Although Mother’s Day only became an official U.S holiday in 1914, the celebrations of motherhood can be traced all the way back to the ancient times. In more recent centuries, we’ve seen Mother’s Day observed more religiously, with traditions centered around the church on what was known as “Mothering Sunday.” Over time, these traditions have shifted more secular to what we are familiar with today. As we continue to celebrate our mothers with flowers, cards and other tokens of appreciation, here are some fun floral facts about Mother’s Day you and your mom can read up on this upcoming holiday.
Make this Mother’s Day extra special by getting Mom in touch with her creative side.

From DIY kits to artistic projects, these crafty gifts will inspire her imagination and have her feeling relaxed and adored.

There may still be a few weeks left before Mother’s Day arrives, but it’s never too early to start planning what you’ll say in your Mother’s Day card! In addition to letting mom know how much we love and appreciate her, one of our favorite things to do is bring out the Hallmark in us and insert a quote or two! Check out a few of our favorites below:
