We all know how important Mother’s Day is, but where did the holiday come from?candles.jpg

The first celebrations of Mother's Day can be traced back to the ancient Greeks, who worshiped the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele. During the 1600s in England, a special day was set apart as Mothering Day which was a day of taking small cakes and trinkets to mothers.

The first Mother's Day observance in the United States was a church service held at the request of Anna Jarvis in Grafton, West Virginia (the burial place of her mother) on May 10, 1908. Because of her mother's fondness for them, Anna wore a carnation to that first service. She went on to play an active role in encouraging the government to establish a national holiday to honor mothers everywhere. By 1911, Mother's Day was being celebrated throughout the United States, as well as in Mexico, Canada, South America, China, Japan and Africa. On May 9, 1914, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May as National Mother's Day and asked all Americans to offer their respect and love for mothers publicly.

Here are a few tips to pamper your mom:

  • Invite her to brunch or dinner at her favorite restaurant and have a flower arrangement delivered right to your table for all to see. Our creative designers can help you put together the perfect arrangement.
  • Give your mom something to relax with by wrapping a new book and having us place it into a fragrant flower bouquet with a note that reads "Today is your day to relax!" We can also incorporate some of the amazing Jazz Candles to really help set the mood.
  • Make a special tribute to your mom by sending a decorated "Mother's Day Tree." The week before Mother's Day, bring several of your favorite family photos to us at Lindskoog Florist and we can attach them to a plant or miniature tree using colorful ribbons. Prepare the photos ahead of time by pasting them onto pretty comothersday1.jpglored papers or put them in small frames.
  • This one is great for kids- Let mom know you think she is your greatest treasure with a treasure hunt! Visit Lindskoog Florist and pick out several pretty stems of flowers. We can put them in tubes for you to keep them fresh. Once the treasure hunt has started, give her clues as to where she can find each of the flowers. At the end of the hunt, have an empty vase ready with a card telling her how much she means to you. You can then arrange the flowers in the vase together to make it a special moment to share.
  • Breakfast in bed is a treat that every mom loves. Dads and kids can prepare a special morning for mom by greeting her with a homemade breakfast in bed, on a tray adorned with fresh flowers. Even if you are not sure what her favorite flowers might be, our floral designers can help you pick out something she’s sure to love.
  • Present Mom with a vase of her favorite flowers. On each stem tie a "coupon" for a chore that you promise to do.

Remember, these are just a few ideas to help you get creative with your gift for Mother’s Day and we’re here to help! We can help you by preparing a special arrangement or gift for your mother to enjoy her special day!
