For those of you who leave everything to the last minute (and you know who you are!!!), MOTHER'S DAY 2021 is May 8th.
For the next few weeks, we'll be featuring special posts here at the blog to help you keep the shopping--and more--as local as possible....
But for now....
many of you still celebrate this day with an orchid corsage? Orchids
were THE flower of choice in the 60's and 70's....and still are in some families......
--MOTHER'S DAY ETIQUETTE LIVES ON...CORSAGE BEAUTY courtesy of CHICKS DOWN SOUTH:
"As a young child, I remember the importance of my sister and me picking out a white corsage for my mother to wear at church on Mother’s Day. This flower does not symbolize her being a mother, but rather shows her love in an outward manner for her own mother. My Mom would wear a white flower which indicated her mother was deceased. If your mother is alive you would wear red or pink." READ MORE FROM CHICKS DOWN SOUTH HERE.
