Mother's Day: Celebrating All The Mamas (And Planning Ahead!)

Hey there!

Mother's Day is just around the corner and if there’s one thing (or two or three) we’ve learned over the years, it’s that it’s never too early to start planning a celebration fit for the queens we call mom. In other words, it’s time to rally up the troops (or yourself… total respect for a party planning committee of one!) and get to coordinating, planning, purchasing, and doing all the things needed to make sure the mom in your life feels special, loved, and appreciated this Mother’s Day.

Whether you're a fully bloomed expert at Mother's Day festivities or a newbie looking for some inspiration, we've got you covered with some of our favorite ways to make this Mother's Day one to remember!


Preparing for the Mother’s Day

First things first, think about what makes your mom, glam-ma, or person being celebrated feel special. Is it a homemade breakfast in bed, a relaxing day at the spa alone, or a fun family picnic in the park? Whatever it is, make sure to plan ahead (aka don’t wait until the last minute) and consider what will make her day truly memorable.

We asked the moms of team Farmgirl what makes them feel the most celebrated this time of year, and here were the top answers:

Handmade gifts from the littles. This is a mom-fave because of its sentimental value, the thought that the child (and, let’s be honest, another caring adult) put into making something special, and, well, it’s just straight up adorable.

A parenting break. Some of our moms so appreciate when the other parent takes over parenting duties for the day (because everyone deserves a break, right?). If your spouse or the mom in your life is one of these, hear that and run with it!

Something shiny (did someone say diamonds?). Shine bright like a diamond on Mother’s Day and consider gifting the mom in your life with something truly special like a new charm on her bracelet, pair of sparkly earrings, or even a diamond watch (if that’s her thing).

Quiet uninterrupted solo-time… with a little or loved one close by. For those who don’t love or need to be fully alone to unwind, an alternative preference here at Farmgirl is to combine the best of both worlds. For the book-loving mom (we love a good romance novel), get the next book in her series and let her read uninterrupted while the family sits around doing their own thing.

Flowers that are actually pretty and not totally corny. You didn’t think we could not name our favorite flowers, did you? Our moms love the idea of sending flowers for Mother’s Day and receiving a bouquet that is beautifully designed and not “cookie cutter” boring. We know a thing or two about that! You can shop our Mother’s Day Flowers here.


Get The Littles Involved

Getting the kids involved in Mother's Day celebrations can be a blast… and makes total sense, right? After all, they’re usually the biggest piece to making a mom, well, a mom. Help them create homemade cards, crafts, or even a special song or dance to perform for mom (which will totally bring out a little giggle… trust us!). You could also plan a fun activity for the whole family to enjoy together, like a nature walk, a meal at her favorite restaurant, or a movie night in with mom's favorite films and takeout.

Our biggest tip here? Whatever you and the littles spin up for mom, just be sure to handle any cleanup or additional tasks created as a result. Baking cookies together? Clean up the mess after and let mom relax. Going to mom’s favorite brunch spot? Make the reservation and organize getting the kids ready without her. It’s all in the details!


Choose the Perfect Gift (we love fresh flowers… but you knew that ;))

When it comes to choosing the perfect Mother's Day gift, we love the idea of a keepsake (like a homemade gift or specialty gift) and a fresh bouquet of flowers to brighten the day. When choosing a mom-worthy bouquet, go OTT (that’s over-the-top!) because she totally deserves it. At Farmgirl Flowers, our handmade Mother’s Day bouquets are made with love and care, using only the freshest, most beautiful blooms. Whether your mom loves classic Mother’s Day roses, vibrant peonies, or elegant lilies, we've got the perfect flower bouquet to make her day extra special this Mother’s Day. Plus, with our nationwide delivery, you can send a little floral love to moms near and far!

Not able to surprise mom with a fresh flower delivery? You can also run to your local grocery store, grab two or three different varieties of fresh flowers, some craft paper, twine or ribbon, and get to designing a flower bouquet yourself. Need flower designing tips? Our founder and CEO shares her favorite tips to turn grocery store flowers into a highly designed bouquet, here. Thank us later.

Ultimately, planning something (big or small) to celebrate the mom you love most is what matters. As Mother's Day approaches, take the time to celebrate the special women in your life who have shaped you into the person you are today. Whether it's your mom, grandma, aunt, or other mother figure, show them how much they mean to you with a thoughtful celebration filled with love, laughter, and maybe even a few floral surprises from Farmgirl Flowers for Mother’s Day. Cheers to all the amazing moms out there - you deserve to be celebrated every day!
