Also referred to as the Lunar New Year, this traditional Chinese holiday is marked by bright red decor, big feasts, offerings to the spirits, and cleaning house to make way for good luck in the new year. Help someone near and dear to you celebrate good fortune and happiness with a bright Asian-inspired bouquet! Send flowers for their reunion dinner or as a wish for good luck in the coming year.
This is the month everyone is trying to start off on the right foot. To be healthier and more active is typically on the top of each list. But making new habits and ditching bad ones is really challenging. You can help support friends as they seek their goals. Trying to cut back on office snacking? Send some beautiful flowers that will provide extra encouragement all week long. Someone wanting to make healthier choices? A fruit basket is a perfect pick-me-up. Empower others to succeed and you’ll be inspired to stick to your own goals!
You gotta love nature for creating flowers that are designed to bloom even in the gloomy cold seasons.
