Gifting flowers is a classic, fail safe option. No one can deny the joy of receiving a bright bunch of sweet smelling blossoms. As classics go, a simple bouquet is quintessential, but every now and then, it can be fun to liven it up with a twist. Birthday flowers are a staple, but here are some ways to make a birthday bouquet more exciting.
Decorate Your Gift with Flowers
Simple old wrapping paper is boring. Instead, use flowers as an adornment. They are a great way to liven up a present. Find something you want to gift your friend, and take it to your local florist and ask them to design a bouquet around it. Wrap up a gift in a regular box and have a small bouquet placed on top of it.
You could also take ordinary glasses and have your florist turn them into vases. They work as unusual decorations and eventually the containers become a useful addition to ones kitchen.
Gift Flowers with Something Reusable
Many florists are able to creatively design flowers around everyday items.
Find a selection of bouquets that come pre-designed in a beautiful vase. Once the flowers fade, the vase can be used again for another batch of blossoms.
An empty frame is also easily adorned with flowers, leaving the receiver free to replace the flowers with fond memories.
A simple, yet functional box is easy to decorate with flowers. Not only does it add an oomph to your bouquet, the box can be stored for further use.
Add a Spin to the Old Classics
Flowers and wine, flowers and chocolates, who hasn’t heard of these?!
Pair them up in creative ways and you’ve got yourself a beautiful gift.
A stuffed toy is a classic gift, yet it can be finicky to wrap up. Instead, find a happy toy and give it a temporary home hidden amongst a riot of colors.
Food hampers make everyone happy but they are generally decorated with just ribbons. An otherwise boring fruit basket can be turned into a thing of beauty when married with flowers.
Finally, add a spin to the old classic, candy and flowers by gifting someone a chocolate bouquet.
Remember, flowers are the easiest adornment to turn any simple item into a thing of true beauty. Use natures best decorations to make every present you give a memorable one!
