Need a new and creative way to show Mom how much you love her this Mother’s Day?  Bring her home’s landscape to life with potted plants and planter boxes brimming with beautiful flowers.  My Flower Service will come out and plant fresh flowers four times a year so your mom always has something new to admire.

If you’re more interested a DIY garden, planting perennials is a simple, yet lovely gesture.  Did you know that each birth month has designated flowers that hold a unique meaning?  Consider adding your mom’s signature flower to her flower garden this year for a thoughtful, personalized gift.

When mom rings in her January birthday add pink carnations that symbolize undying love, or snowdrops that symbolize hope.

If she blows out the candles in February, violets or primrose are the right choices.  Violets represent loyalty and faithfulness, as primrose represents patience, kindness, and gentleness.

Whether she celebrates like a lion or a lamb, a March Mom’s birthday flower is a daffodil symbolizing unequalled love, or a jonquils that can send a message of domestic joy and friendship.

Shower mom with daisies or sweetpeas if her birthday is in April.  Daisies represent innocence and loyal love and the delicate blooms of sweetpeas bring blissful pleasure.

If dancing around the May-pole commemorates her birthday, Lily of the Valley and Hawthorne are the way to go.  Lily of the Valley speaks sweetness, while Hawthorne gives hope and supreme happiness.

A warm summer doesn’t compare to a mom born in June.  Her flower is roses in a variety of shades with different meanings from “I love you” to “perfect happiness.”  Or you could opt for honeysuckle that whispers of the everlasting bonds of love.

July moms are firecrackers whose garden should be graced by white larkspurs for their happy nature, or water lilies that express purity and majesty.

If she takes the cake in August, gladiolas or poppies are her signature flower; one representing calm integrity, the latter representing anything from pleasure to wellness and success.

When she’s opening her presents in September, add asters symbolizing powerful love, or morning glories who express affection.

Don’t get spooked if she celebrates in October.  Her flowers are marigolds; a sign of warm or fierce undying love balanced by her other flower cosmos for order, peace, and serenity.

If you’re Thankful every November to sing Happy Birthday to Mom, red chrysanthemums say, ‘I love you’ while white represent pure love.

When you’re decking the halls with holly, you’re also celebrating December mom’s birthday with her signature flower.  Holly communicates a wish for domestic happiness.

Time is short, so contact My Flower Service today at 513-617-9305 to plan the perfect flower garden for Mom!
