Have you ever wondered why Carnations are widely gifted to moms on Mother’s Day?
According to Melissa Dunlap, the relationship between carnations and Mother’s Day began in the early 1900s. Many credit Anna Jarvis, the woman who first championed the idea of celebrating moms, with selecting the carnations as the flower of choice for Mother’s Day.
While pink carnation is traditionally considered a symbol of a mother’s love, there are also different colors which represents different messages:
Red – Deep Love and Passion
White – Purity, Truth and Perfection
Yellow – Trust, Compassion and Respect
