Last-Minute Bouquets to Send Mom (Because You Totally Remembered Sunday Is Mother’s Day, Right?)


STEVEN MEISEL

Mother’s Day is this Sunday, and if you’re hearing the news here first, never fear—between our essential guide to Mother’s Day gift ideas and our handy guide to chic floral arrangements that Mom can receive by Sunday, you will be in the clear. For those who love English gardens, opt for a special arrangement from FlowerBx, a London-based florist that has just opened up shop in New York City. Catering the London’s fashion elite, Flowerbx is now the florist to turn to for beautiful arrangements of roses, peonies, and lilies. For a modern mom who prefers houseplants to blooms, try Urban Stems for a fine selection of ZZ and Aglaonema plants. For those who prefer something more rustic, we love H. Blooms’ handcrafted bundles. Need to ship internationally? We have that covered too. For those of you who wish to make your gift of flowers as meaningful as possible, donate 50 tulips, daffodils, or mums to New York’s Central Park in your mom’s honor. For all 10 of the best Mother’s Day bouquet options, see below.
