Flower Arrangements for Mother’s Day

If food is the way to a man’s heart, than flowers are surely the way to a woman’s. This year Mother’s Day falls on Sunday March 15 this year and instead of filling our post with recipes, we decided to focus on creating beautiful flower arrangements for our lovely mums.

Here are 5 of the prettiest flower bouquets and arrangements we’ve come across. Instead of buying a bunch, its so simple to put together one yourself using the right flower combinations. We’ve listed which flowers work best on each bouquet.

flowers in paper bagsThis simple bunch is tied together using: Tulips, Veronica, Ranunculus, Anemones and Eucalyptus. Place the flowers into a clear plastic bag filled with water, tie up the top with some string to stop the water from spilling and place the water and flowers into a brown paper bag. Tie together with a piece of string.

Flowers in Mason JarWe love the simplicity and elegance of this bunch. It can be left on the dining/kicthen table for days after. Take a bunch of white and pale pink roses, yellow Peonies, Daisies or Aster and  and a bunch of Gardenias. You can also buy some birch twig and place it withing the arrangement. Place the bunch in a large vintage mason jar and decorate the jar top with some old rope or any material of your choice.

Vintage Flower ArrangementHow understated is this? We love this this setting for a Mother’s Day tea or brunch. You can use your own plates and tea cups or a tea pot. You will need some birch twigs and green plants you get grab from the garden. Add in a few pink roses, some Anastasia spider flowers, berries of choice and we like to incorporate some Baby’s Breath as well. Fill the tea pot or cup with water, place in the flowers. Fill up the plates with some Baby’s Breath or flower of choice and tie it all together with some string or a ribbon.

lavender FlowersSimple is best and this lavender bunch is the epitome of a simple but loving gesture. Lavender is soothing and relaxing and we think it’s the perfect flower for Mother’s Day. So simple, just buy some Lavender and tie the bunch with a ribbon tie. Make sure to buy Lavender at the last minute because they do dry up in a matter of days. We usually take the flowers of the stem and make tiny lavender-scented pillows with ours. A cute gesture would be to include some hand-written instructions on how to use the lavender flowers in the home  for after.

Flower WallWe saw this idea, and fell in love with it straight off. The idea of a flower wall is stunning and you can play about with the colour and flower type. It’s super easy and you don’t have to fiddle about with trying to tie up a bunch. It’s a lovely idea to get the kids involved and have some fun family time putting up flowers. We know it can ruin the wall, if you have wallpaper so do consider the type of wall you have before creating this arrangement. Jenni has used tulips, which are the prefect flower type for spring and March.

Have a beautiful Mother’s Day.
