In the LA region there are many ethnically distinct ways to express love for Mom on her special day. Latin American Mother’s Day – Dia de Las Madres, observed on May 10th the same day as U.S. Mother’s Day this year -- is one of the most important holidays in Mexico, El Salvador and Guatemala. 48 percent of LA County residents are Latino, according to the Pew Research Center.
"It's a Mexican custom to celebrate Dia de Las Madres on the eve of the May 10th holiday," says Gersain Bustos, Owner of Growers Direct at California Flower Mall. "Many LA Latino families continue the tradition of honoring Mothers on Saturday night with flower bouquets, a mariachi serenade and dinner cooked for them. Some families bring Moms here after dinner to pick her favorite flowers” Bustos adds.
Mother's Day is the third-largest card-sending holiday in the United States, but ranks as the number one card-sending season for Hispanics, even higher than Christmas and Valentine's Day. Arlette Torres, Editorial Director for Sinceramente Hallmark who was born in Mexico underscores the importance of mothers to Hispanic consumers. "Mothers are beloved, deeply respected, revered figures in the Hispanic community," she says. "Her children view her as the source of goodness and love, affection, warmth and forgiveness. She is the idealized female figure, unequaled by other women."
"Flowers have always reigned as one of the top Mother’s Day gifts," says National Retail Federation spokeswoman Kathy Grannis. Mother’s day is second only to the winter holidays in retail spending the National Retail Federation reports. More than two-thirds of celebrants plan to buy flowers to the tune of $2.4 billion, according to an NRF consumer spending survey.
“This is one of Downtown LA’s most colorful, exciting urban destinations; it’s lush with millions of fresh flowers that dazzle the senses. Every stem in every local florist shop, supermarket, warehouse store and street corner probably started here – so it's smart to shop for flowers wholesale or at deep discount prices where the floral trade goes to get Moms the freshest quality flowers at the lowest price,” Chatoff says.
