Mothers Day Flower Ideas

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS - With mothers day right around the corner you might not know exactly what to pick for that special lady in your life. But as Matt DeBray shows us local florists are hard at work if you want to pick her a flower. Hey everybody I'm out here at Herman's Flowers where they are inside working like busy bees trying to get everything ready for mothers day I'm gonna go inside find out what they are doing and maybe learn a thing or two. Mothers Day is Sunday and while it looks quiet the ladies at Herman's Flowers are hard at work preparing for the holiday.

"Well it takes a lot of preparation we usually start two three weeks in advance. We get all the vases and supplies that we need then we order the flowers."says Hand.

Sylvia hand is a floral designer and knows exactly how complex arranging a bouquet can be.

"Well when a customer comes in sometimes they are very specific in what they want sometimes they don't know at all so they just leave it up to us. Sometimes we get orders from Teleflora and FTD and they are a recipe we call it and that's very specific flowers that we have to follow." says Hand

After learning about floral design I decided to give it a try myself. Jayde Anneu was nice enough to give me a lesson.

Alright everybody I'm here with Jayde and she's going to show me how to make a bouquet that would be perfect for anybody to give to their mother on Mothers Day. So where do we start?

"Well you have to have the perfect vase whichever you would like greens any kind you would like and any kind of color flowers. What we have here are yellow Lilly and blue delf," says Anneu.

Cool well I see that half is already made so can you show me what i would have to do to make a bouquet?

"So you get some flowers you need to cut the ends to get a fresh cut for water, they need to be in water maybe half an inch or so. And place it where ever you would like, this is an all around arrangement so you could put it on a table and it would show every flower all around. You need to not have flowers out of water for more than seven seconds so be sure when you get them home to cut them. If they are in a vase like from here at Herman's they are fine but if you get a wrapped arrangement totally cut them," adds Anneu.

So is this a finished bouquet?

"I would say so you could put a bow on it or have some accessories but for me i would just leave it and its perfect how it in," says Anneu.

Remember when it comes to flowers everyone has a mother so be sure to make it special for that special lady in your life.
