You would be hard pressed to find someone who didn’t like flowers nowadays. We love how they look and how they smell and how they can change the tone and appearance of a room just by being in a vase. Many of us visit the local park just so we can sit among them and we all try to grow them in our gardens with varying degrees of success. There are so many different kinds all around us around the world and in some countries like Thailand, they are a food source that is added into recipes and enjoyed like vegetables.
We frequently see them being used to celebrate important days in our lives and you will find that your local florist in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne is busy most days preparing flowers for such occasions. Depending on the type of flower that you want, the prices can vary from affordable to downright expensive. The rarer the flower or the more difficult they are to get to the UK, the more expensive they are. However, for a big day, money is not the issue and it’s the beauty and the colours that we crave. There are a number of occasions where flowers might be a prominent feature and we will look at some of those here.
- A wedding day is a great day for celebration and flowers are a very important and intrinsic part of that. The flower is used to create the bouquet for the bride to hold as she walks down the aisle and it is the one that she throws at the end of the ceremony for the next lucky bride to be. You will see flowers displayed on the altar in the church and along the pews where the bride and groom walk. At the celebration dinner, they will make up the centre pieces and they are everywhere to be seen throughout the whole day.
- A sad day for flowers is on the day of a funeral and they are used to create wreathes to present to the family that have lost a loved one. They can be shaped to convey certain messages of sadness and to show that we will miss someone. At the burial site, they are placed atop the casket and then on top of the grave. They provide beauty in a time of great sadness.
- Valentine’s Day is a time when flowers, especially roses, are everywhere. They are seen as a way of conveying or love for someone and we generally choose bright coloured flowers to do this. We also order flowers on birthdays, anniversaries and to say sorry and they are the go to thing when we are not quite sure what we want to say. We do know, however, that we can say it with flowers.
They look amazing, they smell fantastic and we have a plentiful supply of them in all the florists in the Newcastle-Upon-Tyne area. Tell someone that you are thinking about them by sending some flowers and watch their faces light up as they receive them. It will the smartest money that you have ever spent.
