We all know that Mother’s Day is in the spring. But were you aware that there is also a special day set aside for a very special subset of moms? October 25th is Mother-In-Law Day! These special ladies are sometimes closer than blood, and sometimes the relationship can be complicated – but overall, without her, you wouldn’t be married to your spouse! And that alone is reason to celebrate her.
Florists across the country were recently asked which flowers are popular for moms and mother-in-laws. You may know that pink is a traditional color to give to mom, signifying gratitude and love. But for those not so bound by traditional rules, other floral arrangements are gaining in popularity. Adding ivory and cream tones to pink gives a vintage and elegant air; while hot pink and deep berry-hued flowers are a vibrant twist to classic pink. Oranges and purples are also gaining ground as bold choices for a vivacious in-law!
For a long lasting reminder of how special she is, how about sending your mother-in-law a flowering plant? Violets traditionally express faithfulness and devotion, while a single orchid will convey singular love, refinement and elegance. Dish gardens and floral arrangements in baskets are popular choices that will grace and home or office with ongoing beauty. If you are surprising her at work, consider sending the arrangement a few days before the weekend, so she has the choice to bring the flowers home if she chooses.
So go ahead – tell your mother-in-law that you love her, appreciate her and are glad you are a part of the family! Central Square Florist of Cambridge has all the flowers, bouquets, arrangements and gifts you need to make sure that you deliver a smile this Mother-In-Law Day!
