There is no artist more closely associated with sunflowers than Vincent Van Gogh. His series of paintings depicting vases filled with a dozen flowers or just one or two lying on a table are some of the most famous paintings in the world. He perfectly captured the fiery colours of these large blossoms and the combination of sturdiness and fragility that sunflowers possess. The petals themselves are quite small, but there as so many of them that encircle the flower head so as to give a glowing effect. These fragile petals, of course, top a sturdy base and stem, so that sunflowers appear strong and radiant at the same time.

Think of all the times you might want to decorate your home with a splash of sunshine. If you are having a tea party in the summer, a single sunflower on each table can be a bold centerpiece. A cluster of them could be appropriate for a more formal occasion such as an outdoor wedding, a birthday party or a baby shower. When the grass is green, the sky is blue and there are white clouds drifting by overhead, sunflowers can complete the picture better than any other blossom. Van Gogh captured their essence many times over; now you can have them for yourself or give them to a friend or loved one so that he or she can enjoy bringing some sunshine inside.
Sunflowers originated in the Americas, but today they are closely associated with the hot summer months in many countries. Have you ever vacationed in the south of France during the summer? The fields of sunflowers stretch for miles and miles, making the whole country appear sunnier. Or head further south and you can see them covering the rolling hills in parts of southern and eastern Europe. Sunflowers can instantly bring back memories of lovely childhood vacations where you were free to run barefoot down the dirt roads and roam the countryside without a care in the world. That feeling is hard to re-capture, especially during a rainy summer in northern Europe. But you can certainly grasp a bit of those lovely feelings and emotions by having a sunflower bouquet delivered to someone’s door. Or to your own. Who says that you can only order flowers for delivery for someone else? Give a gift to yourself this time and see what a difference fresh flowers can make in your home, whether you are having guests or not.
