Choosing the Right Flowers for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s day is coming, and that means roses! While it’s only appropriate to give one type of flower this Feb 14th, don’t think your options for creativity are limited! With the right bouquet from All Flowers And Gifts, you can ensure your Valentine’s Day flowers say “I Love You” just the way you want them to.

The Meaning of a Bouquet

When individuals fall in love, they come together to form something greater than themselves. Each member contributes their own unique character, together creating something more beautiful than they could ever make on their own. It’s appropriate, then, that the gift we give each other on the day we celebrate love is the bouquet, symbolic of this very idea.

Like relationships, no two bouquets are the same. Each has a distinct character, the result of unique individuals coming together to create something beautiful. For bouquets, its flowers each contribute their own aesthetic appeal to a grander arrangement. For relationships, it’s people coming together in love.

When choosing your bouquet this year, it’s useful to think about the distinct character of your relationship, and creating a bouquet that reflects it. Consider these thoughts from All Flowers And Gifts

Aesthetic Decision-Making

With so many arrangements and bouquets available, it can be tough to select the one that best fits your relationship and the aesthetic preferences of your significant other. It can be useful to ask yourself these questions to ensure you pick the right one.

  • Simple or Complex?

Sometimes elegance is preferred to complexity, sometimes complexity to elegance. Knowing which one your significant other prefers can be massively helpful to picking the right arrangement or bouquet. Consider the way they decorate their spaces. Are they sparse, clean, and organized; or are they more densely packed, ‘noisy’, and rich?

  • Bouquet Colors

Picking the right colors is a powerful way to demonstrate the unique character of your relationship. Lighter and more vibrant colors indicate a relationship full of energy and vitality; whereas darker, deeper colors demonstrate maturity and richness. Selecting an arrangement that balances light and dark elements is a great way to speak volumes about your relationship!

  • Bouquet Accessories

A bouquet or arrangement is little without the vehicle for its presentation. The vase you choose is an opportunity to contrast or enhance the character of your arrangement. Thin, taller vases make for thinner, taller arrangements; displaying your flowers on-high and revealing any aesthetic accents in your selected vase. Shorter, wider vases allow flowers to spread out, sacrificing ones view of the vase to accentuate the view of the flowers.

All Flowers And GiftsLove's Divine

Be sure to keep these considerations in mind when looking through our wide selection of Valentine’s day arrangements, and you can ensure that this Valentines will be one that both you and your significant other will cherish for years to come!

The History of Mother’s Day and The Importance of the Carnation

The origins of Mother’s Day can often be thought to be traced back in time to many ancient rites, which had symbolic and spiritual origins, such as many Goddesses and symbols of motherhood that were celebrated. Mother’s Day is a celebration that honours motherhood, mothers, maternal bonds and the influence that Mothers have had on society. It is an American invention and it is not directly related to the many celebrations that have occurred throughout the world over the past thousands of years. May 10, 1908 was the first official Mother’s Day celebration that took place in West Virginia and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. White carnations were given out to every Mother that was in attendance at the celebration in Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia.   Today white carnations are still very important as they are used to honour Mothers that are deceased. Pink and red carnations are used to pay tribute to Moms that are still living. In 1914, the second Sunday in May was signed into being the day of national observance, in which the second Sunday in May was declared as Mother’s Day. From this date on, this holiday flourished in the United States. Flowers became a very important part of the celebration especially the white carnations.

Today, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May in many countries; however there are some countries that have different days set to celebrate, most commonly in March, April and May. Over 70 countries observe Mother’s Day.

To celebrate this special day Mother’s Day cards are often given as well as flowers which are a very popular gift to give in celebrating with Mom’s. Carnations have always been a popular flower, however today we have a wide variety of beautiful fresh flower and plant arrangements for Mother’s Day. Choices can range from traditional, to modern and contemporary. Whatever the choice, Mother’s will always appreciate and treasure a gift of flowers on this special day.

The History of Administrative Professionals’ Day

Administrative Professionals’ Day (has also been known as Secretaries Day or Admin Day) is observed in several countries to recognize and acknowledge the work of administrative assistants, receptionists, secretaries and other administrative support professionals. In Canada and the USA, it is celebrated on the Wednesday of the last full week of April (April 22, 2015).

The original idea for this day started with Mary Barrett the president of the National Secretaries Association, now referred to as IAAP (International Association of Administrative Professionals), and C. King Woodbridge the president of Dictaphone Corp. They had served on a committee which was addressing the shortage of skilled office workers, and together with Victor Toldoya who was a public relations account executive at Young & Rubicam, the idea for a National Secretaries Week originated.

The first National Secretaries Week was held June 1 – 7 in 1952, with June 4, 1952 Wednesday designated as National Secretaries Day. In 1955, the date for National Secretaries Week was moved to the last full week of April. In 1981 the name was changed to Professional Secretaries Week. In 2000, it became Administrative Professionals Week, to cover the increasing responsibilities and expanding job titles of administrative support staff.

Over the years, one of the largest workplace observances has become Administrative Professionals Week. This year in 2015, it will run from April 20 – 26, with Wednesday April 22 being designated as Administrative Professionals’ Day. This occasion is celebrated worldwide through different community events, social gatherings and individual corporate activities which recognize administrative support staff with gifts. In Canada and the USA this day is celebrated often by giving one’s assistant gifts such as flowers or gift baskets.
