Mother's Day Flowers: A Canadian Tradition

There’s an old saying, “No one loves you like your mother.”

Nothing could be truer than that - wouldn’t you agree?! 

Mothers are walking miracles. They have arguably the most important job of all, taking care and nurturing their children.  A mother doesn’t just support their kids but is also the glue that holds the entire family together.

Undoubtedly, we would be completely lost without them.

Mother's Day is a chance to honour and appreciate all the effort and love that a mother has given throughout her life.

And what better way to show that appreciation than the gift of Mother’s Day Flowersgirl giving flowers for mother's day

Mother's Day: A Worldwide Celebration

In Canada, Mother's Day is a holiday where people take the time to express their gratitude and thank mothers who loved them unconditionally and supported them no matter what.

People give tokens of appreciation to their mothers and other motherly figures - most notably in the form of flowers. A Mother’s Day bouquet or flower arrangement is sure to bring a smile to your mother’s face!

Flowers & Their Deeply Rooted Symbolism

For centuries flowers have been used as a way for a person to express their emotions, because each type of flower is said to represent a different meaning.

Flowers can be used to convey a message without having to say it out loud. The type of flowers given will tell the recipient exactly what the sender wants to say.

A light pink rose for example, represents desire, passion & youth. On the other hand, a cypress would portray sorrow and mystery.

The most popular flowers given on Mother's Day are:

  • Tulips
  • Roses
  • Hydrangeas
  • and carnations

All of these represent affection and passion.

If you’re at a loss as to what kind of Mother’s Day flowers to go with, you really can’t go wrong with a dozen roses for that special woman.
