May 6th – National Nurse’s Day
Brighten the day of a Nurse with flowers. During this year of 2020, we all know of the sacrifices Nurses have made during the Corona Virus outbreak. Flowers are vibrant, fragrant, and cheerful.
May 6th is National Nurse’s Day which begins National Nurse’s Week, May 6-12. Nurse’s Week ends on May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, founder of modern nursing.
A flower arrangement can change an environment with fragrance. A single rose is very fragrant. Many people can detect a rose in a room, almost immediately, by the scent.
Sending flowers does not have to be flamboyant. A bud vase of a single rose is as emotional as a huge arrangement.
Celebrate National Nurse’s Day by sending a flower to the nurse you know!
A simplistic single rose is filled with the perfect emotion!
No single bloom can express more meaning than a single rose bloom. A rose has a language all its own. This is a language that needs no translation. A rose can say “I love you.” or “I’m sorry.” Every individual has their own interpretation. Every interpretation has a situation.
Take a chance. Start a conversation. Surprise someone with a single rose.
Valentine’s Day is associated with Roses!!
This is an arrangement of tea roses in a small antique pitcher. This is a perfect centerpiece for breakfast in bed.
When someone mentions Valentine’s Day, most people picture Roses. To me, the most popular are long stem roses arranged in one dozen, half dozen, or bud vases of 3 roses or a single rose.
Many do not realize roses come in many varieties. Some other varieties are miniature roses and tea roses. These are smaller blooms. Miniature roses are single blooms on each stem. Tea roses are multiple blooms of the miniature rose on a stem.
When deciding on a Valentine’s Day gift, look at many sources. Sources are widely available. There are flowers in many retail stores, especially at holidays.
Visit a local florist. There are many ideas and suggestions for flowers in different price points. Many florists have varieties and flowers distinctly unique. The Florist is very knowledgeable.
A modern arrangement of roses replicates a handheld bouquet.
A new fashion in rose arrangements is the handheld design. This design is created by arranging the roses in your hand as you would a bouquet. After the bouquet is created, the stems are cut to fit the vase. These roses were accented by Silver Dollar eucalyptus. A simple tied bow was added to the center of the vase.
There are many possibilities to look at when arranging flowers. The internet is a great source, but another source is one’s local florist. Look for local designers and visit the florists. The arrangements may be fresh or artificial. Many florists have wonderful designs showcased in their shops.
On Valentine’s Day, all eyes are on the recipient of a rose delivery at one’s place of employment.
Since times of mythology, roses were believed to be created as symbol of love. In Greek and Roman mythology, roses were associated with beauty and love. William Shakespeare referred to roses in “Romeo and Juliet”.
Individuals of the Victorian Era were deeply fascinated with the language of flowers. They used flowers to express their feelings. Flowers were given on Birthdays and other special occasions. Roses were expressions of emotions and feelings. Red Roses were representations of a passionate and intimate manner of love. In recent times, red roses still represent love and romance.
In the language of flowers, the number of roses in an arrangement has special messages. An arrangement of one dozen signifies the message “Be Mine”. An arrangement of two dozen roses means “ I’m Yours ”.
