Showing our mothers love and appreciation is appropriate every day of the year, but the special day set aside each May allows us to intentionally take the time to slow down, reconnect and remember all that she means to us. For as long as there have been families, there have been rituals, ceremonies, and celebrations to honor the matriarchs. Although the way that cultures celebrate may be vastly diverse and unique, the common theme is the same – love.
This year, Mother’s Day falls on May 10th and is the perfect opportunity to return all her love in a tangible way. Think about all that your mother has done for you and everything she means in your life.
The floral design experts at Boyd’s Flowers can take those memories and fond thoughts and turn them into an arrangement with deep meaning. Traditionally, people have recognized the “language of flowers”, and their specific meanings can help to tell the story of your mother, and how you feel about her.
Pink roses show appreciation – for all she has done for you in your life.
Pink tulips showcase happiness – for the countless times she has made you smile.
White chrysanthemums signify loyalty – no one has stood by your side like your mother has and always will.

Mother’s Day has evolved and changed since the very day was established in 1914 by Anna Jarvis.
The founder’s original intent was to set aside a family day of prayer that honored the mother. Over the years Mother’s Day has also been used as a backdrop for events that championed women‘s and children’s rights.
The day is now seen as much more of a commercialized holiday. Although true that this Sunday in May is one of the biggest gift-giving days of the year, the sentiment of appreciation and love remains the same.
