Special occasions require special gifts. No matter if it’s your anniversary, Mother’s day or Valentines Day, getting a handmade bouquet from a Wollongong florist is sure to impress. Individual flowers have their own meanings, and making sure you send the right flower is incredibly important. If you want to charm your partner, an arrangement of roses, stock and tulips will send a message of lasting beauty and love. Whereas a flower arrangement of iris and alstroemeria’s will convey your compliments and friendship instead. Deciding on the right type of bouquet is the first step to sending the right message. Colours can change the meaning of a flower. If you’re looking to send a bouquet for mother’s day, pink roses, orchids, lilies or hydrangeas are the perfect choice. Local florists will have gorgeous premade arrangements available for the occasion, or you can get one hand-made for the mother in your life. Yellow flowers represent hope, joy, energy and optimism, making them the perfect gift for encouragement or to express good-luck. Yellow calla lilies, daffodils and tulips make great additions to a bouquet for a bride on her wedding day or to encourage a friend on their first day of work. If you want to express your love, passion and desire for your partner, talk to your florist about their selection of red roses, tulips and carnations. Traditionally symbolising love, red flowers are perfect for the romantic occasion and are a
great way to celebrate your relationship. Purity, innocence and loyalty. A floral arrangement of white gardenias and daisies is an elegant gift for a bridal party or flower girl at a wedding. Combine them with another colour, like red or yellow, and they become the perfect arrangement for a spouse or partner. One of the biggest occasions for flowers is your wedding day. A floral arrangement to match the theme and setting of your big day is important. There are a number of flowers that are commonly used at weddings and your florist will be able to cater to your needs. Making that day even more special. While there are a number of popular wedding flowers and arrangements, roses and tulips are probably the most common. Roses have long symbolised love and beauty, and they are a common gift for all occasions. They come in a variety of colours so getting the perfect rose arrangement is easier than ever. Tulips are a slightly more exotic approach with delicate creams and whites, gorgeous pastels of pink, yellow and peach, or vibrant red and purple. Dutch, French and parrot tulips all offer different styles so your florist can make the arrangement to your tastes and budget. As a way to congratulate and celebrate or to express grief and loss, flowers can express powerful emotions in a simple gesture. Beautiful bouquets and elegant arrangements will say more than words ever could.
