When you hear the term “mother-in-law”,what comes to mind? While we often tell jokes and stories about awkward situations, the fact is that your mom-in-law was likely the single most influential person in your spouse’s life – before you, that is. On October 25th, you have the opportunity to thank her for creating and nurturing the person you love. For many, a spouse’s mom has become family; but even if you aren’t quite there, Mother-In-Law Day gives you the perfect chance to reach out and express your gratitude and respect.
As with any day we celebrate with flowers, the blooms we choose often carry deep meaning and sentiments. Traditionally, pink flowers – especially carnations- have conveyed gratitude to our moms, and those like mothers to us. But with so many flowers to choose from, tradition is optional. For instance, pinks and purples of all hues are popular choices; match those shades with the unspoken language of specific flowers, and you have a touching and meaningful message. Gerbera daisies represent cheerfulness and joy; roses speak to love and respect; and purple irises convey wisdom. What a beautiful way to honor her presence in your life!
There is perhaps no more direct correlation than the Eastern culture’s understanding of the lily, which officially represents motherhood in its entirety. Calla lilies stand for beauty, as do roses, gerbera daisies and orchids. So if you think she’s beautiful, inside or out, these flowers will make an ideal gift.
