One of the hardest things I have ever experienced both physically and emotionally was pregnancy. There is nothing in this world like the gift of motherhood but the road to get there isn’t always sunshine and roses for every Mom-to- be! So, when Teleflora offered to send a mother in my life an arrangement to celebrate Mother’s Day I knew just who to send it to. My little sister is currently pregnant with her first baby girl due in July and in major need of a little celebrating.
She has already proven to be one tough mother during this pregnancy so I thought flowers were well deserved. After all, I believe you become a mother as soon as you feel that first little kick! At the very least pregnant ladies should be celebrated like Moms on Mother’s Day, because pregnancy is hard stuff y’all!
Like me, my sister has been pretty sick during her pregnancy so I wanted to brighten her day with a porch-full of bright and cheery flowers.
When I was pregnant I wasn’t up for visitors, but when a sweet friend of mine left a bag of goodies on my doorstep it was one of the most thoughtful gestures. I skipped the sweet treats for my sis and decorated her porch with a trail of silk flowers, pink balloons and of course a couple of bouquets from Teleflora.
My sister loves roses so I chose Teleflora’s Garden Rhapsody Centerpiece with its pink roses and hydrangea, as well as Teleflora’s Golden Laughter Bouquet filled with yellow roses. The perfect arrangements for celebrating her baby girl on the way.
The arrangements were gorgeous in person and I loved seeing her eyes light up when she received them. So, this Mother’s Day, why not leave a floral suprise for a Mom in your life? A floral bouquet from Teleflora is the perfect way to show your appreciation. That, and a bag of goodies never hurts…I’m talking chocolate…or wine, that is if she’s not expecting!
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you tough mamas out there!
