Flowers for men

The tradition of giving flowers has been used for centuries as a way to express emotions like love or apologies. Flowers can have an uplifting effect and we know that men enjoy receiving flowers just as much as women! Here are a few tips to help select a floral gift for that special guy in your life:

Colour: choose bold, bright yellow and orange flowers and avoid soft pastel hues. Style: select tall, powerful looking flowers like sunflowers or birds of paradise. Plants: potted plants are a great alternative to traditional floral bouquets for men.

October’s birth flower is the Marigold – symbolising elegance and devotion. Also known as Calendula, this vibrant yellow and orange flower is used in Indian wedding ceremonies and festivals, and in Mexico for the Day of the Dead celebrations.

Cut Marigolds will last at least a week if properly maintained, and are perfect as part of a larger bouquet or arrangement, with lots of purple and white blooms and green foliage.

Did you know: Marigolds are edible and sometimes used in food as a substitute for saffron? The Marigold’s strong scent is also used as natural mosquito and fly repellent!

September’s birth flower is the Aster – symbolising love, elegance and patience. Named after the Latin word for ‘star’ due to it’s star-like shape, Asters come in a variety of bright colours like pink, lilac, white and mauve.

Asters are long lasting with a vase life of up to 14 days, if stems are trimmed and water is changed regularly. Great on their own in a small vase or bottle, or part of a larger arrangement with other wildflowers like sunflowers – we can create the perfect Aster inspired Spring bouquet to suit all tastes and budgets.

Saturday the 14th of February is St Valentine’s Day – celebrated in many countries around the world, Valentine’s Day is associated with romantic love and as such is expressed by many with the giving of flowers, chocolates or sweets and gift cards.

It is definitely one of, if not the biggest day of the year at the Richmond Florist store and we have been busy planning for the big day. Roses, particularly red roses, are the most popular flower type for Valentine’s Day and we have a large range of designs from the traditional and classic long stem roses in a box to more contemporary designs that we have developed in recent years including the most popular to date – the rose and vine pots. See the full Valentine’s Day range here

 

 

gift hampers

Along with our range of flower arrangements, bouquets and posies we create and deliver many fruit and gift hampers. The most popular combinations are fruit and flowers chocolates, teddy bears and other plush toys, foil balloons and delicious Australian made Chocolatier chocolates.

 

 

white roses

Roses are in my top three favourite flower varieties and I just never get tired of working with them. They of course are also a favourite of many of our customers and are always in high demand…This arrangement of white roses in a glass cube vase is a recent addition to our online range and I love the simplicity of its design and how it showcases the beauty of the rose bloom. This presentation would also make elegant table centres for a wedding or function.

 

 

orchids

Well we’re off to a great start in 2015 with many flower orders being placed for delivery throughout the lovely suburb of Richmond and with the very hot weather in the last couple of days we have been recomending our customers choose orchids and other tropical blooms and foliage as the best option for lasting well in the hot Melbourne summer…

Theses orchid vases are one of our latest designs and are proving to be a real winner as the glass creates a humid micro-climate which the orchids thrive in.
