Billy Heroman’s Mother’s Day Stories

Mother's Day storiesThere are 85 million moms in the United States, but there are none as unique as yours. Although we all love our moms, each mother has influenced us in her own special way. That is what we celebrate this May 14 – the Mother’s Day stories that are unique to each family.

For all your special Moms and the stories they inspire, Billy Heroman’s Flowers has the floral designs and gifts that will make their day amazing. Here is a story shared by our team member Janet, who shares why motherhood has been so important to her. Mother's Day stories

“When I became a mom 31 years ago, I thought my greatest dream had been realized. My daughter was hope, joy, blessings, love, and laughter all wrapped up in one precious bundle. She taught me how much my mother loved & cared for me – in fact, the lessons my mother taught me in my youth now had meaning. I didn’t think love could be bigger than what I felt for my daughter – until this year when she gave birth to the two most perfect twin boys. As a retired teacher, working part-time at Billy Heroman’s Flowers, my schedule allows me to be home with Noah and Finn several days per week. The boys gave me a T-shirt that says, ‘A grandmommy is a mom with lots of frosting.’ I say, ‘Grandchildren are children with lots of frosting!’  I love being a mom and a grandmommy!” Janet Evans

Celebrating Mother’s Day 2016

mother's dayMay the 8th is a day when children everywhere – young and old – get the chance to show their moms the appreciation that she so deserves! Over 100 years ago, Anna Jarvis championed efforts to bring recognition as to the importance of mothers; she was acting, primarily, to honor her own mother’s dream of such a day. Although there are many precursors to the holiday, it wasn’t until 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson made it official. Mother’s Day is celebrated annually on the 2nd Sunday of May; and the holiday has been mirrored around the world, observed on the same day in Australia, England, India, Canada, and Mexico.

mother's dayOf course, there are many ways we can tell mom we love her – Americans will spend billions on cards, restaurants, jewelry and spa days, not to mention flowers. From the simplicity of a few pink roses to the extravagance of a cut flower bouquet, flowers carry with them inherent meaning that tells the story of your mom’s personality. Orchids represent grace and beauty; mums signify loyalty and pink roses express deep gratitude. What flowers would you like to include in your arrangement?

mother's dayHere’s a tip we love – if you research the meaning of flowers and find some that perfectly represent how you feel about your mom, give us a call. We’ll work with you to design a unique floral bouquet created just for your mother. When you deliver the flowers, include a handwritten card that explains why you selected each flower for her. The note will last long after the holiday is over, and is sure to become something she cherishes.

They gave us a peek into the lives of families we fell in love with and grew with each week. But whoever they were, none could compare to our real life moms.

What to Give on Mother’s Day

May 11, 2014 isn’t just another Sunday on the 2014 calendar – it’s Mother’s Day. You know, the annual day when you pamper all the moms in your life with all sorts of goodies to let them know how appreciated they are?

But Mother’s Day can be challenging for many people. What do you buy her? How much of it do you get? What’s a good gift and what’s a poor gift? We realize that many of you – cough, cough, all you fellas out there – might have some struggles when it comes to buying the right gift for the mom and grandmothers in your life, so we’ve compiled a quick-hit gift-giving guide. Yes, there’s the likes of jewelry, spa days and candy, but when it comes to Mother’s Day gift giving, the one constant is flowers – here’s a look at flower gift giving tips and suggestions:

  • Home delivery: It’s always nice to present mom with flowers on Mother’s Day, but for extra bonus points, consider having them delivered to mom’s house so that she’s caught somewhat off-guard. Include a nice card to really show mom how you really feel about her.
  • Know the “language of flowers”: Believe it or not, the flowers you give speak their own language, which is why it’s important to gift accordingly. For instance, carnations, the most traditional Mother’s Day flower, all convey different things based on their color. Pink carnations represent love, red signifies admiration and white carnations are given or worn in memory of a mother who is no longer around. While carnations are the most popular Mother’s Day flower, here’s some others and what they signify:
    • Roses: White roses demonstrate the likes of purity and reverence, yellow signify devotion and mature roses signify gratitude.
    • Sunflowers portray admiration and respect.
    • Daisies portray joy and cheer.
    • Tulips send a message of love.
    • A violet is a good way to send your mother a reminder of her devotion.
  • Take it from the pros: Call your local florist well in advance of Mother’s Day so you can ensure that you spend some time with them to get the arrangement that matches your requirements and your budget. And trust the expert florists – if they make a recommendation based off the information you’ve given them, it’s best to go with it, especially for the florally challenged.
