This Sunday, May 29, we will celebrate mothers. Like every year, florists will be taken by storm… Despite inflation which has caused the price of bouquets to jump. According to Franck Poncet, president of the Emova Group board (Monceau Fleurs, Happy, Coeur de Fleurs, Au Nom de La Rose) interviewed by Le Parisien, the overall price of flowers should increase “by 3 to 4%”. Information to be taken with caution, because some flowers are much more accessible than others. It depends on their origin and their rarity, according to the Ile-de-France daily. Conversely, the more symbolic flowers of Mother’s Day, such as peonies or roses, are unfortunately victims of rising prices.

To give your mother a pretty bouquet of flowers without breaking the bank, fortunately there are a few tips. For example, most florists offer flower bundles. Choose a few to your liking and assemble them yourself for an original creation that your mother won’t see anywhere else! If you want to slip in a rose or a peony here and there, the result will be less expensive than if you opt for a single bouquet.

Have you fallen for a pretty bouquet of flowers online and the price seems more than reasonable to you? Beware! Online stores indicate their prices excluding delivery costs. Allow around fifteen additional euros depending on the florist. Regarding a possible increase in delivery prices caused by the rise in fuel prices, Armelle Baudard, general manager of, says she is trying “to absorb these costs for the moment”.
