Celebrating flowers in bouquets
Pictures I have taken of flowers in bouquets
Celebrating life with flowers
Flowers in bouquets are such a nice gift and gesture. From being young, and picking your own bouquet to give, to receiving a dozen long stemmed roses as an adult, there is great joy associated with flowers.
They are so beautiful, and represent life. There isn't an occasion where they wouldn't be welcomed, short of someone's strong allergic reaction of course. Even in the saddest moments of our lives, friends and loved ones show love with flowers, and it is so welcomed.
I recall getting my first set flowers in the mail a long time ago. It was from a boyfriend, and it was my birthday. I was in high school still, and was so shocked!! There was a note, that I had a delivery and that it was left with the next door neighbors. It was a very memorable experience. Having to find a vase and filling it with water was all so exciting! There they sat, beautiful as could be!
Here I want to share some individual flowers from bouquets as well as some bouquets themselves. See if you know what they all are. Some are from weddings, some from friends and family showed the thoughtfulness of the giver.
Some of the shots here are of individual flowers that stood out to me in particular bouquets. On a sadder note, I love to give flowers for funerals. Somewhere along the way, I have picked up from my family that it is so important to give flowers when someone has died. Sending them for the funeral, or visitation, or memorial service is so special. Often, a mortuary will have as part of its "package" to take all the flowers to the burial site if that is part of the plan for the deceased.
Having had to deal with all of that this last year with my father, I can tell you that every thoughtful gift of flowers or potted plants or even succulents, was so much appreciated. It truly means so much to hear from others, and it shows a kind of support for the family when sometimes words are hard to express for the loss they are experiencing. When in doubt, consider sending flowers, it can mean more than you know. If money is tight, go in or call them letting them know what you are wanting to spend, maximum. They will let you know what the options are.
Among my most favorite bouquets, are ones from my children, or some other child that just wanted to give me a flower or two. It puts a real smile on my heart. :) Those kinds of gifts also get special attention, and their own little "vase."
