Mother’s Day is on May 11th. That is just a few weeks away! Have you figured out what you are going to give your mom to thank her for the many years of love and dedication she has given you?
My mom passed away 10+ years ago and my mother in law passed away seven months later. Mother’s Day is always bittersweet for my family.
Did you know that Mother’s Day is the busiest day of the year when it comes to phone calls? When I worked for the phone company 20+ years ago they made extra certain to scheduled extra people on Mother’s Day to handle the massive call volume. That is because everyone wants to wish Mom a Happy Mother’s Day and thank her for all she’s done for you.
One of the most popular gifts to give mom or another special lady (wife, aunt, sister, grandmother…) on Mother’s Day is flowers – especially roses. Next to Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day is another popular holiday where bouquets of roses are given to loved ones.
If you are thinking about getting your mom or special someone roses for Mother’s Day this year consider checking out PassionRoses.
PassionRoses is a family-oriented company dedicated to growing and providing the highest-quality roses, both in beauty and sustainability. They are committed to supporting the communities where they live through education, donations, and community outreach.
Grown in Bogota, Columbia, PassionRoses bouquets can be found in more than 5,000 retail and grocery stores across the US in every color imaginable.
Since 2011, PassionRoses has been the “Official Rose of the Miss America Pageant.” PassionRoses was also selected by the Rose Bowl and the Tournament of Roses to become the “Official Rose of the Rose Bowl Game,” and the “Official Rose of the Rose Bowl Stadium.”
I checked out the website and they do offer a wonderful variety of colors. In addition to the common colors (red, pink and white) they also have orange and lavender.
Roses tend to be expensive when purchased in floral shops. That is because the floral shop needs to get back the money they spent to purchase the flowers plus a little more in order to make a profit. Purchasing from PassionRoses cuts out the “middle man”.
You could easily spend $50 or more for a dozen roses at a local florist. That comes out to a little over $4 per rose. At PassionRoses you can purchase 100 roses for $100 ($1 each!).
PassionRoses offers a variety of arrangements including 100 roses, 50 roses, two dozen roses, one dozen roses and even lovely arrangements with Roses & Lilies and Roses & Alstroemerias.
PassionRoses is having a special Mother’s Day promotion. You can save 10% on your order using the discount code ROSES4MOM. You can click on the image above for more information.
