Flowers are perfect as both gifts and decorations for every occasion, event and party imaginable and this is why we love them so much. There is so much variety in the flowers available, the colours they come in and the ways in which they are presented and decorated that you are sure to find something to suit both the occasion and the recipient. Furthermore, flowers are very symbolic, certain flowers have various meanings attached to them, so you can convey your feelings within your choice of flowers.
Flowers make an ideal birthday present, especially if you do your homework and get the recipients favourite flowers and colours. Flowers are also perfect in situations where you do not know the recipient very well and therefore buying them something personal like clothes or a CD would be very difficult, whereas buying flowers is relatively easy…everybody likes flowers!
If you are decorating for a birthday party, you can add a few vases of flowers or potted plants around the venue, especially if you are celebrating an adult rather than children’s birthday, and want to keep to a classy and sophisticated feel.
Remind your wife or husband of your ever-growing love on your anniversary by having a bunch of her favourite flowers delivered to her. If she doesn’t have a favourite flower in particular, send roses or red flowers symbolising love. Consider the meanings behind the flowers and the colours you choose to truly symbolise your love.
If you are planning an anniversary dinner why not have a vase or two of flowers scattered about, or petals littering the dinner table, any kind of flower or plant that you add will add romance to the evening.
Valentines Day Flowers
When you are considering what flowers to send your valentine first consider your relationship. Even if you already know that you want to stick to traditional roses, the colour you choose is symbolic of your relationship with the recipient. More than one colour symbolises a union of two people, therefore this would be ideal. Red roses, for example represent a passionate and true love, lavender roses represent love at first sight, peach roses represent a hidden love, etc.
