The choice of flowers should conform to the occasion they are to be associated with. There are so many occasions which necessitate giving flowers, to express respect, joy, sympathy, congratulations, etc. And there are so many different kinds of flowers as each kind suits a different event or occasion. The language of flowers is so sophisticated that people need guidance in order to make the best choice of flowers and express their emotions and message appropriately. But once you know this language you will understand the beautiful relationship between flowers and people even is sometimes the occasion is not so happy.
Choosing flowers for funerals is traditionally determined by sternness and sparing use of flowers and colours. But to be certain that they will make the correct choice, people should ask funeral homes, or the family of the deceased person to whom they would like to pay their respect. Often there are some cultural or religious values and implications involved in such sad occasions, and to be certain that everything will be appropriate and no one will feel neglected or with violated values, asking about any limitations or peculiarities is essential. There are some general limitations, such as the inappropriateness of sending wreaths or caskets to the homes of departed persons.
Choosing the best flowers to be sent to patients in hospitals also has its specificities. There are rules that hospitals impose which are needed to protect the hospital staff and patients, and such rules have to be observed. Flower bouquets and other arrangements should not be too big, as the space inside patient areas is usually small. Floral arrangements which need special containers to hold them should not be sent to patients in hospitals, because the hospital staff may not be able to provide the right containers. Potted flowers are another type of floral gifts that should not be sent to people in hospitals, because the soil may contain bacteria or other types of contaminants that could pollute the environment and prove to be adverse to people’s health.
Flowers to be sent to people that have just had babies also need to conform to certain rules. The flowers for the mum of the new baby should be complemented by a soft toy for the baby, and it would also be right to include something for the baby’s father. In fact, flowers sent on the occasion of the birth of a new baby are mostly to congratulate the mother on the happy event. They are part of the overall present which can have different components. People who know that the parents enjoy chocolates can complement their floral gifts with a box of delightful chocolates. Adding a bottle of quality champagne is another common option which people choose. There are also hampers containing a selection of chocolates, a bottle of champagne or wine, etc., which can be ordered online and are a fully rounded and delightful complement to a flower bouquet.
Different occasions need the correct choice of the best flowers. Florists are experienced in differentiating among flowers for a given type of event, and when they are complemented by chocolates or wine, especially for happy occasions, they add to the positive emotions and leave lasting fond memories in recipients.
