5 Best Reasons To Send Flowers In January ’15

January is all about moving beyond the previous year and striding forward with a clean slate. It’s appropriate that snow blankets the world at this time of year. As if Mother Nature is reflecting our sentiments with a visual display. But even in snow you can find flowers, and is there any better way to start a new year than with a bouquet of natural beauty?

Let’s find out all the reasons to send flowers this January!

#1 – New Year’s Day – Jan. 1st

A Beautiful SightIt’s the first day of a new year! Is there any better time to give someone the gift of flowers? Beautiful blooms will convey the love you feel as well as help put a smile on your loved one’s face. And since this day is supposed to be a reflection of what you’ll do all year, who wouldn’t want to always have a handful of fresh flowers?

#2 – Houseplant Appreciation Day – Jan. 10th

A day to appreciate your houseplants? It sounds crazy, but it’s true! If there was ever a better day to give someone a living plant, I certainly don’t know what it would be. Give someone the joy of a lovely plant to keep them company in their office, garage or anywhere else they may be. Plants clean the air and just look fantastic. Everybody deserves one!

#3 – Martin Luther King Jr. Day – Jan. 19th

Bright Winter SkyA great day to celebrate a great man who struggled to bring peace and equality into a harsh world. Give your friends and loved ones the gift of flowers and a reminder of the honor this day is owed.

#4 – January Birthdays

Birthdays are a great time to receive flowers and plants. Flowers are gorgeous and help make any day brighter while plants will be cherished and cared about for years. Talk about the gift that keeps on giving!

#5 – Beat the Winter Blues

Wonderful WhiteSnow is beautiful, but sometimes all that endless white can start to grate on the nerves. That’s the perfect time to contact your local florist and order up some tropical blooms or other colorful arrangement to break the monotony of winter with a splash of spring!

You never need a reason to buy flowers. They’re great anytime! But it never hurts to have a reminder of all the great things flowers are good for.

Let Flowers Symbolize Your New Year Resolutions

Flower Symbols

With a brand new year on the horizon, we’ve all started thinking about what we can do to make it better than the previous. We all have good intentions when creating New Years’ resolutions, however, most of us never follow through. Why? We tend to make a lot of promises to ourselves we can’t keep — Loose 20 lbs; stop smoking; read a book every month. While these are great goals to have, it can be extremely overwhelming to start these all at once on January 1st.

How To Keep Those New Year’s Resolutions

Choose New Year’s resolutions that aren’t as hard to keep. Instead, make goals to yourself that are broad, fit into your routine and are also fun to do! Instead of focusing on drastically changing your habits, choose resolutions to enhance those aspects of your lifestyle.

Let Flowers Symbolize Your New Year

Each flower has a meaning that dates back as far as Victorian times. These meanings symbolize anything from ‘love’ to ‘wealth & prosperity.’ This New Years, let flowers symbolize what you want 2013 to mean to you. Symbolic flowers with specific meanings will help you visualize and empower your goals. Order flowers for yourself or to decorate your home for the new year, make it a new tradition. Use the flower meanings tool to find symbols of exactly what you want your new year to be for you and your family.

Year Of The Dragon: Welcome 2012

2012 Year of the Dragon

The Chinese New Year is the most celebrated event in Chinese culture. This Year, Chinese New Year starts on January 23rd and lasts 15 days. The festivities end on the 15th day with the Lantern Festival, a celebration of light.

The Chinese calendar is lunar based, so this holiday is often called the Lunar New Year. Chinese New Year’s Eve is known as chú xī (除夕). It literally means “Year-pass Eve,” and is also a festive time just like the New Years Eve we have in the States. 2012 is the year of the dragon according to the Chinese Zodiac.

Chinese dragons are legendary creatures in Chinese mythology and folklore. In contrast to the ‘evil’ European dragons, Chinese dragons traditionally symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, hurricane, and floods. The dragon is also a symbol of power, strength, and good luck. With this, the Emperor of China usually uses the dragon as a symbol of his imperial power.

Means Dragon.

Red is also very important to the Chinese New Year because of it’s legendary ability to fight off evil. If you’re throwing a Chinese New Year party, use lots of red decorations. Yellow and gold decorations are also used for this celebration because it symbolizes luck and prosperity. A beautiful and easy way to decorate for Chinese New Year is with flowers! Order a variety of unique flowers in bright red and yellow with gold ribbon.
