International Mothers Day

Mother's Day is celebrated all around the world. It seems to be a universal thing that cultures put a day aside each year to celebrate the act of motherhood. To pay tribute both to the miracle of birth and to the special woman who performed that miracle: your mother. However not everywhere celebrates Mother's Day on the same 'Mothering Sunday' as the UK.

There are many different Mother's Day celebrations around the world, as the complicated table below makes clear! The most common alternative date is the second Sunday in May. This is the American date, and it came about like this...

For whatever reason, possibly a wish to disassociate themselves from British traditions, the pilgrim fathers who first travelled to America didn't seem to take Mothering Sunday with them. Centuries later, in 1908, Mrs Anna Jarvis set up Mother's Day as the Americans know it today, for the second Sunday in May. In 1914 she was successful, and since then this has been the date of Mother's Day in America - and beyond.

Can I get flowers delivered on Mother's Day?

Yes you can! We can deliver on Sunday the 10th of March, which is perfect if you won't be able to see your Mum on Mother's Day but still want to send her a gift to express your love. All our flowers are carefully packed to ensure they arrive in great condition for your Mum to enjoy.

When should I order flowers for Mother's Day delivery?

The last day you can order flowers for delivery on Mother's Day is usually a few days before Mother's Day, but we can get busy (and some bouquets can sell out) so it's best to order your flowers early.  You can choose the delivery date when you pay.

Can I send flowers with a Mother's Day Message?

To include a message with your flowers simply add the flower bouquet to your basket. You will then be asked what Product Extras you would like to include (chocolates/vase), and then press continue. After this you will be given the option to include a Message Card. You can either choose a handwritten card or a free printed card to include with your flowers. Please make sure to write your name in the message so your Mum knows who it is from!

How long will the Mother's Day flowers last?

Mother's Day bouquets will last a minimum of 7 days, and in many cases a lot longer. When you order flowers from Clare Florist you’re covered by our 7 Day Freshness Guarantee.
