In Victorian times, fresh flower selection was very limited, and people used particular assortments of flowers to convey specific messages. With the abundance of choice at your local florist in present day there are no rules - it is the sentiment that gives a bouquet of flowers its meaning. You may choose a favourite colour or flower that you know the receiver will love, or because it reminds you of them. And nothing tells Mum how much you mean to her like a thoughtful bouquet, wrapped and hand delivered with a big smile and a warm hug.
However, if you want to add an additional layer of meaning to your gift this Mother's Day, you can choose the following flowers for their traditional symbolism.
Mother's Day isn't about buying gifts, it's about showing love and thoughtfulness. Why not try wrapping your gift in traditional brown kraft this year, then embellish with flowers from the garden. Finish with a photograph of you and your mum as a card. It's the small details that show love #inkyco #mothersday #madeinmelbourne #wrapping
