The idea of Mother’s Day – and the holiday’s connection to floral gifts – has been around for a long time, reaching all the way back to ancient Greece and Rome. Those cultures honored the matriarchal positions in the family and were also known to give flowers as a sign of respect. The next mention we have of a Mother’s Day type holiday references the United Kingdom in the 1600’s when “Mothering Sunday” was celebrated, and children would often pick flowers by the side of the road to give to their mothers. However, it wasn’t until 1908 that we saw Mother’s Day in the United States, the brainchild of a woman named Anna Jarvis.
And the connection between mothers and flowers has persisted, In fact, this year nearly twenty-five percent of the flowers given throughout the year will be over the Mother’s Day holiday. Of course, Robertson’s Flowers has always believed in the timeless nature of flowers as gifts; and to celebrate Mother’s Day, we have assembled a collection of luxurious and elegant flowers that we know your mother will love. Here are a few of our favorite recommendations. Because one thing hasn’t changed throughout history – our Moms deserve the very best.
