If you're stumped on finding Mom a present for Mother's Day, look no further. It's simple to create a bouquet that looks professional, and the personal care put into it will show Mom how much you love her.

1. Red is the Color of Love
A vibrant red bouquet is always gorgeous and is a real showstopper. A dozen roses is always appreciated, but that can be expensive. Make Mom a red bouquet that really pops.

a. Combine just 2 or 3 large red roses with other red flowers — like carnations and tulips — for a more textured look
b. Use some baby's breath flowers to fill in the empty spaces and to complement the different flowers
c. Buy some red ribbons to tie the bouquet together
d. Make the look more luxurious by gluing some rhinestones or sequins to the ribbons
e. You can even get a red glass vase to pull the whole look together

Mom will adore the effort you put in and she will have a bouquet like no other!

2. Mom is Your Sunshine
It's not every day that someone receives a bright bouquet of happy sunflowers. What a statement you'll make with a homemade arrangement especially crafted for Mom's special day.

Why Choose Sunflowers?
Sunflowers are quite large, so you'll only need a few in order to create a nice bouquet.
They make such a statement that you really don't want to add another type of flower to the mix. Their long, thick stems are where you can focus your attention.

a. Place 4-5 sunflowers together so their stems touch and they form a bouquet
b. Wrap some festive ribbons in shades of orange, brown and white around the stems to create a nice balance of color to the bouquet and to bring out the sunflowers' natural beauty
c. Add a pretty bracelet around the stems for Mom to wear later

Added bonus? Mom can toast up some tasty sunflower seeds for a healthy snack when the flowers start to lose their luster!

3. Sweet Enough to Eat
Not all bouquets must be made of flowers. You can create something that tastes just as good as it looks! A candy bouquet is whimsical and will certainly be enjoyed by everyone (as long as Mom is willing to share).

a. Use a variety of long colorful treats so the candy bouquet looks impressive
b. Some treats that work well are candy canes or sticks, long lollipops, licorice sticks, king-size chocolate bars and chocolatedipped pretzel rods
c. Arrange the treats in a colorful vase filled with candy kisses or gumballs at the bottom made to look like pebbles or small rocks. Mom's sweet tooth will thank you

As long as you create your bouquet with love, Mom is sure to adore her homemade gift. Have a happy Mother’s Day!

If you — or Mom — have a favorite flower or color, create your own magic.
If you are not sure which flowers to use, look for what’s blooming or in season.
