The Flowers were wonderful-thank you so much for everything. I will be referring you guys for sure! Everyone commented on how incredible they were. Our day was perfect.
On mother's day, children wish their mothers over the phone or send them bouquets of fresh flowers. This is done only by those children who do not have the time to personally visit their mothers on this very special day.
There is a trend that revolves around wearing flowers on mother's day. If a girl or woman is seen wearing a pink or red flower, it is assumed that her mother is alive. On the other hand, a white flower stands to signify that the girl or woman's mother is dead. As a part of mother's day customs in the United States of America, children take their mothers out for a festive dinner to show their gratitude. Some children even go all the way to cook their mothers large and elaborate dinners, thus giving their mothers respite from chronically busy schedules. Mother's day in America has acquired the status of a national holiday and that is something you probably didn't know. On this day, American mothers, actually do get to break away from their day-to-day activities. The official flower presented to mothers on mother's day is the red carnation. This is just a tradition; it is absolutely okay for an American kid to give his or her mother just about any kind of flower.
When her mother, Ann Reeves, died in 1905, Jarvis organized the first observances of Mother's Day at the Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton, and later in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The mother of Mother's Day, Anna Jarvis. She chose the second Sunday in May because it was the Sunday closest to her mother's death. The white carnation, Reeves' favorite flower, became the holiday's symbol.
Jarvis, who had no kids of her own, had a singular understanding of what Mother's Day flowers should mean. She saw it as a day for children to visit their mothers at home and to remember the sacrifices that they had made.
"This is not a celebration of maudlin sentiment. It is one of practical benefit and patriotism, emphasizing the home as the highest inspiration of our individual and national lives," Jarvis wrote.
She began a letter-writing campaign, reaching out to anyone who she thought could help promulgate the idea. "Any mayor, merchant or minister," Antolini said. She wrote to Teddy Roosevelt. To Mark Twain.
To every state governor, every year. By 1914, when most states had already recognized the day locally, the US congress passed a law designating Mother's Day a national holiday. A day later, president Woodrow Wilson issued an official proclamation.
