Choosing the Right Flower Color

Across the ages, many cultures placed heavy importance on the symbolism of flowers. As early as ancient times, flower species were associated with specific gods and presented to them as gifts and sacrifices. It wasn’t until Victorian times that flower color was important as well. In that time, flowers were popular in sending secret messages, especially romantic messages to someone you secretly admired. The color shade of the flowers symbolized the intensity of the message or emotion the flower stood for.

In modern times, flower color is usually more important than the secret messages symbolized in flower types. Many modern flowers are even genetically modified or dyed to a specific color, so you’ll be able to get the perfect flower color! Follow these guidelines for the perfect color choice:

Memorial Day Flowers Boise

Selecting Memorial Day Flowers

By: Karli Willden

Remembering the Fallen

Veterans of the armed forces have made significant contributions to the liberties and freedoms in America. Memorial Day is honored each year to honor those fallen while protecting our freedom. Started during the Civil War by southern women, the country adopted this tradition to honor all who  fought in any American war. Previously known as “Decoration Day,” it is still practiced today, often by decorating the graves of fallen soldiers.

In decorating the graves of the fallen, we recognize their individual sacrifices and show sympathy to the families of the fallen. The living also receive flowers to show appreciation for their contributions to this great nation.

Choosing Memorial Day Flowers

If you are planning on ordering flowers to place on the graves of the fallen, you may be wondering which flowers arrangements to get. While there is no declared Memorial Day flower, old poems written about the battlefields in Belgium do mention red poppies. These poppies grew in between graves of the fallen soldiers, and soon became associated with the holiday, as they symbolized the blood shed for freedom.

When buying flowers for Memorial Day graves, however, you can choose from a wide variety of patriotic flower arrangements available. Flowers that come in red, white, or blue tend to be crowd favorites, as they commemorate the patriotism of the day. You can also get flowers arrangements in custom shapes, or with custom memorabilia. For example, if requested, we can create the arrangement in the shape of a heart, a cross, or a flag. For your Memorial Day flower arrangements, here are flowers that are in season this time of year.

Flowers in Season

  • Iris
  • Peonies
  • Roses
  • Hydrangeas
  • Gladiolus
  • Statice
  • Carnations
  • Lilies
  • Forget-Me-Nots
  • Daisies

Pre-Order Your Memorial Day Flowers

If you plan on visiting cemeteries and placing flowers on graves of the fallen, preorder Memorial Day flowers early. This is a busy season for florists, so place your order in advance. If someone else is picking up your order, them up, be sure they know the store hours of the florist. It would be frustrating for them drive to our store location, only to arrive at the florist after store hours.

During the week our Boise florist is open Monday-Friday: 9am-5pm, but on Saturdays we are open 9am-12pm. Our florist will be closed on Memorial Day. Call (208) 342-5687 in advance if you have any questions about our holiday hours or any other day not mentioned.

Boise Mother's Day Florist

Celebrating Mother’s Day in Boise

By: Karli Willden

Once a year there is a day to give special recognition and appreciation to mothers everywhere. Motherhood is a beautiful thing, but it is no easy task. Make sure you take the time to appreciate the many ‘mothers’ in your life. Whether you were raised by your own biological mother or a mother figure who treated you as her own, a little appreciation can go a long ways. Here are a few simple things to keep in mind as you begin planning and making preparations.

What Mothers Really Want

When it comes to Mother’s Day, some people get anxiety over getting the perfect gift in time to make the day special for the women in their lives. While this may be a common scenario, Mother’s Day does not need to be a stress, especially when you have local flower and gift shops in Boise to help you out. Plus, keep in mind mothers really just want to know you love and appreciate them. Don’t worry if your gift is small or predictable, it’s the thought that counts. Remembering Mother’s Day and trying to make it special will mean the world to your wife or mother.

Make the Time to Celebrate

Nothing is more disappointing to a mother on Mother’s Day than to not be recognized by her family. Motherhood requires a lot of unpaid, unnoticed hard work, which is rewarding, but requires the best years of her life. If you have events which do not make it possible to celebrate Mother’s Day on the day, then let your wife or mother know in advance and make other arrangements. That way, on Mother’s Day she isn’t left to feel unappreciated or forgotten.

Even More of a Reason

While Mother’s Day is a day many look forward to, it can also be a difficult reminder for many women. Mother’s Day should be a day of thoughtfulness and appreciation. On Mother’s Day, women’s thoughts may be turned towards their infertility, their miscarriages, their troubled children, their inadequacies, or their own mothers or children who have passed on before their time. What better reason than these to go out of your way to send your love and appreciation to these women in your life, regardless if they are young or old, or if they have children or no children.
