Gentle and beautiful, flowers are the perfect statement in times of great significance. How graceful and elegant, as is the case when you see her. That trembling fear that embraces you and explodes with trickles of delight that roll down one’s countenance and temple of being. The corporal wonder that is only out shined by what magnificence consumes one’s soul. Had there only been words enough…but I love you…I love you does not satisfy all that dictates your existence, so splendorous around her, so enriched, so much power filling your whole universe.
A desire to disappear, that almost tragic impulse, to disappear so entirely into another until she is no longer an other at all. A hypnotic trance, a yoke that we willingly carry and love until it is part of us for an eternity. Until we are enveloped in blissful union – and yet…were you aware this can never be the case? That this flower has to be revived and tended to – that this satisfaction we seek is an eternal quest. A succulent journey that is a pleasure to go on, repeatedly, until exhaustion consumes one…then, then the whole process can repeat itself and once again the most divine of indulgences may commence.
This is the experience of her, this is what the story of the rose. Sweet, intricate, and delicate…it is the story of madness. The only madness that makes sense.

That is when they fully bloom. Check out this short video of Victoria’s Secret supermodel Adriana Lima describing how it is that her husband won her over.
Beginnings, to a certain extent, are absolutely crucial for a flourishing relationship. You must show your lover that she is important and worth everything, including your time and consideration. Think of how she would feel to enter a house filled with luscious roses..the outstanding gesture would be a moment to treasure for eternity and would quickly tell her some devastatingly attractive things about you.

Some people may be thinking that a red wedding can only pertain to the popular penultimate episode of Game Of Thrones’ third season, but red weddings are, in fact, a far more ancient tradition. Red? Yes, blood red. Red over any other color, especially white. You may be calling us crazy, but give the idea a moment of consideration. Why are white dresses the standard of weddings? A time of virginal purity being upheld, the serenity and perfection of white. White, which is not a color at all but the collection of all the colors of the spectrum. But it wasn’t always this way. All you need to do is go back to the days of Ancient Rome for a decadently red wedding.
Romans wore red wedding dresses because red is the color of passion, fire, and love. Burning romance was the value upheld over “white” purity. Not that you have to choose. But why settle for representing one symbolic face of marriage? Is not romance equally important? Commence your wedding with all the layers of complexity that life and relationships themselves contain, incorporate some vibrant reds in your wedding flowers! Declare love in the loudest of voices and blend ancient traditions into a swirl of rich meaning. The contract of marriage, being a most beautiful arrangement, should be given the upmost importance and care on this day. So plan carefully. We have some lovely suggestions. Whether it be red roses, carnations, or peonies, we have got your rich colors covered!
True love is the delicate and rare blossom of life. A gift to be blessed with, and something that requires upkeep to be maintained, to thrive and grow. Is it any surprise that we commemorate this rarity with flowers? The rich and beauteous gift of nature, an aesthetic wonder. The promise of what can come from cultivating the tender plant of love. But what is the flower that declares, that yells of this love from the top of its lungs like no other? Ortega y Gasset, the Spanish philosopher, said that when we’re in love, we refuse to imagine a world without the person whom we love. Without his or her existence, life itself is shattered.
Wedding flowers are more than just looks, your ambiance is carried by the choices you make. If picking a flower to represent immortal love, we have done some historic digging to find that any flower of a purple to deep red or burgundy color is highly symbolic of eternity. The unfading quality of true love is something so unique that if there was anything that deserved a celebration, it is undoubtedly it. Have flowers that are beautiful and deep with meaning, because that’s what true love is like. We ensure quality and would not have it any other way on this most important day.
One of the fascinating things about flowers is the multiplicity of meanings their colors and blooms can bear. They are the gift of antiquity, the great subject of art. One of the second greatest muses (since women are the first). And even in the subject of flowers and women, they always seem to describe one another. Artists and poets of all sorts seem to agree that the flower touches some sort of perfection worth reflecting and attempting to capture. The delicate bulb of petals strung together that mysteriously open into a gloriously sensual experience. Look in our art and you will see them there, saying something to you, so alluring they are irresistible. Why have we chose to make them such a part of our lives? It is much more than utilitarian, nothing like how we have chosen horses or certain crops because we found them useful to sustain us.
Or is it perhaps that flowers do sustain us? Yet in the way that is more than practical, the way that fills us with poetry and light and adds true substance. Sometimes we abuse them, use them to silence others or to assuage them. But even that misuse of flowers speaks to their great power of seduction. Give a rose and know the magnitude held in this seemingly small gesture. You hold ancient wisdom, the force of humanity, perfection at a mere glance. This sweet scent. The enormity of what bountiful richness our world exudes. Allow flowers to say it all, it does not matter the occasion (birthdays, anniversaries, relationships of all sorts), there is a flower that will say it all and more.
Glittering, glowing, and sparkling table centerpieces can truly add to the aesthetic wow-factor at events. One exciting way to bring extra brightness is to garnish gorgeous flower arrangements with votive candles besides them. For a wedding that will dazzle guests beyond words, consider creative ways to make your table centerpieces be unforgettable. Besides a towering vase of vibrant and fragrant lilies, little creamy colored votive candles will be like the visual equivalent of hearing a chorus of angles sing on Christmas eve in the background. That small touch that makes everything magical. Not that flowers need any help, but trying something different with them will certainly be something to talk about. It is also a highly affordable way to make sure your engagement, function, or fundraiser has a lot of glitz and glam.
Imagine a lush arrangement of deep-red roses paired besides a clear ornate bowl filled with floating votive candles that dance as their lights pass by each other like ships. Those orbs of light will bounce off the rich color of the flowers to create an image that is quite special.
For a more down-to-earth look, you may make a holder for a votive candle out of an orange. Fruit in vases already makes for a stunning arrangement, a glowing orange globe besides some creamy white flowers would make for something astonishingly beautiful that has a light summer freshness as well. There are many ways to create centerpieces that are stunning, the flowers take the stage but why not add a little back up?
Sometimes, it takes being on the receiving end of a gift to understand its significance. Especially for those short of imagination. However, there is one gift that suits givers of all sorts for whether you wish to access creative banks or choose simplicity, a stunning result is possible either way. That is, of course, the gift of flowers. Here is an example: coming back from a trip you cannot help but glance at all the knick-knacks in the souvenir shops but no matter how many snow globes, t-shirts, and refrigerator magnets you consider purchasing, nothing quite says “I missed you.” These things seem transient in a superficial way. But if you were to send a bouquet of flowers, the flourishing life they possess would transfer into the sentiments of its receiver. It is that extra step that shows the thought and consideration of someone who truly cares.
Your daughter has just finished her final performance of the play she’s been working on at school for months, she has poured so much time and effort into this. What better reward than fresh cut flowers? Your mother has worked so hard to help you with so many things, taking from her valuable time — does not the bouquet show the sincerest of attitudes?
Your son has just returned from his studies away from home, would not some gorgeous yellow roses give the warmest of welcomes?
A bouquet gives a wealthy breath of freshness into a space and into other’s lives. So if you are ever unsure of where to begin in order to convey heart-warming feelings, make a floral consideration…you are sure to make someone’s (including yours) day.
