People start to give New Year's bouquets from the very end of November, until January 7th. This is because they are associated with warmth, comfort, a fire burning in the fireplace, the smell of a Christmas tree, the feeling of a festive table and the New Year. The occasion can be anything, from business to romantic. Such gifts bring joy not only to the recipient but also to the giver.
Essential flowers of New Year's bouquets are scarlet amaryllis and Ilex (small round berries on a long branch). Sometimes, for bouquets that are not very tall, Hypericum (another flower with berries) is more suitable than Ilex. We also use red anemones, burgundy roses, cotton branches, tulips and other seasonal flowers. In bouquets, Leucadendron gives them elegance and asparagus of different colors gives airiness.
For those who don’t want to give cut bouquets, there is always the classic - Christmas star plant, or Poinsettia , which we use both separately and in compositions.
The main material used is coniferous branches of different varieties and natural decors in shades of green. We sometimes add pine cones, dried flowers, cinnamon, dried oranges, cotton, Christmas tree decorations, artificial snow, painted eucalyptus and various decoration sticks to bouquets. At Lovely Roses, we try to avoid artificial flowers, but many florists actively use them in bouquets, taking advantage of their main advantage, durability.
Red with gold, white with blue and silver, pink with purple, warm caramel chocolate,different shades of green - all depend on the florist’s imagination and the client's taste. For the New Year, we use special packaging and special holiday ribbons.
The flowers in the bouquet remain long, they should be placed in a vase and water should be changed daily. The composition is assembled from shorter flowers on bioflora - a special sponge that prolongs the life of the flowers; water must be added daily since it quickly evaporates in warm rooms.
People often wonder if they even give flowers for the New Year. From our experience, yes, they give, both as the main gift and as an additional gift to the main one. More gifts for New Year.
If you decide that the occasion is too big and a bouquet of flowers will not be enough, we recommend adding one of our gifts from the New Year section, for example, a basket with various gifts.
