DIY Tulip BouquetAccording to a Teleflora survey, most moms this Mother’s Day would love flowers more than anything else.  But not just any flowers.

Skip the lilies and roses, and even bypass the potted plant (something more to take care of, not that great).  Instead, grab a mixed bouquet from your local florist or grocer, or even call it in if mom is far away for your Mother’s Day gifts.

Keep scrolling for flower inspiration!

What flowers are seasonal in May (and aren’t a lily or rose)?  Tulips are seasonal in May and are fairly easy to find without breaking the bank.  Other ideas: gerbera (also known as gerbera daisy or daisies), iris, sweet pea, orchid.
