Best places to order flowers for Mother’s Day

Floom Whipped Cream — $155.00

Browse floral arrangements designed by a curated selection of independent florists on Floom.

Matilda’s Bloombox ships beautiful DIY floral arrangements across the country, complete with a flower fact card and easy-to-follow video showing you how to arrange the blooms. The arrangement changes week to week, and is made with local and in-season flowers; this helps support local growers and is additionally great for those of us who are bad at making decisions. A single subscription starts at $39.

Bloomscape — $79.00

If your mom has a green thumb, try Bloomscape—the company will ship live plants right to her door. It has a large selection of both indoor and outdoor plants, including this adorable bromeliad pineapple ($65) that comes with its own pot. Prices start at $25 for ready-to-plant petunias and can go up to $195 for something like an extra large ficus tree, but there are many options in the under-$100 range.

FlowerBx — $60.00

Simple doesn’t necessarily mean boring, as evidenced by the gorgeous arrangements of a single type of flower—think Italian ranunculus, peonies, and snapdragons—from FlowerBx. (Seriously, they’re absolutely stunning in a vase and sure to get an IRL heart eyes emoji reaction). You can also gift mom a flower subscription, available as a weekly or monthly delivery. For curated Mother’s Day arrangements, prices range from $70 to $170.

The Sill — $90.00

The Sill is known for its beautiful array of live plants that can be delivered across the U.S., but if mom doesn’t really have a green thumb there are also several limited-edition DIY floral bouquet kits available.
