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.

The Perfect Host Gift

Flowers make the perfect host gift. And when you use a local florist, you can be sure that your gift matches the theme of the occasion. Want flowers arranged using a shofar? If you provide the horn, your local florist can put together a wonderful design for you. And if you ask far enough in advance, they may be able to find a shofar so you don’t have to! Don’t show up empty-handed. Bring flowers!

The Perfect Decoration

Is there a better way to decorate your home for Rosh Hashana than with a floral accent? And when you use your local florist, you are sure to get flowers that contain all the traditional elements. Whether you’re looking for centerpieces for the table, a thematic arrangement for flavor or anything else that you might need, your corner flower shop is the place to go. They have the creativity to help you with ideas and the ability to meet and exceed your expectations.

Celebrate this Jewish New Year with flowers!

Happy New Year … with Flowers!

It’s almost time to ring in the new year!

Flowers and the New Year

With New Year’s Day fast approaching, you’re probably thinking about how you can structure things to start the year off in the best possible way. You’re picking out your resolution, deciding on the traditional menu items you want to prepare and getting everything ready for the party you’re throwing for loved ones. Make sure that in all the preparations you don’t forget a very important component to starting the new year off right. I’m talking about flowers of course!

Symbolizing Love and Happiness

Everything you do on New Year’s Day has meaning and often stands as a symbol for something larger than itself. Do you eat black-eyed peas and collard greens to ensure wealth and prosperity throughout the year? Maybe you eat pork and cabbage? Each of these traditional foods is consumed to symbolize blessing for the coming year. Shouldn’t flowers be part of your traditional celebration?

Flowers symbolize happiness and love, joy and friendship, embodying everything you want for your loved ones in the upcoming year. This New Year’s Day, make sure you make flowers part of your celebration!

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.

Ring In The New Year With Flowers

Your New Years Eve party is not complete with out a gorgeous bouquet of flowers. Flowers remind us of bright and happier times ahead, and will set your New Year off on the right foot! Choose a New Years flower arrangement to match your party theme, or go with the traditional New Years colors of silver and gold.

Circles are also a traditional New Years symbol, signifying the year has come full circle. Use this theme while planning your party decor and food. Hang up wreaths with fresh flowers, silver and gold ribbon. Stars are also a great symbol to use at New Years. For one, it’s a midnight celebration and what better represents night than stars? But also stars have traditionally symbolized guidance, and more recently hopes and wishes.

If you are attending a New Years Eve party, stop by your local florists and pick up a beautiful New Years themed centerpiece for your hostess. She will be tickled pink, and you will all reap the benefits of having fresh flowers at your New Years party.

So here at FSN we WISH you a HAPPY NEW YEAR! May the next year bring you happiness and fortune!
