Mother’s Day Stories from The Flower Bucket Team

Mother's Day stories

There really is no one like a Mom! On Mother’s Day, many people will call us to send flowers to their moms – and all of us at The Flower Bucket love being able to help you to express your sentiments.

We thought that this year, we would also take the opportunity to share a little bit about OUR families – because just like you, we love our mothers, and we love being mothers! These Mother’s Day stories reflect our families, and we hope that on May 14, you’ll allow us to help you to write another page in your story.

Mother's Day stories
“I am blessed to have such amazing moms, and grandmothers in my life! My mom is the most loving, creative,
and hardworking woman that I know. She’s always in my corner. She gives great advice and she’s always a blast. We love to shop together, craft together, and we’ve enjoyed learning how to ski together over the past couple years.

I am also blessed to have a caring, loving and silly mother-in-law. She’s someone I can chat with after work over some drinks, float the river with and go to the dog park. Both of these ladies are such good role models for me – and I can’t wait to become a mom at some point to share their love and advice with my own kids!”

“Being a mom is the greatest gift ever – the two best gifts that I have! I can spend all my time with my sons and I love that they’re involved in sports, dancing, and cooking. As a single mom, I love taking care of them and that they take care of me too. They think of me often and bring me little gifts and notes.”

Did You Know? The most common flowers given to moms on Mother’s Day are pink carnations and pink roses. Both represent deep gratitude and affection, making them the perfect choice. Other popular selections on Mother’s Day include orchids, lilies, and gerbera daisies.


“I’m proud that I’ve been able to teach my kids how to swim, how to ride bikes and that they can have that
memory of me when they get older. I love crafting, cooking, being outside with my kids. All my weekends and days off are for them! We love to go on adventures together and help them to face their fears. Thanks to my mom, I am who I am today. She’s been such a hardworking example for me and I can pass that along to my kids. I need to mention my mother in law as well – she’s the most patient woman ever, she’s loving, and an amazing source for advice and tips! ”

We’d love to work with you to create a beautiful floral design that will touch your mom’s heart – so just give us a call! After all, we understand how special she is to you, because our Moms and kids are just as special to us!
