Send a Little Luck this St Patrick’s Day with a Lucky Flower Arrangement!

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner. Most people know that four leaf clovers are lucky flowers. However, this is not the only lucky flower. Though you might not stumble on a lucky flower as you go about your normal activities, you can brighten the day of your loved ones, friends or co-workers with a St. Patrick’s Day bouquet on March 17. This lovely bouquet will lift the recipient’s spirit and possibly bring about a stroke of good luck in the form of a new friendship, a romantic relationship, money or other discoveries.

Good Luck Flowers: Carnations

Green Carnations St Patrick's Day By Brant Florist

One of our most popular St. Patrick’s Day bouquets contains carnations. This flower’s history dates back over 2,000 years. Carnations are rich with mythology, symbolism and folklore. There is no doubt that carnations are some of the most beautiful flowers on the planet. However, few know that they are also associated with good luck and pure love. The ancient Romans and Greeks used carnations in garlands and ceremonial crowns. Today, the carnation serves as a gorgeous decoration and is widely thought of as one of the luckiest flowers around.

Morning Glories

This lovely flower is said to bring about happiness, peace and good luck. Place a morning glory beneath your pillow and you just might enjoy a refreshing night of sleep that is void of nightmares. Morning glories feature a bell-shaped bloom which is partially responsible for their reputation for brightening one’s day. Native Americans once used the flower’s leaves to make tea to alleviate indigestion and headaches.

Sunflower

The sun flower follows the sun and is said to provide positive energy to those in its vicinity. This lucky flower makes a living space feel considerably brighter and safer. Go ahead and eat the flower’s seeds and you just might enjoy a string of good luck. Some say sleeping with sunflower seeds below one’s pillow inspires honesty amongst friends, family, co-workers and others.

Peace Lily

Peace lilies are said to reduce stress, generate soothing feelings, improve sleep and generally improve the lives of those who care for them. This flower is also a sign of good will. It features uniquely spiked leaves that exudes positive energy into a living or working space.

How Early Should You Order Wedding Flowers?

If your wedding is on the horizon, you have likely spent some time thinking about how you would like the celebration to look. Flowers are a major component of your wedding’s aesthetic. Flowers represent your personal tastes, play a big role in the wedding’s theme and provide important color. These flowers will last forever as they will be captured in video and pictures taken during the celebration of your love. The question begs: how early should wedding flowers be ordered?

Key Considerations

Do not haphazardly select a date ahead of your wedding to order flowers for the big day! The last thing you want is a bunch of old and wilting flowers to line your wedding hall, reception area and other spaces within the facility. Brant Florist customers will testify that we have the best possible combination of diverse inventory, great prices and elite customer service. We can accommodate orders placed a year in advance as well as rush orders and anything in between.

It is imperative that you wait until the perfect time to place the order. Try to figure out exactly which types of flowers you desire for your wedding far in advance. Keep in mind that certain flowers might not be available during specific seasons and/or months. Once you have settled on flower types that match the colors and theme of your wedding, it is time to start planning the order date.

Order Timing

It is prudent to place your order wedding flower order between six and nine months ahead of the wedding. For some people, ordering this early might seem way too far ahead of the wedding date. However, placing your order far in advance gives us ample time to plan for your big day. It will also give you a lengthy window to coordinate your wedding apparel and theme to match the color and style of your flowers.

Why Waiting Until the Last Minute is a Mistake

Plenty of brides believe they can wait until the months, weeks and days ahead of their wedding date to place the flower order. This is especially tempting for brides who plan to order flowers online. However, delaying the order until the last minute will negatively impact the wedding planning process. If you put off the order too long, it might prove difficult to procure the appropriate flowers to match the wedding colors and theme.

Give Your Florist at Least a Full Month to Prepare Your Floral Arrangement

At a bare minimum, you should order your wedding flowers at least one month in advance. Give your flower provider at least this amount of time to assemble your arrangements and you will avoid rush charges, guarantee your chosen flowers are available and give the florists enough time to grow specific flowers for your celebration.

Winter Blues - Brant Florist

Add some colorful flowers to your home or office and you will feel uplifted. Our bodies are searching for sources of light and color in the monochromatic winter months. Flowers infuse much-needed color along with lovely smells that ultimately serve to boost one’s mood.

Exposure to Flowers Lowers Stress Levels

The winter makes it awfully difficult to spend lengthy periods of time in the greater outdoors. Furthermore, much of the outdoor landscape is covered in ice and snow. Most of the plants are lifeless until the spring months. This is precisely why you should bring nature’s beauty indoors. Add some gorgeous flowers to your living or working space and you will feel much better during the depressing winter.

Simply Looking at Flowers Will Suffice

A study performed by Harvard University researchers found that merely looking at flowers in the early morning hours can induce happiness and reduce anxiety. Winter mornings are especially stressful. It seems like it takes forever for the sun to show. The temperatures are egregiously low and the ice is as solid and slippery as ever. Do yourself an enormous favor by looking at a lovely floral arrangement for a few minutes each morning. Though this sounds a bit irreverent, it just might work wonders for your mood.

Even if you don’t want to gaze at flowers each morning, you will still benefit from their presence. Place vibrant flowers in the rooms of your home that your frequent on a regular basis and they will improve your mood and energy. When in doubt, place your flowers in the kitchen as that is where most people spend a considerable portion of the morning.

Flowers can Even Trigger Positive Emotions

Let’s face it: Most of us get a little depressed in the uber-cold winter months. Many suffer from seasonal affect disorder (SAD). Others are stricken with cabin fever. It is quite easy to feel sad, anxious and even angry between December and March. Fret not, flowers can help!

A study performed by Rutgers University lends credence to the popular notion that flowers boost emotional health.
