It’s May here in California, which means the warm weather is here and ramping up to become even hotter as we move into the summer months. But before you get ahead of yourself, remember that there’s a super special occasion that’s nearly upon us: Mother’s Day. If you’re stumped trying to figure out how to surprise the special mother in your life, consider working with us here at Swenson & Silacci Flowers in Salinas, California to put together a custom floral arrangement. We can cate to your mom’s tastes no matter what they are, from eclectic and boho to classic and traditional. Our team has worked for many decades doing precisely, so no doubt we can help you create the memories that will endure for years to come.
The Healthy Snack Mom
Most moms are responsible for their family’s meal and snack planning, which in turn ensures that everyone is well-fed and cared for. The healthy snack mom takes this responsibility to the next level, however, making sure that fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grain bars, purified water, and more are never more than an arm’s length away. If that sounds like your mom, then you likely want to make her feel as special on Mother’s Day that she makes loved ones feel every day. We suggest gifting her with a tasteful bouquet of peonies, which have been prized for centuries for their nourishing qualities.
The “Always-On-The-Go” Mom
There’s no question that the vast majority of moms are constantly on the go, taking care not only of their own obligations and appointments, but also everyone else’s in the family. This is on top of everything she already has to do at work, meaning that time is always of the essence. To that end, do your always-on-the-go mom a favor this Mother’s Day and gift her a carefully-curated bouquet of colorful anemones, which are also called wind flowers. It’s a sweet way to show you appreciate your mom’s ability to get from point A to point B as quickly as the wind.
The Trendy Mom
Many of us have a hard time keeping up with what’s trending on social media, thanks to the endless amount of material on Insta and TikTok, but not the trendy mom. She has her finger on the pulse of every hairstyle, shoe selection, and fashionable accessory before everyone else, making her style inspo for everyone else. This Mother’s Day, then, get in front of the trends and surprise your trendy mom with a custom bouquet of fashionable flowers. Our pick this year is protea, which never fail to steal the spotlight. Level up by choosing magenta blooms, which match with Pantone’s pick of the 2023 color of the year.
The “Say Cheese” Mom
While all of us can take a photo with our phones with relatively good results, the “say cheese” mom brings it to the next level, thanks to her sheer creative talent. Whether she’s capturing snaps of the school play or posing everyone for a staged family portrait, she’s a master at documenting the moments that matter the most. So why not say thank you for that discerning artistic skill with a lavish bouquet of flowers on Mother’s Day? It’s a surefire way to show the “say cheese” mom that what she brings to the table has real merit. Step up your game by opting for an arrangement that puts roses front and center; they are the most photographed flower of all time.
The Pet Mom
There are plenty of reasons to bring a cat or dog home: They keep you company and help you beat back loneliness, they’re soft and cuddly, and they’re scientifically proven to be good for your health. No wonder the number of pet parents out there has been on the rise in recent years. To that end, are you looking to put a smile on the face of the outstanding pet mom you know? Consider ordering her a custom floral arrangement this Mother’s Day, which will honor her commitment to her kitty or pupper. Oh, and if you’re concerned about toxic plants, fear not: Gerbera daisies are totally safe, and pop in a large selection of hues.
Whether your mom is a purveyor of health snacks, always on the go, or new to motherhood altogether, one thing is for sure: She’ll be delighted by a custom bouquet of flowers this Mother’s Day. The pros here at Swenson & Silacci Flowers in Salinas, California are standing by, ready to help you create the arrangement of her dreams.
