Celebrating May

The month of May ushers in the flowers of the fields, love in Spring, and the month we celebrate our mothers. Spring rebirth and warmth is echoed in the embrace of mothers, from our own birth to our eventual winter. A mother’s love is as eternal as the cycles of the seasons. 

At fleurdetroit we celebrate the many types of mothers and exuberantly thank all for the roles they have played in our lives. Our teams have made celebrating mom easy through a curated gift guide and new floral collections. Have fun finding that perfect something for mom through our online shoppe, or stop in for a guided tour of our varied curiosities and special gems. We guarantee if mom sees a fleurdetroit bag, she will make you the favorite of the day.


A Mother's Day Poem by Kahlil Gibran
The most beautiful word on the lips of mankind is the word “Mother,” 
and the most beautiful call is the call of “My mother.” 
It is a word full of hope and love, 
a sweet and kind word coming from the depths of the heart. 
The mother is everything – 
she is our consolation in sorrow, 
our hope in misery, and our strength in weakness. 
She is the source of love, mercy, sympathy, and forgiveness….
Everything in nature bespeaks the mother. 
The sun is the mother of earth and gives it its nourishment of heart; 
it never leaves the universe at night until it has put the earth to sleep to the song of the sea and the hymn of birds and brooks.
And this earth is the mother of trees and flowers. 
 It produces them, nurses them, and weans them. 
The trees and flowers become kind mothers of their great fruits and seeds. 
And the mother, the prototype of all existence, is the eternal spirit, full of beauty and love.
