Mother's Day Around the World · Mother's Day Statistics


Mother's Day can be traced back to the 1600s when the ancient Greeks paid respects to mother goddesses, Cybele and Rhea. This established a special day being set aside to celebrate one's Mother.

On May 10th 1908, the first Mother's Day observation was held in Grafton, West Virginia. This day commemorated the death of Anna Jarvis's mother. In general Anna Jarvis has been credited for generating the idea of Mother's Day in North America. Anna Jarvis played a major role in trying to get the government to establish a national holiday to honor mothers. On May 9th 1914, President Woodrow Wilson declared the second Sunday in May Mother's Day.


Pamper Your Mother

Although your mother should be pampered everyday, Mother's Day should be extra special. Flowers are a perfect gift for any mother. All mother's love flowers, so show Mom just how much you truly appreciate her and send her a beautiful fresh arrangement of flowers. If you really want to make it an extra sweet day, add a box of chocolates to the bouquet.

Ideas for Mother's Day

You can accent this special day with many different types of floral arrangements. Here are a few ideas for Mother's Day, sure to make your mom smile!

  • Serve your mom breakfast in bed, complete with an arrangement of her favorite fresh cut flower on the side.
  • Personalize mom's arrangement by including her favorite flowers or favorite color in it.
  • Pick an arrangement that goes with mom's taste or personality. If she is upbeat and active, an arrangement with vibrant orange and pink flowers such as our Fiesta bouquet would suit her nicely. If she is more traditional, a good choice would be more cream colored or pastel colored flowers, such as our Pretty In Pink bouquet.
  • Try to suit mom's interests. If she is a gardener send her something to give her joy all season long. Good ideas would be azaleas or lavender plants.
