If your friends or family members have just moved into a new home – or have just bought a shiny new apartment – what better way to mark the occasion than with a surprise delivery of beautiful housewarming flowers to offer your congratulations.
A thoughtful delivery of flowers – or a delightful plant – is a gesture that will be long remembered and help make a house a home.
Sending housewarming flowers continues a tradition that dates back to the Middle Ages. The term descends literally from the act of warming a new house, when guests would bring firewood, and build fires in all the available fireplaces. Over time, the idea has developed into one designed to fill new homes with well wishes, good health and prosperity. Certain gifts have also become synonymous with specific gestures, including:
- Houseplant: “May your home always have life”
- Wine: Symbolises the hope “That joy and prosperity may reign forever” or “That your family will never be thirsty” or “You will always be of good cheer”
Flowers and plants have the ability to turn all living spaces – especially those filled with boxes – into a welcoming home.
Housewarming flower choices could include fragrant blooms to create a lovely ambience or something bright and colourful that bring a room to life.
When it comes to houseplants, Direct2florist’s network of professional florists can deliver perfect housewarming gifts using easy-care varieties for gardening novices to showy flowering plants that promise to spread a little happiness. Customer favourites include:
