Much of my love for flowers came from my mom. She was the flower gardener at our house. Every year she planned the flower beds, got tulip bulbs into the ground in fall, and was always on top of keeping things weeded and tidy and beautiful. As I grew older, I started helping out with the design and upkeep of her amazing flower beds. I loved working out in the yard with her!
As you can probably guess, those memories make Mother’s Day floral arrangements very near and dear to my heart. My mom lives in a different state, though, and I’m unable to create something myself that can be delivered to her. I’ve ordered bouquets from florists in her area, which is still wonderful, but I’ve always wanted to make something with my own hands that had that extra special, personalized touch from her daughter.
So, in the spirit of Mother’s Day, and knowing that you may also be physically cut-off from those you love right now, I decided to make that arrangement for my mom anyway. I've shared the video below so that you can watch my process and see the final result.
Love you, Mom!
