Mother's Day Gift Ideas: Mother's Day Flowers

Millions of flowers are sent on Mother's Day celebration. The flowers have been an emblem of mother's love for centuries. Pink, white and red flowers are common colors for Mother's Day flowers. Each color has unique meaning in Mother's Day celebration.

In 1907, Miss Anna Jarvis (the mother of Mother's Day) selected the pink carnations as the symbol for Mother's Day . She supplied white flowers at the first service conducted in Grafton, West Virginia. Pink carnations are widely accepted for the Mother's Day because of the inherent quality of sweetness, purity and endurance.

White flowers with their sweet fragrance are regarded as the flowers for those who have missed their mothers either because of death, or because of distance.

Red flowers, representing life and love, are considered the symbol of love for living mothers.
