        Surprise Mom

        Mother's Day flowers and plantsWomen 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.

        Having flowers delivered early gives Mom a head start sharing pictures on Facebook and making you look like a super hero to her friends.

        Order Mother’s Day Flowers Early

        Mother's Day flowersThe earlier you place your order with your florist, the more options you have and more likely you will get your particular flower and/or color request.

        Celebrate all Moms

        Show your admiration and love to all the mothers in your life — your mom, wife, mother-in-law, other relatives and friends — this Mother’s Day.

        Order Flowers from a Local Florist

        Local Florists and Flower ShopsMake 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.

        Florists have always known that flowers make people happy, and now scientific research proves flower power. Aboutflowers.com highlights university research proving the emotional and behavioral benefits of flowers and plants. Rutgers research shows that the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed. Another Rutgers study demonstrates that flowers ease depression, inspire social networking and refresh memory as we age. A Harvard study reveals that people feel more compassionate toward others, have less worry and anxiety, and feel less depressed when fresh cut flowers are present in the home. And a Texas A&M study demonstrates that workers' idea generation, creative performance and problem-solving skills improve substantially in workplace environments that include flowers and plants.
