Soft colors, delicate fragrance, simple green leaves and frilly, fluffy petals, pink carnations are traditional mother’s day flowers that symbolize timeless love. The flower was believed to have grown from the ground where Mother Mary shed tears over her beloved Jesus’ death. The ‘heavenly flowers’ are often tucked behind tiger lilies, roses and other big blossoms to create a pleasant looking bouquet for recipients.

Go for a gorgeous bouquet of pink and white tulips.
