Flowers for all sorts of occasions

Throughout the course of every year, we are faced with a number of occasions – both happy and not so happy. We send flowers for many occasions including birthdays, anniversaries, and even when we want to offer our condolences. Flowers offer comfort and they bring the recipient plenty of joy too.

Brightly coloured flowers are usually the top choice when it comes to occasions like birthdays and when welcoming a new baby. The colour scheme of the bouquet will usually depend on the occasion and the recipient. For example, if you are welcoming a baby boy, you might want to opt for a blue bouquet whereas a pink bunch of flowers is perfect for a baby girl.

Red flowers like roses, tulips, and carnations are great for romantic occasions like Valentine’s Day and anniversaries. Red flowers are associated with the deepest form of love and affection. This is why they are perfect for the one you love.

Sympathy flowers are usually understated in their beauty. White and green arrangements are popular but some, more colourful arrangements have also become popular over the years. What some people might not realise is the fact that we don’t only mourn our lost loved ones for a few days, weeks, or months. When certain special occasions roll around or when the anniversary of their passing arrives, you will most likely feel the need to honour them. This is why so many people choose to visit the gravesite and place a fresh bouquet or wreath on the grave.

If your loved one was cremated and the ashes were scattered, you might like to visit this special place and scatter flower petals or place a wreath in this spot. If you still have the ashes, you can place a bouquet beside the ashes and possibly light a candle while remembering your loved one.

Since there are so many different flowers and beautiful flower arrangement options out there, it can sometimes feel overwhelming when you need to choose the perfect bunch. If you are ever in doubt, you can always rely on your professional florist for expert advice.
