Over 100 years ago, Anna Jarvis was so passionate about bringing recognition to the institution of motherhood that she petitioned to add Mother’s Day to the national calendar.
Her mother Ann had been a highly influential woman who had gathered mothers together after the Civil War to promote healing and reconciliation. Because of her great impact, her daughter fought to honor her and the other strong mothers of our country. In 1914, her dream was realized, and to this day, countries around the world celebrate Mothers’ Day on the second Sunday of the month.
From earliest recorded history, cultures have been honoring the matriarchs of their societies in various ways.
-The Greeks and Romans immortalized mothers in art and literature.
-In Ethiopia, a week-long festival and massive feast with the entire family showcase their appreciation for their mothers.
-Here in America, we make millions of phone calls send millions of cards and gifts, and nearly 70% of the gifts given for Mother’s Day will be flowers.
Flowers have inherent symbolic meanings that can give your arrangement a “voice”, speaking to the unique grace and beauty of your mother.

Lilies also exhibit gratitude, and the pink carnation is widely acknowledged as the “official” flower of Mother’s Day. When selecting a floral arrangement for your mother, you can choose one of our pre-designed bouquets; or use the language of flowers to create a personalized display that features the flowers that best represent her special personality.
Don’t forget to include a card that explains why you chose each flower – long after the day is gone; she will cherish your words.
