Floral Design with Cara: Flowers for Friends

By Cara Ewald on August 29, 2014 from Floral Design with Cara via Connect-Bridgeport.com

Friendship Day is always celebrated on the first Sunday of August.  To me, everyday is friendship day---although, this year, friendship day was celebrated on August 3rd.  Friends provide comfort, support, and so much more.  Friends are there through thick and thin.  And, flowers go a long way by letting those close friends know how appreciative you are of them.  Plus, research shows that flowers guarantee smiles.  Some friendship floral gift ideas that I am fond of include the following:
 
1 - The traditional option of yellow roses symbolizes friendship, sentiment, joy, and thanks.  It doesn’t matter if it’s a small bud vase with a few roses and filler or a dozen yellow roses, your thoughtfulness will surely be appreciated. 
 
2 - Does your friend always make you smile?  Or, is your friend an ‘elegant’ person?  Describe their personality and hobbies to your florist who will make recommendations.  I recommend Gerbera daisies for a funny friend.  Lilies and roses are great for an elegant friend.  For a nature lover, I suggest a wildflower arrangement. 
 
3 - Send an arrangement that includes one flower for every year that you have been friends.  Make sure that the arrangement is accompanied with a card message that recounts your favorite memories. 
 
Start a ‘friendship tradition,’ which does not have to take place on Friendship Day.  Go to your florist; pick up some flowers and ribbon.  Get together with family and friends to create little friendship bouquets and then give the little bouquets to others and watch the smiles grow.
