Christmas Flower Meanings that make for a Holly Jolly Christmas!

Holiday Garden™ Basket

There is always so much joy in the air around the Christmas holiday time; it is too bad that it doesn’t flow throughout the year for everyone. I particularly love the spirit of Christmas, the colors, the decorations, and the vibrancy it brings out in people. Maybe it is part of the reason I love flowers so much, because each and every flower has a way to bring out that same feeling, even when it isn’t the Christmas season.

Flowers are packed full of meaning, history, and even ancient legends of love. However, what about those beautiful accents used in Christmas floral arrangements such as myrtle, holly, Mistletoe, fir, pine and moss? Not only do they add the perfect accents to holiday arrangements, they also carry their own special meanings that add to the spirit of Christmas floral arrangements.

Let’s take a look at a few of those wonderful foliage that give the perfect touch to these gorgeous Christmas flower arrangements.

Holly is one of the leading accents in Christmas floral arrangement. Holly holds the floral meaning of domestic happiness. The meaning itself – domestic happiness – is a big part of what the holiday is all about so it couldn’t be more perfect. The secondary meaning of Holly is defense or protection. With the two meanings, with Holly in a Christmas flower arrangement, it is wishing the recipient a safe and happy home/life.

Mistletoe without doubt plays a fun roll in the holiday festivities. Who doesn’t love to sneak a little kiss in under the mistletoe with their favorite person? Mistletoe brings to Christmas love, from new blooming love to long lasting love. It fits perfectly in with the season meaning.

Myrtle is such universal foliage during this season that emits the meaning of love and unity. For the Jewish, Myrtle is a Hebrew emblem of marriage. With Myrtle in your holiday flower arrangements, you are gifting love, luck, as well as holiday cheer.

Firs used to accent Christmas flower arrangements emit the feelings of strength and durability to life’s challenges. In nature, firs are strong and can withstand most of what the world can throw their way. In Christmas flower arrangements, they give those deep luscious greens, a great fragrance, and delivery the meaning of undeniable strength.

Brant Florist is happy to help you create the perfect meaning you are wanting to express this holiday season in beautiful flower arrangements, bouquets and even gift baskets. Give the best gift this year in one that is full of meaning expressed like none other then flowers and their foliage.

Christmas Flowers and Greenery

Hurricane Centerpiece

When you think of winter, generally the first thing good you think about is the holidays. After all, it does help those that don’t favor the wintery winds manage to get through it a tad easier. However, when you think about the holidays, you can’t help not think about Christmas Flowers and Greenery. The first thought of many is their Christmas tree, and so starts the decoration to set off your holidays perfectly.

The fresh pine scent of the evergreen Christmas tree is just the beginning the wonderful aromas that begin to fill your home during the holidays. Of course, you cannot have a Christmas tree without the Christmas greenery – wreaths, swags and more, to accent the beauty you have already started to create. They add more of the holiday spirit to your home.

Mantles, tables, and just about anywhere you can think of are accented beautifully with poinsettias. What is Christmas without a poinsettia or two, or three or more for that matter? While waiting for the time to place gifts under the Christmas tree, poinsettias look extravagant encompassing the tree skirt.

Since the 17th century, it has been customary to have mistletoe adorning doorways. It’s a great way to get that Christmas kiss! Holly has been around even longer and gives Christmas that holly jolly feel.

Christmas table centerpieces can add just that perfect finishing touch. Christmas just wouldn’t have the same feel if not for Christmas greenery and flowers.
