Beth & Jodi chimed in, keep reading for some fun Mother’s Day inspiration!
As far as flower selection, novelty carnations can make a striking statement for Mother’s Day. The antique tones such as Antigua make for a unique offering and still allow for lots of room to make a more personalized design. Container choices are also a big sell for Mom’s day. Something that evokes emotion and can double as a keepsake is a great idea Try offering to your customers the option of taking something like gardening boots and tools and working them into a special design. Really it’s about letting flowers and design express the sentiment behind the flowers. Flowers have a way of saying what words cannot.
Succulents/echeveria in terrariums and in cloches are huge for us. Costume jewelry as an add on sale, incorporated into ribbon or wire on a vase is nice as well!
