Mother’s Day Centerpiece Ideas

Any of these plants for Mother’s Day centerpieces in a simple vase or another container will make mom happy. To make the day even more special, try crafting a unique centerpiece display or table arrangement for Mother’s Day.

Arrange mom’s favorite cut flowers (from the garden) in a pretty teapot that she can take home as a gift. Choose her favorite flowers or plants and buy them potted. Repot in pretty containers so she can use them as houseplants or replant outdoors in her own garden.

Instead of using any type of vase or container, lay flowers along a center table runner in large bunches. Add in greenery to make a naturalistic display. If your budget only allows for a few flowers, use glass bowls or vases filled with water to float blooms. It makes a striking centerpiece with just a couple of individual flowers.

Use large bunches of fresh-cut lilacs for an unparalleled, beautiful display of floral perfume. Celebrate mom with her favorite color. If she loves yellow, for instance, make displays of yellow roses, daffodils, and sticks of blooming forsythia.

Any time your mom knows you’re thinking about her, she will feel loved. For this special day though, go the extra mile with a thoughtful arrangement and centerpiece she’ll really enjoy.
