Mother's Day is less than a week away and Marysol Castro had a chance to chat with our friend, Alfred Palomares, the vice-president of merchandising at 1-800-flowers.com, about some unique ways to stay connected with and celebrate our moms this year.
There are roughly 85 million moms in the U.S. and 69 percent of all Mother’s Day gifts are
According to 1-800-flowers, Mother's Day is their largest flower holiday. “We plan on selling well over 21 million stems this year.”
So they're pulling out all stops creating wonderful arrangements to help us express, connect and celebrate all our wonderful moms. “One our newest arrangements is also one of the most popular arrangements and that's the “One of the Kind bouquet. We recently created the bouquet to give our local florists around the country the flexibility to create one of a kind flowers for moms using the freshest flowers available in their local communities.”
“If you're looking for something really amazing over the top we have our exclusive ‘Preserved Roses Duo” leveraging lavender and pink. These precious roses are premium roses that are soft, lush and the best thing they will last six month if not longer.”
One of our most popular blooming plants is the “Graceful Gardenia.” What makes it so popular is it's big white fragrant blooms. “And if you're a plant mom, our “Sweet Succulent Heart Garden’ is the perfect gift to add to her collection. It’s an easy low maintenance easy to care for plant.”
