The art of giving flowers has long been used by many cultures to not only brighten someone’s day but also to convey a certain message or emotion with its strong sense of symbolism. Since then, flowers have been the ultimate go-to gifts to commemorate a variety of occasions.
Here at Fav Florist, we believe in continuing that tradition of flower giving with a modern yet minimalist approach. With our extensive range of flowers readily available online, which one should you choose to liven up a special occasion? We have you covered with this blog.
How to Choose the Right Fresh Flower Bouquet?
Choosing a bouquet should not be a terrifying experience. After all, you are choosing a bouquet to liven up an occasion. But choosing the right bouquet of fresh flowers requires much thought and consideration.
This is especially so since flowers help trigger specific emotions. Therefore, choosing a fresh flower bouquet based on not only your preferences but also its innate symbolism and the significance of the occasion are factors that need to be considered. To help you choose the most appropriate bouquet, consider the following factors:
1. The Language of Flowers
You need to understand the significance of the occasion and gift the appropriate flowers. Since ancient times, people have been leveraging the ‘Language of the Flowers’ in order to convey their message in a silent yet effective way. You too can refer to this “language” when selecting flower bouquets online or in-store.
The ‘Language of Flowers’ emphasises that each flower and its respective colours have different meanings. Since each flower has its own unique hidden meaning, take the time to research and understand the message that they naturally convey – that way, you’ll be able to appropriately liven up the occasion rather than accidentally deliver the wrong message.
2. Get the Timing Right
Chocolates, personalised mugs, and other safe gifts are often the ultimate go-to when one has run out of ideas – and the same can be said about flowers. Commonly gifted to someone during occasions such as birthdays, graduation or wedding anniversary, it is important to get the timing right if you would like to transform a traditional fresh flower bouquet into something that will undoubtedly impress your recipient. You can either plan for a surprise delivery to your recipient’s doorstep or self-collect your customised bouquet from the florist and hand it to your recipient when the time is right.
Picking the Right Flower Arrangement for an Occasion
Once you’ve decided on the types of flowers that will convey your heartfelt emotions and picked a time to gift your recipient, the final step is to pick the right type of floral arrangement. While fresh flower bouquets never fail in brightening up and bringing joy to an occasion, there is no denying that navigating through the different kinds of bouquet options can get overwhelming, especially when there are options that are seemingly fitting for any and every celebration. You can choose everything from a rose bouquet to a hand bouquet or even a bloom box to gift a loved one on occasions like their birthdays or simply to add some colour to a room. To choose the right flowers for different occasions, consider these options made available by Fav Florist:
1. Intimate Dinner with Your Loved Ones
Hosting an intimate dinner with your loved one? Whether it’s Valentine’s Day or your fifth wedding anniversary, having a bouquet of flowers on the table will elevate the visual appeal of your dining table setup. If you are looking for a bloom box to brighten up the dining table, a Surprise Table Arrangement makes for the perfect decorative element while you’re enjoying a meal with your partner. This bloom box features 3 main flowers such as roses and carnations which both symbolise love, passion and fascination. The bloom box is also surrounded by filler flowers and green fillers acting as a centrepiece that is sure to impress and add some colour to the occasion.
2. A Romantic Date
While bloom boxes and vase arrangements are great for home settings, which type of floral arrangement should you opt for on your first date? Well, you can never go wrong with a classic bouquet of red roses! Believed to have been created by the Goddess of Love, Aphrodite, red roses are the perfect way to say ‘’I Love You’ when words aren’t enough. As such, a hand bouquet packed to the brim with red roses is always a popular choice, appreciated and beloved by all. Our Classic Love – Rose Bouquet features farm-fresh roses that are delicately wrapped with a ribbon. Passionately handcrafted by our florists, simply throw in a personalised message card, and you’ll have yourself a date that’ll surely be swept off their feet.
Birthdays are always tricky when it comes to gift giving. From deciding on what the birthday boy or girl would truly want to determining a budget that will not break your bank, many things have to be thought about. Why not take the stress away with a bouquet of fresh flowers? While they are indeed a safe choice for those who can’t come to a decision, handing your loved one a hand bouquet on their birthday makes for a sentimental gesture.
Roses, sunflowers and orchids are some of the most beautiful flowers perfect for a birthday bouquet. Birthday bouquets like the Galaxy Mini Bouquet and Eternal Love – Hydrangea Bouquet are not only brilliant choices for birthdays but are sure to liven up the celebration by being the ultimate showstopper.
4. Big Life Milestones
Reaching every milestone is in and of itself a special occasion, but what if we told you that flowers can do wonders in adding more spark to the celebration? Whether a friend just graduated from university and is moving on to their next chapter in life or a family member just got promoted, you can surely plan a graduation day celebration with flowers or simply send them a fresh flower bouquet. Since purple flowers symbolise success, why not get a hydrangea bouquet like the Spring Delight – Hydrangea Bouquet? Handcrafted with purple, pink, and blue hydrangeas, this hand bouquet not only radiates abundance, harmony and peace but is also an accurate representation of gratitude, grace, and beauty.
