Would You Give These 10 Crazy Arrangements to Your Mom?
1. Cat Got Your Tongue?
Nothing says “I love you, mom” quite like immortalizing her pet. Dutch sculptor, Cedric Laquieze, dresses animal skeletons—yes, that used to be Fluffy—and creates artificial flower arrangements out of them. We don’t know about you, but this is one of the creepiest things we’ve ever seen.
2. Unleash the Best for Mom
This is a cute alternative to standard bouquet and is available from 1-800Flowers.com—if mom can handle Rover wilting in a week, that is.
3. The Antique Lovers Bouquet
It’s an old-fashioned day at the beach with this 1940s handmade seashell flower bouquet from 1stdibs.com. It’ll cost an arm and a leg though: a whopping $3,200. But you can bet there won’t be another like it on the block.
A dozen of these 24K Gold Plated “Perfect” Roses from The Forever Rose will run you over a grand… but who can put a price tag on love?
5. Favorite Child
With a little do-it-yourself finessing, you can give your mama a picture of yourself giving her flowers… giving her flowers? There’s nothing conceited about that at all.
6. The DIY-Wanna-Be Bouquet
Just… don’t. No one likes a homemade, sweaty-looking fruit-kabob bouquet. Even if your heart had good intentions.
7. The Greens that Stay Green
Now this is a flower arrangement. Thank her for all those unpaid hours and, perhaps, reimburse her for that backed rent.
8. Lamp or Flower?
It’s a lamp. It’s a flower. It’s a lamp… It’s both. They aren’t available just yet, but Glowing Plant will soon be selling seeds that grow into glowing greenery. You can try the DIY approach, too, with some highlighter fluid and a YouTube tutorial.
9. Bring Brunch
It’s two gifts in one! A protein-packed brunch—picnic-style—wrapped up in the form of a gift. Bacon-wrapped roses, deli meat rosettes and cheesy spirals… delish!
Do yourself a favor (and your mom one, too), and go the traditional route with beautiful blossoms from 1StopFlorists, where your satisfaction is their guarantee.
