The beauty of flowers has always been exalted in every form of art – poetry, music, paintings. Flowers inspire, as what it did to master painter Claude Monet who said that “I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.” They are tender symbolisms of human feelings, exactly how Queen Victoria used them in honouring her departed loved one: “We placed the wreaths upon the splendid granite sarcophagus, and its feet, and felt that only the earthly robe we loved so much was there.”
The different emotions that flowers convey reflect the motivation of the giver and the goodwill towards the recipient. This is especially true in London where British flower culture is thriving all year round. Because flowers stand for feelings, the standard of flower arrangement has always been high.
As what luxury bouquet maker Lola Flower Boutique can attest, Londoners have discerning taste in flowers, and not just any flower choice or arrangement will do when it comes to expressing their feelings behind the gesture. This is why professionally-arranged luxurious flowers in London are constantly in high demand, and for three good reasons.
1. There are flowers for different occasions (birthday, wedding, graduation), corporate events (business openings, awards, anniversaries) and venues (homes, buildings, churches, mausoleums). Professional florists are trained to create arrangements appropriate for any occasion. They match the gesture with the right arrangement. Between a good flower arrangement and a happy recipient is an expert florist who serves as the “messenger” of the giver.
2. The abundance of flower varieties can leave one overwhelmed with the right flower to give. Be it roses, lilies, orange blossoms, lavenders, violets, morning-glory, daffodils, lilacs or dandelions, expert florists know which goes with what in terms of colour, cut and size.
3. Flowers given as a romantic gesture and those bought for no special reason but for the pure enjoyment of their beauty still require the special touch of experts.
A good flower boutique assures you that the flowers you give are well received and their meaning well conveyed.
