How To Make A Mothers Day Arrangement In 5 Easy Steps
There’s no better way to show mom how much you care than by making her a beautiful floral arrangement. We’ve rounded up tips to help you make her one she’ll love!
1. Where To Start
A gift of fresh flowers is one of the most thoughtful and memorable ways to show your love on Mothers Day. First, decide which flowers you’ll use as the focal point for your arrangement. If you’re not sure, try to find a flower that heralds spring and new life. Once you’ve decided on the main flowers, add in smaller flowers and textural elements to fill in around them. The key is to be sure that your arrangement isn’t just full of flowers; it also has a sense of depth and balance.
When arranging flowers, it’s important to choose blooms that are both beautiful and meaningful. For instance, alstroemerias can have a variety of meanings based on their color, from representing romance to friendship. They’re also a great choice if you want to add color to your Mothers Day floral arrangement without sacrificing any sentiment. Pair this flower with garden roses and other bright accent flowers to create a colorful bouquet that she will love.
3. Garden Roses
A bouquet of garden roses is a classic Mothers Day flower. They come in a variety of colors from red to white, lavender to pink and even orange. If your mother is a romantic, you’ll want to choose a dark pink rose. But if you’re more interested in expressing gratitude, choose a yellow or orange rambler rose.
4. Peony Tulips
Tulips are a classic that look especially good in a variety of colors, and they have a fresh, light scent that lasts longer than many other flowers. The blooms of these beautiful plants can be incredibly large and highly saturated in color. And if you are allergic to their fragrance, you can still find plenty of varieties with little to no odor. They’re also easy to care for and can last in a vase for up to five days.
5. Extra Steps
While a bouquet of fresh flowers is always a great gift, there are a few things you can do to make it even more special. First, you can start by selecting a vase that’s appropriate for the flower arrangements you’re planning to create. Next, you can add fillers to help balance out your floral arrangement. A variety of greenery such as fern leaves, baby’s breath, Queen Anne’s lace and stock can all be used to fill in gaps and give your arrangements more shape. Once you’ve incorporated your fillers, it’s time to add the focal and accent flowers. To make this process easy, start with your main focal flower and work around it to form the overall shape and size of your bouquet.
