Mothering Sunday Flowers: Sunday, March 10th

Mother's Day Teacup and Saucer Arrangement

In the UK and Ireland, Mothering Sunday is always on the fourth Sunday of Lent- Sunday, March 10th in 2013. And while Mothering Sunday is sometimes referred to as Mother’s Day, it is not celebrated on the same day as the North American Mother’s Day occasion, which falls in May..

Historically, the UK’s Mothering Sunday was the day when children who had left home to work as domestic servants or apprentices were given the day off to visit their mothers and family. While churchgoers in England would usually worship at their neighborhood parish or ‘daughter’ church, during Lent, parishioners would attend the ‘mother’ or main church of the area. It was this tradition of families reuniting at the ‘mother’ church that came to be known as Mothering Sunday. As working children walked along laneways to reach the main church, they would pick flowers to give to their mums once reunited.

Today, flowers are still a beloved way to express sentiments of admiration and appreciation for mums on Mothering Sunday. Professional florists are busy fulfilling orders for beautiful Mother’s Day flower baskets, arrangements and hand-tied flowers. Along with flowers, some families select chocolates or even wine to be delivered with the flower order to treat Mum to an “extra special” gift. Mother’s Day flower options range from lovely spring mixed flower bouquets to roses, daisies and tulips. Remember to choose flower colors based on Mum’s preferences.

No matter that Mum lives thousands of miles away, look to a professional local florist affiliated with a network of worldwide florists making ordering flowers for UK or ordering flowers for Ireland Mothering Sunday flowers delivery easy and worry-free!

In the earlier post you’ve learned about the meaning of color in Valentine’s Day roses, and perhaps you’ve made your selection of the perfect Valentine’s Day roses that you’ll dazzle them with.
But like most of us you’re probably unsure about the number of roses to give them. You’ve probably heard people say that each number of roses has a meaning behind it to convey a message.

Valentine’s is in 14 days so we decided to do research on the topic and come up with a list explaining what each number of roses conveys:

1 – love at first sight
2 – mutual love and affection
3 – I love you
6 – I miss you
7 – I’m crazy about you
9 – we’ll be together forever
10 – your love is perfection
11 – you are my treasure
12 – please me mine
13 – friends forever
15 – forgive me, I’m sorry
20 – sincere feelings
21 – dedicated to you
24 – I’m yours
25 – congratulations!
26 – you complete me
33 – I love you with great affection
36 – head over heels in love
38 – every moment with you is treasure
40 – my love is genuine
50 – unconditional love
99 – I will love you forever
100 – you are my true love
101 – you are my one and only love
108 – mariage proposal
365 – I love you every day

Now that you know about the significance in number of roses given, you can put together a well crafted, perfect expression of your love. Talk to your favorite florist about your specific order needs and creative ideas in mind.
That extra touch can come from your own designed Valentine’s Day bouquet or arrangement of flowers, and they will absolutely love the artful you! Pick the right number.
