Making My Home More Beautiful With Flowers

One day after I got home from a business meeting, I realized that my home needed a little more visual appeal. Instead of filling my home with loads of boring knick-knacks, I decided to invest in natural flowers and beautiful floral arrangements. I worked with a local florist to provide me with local, seasonal flowers, and it was incredible. My home smelled better and felt like it was alive, instead of looking boring.

Give Flowers According To Their Meaning

When you are going to be buying flowers for someone, the most important thing is thoughtfully considering the meaning behind the arrangement. There is no right or wrong way to give someone flowers. However, there are some flowers that tend to go with certain occasions, so if you want to be a bit more traditional, you should ponder the occasion before choosing your arrangement. This article will educate you on some of the flowers that may be best suited for specific occasions.

Roses for special occasions

Roses can be a great choice for special occasions, such as anniversaries, Mother's Day, birthdays, weddings or as a show of sympathy. The color of the rose can also help you to get your point across in a special way.

Red roses: Red roses are the flowers that are most associated with love. This is why they tend to be a popular choice for anniversaries, Valentine's Day and other romantic moments. If choosing red roses as a romantic gesture, it's best to go with long-stemmed roses that don't have the thorns.

Yellow roses: Yellow roses are thought to be a sign of friendship. Therefore, many people tend to include them in flower arrangements they are giving to dear friends.

Pale pink roses: Pale pink roses are most associated with showing an expression of sympathy. This makes them a good choice if you are sending roses to someone who has recently lost a loved one or gone through another type of tragedy.

Mixed colors: A bouquet of roses in different colors can be a good choice for special occasions such as birthdays, graduations, congratulations and get-well-soon wishes.

Give flowers according to birthdate

If you are giving someone a bouquet of flowers for their birthday, you can include the flowers that represent their birth month.

January: The carnation is the flower for January.

February: The flower for February is the Violet.

March: The flower that represents March is the Daffodil.

April: The Daisy is April's flower.

May: May's flower is the Lily.

June: The rose is the flower that represents the month of June.

July: July's flower is the Larkspur.

August: The Gladiolus is the flower for August.
