Mothers Day flowers and a brief history on why we give flowers to Mums on Mothers Day
This year Mother’s day in the Uk falls on the 14th of March. We Brits celebrate Mother’s Day on a different day than the US and the rest of Europe and Mother’s Day falls on a different day each year.
Why is that, you wonder. Before you order your Mothers Day flower I thought I’m going to give you a little history on Morher’s Day or Mothering Sunday as it’s sometimes called…
Mother’s Day and Mothering Sunday are 2 different celebrations.
Mother’s Day falls on the second Sunday in May and is a 19th century American invention. It’s now adopted in most countries as the day to show your Mother just how special she is.
Mothering Sunday is a religious festival that goes back to the Middle Ages.
It is celebrated on the 4th Sunday of Lent so it’s date is 3 weeks before Easter Sunday.
Mothering Sunday was a day where you were allowed to travel home and worship in your ‘Mother’ church and spend time with your family. This meant that people who were working and living away from their families had the opportunity to travel home and spend time with their Mothers and to worship in their families church or ‘Mothering’ church.
Travelling home for Mothering Sunday one would traditionally pick flowers on the way to present to their Mother and this is why flowers always played a big part in Mothering Sunday.
The religious tradition of Mothering Sunday is now mostly lost but giving flowers to your Mother and spend time with her is very much alive today.

Can I just finish off with a quick note; Let’s not forget about the Mothers who are no longer with us and let’s not forget about the childless Mothers, it’s not always a day of celebrations for some but a day of sadness.
