Every Mom is different, and every Mom has her own idea of the perfect day. However, we are pretty certain that every mom has a common denominator as to how she wants to celebrate Mother’s Day – she wants to spend it with you! If your Mom is local to Wilmington, we have some ideas as to how she might like to spend her day, as well as a few suggestions as to how to make the day complete with floral designs. plants and gifts from Julia’s Florist.
Did You Know? Flowers are the #1 gift given on Mother’s Day. Moms and flowers have always just gone together, with stories of customs dating as far back as ancient Greece and Rome.
If Mom loves the outdoors, or can often be found puttering around in her own personal garden, how about planning a trip to the Airlie Gardens? These expansive botanical gardens are filled with azaleas, walking trails and 10 acres of freshwater lakes – and are the perfect way to get away from all the stresses of life. Find a beautiful backdrop and have a couple of photos taken as keepsakes, then send Mom home with one of our beautiful blooming baskets as a meaningful memory of the day.
Does Mom love art? Plan a visit to the Cameron Art Museum, a celebration of visual and performing arts located right here in Wilmington. Enjoy ongoing exhibitions, stroll through the art park, or enjoy a meal at the cafe, then give Mom a floral masterpiece to display at home. (shop our Mother’s Day collection here)
What a perfect day!
Who doesn’t love to be spoiled? Take Mom for a relaxing manicure and pedicure, or go all out and reserve an entire day at the spa. No matter what you choose, let her continue to relax at home with the Weekend Retreat Box. This gift is overflowing with fragrant, luxurious items, including the exclusive Cottage Greenhouse Sugar Beet & Blossom line of soaps and lotions. We then added a bottle of red wine, 2 shatterproof stemless wine glasses, a scented candle, and an arrangement of gorgeous roses. What a spectacular way to tell her that you love her!
At Julia’s Florist, we know how you feel – because we love our Moms too! Let us help you to honor her in the most beautiful way possible, with a floral arrangement or gift picked out just for her.
