How To: Mother’s Day Flower Arrangements | Eric Buterbaugh

Mother’s Day is such an amazing time to honor one of the most important people in your life… And “of course” I think that beautiful flower arrangements are the best way to make your mother feel special…

When you’re ordering from a local florist, my suggestion would be to order early and specify happy flowers. What do I mean by this? Well since it’s springtime, so many flowers are amazing this time of year. Peonies, Ranunculus, Roses are always good. For me though… the note that goes with your beautiful arrangements is equally as important! Make it amazing and say something truly from the heart.

If flowers from a local florist are out of your budget, don’t worry! Get your creative spirit in gear and put together some flowers yourself. You could pick them from your garden and arrange them in jam jars (see above photo) or you could go to the local flower market and get some fresh stems. Most grocery stores carry flowers now, but be careful because they sometimes aren’t as fresh. But if you’re buying at a grocery store try to get flowers that are not so open because they’ll last longer!

Happy arranging!
