Mom deserves the world, but you don’t have to spend a lot to make her feel special. This Mother’s Day why not give her flowers in a vintage container? It is budget conscious idea for Mother’s Day that mom will love.
Not to mention a great way to recycle and keep pre-loved things out of the landfill. A win win for us all.

Where to Find Vintage Containers?
Vintage vases, gravy boats, transfer ware pitchers and the like are easy to find and a beautiful gift in addition to the flowers. While you are searching for Mother’s Day make sure to pick up something extra, like a tray for taking cupcakes to a bbq this summer or an addition “vase” or two to use as hostess gifts.
Where to Buy Mother’s Day Flowers
- Fresh Market
- Whole Foods
- Local Grocery Store
- Trader Joe’s
- farmers market
You can buy flowers or a plant at most markets or garden centers. Keep in mind that the prices are raised during popular holidays. But if you want a one of a kind Mother’s Day floral arrangement why not head outside and forage?
Foraging for flowers is one of my favorite ways to make an arrangement. The other is the addition of fresh herbs from the grocery store. I like to use the herbs as the greenery in the bouquets.
If your mom is like my mom any gift is welcome on her special day. But a unique and special gift made or foraged may be appreciated even more.
