This flower comes in a variety of different shapes, sizes and colors. With over 100 genuses in the Liliaceae family there is much to learn!

Origins and Symbolism
Lilies are native to the Northern Hemisphere in Asia, Europe and North America. In the Victorian Era lilies earned the meaning “majesty,” due to their unique shape and long-time association with the Virgin Mary. People during this era would wear lilies in their hair and pinned to evening gowns.

The lily symbolizes purity and refined beauty. Each color of the lily though represents a different meaning. White lilies symbolize purity and modesty, orange lilies symbolize passion, and pink lilies symbolize wealth and prosperity.

Card Messages: June 2015

 

It is often that we find ourselves unable to transcribe feelings. It is easier to let others know the way we feel with actions rather than written words. If this is the case for you, below are a few things to say for different occasions in June.

Birthday Wishes

For Mom: You are the sunshine that brightens our lives. The light that shows us the way. Happy Birthday Mom!

For Dad: Mom is the core of the flower, we are the petals and you are the stem. Always supporting and providing our needs with the most loving care. Happy Birthday Dad!

For a Friend: A year older, a year wiser! Happy Birthday!

Wedding Notes

To Both: New beginnings are always good, especially when that new beginning is the one you love. Congratulations!

For Her: Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness with the luckiest man in the world!

For Him: Some people spend their entire lives looking for love. Today, you are forever with yours. Congratulations!

Sympathy Thoughts

This is the beginning of immortality for she/he will forever live in our hearts.

Let the joyful moments of yesterday be a reason for smiling today, tomorrow and always.

Thinking about sending flowers? Head to your local florist and use one of the messages above. Let the lovely people in your life know how much you care!

 

 

5 Reasons To Send Flowers: June ’15

June is the sixth month of the year and the first month of summer–one of the most anticipated seasons! This month, not only do we celebrate the beginning of summer, but many other very special occasions too. Here is a list of five reasons to celebrate and send flowers in June!

1. Best Friends Day – June 8th

We all have friends but only a handful of those friends fit in the category of “best friends”. Our besties are always there to console us when we need it most. A yellow rose represents friendship and nothing surprises a friend more than a bouquet of yellow roses to represent such an incredible bond.

2. Red Rose Day – June 12th

A red rose is most known for representing love and romance, but also respect, courage and beauty. To this day, the red rose has kept its meaning and continues to delight us with its beautiful petals and aroma. A single-stemmed red rose is more than enough to remind the special people in your life how truly loved they are.

3. Smile Power Day – June 15th

A smile has the power to transform our day in just a matter of seconds. Sometimes a coworker or a friend needs a little pick-me-up. A bright bouquet of flowers, such as gerbers, are sure to turn any frown upside down!

4. Father’s Day – June 21st

Father’s day is an important holiday in June. It’s always meaningful to thank our father’s for all their hard work. We never really think about sending men flowers, but why not? Maybe not roses, but exotic flowers that are more masculine in a linear or natural design makes for a great gift. Not too sure about sending him flowers? Go for a plant such as a bonsai or bamboo–great for the office!

5.Hug Holiday Day – June 29th

This holiday was created by Hugs for Health Foundation to remind us of hugging those in need of cheer and love. Today, along with flowers, go to the nearest hospice, hospital or just walk down the street and give love to those in need.

If you are thinking about sending flowers, for any occasion, contact your local florist and ask for their professional advice. Don’t know what flowers to choose? A “designer’s choice” arrangement is always the best option. Your florist will make something beautiful for your loved one!
