Coming up to Christmas, you might be wondering what are the best flowers to send someone during the festive season? Flowers are of course more associated with birthdays and Valentines Day, but sending bouquets with Christmas cards is becoming more popular. Part of December and the New Year is having relatives and friends over to your house, so you want your home to look the part! Festive bouquets or strategically placed winter plants can make all the difference in making your home seem warm and cozy. We have outlined the best flowers to send to a friend or loved one this Christmas.
There are few things better to receive then red roses. Whilst traditionally a romantic gift, a bouquet of red roses becomes a festive treat around Christmas. Sure to brighten up any home, try and combine these with silver pine cones and other colourful decorations. You can even use red roses on your Christmas dinner table.
Mad Flowers have put together the ideal Christmas Bouquet. This is perfect if you are sending get well soon gifts or even a Birthday bouquet if it happens to be in December! This bouquet is being hand crafted with red roses, pine cones, gypsophilla and snowed eryngium, and can be delivered between the 15th and 24th of December.
Holly & Berries
Red and green berries work particularly well as a Christmas decoration. These can be in a plant, in a bouquet, or as foliage on a mantle piece, but work most effectively when accompanied with holly. This is a safe, traditional Christmas gift, and is suitable for colleague or loved on alike. They also work well in a wreath which can be a pleasant present to receive at this time of year.
In general, white flowers work very well around Christmas. They brighten up a cold dark house, but also combine beautifully with red and green flowers/berries at this time of year. It can be also be a good idea to do some DIY, turning normal green flowers into Christmas flowers using powdery snow out of a spray can. You can view the bouquet below here.
