The ancient Greek and Romans honored their mothers in their ceremonies and rituals. In fact, mothers have held a place of prestige in family and society for millennia – however, the official recognition of Mother’s Day is only about 100 years old. The day was created by a woman named Anna Jarvis, who successfully saw the day named a national holiday in 1914 – oddly enough, in the latter years of her life, Ms. Jarvis fought to have the day removed from the calendar, citing that it had become too commercial. Although the day is an economic windfall for many industries, the sentiments behind the cards, gifts, dinners and s are still as heartfelt as ever.
Sending s is a tradition on Mother’s Day; but this year, how about sending a bouquet that has deep significance? The language of s is well known by florists, but not as much by the general population – so here is a quick Mother’s Day guide to creating a gorgeous bouquet that is as meaningful as it is beautiful.
