Key Floral Trends – Mother’s Day 2022

Here are the top key floral trends of Mother’s Day 2022:

  • Almost Half of Florists Noted that Mother’s Day Sales 2022 were way better than expected – While this is not as high as the number reported last year, it’s still great to hear that 47% of florists had a better sales outcome than expected this year.
  • Website continue to be the major driver for Mother’s Day sales – Nearly half of orders come from florist websites, followed by phone calls with minimal walk-ins.
  • Artistic expression still the key to success for flower shops – Arranged flowers are still best sellers for over 80% of shops, and candy/Chocolates still remain the top choice as an add-on.
  • Still remains of an even split as far as who was open this year on Mother’s Day and what shops were not.  This has been identical for the past several years. 
  • The average price of an arrangement for Mother’s Day has increased slightly but still the average remains between $75.00 – $125.For more detailed answers to each question see the charts below:
