Phoenix, AZ, May 06, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- When it comes to flowers, Mother's Day is the ‘Mother’ of all holidays. According to a survey by the National Retail Federation, two-thirds (67.2%) of those celebrating Mother’s Day will buy mom flowers, spending a total of $2.3 billion in 2015. Many consumers will outsource the task to a local florist. However, there is a growing trend of consumers who want to play a larger role in the gift giving process. More consumers are looking for ways to give the gift of flowers while making memories in the process.
At Arizona Flower Market located in Phoenix, Arizona, more consumers are using their artistic side and opting for do-it-yourself, or DIY, flower arrangements. This is a great way to use your creative ability while spending quality time with family members. “We’re seeing a trend of do-it-yourself floral projects that the whole family wants to be a part of,” said Cheryl Denham, owner of Arizona Flower Market in downtown Phoenix. "Families can come in and pick up everything they need to create a masterpiece, from charming daisies in burlap-adorned Mason jars, to more elaborate table centerpieces. Our goal is to provide everything needed for just about any floral project a customer has in mind," said Denham. Arizona Flower Market makes it easy to DIY your Mother’s Day gift and make long-lasting memories mom will cherish.
You don't have to spend a bundle on an impressive florist designed arrangement. Here are some great (and simple) DIY project ideas for Mother’s Day and every day from Arizona Flower Market:
· If you are hosting a Mother’s Day brunch or dinner at your house, you can dress up the table with a centerpiece consisting of a bubble bowl (think fish bowl) filled half way with water, then curl a stem of Cymbidium Orchids under water and place a floating candle on top for added dramatic affect.
· Give Mom the gift of relaxation by wrapping a new book and incorporate into a wicker basket. Add a bunch of her favorite flowers, such as roses, tulips, or Gerbera daisies, tied with ribbon and attach a note that reads, "Today is your day to relax!" This works equally well with a music CD, DVD, or a bottle of wine.
Here are more suggestions from our friends at the Society of American Florists (SAF):
· Breakfast in bed is a treat that every Mom loves. Dads and kids can prepare a special morning for Mom by greeting her with a homemade breakfast in bed, on a tray adorned with blooming fresh flowers.
· Present Mom with a vase full of her favorite flowers, or mix several varieties. On each stem tie a "coupon" for a chore that you promise to do for her.
