Mother's Day Flower Delivery
Order a bouquet of flowers for Mother's Day and have it delivered to your home from Monday to Saturday
For us florists, it's THE most important and engaging celebration! Every year, on the 2nd Sunday of May (in Switzerland), Mother's Day takes place.
Our Perly-Certoux workshops are then transformed into a hive where everyone is busy making round bouquets, armfuls of roses or peonies, compositions and little attentions for mothers, but also for daughters, sisters, and grandmothers of our customers.
Flower arrangements for Mother's Day
At the beginning of May, around Mother's Day, nature is quite generous with the flowers that grow in the ground or in greenhouses. It is therefore possible to create great varieties of floral compositions. As France (also a flower-producing country) does not celebrate mothers on the same date as us, we find on the market and at our local suppliers plants in abundance.
For Mother's Day, the round bouquet made up of local flowers is very popular. After a period of great exuberance (Christmas, New Year's Day, Valentine's Day), we generally witness the return to a certain calm, and the return of softer colors. At this time of the year, customers prefer to reduce the use of accessories, in favor of bigger bouquets, with more flowers. Elegant, classic, minimalist, romantic, or bohemian … your mom deserves the best you can offer. We make the floral arrangement match every personality. It is in the intimate atmosphere of our boutique that we develop together the perfect bouquet.
In the shop, you can find many varieties of flowers at this time of year, such as: roses (more than 80 different varieties at Bouvard Fleurs), peonies, hydrangeas, lilac flowers, forget-me-not flowers, grape hyacinths, lisianthuses, heart of Mary flowers, and tulips.
During Mother's Day, we also offer heart-shaped bouquets and compositions for sale. Because of its shape, the heart inspires tenderness and gentleness. It also conveys emotions and a universal message of love and affection.

A little history
An embryo of Mother's Day already existed in Roman and Greek civilizations. In Ancient Greece, in the spring, Rhea, the mother of all the gods, was celebrated. The Romans, for their part, celebrated in June the “Matralia” festival of women and mothers.
The Christian religion gradually made these pagan customs disappear.
In England, as early as the 16th century, a feast called “Mothering Sunday” was celebrated at the beginning of Lent. This date was then set for the 4th Sunday in spring. This feast was an opportunity for all the mothers who worked as servants in wealthy families to return to spend the day in their homes with their families, since they had time off on this occasion.
In the United States, some people wrongly refer to Julia Ward Howe. In 1862 this writer and feminist promoted a national Mother's Day in the USA. In these times of civil war (war of secession) this holiday should not honor mothers, but rather bring them together in a kind of “Anti-war movement”; Julia Ward Howe wanted to get American mothers to take a stand against the war and thus ensure that no more human lives were sacrificed.
It is undoubtedly thanks to Ann Jarvis that we owe the reintroduction of Mother's Day. At the beginning of the 20th century, she promoted a Memorial Day for all mothers, the second Sunday in May, in memory of her deceased mother. She distributed 500 white carnations in front of a church, to each of the mothers present. In 1909, Mother's Day was celebrated in 45 states of the American Union and in 1914, Congress declared Mother's Day an official holiday.
In Switzerland, Mother's Day has been officially celebrated since 1917 and takes place on the second Sunday of May. It was established following the United States and was modeled on the American custom, as was the case for other countries in Europe and in the world such as Germany, Austria, Holland, Denmark, Belgium, Finland, Italy, Turkey, and Australia.
