Floral Designs for Special Occasions

Guest Author - Connie Krochmal

Throughout the year there are all sorts of occasions and celebrations that call for floral arrangements. These include events marking births and deaths as well as milestones in the lives of loved ones.


New Baby Floral Arrangements

To celebrate the arrival of a new baby, flowers are very appropriate. Novel baby-themed containers are often used. In addition to flowers, all sorts of baby accessories are often used in the design.

Most any style of arrangement is suitable for this happy occasion. Flowers are usually chosen in traditional colors with blue for boys and pink for girls. For filler flowers, babyís breath and heather are favorites along with wax flowers. Other types of suitable stems include small flowered mums, daisies, and roses.


Presentation Bouquets

For those participating in special events in the community, presentation bouquets are given. These are presented to participants in community performances and athletic events. These are very tall, one sided bouquets. These tend to be rich full arrangements decorated freely with ribbons and bows.

All sorts of flowers can be used for these special bouquets. A mixed color scheme is appropriate. Another option is to coordinate this with the outfit that the recipient will be wearing.


Graduation Floral Designs

Graduations mark a milestone for graduates. Flowers are often used for these celebrations. Most any kind or type of arrangement is suitable. They can be traditional ones in vases as well as wrapped flowers and bouquets. The type of flowers would depend on whether the graduate is a male or female. For men warm and hot colors are very appropriate.


Get Well Floral Arrangements

These require some thought if the loved one is in a hospital or nursing home. Bouquets arenít particularly suitable for those recuperating in institutions. They need to be in a waterproof vase or other container. For these designs, choose long lasting flowers and greenery that donít require any attention You wonít go wrong with long lasting alstroemerias. Flowers that wilt fairly quickly or have a short vase life arenít as suitable.


Birthday and Anniversary Floral Arrangements

For large scale celebrations a specific color scheme may have been selected in advance. If that isnít the case, try to choose colors and flowers that you know are the recipientís favorites. For birthdays, accessorize with items that will be of interest to the loved one, such as golf memorabilia for avid golfers or long cinnamon sticks for a gourmet chef.
