Floral arrangements are more than just a pretty centerpiece on a table. They can be used to express sympathy, thanks, love, joy, or passion in a way that not many other gifts can.
People have floral arrangement made for funerals and send flowers for celebrations like birthdays, anniversaries, or Mother’ s Day. Flowers can also be sent to say get well, to say I’m sorry, or I love you.
Floral arrangements at funerals, whether it is a floral cross wreath, casket cover, or floral basket, are a way for family and friends to show their love, respect, and friendship for the deceased and their family.
Colors and Shades
The colors chosen for the arrangement may be serious to show sympathy or respect, or brightly colored to serve as a reminder of the person’s lifetime. Flowers at funerals help say what is sometimes hard to express in words, and make the service less dreary. Many people put arrangements on gravesides in memory of the deceased every Memorial Day.
The most-used wedding flowers are roses, even though modern brides are beginning to use sunflowers or other different flowers in their floral arrangements. When choosing floral arrangements for a wedding, the major considerations should be the style, colors, season, and cost.
The colors of flowers need to match the bridesmaids dresses, and they need to match the style of the wedding, whether it is indoor, outdoor, formal, or informal.
Also make sure whatever flowers chosen are in season at the time, not only with they look fresher but they are not as expensive. Keep the costs in mind as well, flowers are needed for: the ceremony, the reception, corsages, hair ornaments, buttonholes, and bouquets.
The Perfect Bloom
No matter what the floral arrangement is for, you want to make sure and pick the right type of flowers. It helps to know what’s popular, but you need to know what different flowers symbolize before you can pick out the perfect kind. Every type has its own meaning and has been used to symbolize many things throughout history.
For instance, the rose began as a symbol of joy, then changed to secrecy and silence, and today gives the impression of love and romance. Lilies are used for weddings and funerals because they are symbols of beauty, purity, and innocence. Irises symbolize friendship, faith, and help, and come in many fabulous colors.
A floral arrangement is an excellent way to decorate or show someone your true feelings. Weddings, funerals, birthdays, anniversaries, and Valentine’s Day are a few occasions that might call for a floral arrangement. So next time you have something to say to someone, try saying it with flowers.
