 In this blog, let’s look at the the art of flower giving and receiving, discussing the significance behind different occasions, the emotions conveyed by various blooms, and some thoughtful tips to enhance your floral exchanges


Expressing Love and Romance:

Love and romance often find expression through flowers. Classic red roses have long been the traditional way to say ‘I love you’. In saying that I have noticed in our shop that red roses aren’t given quite as much as years gone by. This could be a cost thing or maybe just people are moving towards other flowers. Red roses have never been my personal fav but I DO love them mixed with some soft pinks!

Celebrating Milestones and Achievements:

 Be it a graduation, promotion, or anniversary, Flowers are the perfect way to say well done, I’m thinking of you, I love you or just because.



Offering Comfort and Support

 Expressing gratitude and bringing joy to others is one of the greatest pleasures in life. Giving some gorgeous  vibrant blooms and cheerful arrangements can brighten someone’s day, let them know you care and are thinking of them.

Traditionally white was the most common request for sympathy flowers however I think we’ve moved away from that. I find pastels are probably the most ordered flowers for sympathy at the moment.

  From small gestures to a stunning arrangement we can help you find inspiration to spread happiness and gratitude.


The Art of Receiving Flowers:

Receiving flowers is an experience in itself. One I might say I rarely experience. And yes florists DO love to receive flowers too !!!

 Learn about caring for your bouquet to ensure it stays fresh and vibrant for as long as possible, and consider repurposing the flowers to enjoy their beauty even after they’ve finished blooming.
