Flowers for Mom

I have always been a huge fan of carnations. I think they add color to any party and, when properly displayed, they look as rich as any flower. I also love history, so I was thrilled to discover carnations are considered the flower of Mother's Day. It turns out Anna Jarvis, the "mother" of Mother's Day created the U.S. observance of mom's in 1908 to honor her mother, also named Anna. Carnations were her favorite flower.

Flowers are nice for Mother's Day, but so are hugs and phone calls. As a mom, I love just being thought of so to all the mom's out there I'm grateful for you. Thanks to my mom and mom-in-law, especially, for all you do.

Happy Mother's Day!
