The Best Choices for New Year’s Flowers
With Christmas over and the next big party already on the way, you’ve probably already cast your mind onto your New Year’s celebrations. If you are hosting a celebration of your own or you want to thank another host, some New Year’s flowers could be just what you need to add to up the proceedings.
With all the regalia of Christmas still up, it is sometimes easy to fall into the trap of building ahead with some of the Christmassy bouquets still lurking around florists at this time of year. However, New Year’s Eve very much has its own charm. It’s also an occasion (especially if you are hosting the party) to mark a change from more flashy Christmas designs and instead try flowers that are a bit simpler and more understated to add some difference with the last big celebration. This simplicity also stresses the normally sparse amount of flowers blooming in midwinter (although the last few years have proved to be an exception).
There are a few different types of flower that you could choose from which will provide the best head start to the year 2021:
Let’s be frank, roses work in almost any situation. A few white or red roses, or a combination of both, could be a perfect way to celebrate the start of 2021. Roses are synonymous with class and excitement and if you are looking to add a little of that to a party then there is truly no nicer flower for you.
As the birth flower of January carnations are an ideal flower to ring in the New Year. Carnations offer a lot of flexibility due to their many colours and shapes. They also add a round shape to the bouquet, a bit like festive floral balloons, allowing them to fit into your decor perfectly. If you’re feeling extra adventurous you could also try dying your carnations a colour to match the theme of the New Year’s party you will place them in.
With their spread petals opening up like the spray of champagne at midnight, lilies are a fantastic choice to welcome someone to 2021. They are already a classic flower to send to someone in their own right and, with white lilies especially, it is easy to see how these could be the best surprise to start the year with.
