Birth Flowers of July

July brings with its entrance a patriotic spirit as 4th of July preparations highlight the start of the month across the country. Festivities decorated in popping blue, red, yellow, and white are capped with fun, food, and fireworks as America pays tribute to the forefathers who paved the way to her independence.

One of July’s flowers of the month is the bright and graceful Larkspur, the common name shared by two flower types: the perennial Delphinium and the annual genus Consolida. With its vivid blue color, Delphinium surely fits the celebration’s color palette. Its nature as a plant also complements the festivities. With its ability to bloom in harsh environments, the flower provides the most astounding splash of color in the homes or gardens it adorns. Some species take on the colors pink, white, or violet and grow all year round, creating fields of color that freshen up the views of meadows and mountainsides in some parts of the country. Its resilience indeed resonates with the dignity demonstrated by American heroes and forefathers.

Larkspur & Delphinium commonly signify an open heart and passionate feelings. Pink flowers convey a flexible, changeable character. White flowers signify feelings of bliss. Bright purple flowers carry with them the notion of first love. It is a wonderful gift and welcome addition to July’s holiday ornaments.

Here in Arizona, the Monsoon season brings strong chances of rain later in the month of July, where July’s other flower of the month is apt. The Water Lily, with its tranquil and solemn character, will bring peace to anyone’s environment despite the stormy weather.

The perennial Water Lily acquires its name from its freshwater habitats and its likeness to Lily flowers. Several meanings have been attached to this plant, including mythical, spiritual, and magical indications. It is viewed differently across cultures, but it is often related to purity, rebirth, love, and enlightenment. It can also signify grace and chastity because of its reserved appearance as its rests on its leaf.

Giving this flower as a gift signifies a feeling of reverence and adoration. It is also significant of well wishes. Fiesta Flowers Plants & Gifts recommends that Water Lilies be kept in ponds or water-filled containers where they can bloom peacefully, exuding perfect grace.

Reasons To Send Flowers In July

The year is halfway over, and July is here. Independence Day, International Kissing Day and other holidays are nearly upon us. There is no better way to celebrate these special days than by sending beautiful flowers to your loved ones. But if you’re still wondering why you should send flowers this month, here are some celebrations that can inspire you to do so.

Independence Day

Every July 4th, fireworks light up the evening sky, the smell of barbecue fills the air, and parades, carnivals, concerts, baseball games, and family reunions brighten up your day.

You can bring a bouquet of freshly cut flowers to the gathering or send a beautiful and unique arrangement of flowers to the love of your life.

You may also decorate your home with blue, white, and red to feature the spirit of the holiday if you’re hosting the celebration.

Like flowers, the American flag’s colors are symbolic. The red stripes symbolize courage. Red gerbera daisies, carnations, and roses are widely used on Independence Day because they represent passion and bravery.

The white stripes and white stars signify purity and innocence. White calla lilies, carnations, and daisies are emblems of loyalty, honor, virtue, and purity. They also symbolize freedom.

The color blue stands for perseverance, justice, and vigilance. Blue is also the universal color of tranquility and peace. Delphinium, blue orchids, and blue hydrangeas signify calm and peace.

Crown patriotic flower arrangements with an American flag to accentuate the holiday spirit.

 

International Kissing Day

Whether you want to give a friendly peck to your pal or a passionate kiss to your significant other, July 6 is the perfect day to give smooches and kisses. You can plan dates and send a beautiful bouquet from Fiesta Flowers Plants & Gifts right at your loved one’s doorstep.

International Kissing Day gives you the perfect reason to show your love. A spectacular bouquet can heighten the mood for this occasion.

 

National Simplicity Day

Henry David Thoreau was a philosopher, naturalist, author, historian, abolitionist, and development critic. He was born on July 12, 1817. Just as Martin Luther King Day honors Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., National Simplicity Day is observed to honor Thoreau and his works. He was an advocate for living a simple life.

This occasion is all about slowing down, appreciating the small things in your life, and enjoying what nature can give to you. Flowers bring nature indoors. They also liven up office spaces and homes.

 

Parents’ Day

It’s natural to send flowers to your crush or significant other to convey what you feel for them. But what better way to show your love to the people who gave you life than to send a vibrant, fresh floral arrangement?

Parents’ Day is the perfect day to show your appreciation for everything your parents have done for and given to you. If you’re too far away to give your parents some of your time, it is easy to convey your feelings of appreciation by sending flowers to them.

Most celebrations in July are all about giving something away, whether it’s a kiss, your time, or anything that can make your loved ones happy and feel appreciated. Bouquets and artfully designed flower arrangements make for the perfect gifts for this month’s celebrations. For the upcoming occasions in July, contact your local florist, Fiesta Flowers Plants & Gifts to obtain the freshest flowers available!

June’s Flowers of the Month – Selecting the Perfect June Gift

The month that starts off the summer season and one that is tied to many special occasions and holidays. For example, Father’s Day comes once a year in the month of June, and it’s also a very common month for Weddings, and therefore, Anniversaries. But did you know that June also is the most popular month for Birthdays? June also has its very own flower that is tied to it? In this article, we will discuss June’s flower of the month, the Rose, and the meaning and other significance that goes along with it.

Anniversary Balloon BouquetJune’s flower of the month, according to the American style and the English style, is the Rose. This is a flower that is much beloved, and used in many, if not most, weddings and gifts of flower bouquets. And while Roses come in many different colors, from white and yellow to pink, red, and beyond, the underlying symbolism of this lovely flower is love and passion. But that is, of course, not the only symbolic meaning that the Rose carries. According to the English style, the Rose also carries the meaning of chastity, humility, sweetness, and a return to a state of feeling happy. The American style pays homage to the Rose as a flower of love and affection, as well as a feeling of appreciation and gratitude. In both styles of the June birth-flower, the Rose is a beautiful symbol of romance and positivity.

If you are choosing a Rose as a gift for someone, no doubt you will want to select the right color for the meaning that you hope to convey. When it comes to Roses, since they can be found in a variety of colors, a different hue is appropriate for specific circumstances. A red Rose is the perfect choice if you are gifting a flower bouquet to someone you love, as the red Rose means, “I love you.” It is synonymous with romance and passionate love.

Pink Roses are an excellent choice in a gift bouquet that symbolizes appreciation and gratitude. And, of course, the yellow Rose is synonymous with friendship, happiness and cheer. It is the perfect Rose to give someone you admire deeply or share a friendship with. And don’t forget the white Rose, which is a fabulous symbol of new beginnings, purity, and innocence. Of course, a beautiful flower bouquet does not have to carry any specific meaning behind it due to color if you do not want it to. For instance, if your loved one has a specific favorite color you can select that particular Rose in order to give them the best possible gift you can.

Selecting the best flower gift possible can be made easy when you use a flower shop that specializes in bouquets and crafting flowers in the most attractive arrangements for presentation. Fiesta Flowers Plants & Gifts is a flower shop that can help you deliver a beautiful Rose bouquet for any occasion you need. Order easily right from our website or simply give us a call and have the floral arrangement delivered on the same day, if ordered before 2pm.

Flower Delivery – The Easiest Way To Make Your Mom’s Mother’s Day From A Distance

Mother’s Day is the perfect holiday for people to express their love and thankfulness to their Mother. Your Mom has done so much for you, and the prospect of paying all that back in one gift can be a difficult one. Most Moms will be happy with just about anything, but you really want to WOW her so she knows how much you care. If you live far away, this is doubly difficult, because popular options like taking her out to dinner are off the table. In this situation, a delivery of fresh flowers is one of the best gifts that you can give!

Flower delivery is an awesome way to show your Mom you care, no matter how far apart you are. Many gifts can be delivered, but sending a beautiful hand designed bouquet of flowers can show her how important she is. If you want to give your Mom the sensation that you are there handing over a present, a fresh flower delivery is about the closest you can get without showing up on her doorstep yourself.

Flower deliveries are the perfect gift because they come fresh in an attractive arrangement. You can order from https://fiestaflowersaz.com/ and find an arrangement in your budget that you know your Mother will love. Then, they will be delivered personally. A flower delivery is so much more personal than a normal delivery.

Most women love flowers, and your Mom is no exception. It is hard to replicate the feeling she will have when she sees your flower arrangement sitting on the table or counter. This classic gift is a big mood booster, and will make her feel so special and loved. Flowers are one of the best ways to show you care!

If you are struggling to find a Mother’s Day gift that pays your Mother the proper tribute, consider ordering her flowers. For grown children that are out of town, a flower delivery is a great way to make a big impression on your Mom and show that you are thinking of her. Order the flower arrangement today, and wait for her to call you raving about your gift. Your Mom will be blown away, and will be thinking of you for weeks afterward.
