Flowers for Mother's Day
Mother's Day is one of Australia's most well respected and celebrated occasions. It's a time that we all stop to think about the hard work, dedication and love that our mothers have given over the years. A time to say thank you for everything and show our appreciation. On this special day, it is customary in many countries to buy mum a bouquet of flowers as a small token of our appreciation. It's commonly known that flowers often make the best statement in terms of expressing emotions, so what better way to say “thank you” to mums around Australia.
Mother's Day Flowers
Mother’s Day. Is there a more appropriate day to send flowers to the one you love? Mother’s Day, or originally known as Mothering Day, emerged from the custom worship of mothers in ancient Greece and through Europe. The most common gift in this time was a bouquet of wild flowers picked by those who could not afford special gifts for their mothers. This tradition of giving flowers to their mothers was not just something that was seen as the easiest gift to give, but over the years became the essence of gift giving, because it wasn’t the material value of the gift, but the love and meaning behind it that really makes flowers a special gift.

In the UK, the day to express love and offer thanks to our mothers is better known as Mothering Sunday. Mothering Sunday is celebrated in the UK on the fourth Sunday of Lent, therefore with the changing date of Easter each year, the date of Mothering Sunday is also different each year. In 2012, Mothering Sunday is celebrated on the 18th March. Although Mothering Sunday is increasingly referred to as Mother's Day in the UK, its history and origins are completely different. Mothering Sunday has a very rich historical and cultural significance.
