If selecting a bouquet of highlighter-hued carnations from a pink-and-purple webpage feels impersonal, that’s because it is. When it comes to deciding on an arrangement for your mom, there’s nothing quite like picking out the perfect peonies in person. This year, instead of browsing the big-box chains for Mother’s Day blooms, check out one of these local shops.

 🌸 LauraJean Floral & Design 🌸

LauraJean Pecci’s designs run the gamut. From minimal succulent arrangements to blushing bouquets, her striking styles are a refreshing change of pace from the usual pickings.

🌻 Rouvalis Flowers & Gardens 🌻

As a decades-old institution in Beacon Hill, the designers at Rouvalis Flowers are experts when it comes to infusing arrangements with a distinctive charm. The shop’s Mother’s Day collection is worth a look.

 🌷 Table & Tulip 🌷

The vibrant arrangements dreamed up by owner Andrea Halliday and her team at this South End studio are fresh, fragrant, and always stunning. They come in a variety of styles, but we’re eyeing the Sweet and Spicy bouquet for mom this year.
