Mother’s Day Flowers April 28, 2011

Posted by nrhatch in Gratitude, Sustainable Living.

Mother’s Day is right around the corner . . . which means florists will be doing a booming business!

If you want to shift some of your purchasing power to GREEN sources, consider ordering flowers for your mom from Organic Bouquet.

If you order from the Flowers For Good selections, your mom will get a sweet eco-friendly bouquet . . . and Organic Bouquet will donate 5% of your purchase price to one of their non-profit partners.

The non-profit partners include: Nature Conservancy, HSUS, Green America, Global Fund for Women, Audubon, Earth Share, In Defense of Animals, and many more.

Talk about a Win~Win!

If your mom’s not a fan of flowers, other options from Organic Bouquet include: Organic Tea Baskets, Spa Goodies, and Chocolate!

LOVE all those beautiful bouquets!

Me too!

A bit more “light-hearted” than the last post. 😎

How altogether lovely, Nancy! I’m not sure that these options would work for SA, but you’ve shared some great ideas anyway. Thank you!

I love the idea of honoring Mother Earth along with mom. 😀

That’s a great idea! But I’ll probably be making my mom and stepmother gifts like I always do!

Homemade gifts from the heart are ALWAYS the best!

Or cards printed on recycled paper for mothers, grandmothers, godmothers, aunts, stepmothers, etc. who are far away.

Great idea, Maggie.

I often recycle cards to make one-of-a-kind designs featuring artwork, photos, handwritten poems, etc. Much more FUN than shopping at the Hallmark Store. 😀

That’s a neat idea. I’m not a flower person (I get depressed when the flowers die – I know that’s strange) but those other baskets looked great!

I already know my older son is making me ‘coupons’ for him to do stuff around the house (he can’t keep a secret.) He told me he doesn’t think I’ll use them. He’d better think again, and be careful about what he puts on those coupons 😉

I do like getting flowers a few times a year, but don’t like watching them die.

Good for you! Redeem those coupons! Sure, “it’s the thought that counts” . . . but sometimes “you have to put your [muscle] where your mouth is.” 😉

Great idea. I prefer to give and receive live flowering plants that can be planted in our yard for further enjoyment. Never enough flowers to look at.

nrhatch - April 29, 2011

I agree. It’s lovely when we receive flowers that can be transplanted outside ~ tulips, daffodils, miniature roses. 😀
