Flower Delivery In Washington DC

Just wanted to let folks know about a cool little Squidoo Lens I came upon kind of by accident.  I have some friends who are having a baby in the DC area.  Actually in Northern VA at Fort Belvoir.  Anyway, the baby is due on Sunday and for whatever reason I thought about the baby coming and sending flowers while I was browsing around on Squidoo.  I entered in the search phrase flower delivery around Washington DC and a Lens came up called Kick Butt Flower Delivery Washington DC . It does a great job of recommending different flowers for different occasions and even has a section about the message that different types of flowers are meant to send as well as flower and plant care tips.  And while the site says it is specific to DC, you can actually order flowers to be delivered pretty much any where in the US.  So with Mother’s Day coming up I recommend this site as a place to order your Mother’s Day Flowers.

Innovative Ways To Celebrate Mothers Day With Flowers

Moms are amazing people. They selflessly care for their children making sure there are always clean clothes to wear, a delicious dinner on the table, and plenty of love to go around. They often put their families ahead of themselves expecting only a quick hug or a smile as a reward. That’s why celebrations honoring mothers have been occurring since the times of the ancient Greeks, and perhaps even before. The first official Mother’s Day in the United States was on May 9, 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson declared the second Sunday in May to be National Mothers Day, a day on which mothers throughout the country should be recognized for all they do.

Mothers Day Flowers have long been a traditional gift to present to mothers on Mothers Day. While every mom loves to receive a bouquet or arrangement of her favorite flowers, there are lots of other ways you can incorporate flowers into an extra special declaration of your love. And, it doesn’t matter what your age is or if you’re helping your own young children celebrate mom, you can use flowers to make this Mothers Day one she’ll always remember. Here are some ideas for both adult children and for younger children:

Adult Children

If you’re going to celebrate Mothers Day with dinner out, take a soup bowl and some silverware to your florist. Have the florist create a floral design in the bowl using the silverware as accessories to the arrangement. Place an invitation to the restaurant among the flowers.

For a public declaration of your love, take your mom out to a restaurant and arrange to have flowers delivered to the table.

Let your mom know she should relax today. Gift wrap a book and ask your florist to include it with a flower arrangement and a note telling her to spend her day relaxing.

Send your mom a Mothers Day tree or plant. Take photographs mounted on decorative paper or in small frames to your florist and ask him or her to tie them to a small tree or plant using matching ribbons.

Give your mom a corsage to wear throughout the day. She’ll especially enjoy this if she plans to attend a worship service or other public event where everyone can see the gift you’ve given her.

Young Children

Invite Mom to a movie. Take the movie section from a recent newspaper to your florist and ask him or her to place it in a box of flowers. Decorate the outside of the box with movie candy or candy and popcorn wrappers. Include a card letting Mom know she gets to pick the movie and you’ll buy the tickets and treats.

Send Mom on a floral treasure hunt. Purchase several single stems of flowers. Have your florist place a flower tube on each one. Hide the flowers around the house and give Mom clues to lead her to each one. Make the last find a vase to place the flowers in and a note letting her know what a treasure she is.

Breakfast in bed is a time-honored Mothers Day tradition. Place a pretty vase of her favorite flowers on the tray.

Whether her children are grown or still young, every mom deserves a special Mother’s Day. Your florist will be delighted to help you express your love and respect in almost any creative way you can think of-they might even be able to offer some ideas of their own!

Mothers Day Quotes – A Lifetime of Love Doesn’t End at 18

Well, Mother’s Day is coming up on us again. Are you ready to “WOW” your Mom with a show of thanks and gratitude? Will you honestly remember what motherhood is all about and what she did for you? To prepare you for adulthood, the stresses of life, teaching you how to make lemon-aide out of lemons.

Some say the Mother’s Day is too commercialized now, but what was it really for to begin with? Originally conceived by Julia Ward Howe after the American Civil War as a day honoring (in her opinion) the inherent pacifism of mothers, Mother’s Day now simply celebrates motherhood and thanks mothers.

The first Mother’s Day as we would recognize it was celebrated in Grafton, West Virginia, on May 10, 1908, in the church where the elder Anna Jarvis had taught Sunday School. Grafton is the home to the International Mother’s Day Shrine. From there, the custom caught on — spreading eventually to 45 states. Finally the holiday was declared officially by states beginning in 1912, and in 1914 the President, Woodrow Wilson, declared the first national Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day is a busy time of year for mail in many countries. In 1973, the U.S. Postal Service was held up for eight days because of the number of letters and cards.

Here are just a few quotes from people that we have heard of but never thought to have a mother. They honored their mothers with these wonderful and memorable words about motherhood.

James Fenton: The lullaby is the spell whereby the mother attempts to transform herself back from an ogre to a saint

Oliver Wendell Holmes: The real religion of the world comes from women much more than from men – from mothers most of all, who carry the key of our souls in their bosoms

Abraham Lincoln: I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.

Chinese Proverb: There is only one pretty child in the world, and every mother has it.

Remember Mom, she was the world to you in your childhood, the weirdo in your youth and the guide in your adulthood. She is “Mom.”

Mother’s Day Poems – The Perfect Addition to Any Mother’s Day Gift

I am 46 years old and since I was in grade school I have written my Mother a poem for each and every Mother’s Day. And every Mother’s Day my Mom still pulls out the shoe box she keeps all those poems in and reads each and every one out loud.

I love it when I am able to be with her on Mother’s Day to see her smile and laugh as she reads the poems from my younger days. And to see her eyes fill up with tears of happiness as she reads some of my more thoughtful and inspired Mothers Day poems.

That feeling only ranks second to how I feel each year as my two children bless their mother with poems of their own. Each Mother’s Day my wife also sits and reads every Mother’s Day poem my children have given her over the years. From the couple of lines scrawled beside the finger paint hand print on the yellowed paper plate to others handwritten on the inside of a cards that arrived by themselves or attached to flowers or gift baskets, I can see how each one means so much to my wife.

That is one of the reasons I look forward to Mother’s Day every year.  And this year I am hoping to hear from other folks who enjoy Mother’s Day as much as I do and especially those who like to give Mother’s Day Poems as a gift or as part of a larger gift.  It would be really great if folks could share some of their favorite Mother’s Day Poems.  It might just inspire some folks to write one for the first time and make Mother’s Day 2009 one of the most special ever for their mother and/or wife.

I would also like to hear stories about your memories of some of your best Mother’s Day.

This Mother’s Day is particularly exciting for me because my wife and I are expecting another child on April 19th.  So this Mother’s Day will be the first Mother’s Day in a long time with a new baby.  And I am already working on a special poem for the event.  I will share it after Mother’s Day if it is alright with her.  Same with the one I am writing for my Mom.

My hopes are that although this year has been a tough one so far, that more folks will write a poem or letter letting their Mother’s know how much they are loved and appreciated and that  this extra thought and effort could help make Mother’s Day 2009 the best yet for a lot of the Moms out there.
