Being a mom is hard work. A parent’s duties include everything from caring for their children, cooking for them, cleaning up after them, acting as a chauffeur and so many others. While that on it’s own is a full-time job, many moms also work full-time as well.
We think that deserves a lot of credit. Balancing parenting duties and professional responsibilities can be exhausting. As a result, be sure to say thank you to the working moms in your life. This goes for whether it is your mom, your wife, or even just a friend or coworker.
But in addition to saying thank you, why not say thank you with flowers? Let’s face it, no mom will say no to a perfect flower bouquet and it can be a great way to show you care. Flowers can also help invigorate a home and add some beautiful color and scents throughout the space.
However, with there being hundreds of thousands of different flowering plants, choosing the right ones to show your thanks can be difficult. In an effort to help, this article is going to go over a couple of beautiful flowers that are perfect for saying thank you to the working moms around you.
Roses are one of the most common flowers to be given as gifts for how elegant and beautiful they look. While they are often gifted as a sign of love and romance, this isn’t always the case. The color of the rose being given can often have an impact on the meaning behind.
While a red rose will often signify true love, other colors of roses are perfectly acceptable to give to friends or coworkers. They come in pink, yellow, white and a couple of other colors, so you have a lot of potential options to choose from. You can even mix and match some of these colors if you so choose. These other colors signify things like appreciation, gratitude and friendship.
Of course, if the working mom you are looking to thank and show appreciation for is your wife or girlfriend, then red roses can work perfectly fine. But in other cases, going with other colors is a good way to ensure the message you are trying to send is received correctly.
Few flowers signify thanks and appreciation more than hydrangeas. Originally discovered in Japan, these flowers come in several different beautiful colors and are very versatile in how they can be arranged or shown off. They have great calming tendencies due to their colors and shades, as well.
They are incredible for showing your care and appreciation for the hard work that others have put in. Hydrangeas, historically, were also flowers given to apologize or show gratitude to others who helped you through difficult times.
These flowers also dry very well, so can be used in arrangements or as decor for a long time, even after they have died. In addition to displaying the dried flowers in arrangements, you can also create some fun DIY projects with them. This can include hanging them up on a wall in a frame or glass case, or even creating some dried flower soap.
Few flowers are as beautiful or luxurious as orchids are. They work well on a desk, on a mantle, as a centerpiece or nearly anywhere else in a home. They are incredibly eye-catching, and are sure to remind your recipient just how thankful you are for them every time they see it.
These flowers can also last incredibly long if cared for, so it can be a gift that keeps on giving and showing appreciation. Orchids can be displayed as a single flower, or in a unique arrangement of a variety of them.
