Flowers That Honor Your Mom’s Unique Tastes on Mother’s Day

Michigan has finally and fully emerged from the frigid winter season, as well as moved through early spring, watching as the snow drops give way to crocuses and ensuing daffodils and tulips. Now May is upon us, which means it’s time to start planning for the most important holiday of the month: Mother’s Day. And, what better way to honor and surprise your special mom with a floral arrangement custom-made to suit her unique tastes? Perhaps she is a fan of tried-and-true roses, or maybe she has a penchant for something a little more wild. No matter what, we here at VanderSalm’s Flowershop & Garden Center in Kalamazoo are ready to make your mother’s floral dreams a reality.

The Healthy Snack Mom

There’s no question that eating a healthy diet is important for your overall well-being, something that many mothers know very well. They often are the caretakers of their families, making sure that meals are fresh and flavorful and that nutritious snacks are always accessible. If this sounds like your mother — the healthy snack mom — we have an idea how you can light up her world this Mother’s Day: order a carefully-curated floral arrangement that’s bursting with peonies. These special blooms have been a staple for medicinal toolkits for over one thousand years, which honors the way your mother tirelessly nourishes everyone she loves.

The “Always-On-The-Go” Mom

These days mothers have so much on their plates, whether it’s getting into the drop-off line at school, picking up the kids from swim practice or dance lessons, managing her own business, getting to the grocery store — you get the idea. In a nutshell, she’s simply always on the go; help her catch her breath this Mother’s Day, then, with a custom arrangement of stunning anemones. Colloquially known as wind flowers, these beauties pay homage to the moms whose movement is like the wind, gentle and calming, yet powerful enough to shape the world around her. There are a host of varieties and shades, too, so you can surprise her with her favorite blooms.

The Trendy Mom

Trends seem to come and go faster than ever in the age of social media, which arguably democratized what’s popular in fashion, decor, design — you name it. No one knows this better than the trendy mom, who has her finger on the pulse of all that’s 100% in — and what is on its way out. Wondering how to celebrate your trendy mom this Mother’s Day? Consider gifting her with a carefully-curated arrangement of flowers, a classic present that never goes out of style. To add a bit of panache, make sure to include magenta protea in the mix, a fashionable flower in the hue Pantone hailed as the color of the year.

The “Say Cheese” Mom

It’s easier than ever before to hone your skills as a photographer, thanks to the savvy technology embedded into each of our smartphones. All you need to do is point and shoot, and boom, another memory is preserved forever in the cloud. That’s something the “say cheese” mom loves, as it’s a convenient way to document her family’s life without the hassle of a separate camera. Nurture that instinct on Mother’s Day this year by gifting your talented photographer mom with a classy bouquet of fresh flowers. We suggest roses, as they are super photogenic either up close or in the background of a family photo.

The Pet Mom

Not everyone wants to start a family of their own; instead, they may favor the practice of having a kitty or a pupper. These pet parents likely have rescued a cat or dog, too, giving them a new lease on life in the process. That’s a noble undertaking — one worth acknowledging on Mother’s Day just as you would someone with human kids. As for exactly how to make pet moms feel special, you’d be wise to gift her with a carefully-curated floral bouquet that brings the brightness up to 11. And just to be on the safe side, opt for a pet-safe option like gerbera daisies. That way the pet mom won’t stress if her pup manages to get into them.

Regardless of what kind of mother you’re lucky enough to have, the experts here at VanderSalm’s Flowershop & Garden Center in Kalamazoo are ready and waiting to help you. We can design a stunning flower arrangement that will make your mom appreciated and valued this Mother’s Day.
