Pamper Mom with Flowers & Food


In honor of the upcoming Mother's Day, we reached out to the real expert to shed some light on what Mom really wants this year. In this special guest post, flower extrordinaire Sarah Watts of Sarah's Garden gives us tips on how to make this Mother's Day a memorable one. Please enjoy!

“I will look after you and I will look after anybody you say needs to be looked after, any way you say. I am here. I brought my whole self to you. I am your mother.”
―Maya Angelou, Mom & Me & Mom


Mom. That name has a unique meaning for everyone. No mom is the same. They are sweet, funny, annoying, strong, comforting, smart, tough, wise, clingy, fun, helpful, worried, protective and most of all loving and living for us.

Spoiling your sweet momma on that special day to honor her should be uniquely tailored to who that awesome lady is. Flowers and food are such an amazing way to honor her and choosing the perfect blooms to say your message is always a straight shot to her heart.

Some favorite Mother’s Day blooms and their meanings are:

Peonies - Pink mean “devotion”, perfect for all mom does selflessly
Roses - Pink mean “perfect happiness”
Tulips - “perfect love”
Lilies - “humility, devotion, virtue”

Pamper her with a delicious meal and gorgeous blooms. Mom not having to cook just one meal makes her feel loved and special just the way she works so hard to make you feel that way, too! Taking her to the Olive Mill this Mother's Day will really "wow" her!

Or if she's more of a home cooked meal gal, grab some of the amazing items in the Queen Creek Olive Mill marketplace to take your meal to the next level. Set a beautiful table, showing her she taught you well. This is a perfect place for her to enjoy her flowers. Treat her with a single bloom, a vase of several of the same flower, or a gorgeous mixed bouquet to say all the things you want to say. Maybe include a mimosa or some gourmet coffee. Give her a hand-made card like you did when you were in Kindergarten. And don't forget lots of kisses and hugs!
