6 Leading Floral Experts Creating Striking Bouquets for Mother’s Day

These colorful and creative arrangements by Ovando, Lewis Miller, and more are the perfect way to express love and appreciation

Moms are often the unsung heroes of the family—the caregiver and archivist, front-row cheering section and social calendar overseer. They give hugs, advice, support, unconditional love, and so many other things, so on Mother’s Day, it’s about time we give just a little bit of that back with a thoughtful token of our appreciation.

Flowers are a wonderful way to mark the occasion this Sunday. And thankfully, floral designers are letting their imaginations run wild, crafting colorful arrangements bursting with exuberant colors, intoxicating scents, and inventive shapes certain to make a lasting impression.

Here, Galerie looks to a few favorite sources for striking bouquets of the most beautiful blooms sure to let Mom know just how much she’s loved.
