The Power of Flowers: Why Flowers Are The Finest Gift For Any Occasion

Lifestyle

Flowers are universally, the perfect gift for any occasion because they generally defy cultural boundries. You can send them to anyone--from a significant other, to a coworker or an acquaintance. They provide comfort in a time of sorrow, but can also be an expression of thankfulness, happiness, desire, and love in other situations.

One can say so much with a simple flower arrangement or bouquet. In fact, some flowers themselves have significant meanings. It is commonly known across the world that red roses mean, “I love you”, but some lesser known, and quite interesting connotations are that pairing red and white roses in an arrangement together is a symbol of unity and peach roses signify appreciation. (Fitting for National Boss’ Day or Secretaries Day.)

Flowers are used to stir up emotions in people in all types of situations. Dealing with the loss of a loved one is not easy. Although it will not erase all of the sadness a person may be going through, flowers have the ability to bring comfort and touch the hearts of the late loved one’s family. Sending a new coworker a small arrangement of sunflowers or gerbera daisies for their desk as a “Welcome to the office.” token of appreciation is always a nice gesture. One can send their significant other a tall and extravagant arrangement such as Erato ($245 at Plantshed.com) to show them just how much you love them. (Or just how remorseful you are.) Flowers can be as personal or impersonal as you want them to be.

Floral arrangements brighten up any home, commercial, or office space. They make a room feel complete. Flowers, albeit temporary, provide warmth and smiles for as long as they are around.
