Over the centuries, flowers have held an important part in the history of nations because of what they signify. Their diversified use can be gauged by the fact that whether it’s a funeral or a celebration, one can see the use of flowers in abundance. On an occasion like Valentine’s, red and white flowers are in particular demand because of what they convey. Red flowers denote passion and love while white ones are used to symbolize purity. Flowers add color to a setting’s ambiance and this article will suggest a few flower arrangement ideas that will make your Valentine’s Day even more special than it already is.
If you’re planning on a casual dinner with friends in an informal setting, the flower arrangements chosen should be such that they compliment that purpose. If it is a buffet table, the table cloth can be in white while rose petals sprawled on that table should be in red color. Bouquets of flowers can also be set on the table to add color to it.
In case of a formal dinner, single red roses can be put in vases and set in front of each person if the table is rectangular shaped and has a long length. But if they are round tables, a few flowers in vases can be put on each table.
Flowers home delivered or given by hand will be arranged accordingly. Their quantity can depend on the message that the sender has to convey. For example, a single red rose signifies the phrase, “Love at first sight,” while 3 roses represent the fact that the person giving the flowers love the recipient. 9 roses connote the notion that the lovers will remain together forever while a bunch of 10 roses imply that the giver wishes to say the recipient is perfect.
In case parents have arranged a kids’ party, a cardboard can be cut out in the shape of different cartoon characters and then flowers can be stuck on them with glue. This will give a colorful effect to the whole environment and a reason to children to enjoy even more.
If you’re planning to take your sweetheart to a candle lit dinner for two, the flower arrangements will differ accordingly. The table can not only have a single flower in a small vase but the candle which is to be used may be a floating one. Fill a bowl with water, put the candle inside it and add a few red rose petals in the bowl. This will reflect the light on those petals, adding a beautiful touch to the arrangement that is created.
