“Youth fades; love droops; the leaves of friendship fall; A mother’s secret hope outlives them all.” — Oliver Wendell Holmes
Mother's Day is quickly approaching! This year at The Million Roses, we believe that it's more important than ever to recognize the people you love. Elegant floral gifts, such as Happy Mother's Day roses, are the perfect way to accomplish this. Our collection of vibrant, long-lasting roses is designed to put a smile on the face of everyone who receives them — the perfect gift for both friends and family.
In these uncertain times, showing appreciation to loved ones can help deepen personal connections and facilitate positive emotions. Flowers are filled with symbolism and have long been associated with bringing positive energy into relationships. To help celebrate Mother's Day, we think the best choice of flower to gift is the rose.
Roses have been closely linked to motherhood throughout history. In ancient Greece, for instance, roses were thought to be sacred to maternal figures such as Isis and Aphrodite. Happy Mother's Day roses have been given as a gift since Mother's Day was made an official holiday by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914.
Choosing the best roses for Mother's Day can be overwhelming due to the sheer number of options available. That's why we've put together this handy guide to help you choose roses for both friends and family members.
Best Colors for Happy Mother's Day Roses
Roses come in more than 2,5000 varieties, and each color evokes a different emotion. It's important to consider the recipient when selecting which color to gift.
Red roses are often associated with deep passion, and many believe they should be reserved only for romantic occasions. However, we believe red roses are the perfect way to make a strong declarative statement of love. Gifting red Mother's Day roses is a great way to say "I love you" this year.
For a more subtle and welcoming present, consider gifting pink Mother's Day roses. The color is often associated with happiness as well as appreciation and gratitude.
Mother's Day Gifts for Best Friends
Best friends are an essential part of life, and we believe gifting flowers is the best way to express gratitude towards these supportive, loyal, and accepting individuals. We think you should go bold this year and gift roses that are 'outside of the box.' Our gold roses, for instance, are an excellent way to gift handcrafted and luxurious roses that make a lasting impression. They're also meant to symbolize friendship and joy.
If this is your first Mother's Day gift for a friend, consider a more traditional gift of yellow roses. Yellow roses have long been associated with friendship, and their bright color always helps spread cheer and optimism.

All our boxes can last up to three years, and there are more than 100 different arrangements to choose from.
