History of Mothers’ Day

Mothers’ Day is a holiday celebrated annually throughout the world. The first Mothers’ Day took place in the United States in 1907. A woman called Anna Jarvis held a memorial service for her mother who, during her lifetime, had organised female-only groups to promote friendship and health. Since then, Mothers’ Day has been celebrated every year.

Although the first ‘Mothers’ Day’ took place in 1907, festivals honouring mothers and motherly figures date back to ancient periods. For example, the Phrygians had a festival to celebrate Cybele, the Great Mother of the Gods.

While Mothers’ Day is primarily a day to celebrate and honour mothers, the day is widely known to celebrate the other motherly figures, including grandmothers and aunties.

How to celebrate Mothers’ Day

There is no right or wrong way to celebrate Mothers’ Day! You may wish to simply tell your Mother, or another important motherly figure, how much you appreciate them. Others may wish to purchase cards or gifts. Here at Flower Station we like to keep things simple and believe the best way to mark the day is with flowers. Flowers have long been associated with femininity and womanly grace due to their delicate petals and vibrant perfumes, making them an ideal gift for the important women in your life. Flowers have also been used for centuries to send private and personal messages - Victorians used flowers to express their feelings to the extent that they created their very own ‘language of flowers’ that is still spoken by florists to this day!
