They work 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You may mistake them for superheroes, but we just call them mom. For this Mother’s Day VaseOff! Challenge, we’ve asked our florist contestants to create arrangements designed to celebrate and pamper the busy on-the-go mom. “Like” your favorite!

Help us reach 5,000 “Likes” by May 6th and we’ll deliver flowers to patients and their moms at four participating hospitals: Shriners Hospitals for Children – Philadelphia, Shriners Hospitals for Children – Tampa, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, and Seattle Children’s Hospital. Your “Like” will help bring a bit of bloom to moms with the toughest job of all – caring for a sick child.

It isn’t easy for mom to find time to herself, and it’s even harder for her to get a chance to relax and unwind. This inspired me to bring a piece of tranquility in the midst of her busy lifestyle. LEARN MORE

The word “mother” makes me think of Mother Nature and how all mothers are connected, although we all have our own stories.


The job of a mother requires a certain gentleness, kindness and softness of heart that no one else can imitate. Mothers give so much of their time and energy to others that by the end of the day there is nothing left to give. LEARN MORE

Mother’s Day is a time for families to be together. Starting Mother’s Day with a lovely brunch is a perfect way to say thanks and show mom how much she’s appreciated. Here are three simple tips to celebrate the special day:

Tip 1: Have Breakfast in Bed

But, many like to spend the day with grandma and close mom friends and other family as well. So, if the get-together is at your home, keep things as easy as possible, and elicit the help of your family, so you can enjoy your day, too.

Romantic Color PaletteMother’s Day is Sunday, May 8. Of course, my brother and I are sending our mom flowers. We always give her flowers for Mother’s Day, and we love how happy they make her. I can’t tell you what type of flowers we’re sending; wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise for our mom. But I can tell you some floral industry insider tips so you, too, can wow your mom with Mother’s Day flowers.

  • Surprise mom. Usually moms don’t like surprises, but they do love being surprised by flowers. Catch mom off guard by giving her flowers before Mother’s Day — on Wednesday, May 4; Thursday, May 5; or Friday, May 6. To really surprise her, send the flowers to her at work. Not only will you be the hero to her, but to her co-workers as well. Your mom can enjoy her flowers in the office and then bring them home to enjoy over the weekend. If you can’t give the flowers to your mom in person, ask your florist to deliver them. She’ll be wowed. Read More
