Making Mom's Bouquet Special

Making Moms Bouquet SpecialThe simple fact that they are so pleasing to the senses is what makes flowers such a popular gift for Mother’s Day. There is nothing more pleasing than a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

For an eco-friendly mom, there is no other option in terms of gifts that can be greener. Even the woman who has everything can’t be disappointed by a carefully thought out bouquet.

Executive editorial director of decorating for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Kevin Sharkey says, “A beautiful bouquet of fresh, fragrant flowers is a timeless Mother’s Day gesture. I like to make flowers a lasting keepsake by arranging them in unique, heirloom inspired vessels. All our Martha Stewart floral bouquets, gourmet gift tins and plants are thoughtfully designed and presented in vessels that can be cherished by moms long after the holiday.”

But if you do not have the money, spare some time and design a bouquet of your own. Cut your flowers at sunrise or sunset, place them in cool water to let them drink. The stems need to be cut at angle, even if you have bought the flowers from a store. Hold the stems of the flowers straight and place them in a vase with water and cut-flower food. The size of the flowers should reflect your mood, your mother’s style or perhaps a room in the house that she likes.
