Mother’s Day can be a complicated holiday if you’re unsure of what to get your mother or a mom in your life. You want to say thank you but sometimes a gift feels like it falls flat at what you want to say. I find that the theme of Mother’s Day is truly about gratitude for a mom in your life. I find this holiday to be a bit of a conundrum now that I am a mom because at once I want to be celebrated as a mom AND I want to celebrate my own mother. I have a found a solution for this conundrum with one simple gift idea that absolutely everyone loves: A beautiful bouquet of flowers. Better yet — a beautiful bouquet of flowers with a really pretty vase. And not only will the recipient love this gorgeous bundle of florals at her day, but a bouquet of flowers makes you as the sender seem like a really thoughtful and pulled together person who has all of their ducks in a row. Do you have your life together? Who’s to say? But a bouquet from Urban Stems says “I love you, mom and you did a good job of raising me because I am an adult who picked out this gorgeous bouquet and got it to you on time.” Bonus points if you leave a sweet message in the card (even an “I love you, momma” would tug your mom’s heartstrings.)
I partnered with Urban Stems to find my favorite fashion florals for Mother’s Day! Scroll below for more of my favorites + a 15% off code just for you!
What is it about flowers that just makes your whole day? I’m telling you right now — the way to my heart is pasta and a bouquet of flowers. I’m not even particular, just a beautiful bouquet of flowers (well, since you asked hydrangeas or peonies would be best) and my whole day is made. This is a secret I’ve told Bryan multiple times. He should use this to his advantage more. So when Urban Stems asked if I wanted to try a few bouquets out for Mother’s Day I was thrilled! If you aren’t familiar, it’s okay! Urban Stems was new to me, too — they are a modern flower delivery service with beautiful modern day bouquets that honestly look like they are straight from the farm to your table. But with a really talented florist behind them with really good tastes in vases. (They also have amazing collaborations with fashion companies like Vogue and J.Crew!)
Have you ever received a bouquet in the mail for anything? My mother in law actually does this gesture very well. She’s the queen of sending bouquets and I love when I get a bouquet of flowers in the mail. One thing that I really loved about delivery from Urban Stems is that the vase is beautiful as well as the florals; it feels like a win-win. I love this option because it’s a gift that keeps on giving; I get to have a beautiful bouquet of flowers in my house for a bit and then I get to keep the pretty vase in rotation for when I pick up some flowers from time to time. My favorite bouquet from Urban Stems is The Ella bouquet because the flowers are gorgeous but kind of moody with a vintage feel of the vase. (Did I just describe myself?) Since I’m partnering with Urban Stems, I was able to receive a few bouquets in order to show you guys the quality of these bouquets. I picked out my favorites from the site and along with the fabulous Ella, I also received The Wanderlust, a classic bouquet in a simple glass vase that is the perfect size for an apartment or desk!
