Everyone is excited, happy and in a good mood during the holiday seasons. Flowers add to the happy factor since it has been scientifically proven that their appearance and pleasant smell are a factor contributing to a pleasant feeling to whoever receives them or looks at them.
Although Valentine’s Day is not considered a holiday season, we all know that the timing means that winter is over and spring is on the way, meaning that a variety of flowers will now be in season etc. We also all know that Valentine’s Day is nothing without flowers. Sending a loved one roses will show that you love and care for them, making them very happy and appreciative indeed. Sending flowers to someone who is not a partner or spouse has also become very common. Modern thinking has evolved the ideas of loving in terms of friendship. So many people decide to send their nearest and dearest friends roses too (yellow ones) to show them that they are thinking of them and that they love the friendship that they have with them. There are many other “friendship flowers”. Picking the right flower for the right person, to convey the right message is crucial, and a florist of flower expert at a market or department store can help you with this.
Christmas, as well as being known for endless eating, numerous gifts and Santa Clause’s arrival, is also a common holiday season where flowers take centre stage. Although trees will be bare, flowers will be scarce in the park and the grass will be covered in snow, does not mean that flowers cannot be included during your festive Christmas season.
Flowers can be used to decorate your homes. On the other hand, flowers can be gifted as a Christmas present. There isn’t a time of the year when sending flowers in inappropriate.
Many houses will have wreaths either hanging from their front doors or somewhere inside the house. This is to make the house look more attractive, and also to follow the tradition of Christmas.
The tree itself, although not a flower, belongs to the plant classification and is decorated to represent the spirit of Christmas and to decorate the home. Additionally, it also makes room for all the presents!
Flowers are an excellent choice of decoration since they are fresh and beautiful. Christmas generally tends to be a time of silver and gold, whether that comes from our candles, fake flowers or from the baubles on our Christmas tree. So using fresh flowers to decorate the rest of the place can add a splash of colour to your home.
Flowers can be kept in vases and kept on tables, on top of the fireplace, window sills etc. Similarly, you can use flower garlands to cover walls, to cover staircases or the top of the fireplace. You can even use flower garlands to cover the Christmas tree. A very good idea is to use a garland made up of red poinsettias or orchids and placing it around the Christmas tree. The contrast between the flowers and the deep green Christmas tree will look very attractive.
You may think that getting fresh flowers during the winter season is difficult, and it usually is. However, florists come prepared and will have in stock a variety of winter flowers and plants that will be perfect to decorate your home with. Whether it is a roses, carnations or orchids, the florist will have something to tickle your fancy.
With a beautifully decorated home, your festive celebrations can commence!
