Flowers have always been a symbol of beauty. Each flower symbolises a particular message or emotion. Its meaning can change depending on its colour, composition or number.
Giving flowers is a universal language to express a positive emotion towards someone. They are given on many occasions such as a birth, a birthday, an invitation, a wedding, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Grandma’s Day, Mother’s Day or just as a simple way to show one cares.
Many flowers are well suited to this celebration. However, we encourage you to pay particular attention to your choice of flowers and their environmental impact. For example, the rose is produced mainly in Kenya, Ethiopia, Colombia and Ecuador. This flower, although extremely popular, has negative environmental impact due to its bad carbon footprint and high need for water and heat for its production.
The rose currently represents 62% of the flowers sold in a florist’s shop, but Monsieur Fleur has chosen to favour seasonal flowers over the rose, with a target of 30% rose sales.
Which alternative to choose? For Mother’s Day, the queen of seasonal flowers is the peony. With its varied colours and fragrance, this flower celebrates feminine beauty and sincerity. It also symbolises protection. Qualities that can be associated with the mother. Moreover, it blooms from April to June.
The lily is also an excellent alternative to the rose. It is a chic and elegant flower with white petals. In addition, this flower symbolises friendliness. Giving a bouquet of lilies is a way of telling your mother that she is the pillar of the family.
And why not give a bouquet of dried flowers? This trendy option will continue to beautify her home long after Mother’s Day has passed. Choose dried flowers with no additives for a beautiful, natural and eco-friendly gift.
Another great option is to give a potted plant. You will have plenty of choice in seasonal flowering plants such as Hydrangea, Turmeric, Bougainvillea, Fuchsia, Dipladenia, Orchids and Roses. This beautiful alternative to a bouquet is a gift that your mother can enjoy for a long time, while thinking of you.
