What flowers should you send...

For the bold and beautiful Mum: The Freyja

Perfect for mums who get a little loud at family functions, who never leave the house without a red hot lippie or a colourful dress, who give the biggest hugs and aren't afraid to shower you with kisses. 

The Freyja is a bright and vibrant bouquet that instantly catches anyone’s attention. With a charming combination of bold reds, pink-orange hues, and pastel yellows reminiscent of a fiery autumnal sunset, this bouquet is an absolute stunner that no doubt reflects Mum’s style and personality. She’s bound to love it if you get it delivered to her this Mother’s Day!

For the simple yet stylish mum: Mixed Tulips

This one’s for the mums who give selflessly and never want anything in return, always caring for others. They're classy and uncomplicated, always making a fuss over others but never over themselves.

Nothing like a gorgeous bunch of Mixed Tulips to add a bit of colour to her day this Mother’s Day! Here at Floraly, we send our tulips while they are still in bud, so they are as fresh as possible and Mum can admire their petals slowly opening up at home. Ever so elegant with their long, clean stems and in a variety of solid colours, tulips are sleek and chic — just like Mum.

For the gentle, warm-hearted Mum: The Paris

Does Mum always give you a nice, big hug every time she sees you, beaming with joy? Is she always so patient in listening to your worries, and gives solid advice whenever you need it?

The pastel hues of The Paris will definitely suit her — impress and delight this Mother’s Day with splashes of roses, large disbud chrysanthemums, veronicas, carnations, and adorable hypericum berries. Get it delivered right to her doorstep so you can show her your heartfelt appreciation. 

Did you know that carnations are the official flowers for Mother's Day? According to Ms. Anne Jarvis — founder of Mother's Day in the United States — the traditional colour to gift Mum is the white carnation, as it represents all the virtues of motherhood, but pink carnations symbolise life.

Chrysanthemums are also great flowers for Mother's Day, because they've got "mum" in their name!

For the strong, no-nonsense Mum: Seasonal Natives

You know her — she never complains and never quits, even when life gets tough. Sound familiar? If your mum's just like that, then she deserves a bunch of glorious Seasonal Natives this Mother’s Day.

From proteas to banksias, wax flowers and conebushes, natives are a hardy bunch that last two to three times longer than traditional bouquets — that’s why they're perfect for mum!

They make for great decor pieces when dried too, so why not invest in a Mother’s Day gift that lasts for years instead of weeks? For tips on how to dry flowers, you can read our blog.

For the elegant and sophisticated Mum: The Mel

Maybe mum or grandma has a couch that you're not actually allowed to sit on. She might prefer you to take your shoes off in the house, and there's likely not a speck of dust in sight. She has an understated and timeless beauty, a sense of poise and intelligence. 

If any of this sounds familiar, then the perfect gift to be delivered to her this Mother’s Day is The Mel. This is a contemporary arrangement that exudes effortless elegance — just like her.

A calming sight to behold with large oriental lilies, disbud chrysanthemums, wax flowers, pixie sims and alstroemerias, this pure white bouquet is definitely a classic favourite. Mum can use it as a statement decor centrepiece anywhere in the home!

Mum can continue enjoying this dried flower bouquet long after Mother’s Day is over. Here’s our guide on how to care for dried flowerswhich you can share with Mum, so she can ensure your thoughtful gift continues looking pristine for as long as possible.
