Christmas is a time of great cheer, sharing and caring; it is a time of hope and faith. Apart from enjoying serene church visits, scrumptious lunches and splendid parties, people also look forward to gifts. You may have thought of all kinds of presents until now, but never given a thought to forwarding a Christmas flower gift, have you? Well, you may do so now. Take the help of a local or online florist to create the perfect bouquet on your behalf.
- White, red and green have always been the favourite colour themes of Christmas. Purple has joined the group in contemporary times. All these hues may be combined in their varied shades to create unique and stunning bouquets.
- There are literally hundreds of flowers on this planet, which can leave you a little confused about choosing the right ones for this festive day. Nevertheless, you would do well to stick with beautiful combinations of rose, chrysanthemum, orchid, poinsettia, tulip, lisianthus, gerbera, carnation, sereneta, iris, alstroemeria, lily, or amaryllis.
- Cut to perfection, these flowers should make for a majestically glorious bouquet, when wrapped in cellophane paper.
- Alternatively, you may have them arranged on a special base, again in the form of a bouquet. This base could be a basket, a brightly-coloured vase, a special mug, or a ceramic pot. Let your imagination soar; see what you can come up with.
- If you would like to adhere to a single flowering plant, present your choice as a potted plant. You may opt for reindeer fern, miniature Christmas tree, hyacinth, miniature rose, poinsettia, lily or gerbera.
In case, you enjoy being innovative, there are some unusual things that you can attempt.
- Snow is synonymous with Christmas. Therefore, obtain an artificial snow-topped house. Let it nestle amidst a breathtaking arrangement of radiantly-coloured flowers of all types. Now, tie an attractive, silk bow around the whole thing.
- Then again, take a glass bowl and place a large, coloured, taper candle within it. Place pine cones, red flowers, red berries, holiday greenery, and the like around it. A silver bow should go around the bowl, giving the impression that it is holding all the flowers and greenery in place. Alternatively, you may create a bouquet within the bowl, around the candle; place the bow around it. When the candle is lighted, the whole of nature becomes illuminated.
- The gaps between the cut flowers within the bouquet may be filled with colourful Christmas balls, tiny snowmen, miniature reindeer, colourful ribbons, pine cones, miniature snowflakes, greenery, thistle and silver twigs, and so on. For greenery, you may choose cedar, holly, pine, rough juniper, fern leaves, boxwood, or noble fir. Your gift may be large or small; the recipient will definitely feel a lifting of the spirit.
There can really be no end to your creativity as far as creating flower gifts are concerned. They are easy to personalize and customize. Just let the florist know your specifications, and he/she will do the needful.
