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.

Think out the box by choosing an unexpected container for a plant or flower arrangement.

  1. So many GREAT ideas Kate! Excellent assortment and all are so much better than the standard fresh arrangement (not that I don’t appreciate those mind you).

    Now, how do I tactfully forward this to my kiddos and hubby? Hmmmmm.

  2. Are those real succulents in those wreaths? Don’t they have to be in potting mix? I love the design, but am wondering how that works?

  3. So many great ideas! I still have some pressed flowers in frames from my Aunt Betty who has passed away. I also have my wedding bouquet pressed in a frame. I love the succulent wreaths! I’m thinking I’ll make one for my mom and me!
