A brief history of Mother's Day

Mother's Day as Americans know it technically dates back to 1908. Anna Jarvis organized a formal celebration at her church in Grafton, West Virginia, to honor her recently deceased mother. As it turns out, lots of people were excited to celebrate their moms! The holiday caught on, and soon Americans across the nation were celebrating the day. In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson recognized the event as a national holiday.

Why flowers?

For centuries, motherhood has been synonymous with springtime and plants, as the two are representative of life and fertility. Flowers also emanate beauty and purity, attributes many of us associate with our own moms. Most importantly, we give our moms flowers on Mother's Day because, well, they love them! Who could resist the scents and colors of fresh flowers?
