Creative Plant + Flower Ideas for Mother’s Day

By Kate Riley April 28, 2021

Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away, so now is the time to start thinking about all the moms in your life! A bouquet of fresh flowers is always lovely and a no fail gift. I’ve gathered up a few different ideas to gift plants or flowers beyond an arrangement in a vase.

I was visiting a local farmer’s market over the weekend and snapped a picture of these beautiful living wreaths. I love the idea of gifting plants or flowers in a creative way, which prompted today’s roundup of ideas.

Use a grapevine wreath as a base for a succulent arrangement.



Create a centerpiece with a rectangular box and fill it with a variety of succulents, add curly willow, moss, and stones for texture.
