Beyond chrysanthemums: A cheeky guide to Mother's Day flowers.

Mother's Day is a beautiful occasion dedicated to honouring the incredible women who have shaped our lives with love, care, and wisdom. It's a time to express gratitude and appreciation for everything our mums do for us. And what better way to convey our heartfelt sentiments than with a gorgeous bouquet of flowers? 

While Chrysanthemums have long been the go-to flower for this occasion, why limit ourselves to just one bloom? Let's dive into an exploration of why Chrysanthemums aren't the only flowers to give on Mother's Day and explore a range of other delightful options available. 

We’ve called this our ‘Cheeky guide to Mother’s Day flowers’ because you can add-on our best-selling Cheeky Chocolate Almonds with each of these gorgeous blooms. These almonds have been surprising everyone across Australia with their show-stopping taste -  trust us on this - we haven’t met someone yet that hasn’t loved them! 


First things first, let's give credit where credit is due. Chrysanthemums, with their vibrant colours and symbolic meanings of love and loyalty, have rightfully earned their place as a classic Mother's Day gift. They're like the reliable friend who always shows up with a smile, and there's nothing wrong with that!

But why not mix things up a bit? Imagine the look on mum's face when she receives a bouquet bursting with blooms handmade by our talented florists and handpicked by you, each carrying its own unique charm and message. Let's break away from pigeon-holing ourselves into just giving Chrysanthemums and explore some alternative floral delights.

Premium show-stopping bouquets

Let’s talk about the flowers that bring in the ‘wow factor’. These bright and bold blooms are dressed to impress and we guarantee they most certainly will! So don’t be afraid to go big. Go large. Go bountiful and beautiful and knock their socks off with these stunning bunches. There’sBlushing Beauty, the best-sellingCoral Cutie or the traditionalTimeless Classic. These beauties are filled with all the popular kids on the block - roses, orchids, disbuds and many more. 


There’s nothing like hearty Aussie natives and lush green foliage. Natives are looking their seasonal best during May. Surprise your mother figure with a gorgeousMiimi & Jiinda flower jar, designed by Indigenous artist Melissa Greenwood. The best part? The beautiful artwork jar can be used again and again!



If your mother-figure prefers natives in a single stem variety, proteas are a native favourite! Proteas are not only stunningly beautiful with their bold, exotic appearance but also carry a deep significance - symbolising strength, resilience, and admiration - making them a meaningful gift for celebrating the strong and nurturing women in our lives. 


Bring a ray of sunshine into mum's life with cheerful sunflowers. These bright blooms are a symbol of happiness and positivity, they’re also an instant mood booster and are sure to put a smile on mum's face.


Two words… blooming beautiful! There’s a reason why tulips are one of the most popular flowers of all time. These beauties will follow the sun throughout the day, and almost look like they are dancing as they twist and turn! Tulips are sent in bud form to bloom at home for longer lasting flowers. 

Now that we've explored some floral alternatives, let's not forget that variety is the spice of life! LVLY offers an array of gift bundles that go beyond just flowers.

Let’s not forget those who have lost a mother figure
