How to Pick Perfect Flowers According to Occasions

Life is beautiful. There're so much in life to cherish and celebrate - birth of a baby, graduation, wedding, anniversary, Valentine's day, Mother's day and Christmas. Flowers are loved by both men and women for their beauty, purity and freshness.

Valentine's flowers are about love and passion if you pick roses. Consider a sunflower for the person in your life. The meaning of this Valentine's Day flower is admiration. Your special someone will feel adored by you all day long. How about a For-get-me not? This flower means true love. You could not say it any better. A tulip given on Valentine's Day has a meaning of the perfect lover. Now that is a desired compliment.

The meaning of mother's day flowers is said best with pink carnations as these flowers say, "I will never forget you" and they represent a mother's love. While carnations are a popular choice for mom on her special day, they are not the only choice. Think about your mom and what she likes. The meaning of mother's day flowers is to show mom that you took time out of your day to think about her so choose flower arrangements that suit her best.

Christmas flower gifts have special meanings for Christmas celebration. In a story about the birth of Jesus Christ, it was flowers from two little poor children that outshone all the gifts that three wise men had brought for Him.

Birthday flowers are chosen according to different months of the year, much like birthstones. January is the snowdrop and carnation; February the primrose and violet; March the violet and jonquil; April flowers are the daisy and sweet pea; May represents lily of the valley and hawthorn; June is the rose and honeysuckle; July the water lily and larkspur; August represents the gladiolus and poppy; September the Morning Glory and Aster; October the Marigold; November, chrysanthemum; and December birthday's the Poinsettia and Holly. Remember, the monthly guide to flowers provides a basis for picking out flowers for a man or a woman, but other flowers are appropriate as well depending on whether you are buying them for a family member or the love of your life.

Wedding lowers should be chosen according to the bride and groom preferences, color of the bride and bridesmaids' dresses, church and reception places, and sticking to the decoration theme, if any. Another point to consider is the season because most floral varieties are easily found year-round, but seasonal flowers are cheaper and easier to find. Fresh flowers are the most viable option when it comes to planning the wedding day, but a few brides prefer dried flowers or artificial ones made of silk.

The Internet opened a new and convenient way for people to send flowers. Valentine's Day 2002, Carole was in Cornwall, UK and her boyfriend Vic was in Guildford, UK. Vic decided to head to the internet. Typing in flower delivery Cornwall, then florists in Guildford, Vic found the perfect Valentine's flowers for Carole. The flowers can be ordered online from Guildford, UK and sent to Cornwall, UK and would arrive early next morning. They enjoyed the experience of florists in Devon for flower delivery as well.
