Choose Amaranté’s infinity roses to celebrate Mother's Day
Every year on Mother's Day, we honour motherhood and celebrate all mothers. During this annual tradition we especially acknowledge our mothers’ role in our lives and show them love, support, and gratitude.
Over the centuries, Mother's Day has become a cultural phenomenon, and most countries celebrate this holiday on different days. This year, Mother's Day falls on March 14th in the United Kingdom, three weeks before Easter.
Depending on the country you live in, Mother's Day may be characterised by different customs. One thing that remains constant is the traditional bouquet of flowers on Mother's Day.
In this article, we will share with you more about the history behind this important celebration and how infinity roses are just the perfect gift to make your mother feel special on her day.
The history of Mothering Sunday
Like many other traditions and festivities, Mother's Day started as a religious practice in the UK.
During the 16th century, people in the UK used to attend a special service at their “mother church”, or the chapel they were originally baptised, on the fourth Sunday in Lent.
This unique gathering had the power to reunite entire families. It became a true family-honoured tradition because, on this day, children who worked as apprentices away from home had a day off to join their relatives and, especially, meet their mother.
On their way back home, children would pick wildflowers along the way to place them in the church or give them to their mothers. Eventually, this custom evolved into the tradition of giving flowers to mothers. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, then, that forever roses have become a popular gift on to honour mothers on this special day.
The origins of Mother's Day
Mother's Day was officially established in the US, much later in 1908 by Lady Anna Jarvis of West Virginia. She held a memorial to honour her late mother and pushed hard for an official holiday to celebrate all mothers around the world.
In 1914, after a lot of hard work and promotion, US President Woodrow Wilson finally made a proclamation establishing the second Sunday of May as the official US date for the observance of a national day to celebrate mothers.
Shortly after, the holiday became popular and started to be celebrated all over the world. However, people from the UK and Ireland unified Mother's Day, celebrating the two occurrences on the same day.
Show your love on Mother's Day with gift giving
Mother's Day usually represents a great opportunity to reunite families and organise a special gathering. Unfortunately, it may have felt quite different in 2021.
In these unusual times, we probably have reinvented ourselves and got creative to surprise our mum on this special day. You might have found yourself at a loss for ideas, but remember that Mother's Days, as any other holidays, is characterised by meaningful traditions and symbols.
In fact, traditions could become the novelty you were looking for to show your mom gratitude and appreciation. Especially in the UK, traditional Mother's Day gifts include beautiful flowers and Simnel cake.
Flowers: the most powerful gift on Mother's Day
For centuries, motherhood has been associated with life and fertility. Flowers and plants are also representative of these attributes and remind of beauty and purity, just as mothers do. Moreover, flowers have a great role in traditional UK Mothering Sunday. In fact, kids used to hand pick wildflowers to create stunning colourful bouquets for their beloved mothers.
Today we can spoil our mothers with more luxurious gifts such as perfume or jewellery. However, to keep up with the flower tradition, Amaranté creates the most luxurious preserved roses arrangements that are the perfect gift to surprise one of the most important women in our lives.
Why are Amaranté’s infinity rose arrangements perfect for Mother's Day?
