It might sound a little cliche, but one of my favorite parts of Mother's Day is waking up to a surprise bouquet. I never know what color or type of flowers there will be, and the fact that my kiddo was the one who picked them out makes it such a sweet tradition. And if my group of fellow mommy friends are any indication, an awesome arrangement is still a top way to celebrate the mom in your life. So you might be interested to know all about the best deals from the 1-800-FLOWERS Mother's Day sale. No matter your budget, style, or particular needs, there is a breathtaking bouquet for it all.
If you're wondering why flowers are such a big deal this time of year, you're not alone. In my findings, as it turns out, flowers have long since been a popular way to love, honor, and remember mothers. In fact, in Victorian era England, "children who worked away from home were able to take the Sunday off to visit their mothers and often picked up flowers, which they shared with their mothers in her honor," as 1-800-FLOWERS noted. Eventually, "Anna Jarvis started a letter writing campaign to establish an official Mother’s Day holiday after her own mother passed away — President Woodrow Wilson made it an official national holiday in 1914."
The best news is that there is a special code just for you. 1-800-FLOWERS has you covered this Mother's Day with 15 percent of your purchase (any off the site) when you use the code word ROMPER, and it's valid through May 31 — that's way later than Mother's Day, even, so you can buy a gorgeous arrangement for yourself or a loved one after the holiday just because.
Here are some beautiful offerings from their special Mother's Day collection to get you started.
