Flowers Open Your Heart to Love

It doesn't matter how long my relationship has lasted, and it's more than a few years I can tell you. I still love receiving flowers and there's nothing like the tingle of excitement when the delivery driver walks through the office, and you realise that he's not about to walk past your desk. It's for you! Yes, you're still loved enough for someone to send a wonderful gesture and not only that, the whole world knows it too.

For me, one of the things I enjoy least of all about my life is travelling for work and there's nothing more pleasing than to arrive at some chain hotel, walking into your otherwise unremarkable hotel room (they are all the same aren't they) to be greeted by a wonderful array of colours and scents.

Throughout the length of my relationship flowers have shown how consistently loved I have been. They have been the perfect way of making the most personal of gestures. From the simplicity of a small arrangement, perhaps just half a dozen deep red roses give out a message but accompany them with a soft cuddly toy, and the doors to true love will really begin to open. Birthdays and anniversaries are also times to mark a special occasion and 50 long stem red roses will simply take the breath away. Such an extravagant gesture is sure to melt even the most resistant of hearts.

Valentine's Day is definitely for lovers but perhaps grand gestures show a new relationship. As a relationship grows and matures it is important not to take the romantic love of your relationship for granted. You need to keep the early romance alive. A mature relationship needs to valued and reflected on all the time - not just on Valentine's Day to avoid taking each other for granted. If Valentine's Day opens the heart to love then regular gestures with seasonal flowers will certainly keep the love flourishing.

The depth of love can be reflected in the choice of blooms. Roses will always symbolise true love, especially deep red ones and they can be combined with lilies to create a stunning display which symbolises the depth and purity of a maturing relationships.

Flowers say so much about love which is why people enjoy receiving them but one thing to remember is that a lovely bouquet will make all the difference in the world. So have a look at the beautiful collection of bouquets meant for your loved ones at Pickupflowers; courtesy theflowerexpert

Fall Flowers

Fall is the season of change and there's no better way to bring the season into your home than with blooms that reflect the changing outdoor world. I was recently invited to an autumn wedding and the bride and groom had decided to make the most of the season's colours. They planned an indoor-outdoor reception (risky for the time of year) but it was worth it. The bridal flowers were a riot of autumnal colours that were really set off by the changing colours of the foliage. With a combination of wonderful natural textures such as rough cut woods and seeds and dried fruits for table arrangements all around us it added a very natural dimension to the wedding breakfast. As if by good luck, the weather was kind, and it reminded me so clearly about how flowers and Autumn work together surprisingly well.

During the fall surround yourself with blooms that promise the mists and mellow fruitfulness of the season. A combination of fragrant flowers such as scented geraniums and richly coloured dahlias with lush foliage will create a bouquet that takes the breath away. As the long hot days of summer fade and the leaves begin to turn to their autumnal glory look out for flowers that bloom at this time of the year. Exotic blooms such as the Kangaroos Paw can sit alongside more traditional roses, which can be combined with fragrant foliage such as garden herbs like sage or eucalyptus leaves to bring the feelings of plenty and the celebration of harvest into your own home.

Who can ignore the golden reds and oranges of the season, a riot of colours as well as a real treat for the nose? Brighten up your home with blooms of sunflowers that hark back to long summer days in the farms of France. Field after field of bright smiling yellowness captured all that summer sun and can now radiate it back into your home for one last, lingering glimpse of summer.

Bouquets featuring the bright colours of fall can be made outstanding by carefully selecting highlight bloomssuch as dark-red dahlias, yellow calla lilies and golden black-eyed Susans. They can all be made spectacular if they are presented in an arrangement and separated by blooms with contrasting colours for e.g. they can be separated by orange roses and purple trachelium. Green foliage or hydrangea blooms will then set the colour combination off perfectly. So what are you waiting for, celebrate this beautiful autumn with it's lovely flowers.
