Easy Mother's Day Flower Arrangements
Vibrant blooms and fun garden gifts are the perfect way to say "Happy Mother's Day" to your very special mom.
Glass Bottle Mother's Day Vase
Surprise Mom with a thoughtful gift, as well as a new use for an old glass bottle. Clean out an old bottle (we used a narrow-necked medicine bottle) and fill with Mother's Day flowers of your choice, such as these cosmos and sweet peas.
Tray of Rosettes for Mom
Create elegant Mother's Day place markers in a snap by placing a single flower (we used roses) in a short drinking glass. Put one at each table setting or gather several onto an attractive tray and use the cluster of blooms as a darling Mother's Day centerpiece.
Glass Jar Mother's Day Vase
Place old botanical- and garden-theme postcards inside recycled glass jars for a whimsical Mother's Day gift. Put a handful of pretty pink snapdragons, or another flower on hand, into a small vase and slide the vase into the glass jar.
Ribbon-Wrapped Dessert Cup
Dress up a simple dessert cup by adhering patterned paper around it. A sweet pink ribbon finishes off the look, and short-stem white flowers add a quiet elegance.
Pamper your Mom with peonies this Mother' Day. To create the vase, decoupage a piece of lace onto a plain white watertight container. This gift lasts long after the flowers are gone.
Bowl of Mother's Day Flowers
For a brilliant bouquet this Mother's Day, group an array of peonies in a low bowl from the kitchen cupboard, and display them in Mom's room or bathroom. Look for varying shades of pink, white, and purple peonies, and stick in some greenery for contrast.
Fish Bowl Flower Arrangement for Mom
A repurposed miniature fish bowl makes a fun vessel to hold a Mother's Day flower arrangement. Wash out a glass or plastic fish bowl and fill it with water and bright blossoms, such as these cosmos.
Fruit and Flower Gift for Mom
For the mom who loves bright, cheerful colors, place yellow flowers -- in this case, double yellow tulips -- in a clear vase filled with kumquats and water.
