After a festive period fuelled by mulled wine, mince pies and Quality Street, all played out to the soundtrack of Christmas favourites from the likes of Slade, Mariah Carey and Shakin’ Stevens, it’s little wonder so many people look forward to letting their hair down at New Year. Counting down to midnight with the champagne flowing is a highlight of the year for many.
But what if you can’t be with those special people in your life at New Year? How can you mark the occasion and share the party spirit? One of the top ways to connect is to get new year flowers delivered.
Flowers are the perfect way to send a personal message. This is all about the gesture: the gift of a bunch of flowers will let friends and family know you're thinking of them, even though you can't be together. Flowers are full of symbolism, and a well-chosen message – allied to the perfect petals – makes the gift even more meaningful. When it comes to flowers, good choices include pink roses, which stand for appreciation, delphiniums for protection, brightly-coloured gerberas which bring joy, and lisianthus, which mean gratitude.
Direct2florist’s florists around the world are on hand to prepare special New Year’s bouquets for you, ensuring you create an unforgettable moment for someone who is very close to you on this special day. Our skilled florists always aim to create the most beautiful bouquets only from the freshest blooms, meaning the lucky recipient will start the New Year in style. Our talented designers can even deliver flowers with a celebratory feel through party-themed accessories and glitzy wrapping.
To help you choose the perfect flowers to mark the New Year, in addition to the popular flowers mentioned above, here’s a round-up of ideas from the global network of Direct2florist local professional florists:
We begin with Anthurium, instantly recognisable by its heart-shaped spathes. Ideal placed in individual vases or as the focal point for bouquets, these flowers fill your home with love, care and kindness.
Chrysanthemum is a special flower that brings warmth and colour to any flower arrangement. Revered in China and Japan for centuries, chrysanthemum has many special meanings, and its playful colours and sizes make it a charming choice in bouquets. The Chrysanthemum is said to bring peace and happiness — just the sort of atmosphere we’d like to create in our homes.
The Cymbidium orchid is a fragrant delight that hails from the Himalayas. Their long vase life of up to five weeks makes them perfect for any home, not least because of the flower’s sweet scent.
Perfect in bouquets is viburnum. The balls of fresh green petals found on young ‘Snowball’ Viburnum makes this cut flower an excellent choice for holistic, peaceful flower arrangements.
Last but not least, lilac is an interesting choice. As well as looking gorgeous in a bouquet, its famed fragrance makes this flower the perfect base ingredient in a wintry design. Fill your home with the heady scent of lilac, and look forward to what the New Year brings, not least the upcoming arrival of spring.
And finally, for those looking to send New Year plant gifts, look no further than Orchids. Their shiny leaves, long stems, and gorgeous flowers will bring a feeling of tropical freshness into the space, week after week.
