Ordering Mother's Day Flowers: 5 Must-Know Tips!

No Mother's Day gift is truly complete without a stunning Mother's Day bouquet. We all agree that she deserves nothing but the finest. That's why we've compiled tips to ensure your Mother's Day flower order exceeds expectations.

 

  1. What flowers to give for Mother's Day?


    As Mother's Day gets closer, you might start wondering which flowers would make your mum smile on her big day. There are tons of choices out there, making it tough to pick the perfect ones she'll love. But what about the colour?

    *Here's a tip: think about what flowers and colours your mum likes best. If you're drawing a blank, no worries! Carnations or chrysanthemums are always a safe bet—they're like the official flowers of Mother's Day.



  2. Order Your Mother’s Day Bouquet Earlier


    Although many people tend to buy flowers at the last minute or pick them up on Mother’s Day while heading to see their mum, we advise ordering your Mother's Day flowers several days in advance. This day is one of the busiest for florists, so placing your order early increases the likelihood of getting exactly what you want and having it delivered on time. While most florists, such as Hansford Flowers, offer next-day delivery for orders placed a day before Mother’s Day, it's still better to plan ahead and order early.

  3. Shop from Your Local Florist


    We all want that top-notch Mother's Day bouquet without breaking the bank, right? It's best to find a real local florist with a real address and phone number. This provides you with flexibility—you can drop by the flower shop and pick up your bouquet whenever convenient, ensuring the freshest flowers possible. Just a heads up though: watch out for those businesses posing as local florists as they will take a sizable cut out of your order and pass it along to your local florist to fill at a lower price.


  4. Write a Heartfelt Message on a Card


    Even though the flowers will undoubtedly bring joy to your mom, a heartfelt or funny message on a card can't be overlooked—it's what will truly make her day. If you're struggling to find the right words, fret not! Take a peek at our list of Mother's Day messages for some inspiration. And why stop there? We also suggest adding some chocolates or a bottle of champagne to your Mother's Day bouquet and card for an extra special treat.


  5. Double Check the Details Required


    Ensure smooth delivery by providing your florist with accurate details: your mum’s name, address, and phone number. If delivering to an office or hospital, additional info like department, work hours, floor, or room number may be necessary. Don't forget to write your heartfelt message on the card.

    If your mum lives in a large apartment building, check if she will be home to receive the flowers. Otherwise, it might end up at reception. This guarantees our delivery team can smoothly drop off your Mother’s Day surprise.
