McLean, VA (PRWEB) May 8, 2010
Along with their own mothers, Americans spend Mother’s Day celebrating their wives, other relatives and best friends who are moms with flowers. Mother's Day accounts for one-fourth of the floral purchases made for holidays, according to the Society of American Florists (SAF). Those Mother’s Day flowers make memorable gifts. Research shows that 92 percent of women can remember the last time they received flowers, and 89 percent say receiving flowers makes them feel special.
“With a gift of flowers, you know that someone is thinking of you right now, this very minute,” said Brad Parker, owner of MyFlorist in McLean. “It's the memory of the gift and the emotions that last forever.”
Brad offers the following advice on how to send the right message with flowers to the all the special moms in your life:
Leading Ladies. No woman – especially moms, grandmas and sisters – should live without a little TLC. A fabulous flowering plant or a garden-style arrangement with greens and soft pastel hues – no matter what the flower – will send the message that you care.
The Real Deal. Flowers are intimately – and internationally – linked with the art of romance, and for good reason says. As relationships grow, flowers become symbols of different events and milestones in our lives together. Take note of her favorite flowers – the varieties at your wedding, flowers you sent her when you first started dating or the ones she buys for herself. Those will have great meaning and impact.
The Gal Pal. Flowers that show you’re thinking of someone, but not in a sensual way, have a natural, just-picked feeling. Ask for a selection of garden-style flowers or a bright bold color palette that is fun and whimsical. A basket with a mix of flowering and green plants delivered to her door is also a sure fire winner.
