a purple iris symbolizes wisdom, and lilies exhibit beauty and admiration. Choosing flowers, both by color and traditional meaning, is one way to build a bouquet that reflects her specific personality perfectly. Including a card that explains the meaning of each bloom, and why you chose it especially for her, would be a sentimental touch.
