At this time of year, we are all reminded of the many things for which we can be thankful. Have you ever thought about how flowers enrich our lives? Research shows that the flowers we select to display in our homes add a bit of our personality to our home décor. At Beneva Florist, we are happy to share a few of our favorite flowers, explain what each means, and see which blooms will become your favorites too.
With their bright yellow petals that often remind us of sunshine, these flowers, with contrasting centers, make a pleasing addition to almost any arrangement! Our Spectacular Sunrise display includes sunflowers to bring happiness and cheer into your home housed in a glass cube vase. Just like the people who admire these blooms, sunflowers tell the world that you are an enthusiastic and optimistic person who enjoys life. Place them throughout your home for a positive energy boost!
An ancient flower, the Protea got its name from the ancient Greek sea god, Proteus, son of Poseidon. Proteus was said to have the power to change his shape anytime he wanted to. The Protea comes in such a great number of shapes and sizes, that it seems a fitting name for the flower. Autumn Susara is a vibrant display of blooms including Protea that showcases fall colors in a stunning clear glass vase.
Among the most popular flowers in the world, daisies are well known to represent friendship, innocence and cheerfulness. With their vivid colors and large blooms, Gerbera daisies are a hardy flower. At Beneva Flowers, we love to use this flower in arrangements such as our Warmest Autumn Regards bouquet. Bright pink Gerbera daisies bring a feeling of cheer to your home.
Birds of Paradise
Tall, striking blooms that resemble a bird soon to take off in flight, Birds of Paradise adds a tropical feel to any arrangement. Our Fall in the Tropics display starts with the bright orange and green of the Birds of Paradise bordered by deep green leaves to create a captivating display. A significant part of Hawaiian culture, the Birds of paradise has come to represent faithfulness and love. Our Tropical Centerpiece design displays this sentiment perfectly. This is one of the many reasons it is a favorite flower.
These exotic flowers bring a touch of mystery to your home. Technically a part of an herb that was originally cultivated in both China and India. Now, they are grown throughout the tropical areas of the world. Gingers are known for their bright colors and symmetry. These flowers add a tropical punch to any display. We love to use gingers in our displays, as seen in our Lolei bouquet.
The colorful flowering kale, also known as ornamental kale, with its bright purple center fading to vivid green edges, is a lovely addition to any fall display. Growing well in containers, add flowering kale to an arrangement of chrysanthemums, pansies or marigolds for a quintessential autumn display.
