DETROIT, May 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In 1907 Anna Jarvis, from Philadelphia, began a campaign to establish a national Mother's Day.  She persuaded her mother's church in Grafton, West Virginia to celebrate Mother's Day on the second anniversary of her mother's death, the 2nd Sunday of May.  She and her supporters began to write to ministers, businessmen, and politicians in their quest to establish a national Mother's Day.  By 1911 Mother's Day was celebrated in almost every state.  President Woodrow Wilson in 1914 made the official announcement proclaiming Mother's Day as a national holiday that was to be held each year on the second Sunday in May.

FlowerDeliveryExpress.com, a leading online flower delivery company, is prepared for their busiest holiday of the year which is Mother's Day.  They have purchased from their expert grower's special delivery orders just in time to ensure the freshest flowers available.  Wesley Berry, CEO says, "Many people falsely believe that Mother's Day was invented by florists as a way to increase sales.  The truth is Mother's Day has a long tradition and is celebrated in many countries."

FlowerDeliveryExpress.com in early February this year was the first business to successfully complete a delivery by drone.  Although their flower delivery by drone remains grounded by the FAA they have plenty of delivery vans ready to wow you Mom in time for Mother's Day.  Order early to ensure delivery is on time.
