Gift bagged flowers for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day flowers can be presented in so many wonderful ways. They can be arranged in an elegant vase, hand tied and wrapped in decorative paper, displayed in baskets, or even in decorative gift bags! Yes, flowers can be presented in gift bags! There are, however, a few things you will need to remember if you choose this type of presentation.

Firstly, the stems of the flowers will need to be cut to the appropriate length. This will depend on the size of the bag. The taller the bag, the longer the stems can be. However, a tall bag does not look quite as visually appealing as a shorter, almost square-shaped bag. So keep the overall shape in mind when choosing the bag.

Secondly, you will need to decide if you are simply using the bag to deliver the flowers or if they are to be displayed as is – inside the bag. If they are only being delivered in the bag, then you should place some kind of absorbent material in the bottom of the bag. When you are ready to make the flower delivery, remove the flowers from their bucket or vase of water and place them in the bag. As soon as they are delivered, mum will need to put them in water. Alternatively, you could arrange the flowers in some saturated floral foam before placing them in the bag. In this case, the flowers will remain in the bag and, because of the wet foam, you will need to use a plastic drip tray inside the bag. If you don’t place the wet foam on a tray, it will soak the bag and wet the surface on which the arrangement is displayed.

Finally, don’t forget to choose a bag to suit the occasion. A bag with a floral theme might be acceptable but, in most cases, it’s better to choose a monotone bag. Make sure that you select a colour that will complement the colours of the flowers. The bag should not be the same colour as any of the flowers but rather a few shades lighter or darker for that perfect contrast. So, for example, if you order a bunch of pink flowers, your bag should either be dark pink or light pink – depending on the shade of pink used in the bouquet. If you are ever in doubt, a green bag or white bag are usually safe options. Just make sure that you choose the right shade of green – one that resembles foliage and not an artificial-looking colour. You want your bag to look like a natural extension of the flowers.
