Flower Ornaments & Wreaths for Christmas

Who doesn’t love decorating for the holidays! Strolling through town in the cool air, with lights everywhere just gets you right in the spirit. At home, most like to decorate the Christmas tree with all of their favorite ornaments. To switch it up a bit, they may even go a little crazy by using colored lights instead of the white lights from year before. How about something new though?

Consider a creative spin from the bridal bouquet balls that hang from ribbon, by decorating with fresh flowers! Adult pomanders or kissing balls is what they are often called, and a miniature version of these truly makes a fashion statement and a fantastic ornament! Have the flower shop design with red roses for instance, chrysanthemums, carnations or even holly, depending on your style. For fun, to add even more personality, these of course can hang from any type of ribbon or beads you desire! String them across your favorite window, hang them from the mantle, add them into the tree, or even mix them into your centerpiece table arrangement on Christmas day. These will have your friends & family smitten.

Flower wreaths need not be forgotten, as they are just as visually stunning as any other Christmas decoration. Who says these can only be used at weddings, to hang on trees &  reception doors. Would you not rather spend the money with your florist to enjoy them for the holiday season as opposed to just one day wedding day? Red roses & poinsettias are undoubtedly the favorites, but there are many flower combinations that lend themselves to this idea. Here is a blog that has several beautiful flower wreaths: http://thefrenchsampler.blogspot.com/2010/12/christmas-flowers.html Fresh flower wreaths are great to hang on your front door or dining room area, and are especially great over the headboard of your bed.

Flowers for Thanksgiving


The winter holidays are right around the corner, and it is time to start thinking about how to make this Thanksgiving just a little more special than the last. As we gather together in fellowship, like the Pilgrims first did, we give thanks to God for his many blessings.

A warm, inviting environment is a sure way to encourage great conversation and laughter! An elegant table setting with a mixture of a few staple items from the cupboard will do quite well, so no need to go out and spend a fortune. Mix and match plates and linens into your design until you get a nice color palette. Then layer in some fresh flowers from your florist for an extra special touch.

Arrangements with orange roses, red berries and mums will look fabulous, and be sure to keep them low on the table so guests can still see each  other. Flower shops can also do individual arrangements at each person’s seat which will also be fun, as an alternative to  doing centerpiece arrangements. That way each person can have flowers to take home with them! To view even more ideas, take a look at this website http://designtrendsblog.com/thanksgiving-table-setting-and-centerpiece-ideas-229

Friends and family will feel so welcome and loved by your extra effort. Just add in and an abundance of food, a nice toasty fire and everyone will be well on their way to a very memorable Thanksgiving!

The Meaning of the Yellow Rose: Friendship

 

Yellow roses have a variety of pleasant meanings. In Victorian times, yellow roses symbolized jealousy, but today these sun-filled blossoms symbolize friendship, affection and joy. Their cheerful appearance is appropriate for a variety of occasions. Yellow roses are often used in congratulations to express joy and pride in their achievement, like for weddings, graduations, and new mothers. Messages of goodwill, like “Thank You” and “Welcome Back” are also used.

In relationships, if you are thinking about giving yellow roses, keep in mind that their significant meaning is friendship. It would not be a great idea to have your florist send yellow roses, without much thought, to someone that you have romantic feelings for. Likewise, if you receive yellow roses, the sender is keen on friendship alone. Here, you will not find the heat of passion & love, only the warmth of a genuine and sincere smile. Because they also indicate a desire for freedom, if your significant other is sending you yellow roses, they might be giving you a subtle hint.

Another truly wonderful meaning of a yellow rose is that it indicates a determination to start over new and to begin fresh. If a misunderstanding or quarrel has disrupted any relationship, it can be mended and set right with yellow roses, by saying “Let’s put it all behind us and start a fresh page.”

Meanings of the Yellow Rose Include:  Joy, Gladness, Friendship, Delight, Warmth, Commitment, Sympathy, Promise of a New Beginning, Congratulations, Thank You, Welcome Back, Jealousy, Desire for Freedom.
