The History of International Mother's Day
International Women's Day was first observed in 1909 and was an effort by the UN
to promote women's rights. The date of this celebration is around March 8th
which is also known as the Sunday of Mothers, or Mothering Sunday, in many
countries in the world. This day celebrates motherhood and honours mothers all
over the world who continue to make sacrifices for their children and families.
In some countries, like South Africa, this day is a national holiday that takes
place every year on August 9th
What is the meaning behind giving flowers on Mother's Day?
It is believed that giving flowers on the day of the mother was started in
ancient Greece by the goddess, Mother Ann. The date was officially recognized as
International Women’s Day in different countries around the world and eventually
became known as Mothers Day here in the United States when President Woodrow
Wilson signed a proclamation declaring it so in 1914.

How to make sure your bouquet lasts longer
When it comes to flowers, colour and style are not the only things that matter.
You want your bouquets to last as long as possible, but also look their best for
as long as possible. To make sure they stay fresh longer, it is important to
take good care of them. One of the easiest ways to do this is by following these
easy tips: • Change water daily • Remove flower heads when they die (this will
prevent bacteria from accumulating) • Refresh water every two days
