Women love to get flowers at work. Not only will you be the hero to her, but to her co-workers as well. She will be just as proud of the floral arrangement as the thought of you surprising her at work. Send flowers to arrive the Wednesday, Thursday or Friday before Mother’s Day. Mom will enjoy her flowers at work and then bring them home to enjoy over the weekend.
If your Mom does not work outside the home, surprise her by sending flowers to her at home on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday before Mother’s Day.

Order Flowers from a Local Florist
Make sure you know where the flowers are coming from. There is a common assumption that flowers ordered online will arrive arranged in a vase. While many Internet companies put their orders though a local professional florist, some offer product "direct from the grower" and the flowers are boxed and must be processed (cut stems) and designed by the recipient.
If your expectation is give a gift of flowers that are professional designed and delivered to your Mom’s door or office, make sure you are ordering directly from a local florist, or from a website that puts the orders through a professional florist.
