Every year for Mother’s Day, my mom always asks for a letter. It used to make me roll my eyes, Can’t I get you a new purse or something!? But now I totally get it. She has a stack that she’s collected from each of us over the year. And what a treasured collection that must be. Even still, I always love to throw in a little something extra, too.
When I was little, we used to sing this little song:
I often go walking in meadows of clover,
And I gather armfuls of blossoms of blue.
I gather the blossoms the whole meadow over;
Dear mother, all flowers remind me of you.
Chris and I each picked flowers from our favorite floral shop, The Bouqs Company, that reminded us of our moms. Since we live close, we had them delivered to our house, so we could hand-deliver them ourselves, but you can also ship them directly to anyone you’re thinking of. This was our 7th time ordering flowers from Bouqs.com and we’re continually impressed by their freshness. The flowers are shipped directly to your door from the farms – no waiting in warehouses until they’re ordered, so always good quality and beautiful. They’re cut the day you order and shipped right away–We got ours the very next day!
I picked these light pink Ballerina tulips. I put them in a simple glass vase I picked up at Ikea for a few dollars. Chris chose Lagoon, a vibrant spring mix of florals that fit well in this $5 white faceted vase from Target.
Sunday, we visited both our moms to deliver their flowers in person–it was so fun! Where do you get your looks? I get my height (and nose!) from my dad, but my coloring from my mom.
Chris (the youngest of 8 kids!) is 100% his mom. I love seeing their bond.
Before we played flower delivery, I jotted down a quick note for my mom to jog her memory of that song I used to sing 20+ years ago.
But, I thought it would be fun to design a free printable for all of you to pair with your Mother’s day florals–to keep or give, (or both!) with the same sentiment.
It’s an 8×10 print (frame found here), but if you’d like to print it on normal copy paper (like I did), you can always trim it down to size to fit in a standard 8×10 frame. Download and print the pdf below, or pin the above image to save for later!
Also! Bouqs.com is offering our readers 20% off your order THIS WEEK (there’s always free shipping) with the code MDAY20. Make sure you tag us in your printable + Bouqs photos–We’d love to see!
