Honoring Our Many Relationships to Motherhood

Honoring Our Many Relationships to Motherhood

At Beet & Yarrow, we’re inclusive of the many different relationships we can have to motherhood—and ultimately, Mother’s Day is a day of empathy, remembrance, and appreciation for those who have cared for us. We’re happy if we can help someone feel seen, and this is at the heart of our approach to arranging.

For a long time, Mother’s Day was always pink flowery cards and sweetness—we just didn’t feel like there was much of a connection to real moms and the nuance of motherhood. Everyone has a different and complex relationship with moms; some have lost mothers, some are brand new mothers, and some have had a hard time becoming a mother. Some of us were more mothered by our fathers, or had a maternal relationship with another family member. There are stepmoms, and grandparents, and a host of parental figures; there are those who grieve lost parents or complicated dynamics. When honoring this relationship—in all of its forms—we want to empower caretakers and see them for who they are as individuals.

We are honored by every opportunity to help you show gratitude to the maternal caretaker in your life.

If you’re ordering for Mother’s Day, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • You’ll want to order at least a week ahead of time; this helps to get an order set before we sell out.
  • Our Designer’s Choice is a wonderful way to remain flexible with what’s in peak season and gift a totally unique arrangement. We’ll even try to accommodate you if you mention a favorite color; we do ask that you remain flexible here, since special requests are harder around busy holidays.
  • We branch out from the traditional bouquet of roses—although one of our design options has them!
  • If we do sell out, we usually have space for walk-ins willing to pick something up. 
  • We’ll offer arrangements in three colorways this year—orange, purple, and pink.

Thank you for letting us be part of celebrating your caretakers.
