The second Sunday of May celebrates some of the most important and influential women in the world. Mother's Day is a time to honor the women that have sacrificed their own desires and comfort to pour love into their children. Mothers shape future generations and therefore leave a big mark on society. What a better way to show your love and appreciation than by giving her a beautiful flower arrangement.
Flowers are lovely to look at as well as adding a light scent to whatever room they are displayed in. While you can order flowers from an internet florist or pick them up from the grocery store, designing your own bouquet is a special handmade gift that will bring your mom joy. With all she has done, she certainly deserves it.
With a variety of blooms to choose from, you can go with any color palette you think mom will love. If her favorite flower is not currently in season, you can always use imitation flowers. This allows your mom to enjoy her gift all year long! Another advantage of DIYing your Mother's Day bouquet is that you can get creative with the vessel in which you arrange the flowers.
Whether you order a bouquet online or decide to do it yourself, these 11 Mother's Day flower arrangement ideas should inspire you to find the perfect gift for that very special lady.
1. Bucket Bouquet
These pretty spring blossoms are cleverly displayed in a bucket. This cute farmhouse design is easily customizable by choosing a bucket in your mom's favorite color. You could go even more rustic by employing the use of a galvanized bucket. Regardless of what type you use, make sure you match the size of the flowers to the size of the bucket, so the design remains physically balanced. You do not want her bouquet to tip over!
These tall galvanized buckets would work very well to display your Mother's Day bouquet. Click here to view this product on Amazon.
2. Colorfully Compact Arrangement
The bouquet size doesn't matter, as long as it makes a statement like this arrangement. The variety of colors and differing heights of these flowers gives this compact design a lot of character. The short, square vase also lends personality to this composition. When designing your Mother's day flower arrangement think about the placement of each blossom to draw your eye in a pleasing way.
3. Feminine Pastel Pink Design
Keeping your flowers in a similar color family like this composition is very appealing. Even the light-colored greenery used compliments the white and pale pink flowers. The use of tissue paper is smart as it frames the arrangement and gives it a clean, symmetrical appearance. If you would like to frame your bouquet in a similar fashion, wrap floral wire around both the tissue paper and the flower stems to keep everything in place.
This precut floral wire saves you the need for any wire cutters. It comes in a pack of 100, so there is plenty for any floral project you may have. Click here to check out this product on Amazon.

An easy way to recreate this look is by using artificial topiary trees and tuck in your desired imitation blooms. Using complementary colors like yellow and purple allow variety without being overwhelming.

5. Beautiful Bouquet of Roses
Roses don't have to mean romance, as this display clearly demonstrates. Using the same type of flower in a variety of colors is a great way to create a stunning arrangement for Mother's Day. The placement of the roses and greenery in this bouquet is very symmetrical, which gives it a good visual balance. Tying a ribbon in the same color as the flowers around the vase adds a festive touch.
6. Purple Teacup Arrangement
Using a teacup instead of a vase is a charming way to present flowers this Mother's Day. This is the kind of gift that keeps on giving, as your mom can reuse the cup once the flowers die. You will have to pay attention to the size of your bouquet so that the flowers don't overwhelm the dainty teacup. Or you could go big by trading out the cup for a teapot. Either way, she is sure to be pleased to receive flowers in such a creative way.
We love this set of teacups as one comes with a floral design and the other a cute polka dot design. Give mom two bouquets this way! Click here to view this product on Amazon.
7. Stunning Asymmetrical Bouquet
While having a mirrored bouquet is beautiful, there is drama in an arrangement that isn't perfectly identical on all sides. The use of taller blooms or greenery on one side of the composition makes a statement. Using similar color tones, such as purple and pink, allows the design to feel anchored and not chaotic. Tying a pretty ribbon around the stems lets you give mom the flowers without needing a vase.
8. Multiple Vase Centerpiece
Using multiple vases at varying heights offers a sensational floral centerpiece that mom would be proud to display on her dining room table. You could also use vases that are all the same height and still get a similar effect. There isn't a need for an abundance of flowers to make this dynamic arrangement work, which could be a benefit for your wallet.
These vintage bottle vases with a wooden tray will give you such an amazing floral display for mom. Click here to check out this product on Amazon.
9. Happy Colorful Tulips
Simple yet stunning, these multi-colored tulips offer a lovely arrangement for Mother's Day. Tulips are great stand-alone flowers that don't need extra fluff to make a statement. If mom loves the color pink, using one color and one type of flower can be just as impactful as using multiple colors. You could also do this same arrangement with calla lilies, which are beautiful by themselves.
10. Summery Sunflower Bouquet
Sunflowers are great to use as a focal point in any floral composition. The smaller flowers of various colors give this arrangement a sort of wild appearance as if freshly picked from a field. This is an upgraded version of those dandelion bouquets you gave mom as a child. She is sure to love the happy memories this design invokes.
11. Floral Wreath Arrangement
A floral wreath is a unique gift that mom will surely adore. Using artificial flowers will allow mom to display her wreath on her front door for all to admire. This flower arrangement can be customized in so many ways; the possibilities are truly endless. We've included a short video showing you three different ways to easily create a wreath for Mother's Day.
