There are plant growth regulator products that professionals use to cause premature flower drop. They are usually used for nuisance fruit. Florel, Oive Stop are two popular products. I don't know if they will work for Mimosa - Silk tree. I frankly have never had a request or known anyone who wanted to do this.
They flowers are messy I know, but I would consider it a blessing and not a burden, they are so beautiful.
