The Top 4 Christmas Flowers Gift Ideas

Christmas is just around the corner! Australians love summery Christmas as we can spend our holidays basking in the warmth of the summer sun. We may have a White Christmas in the country, we still follow some of the most heart-warming tradition during the Yuletide season.

If you are looking for a thoughtful and beautiful gift to give out to loved ones this season, we highly recommend for you to send a bouquet of Christmas flowers. Instead of buying conventional Christmas gifts to your family and friends, why not send them flowers that they can use during their own Christmas celebrations at home or a Christmas flower or plant that they can grow in their own home?

 

What flowers represent Christmas?

 

  • Poinsettia

 

When we talk about poinsettia, the first thing that comes to mind is the Christmas holiday. They are immensely popular around this time of year due to poinsettia’s extremely vibrant red colour. Poinsettia symbolises two things; red as blood of Christ and white leaves for purity. If you want the recipient to take good care of it in the long haul, request that the poinsettia plant is placed in a vase. In this way, your loved ones can care for them and make them last longer, too.

 

  • Mistletoe

 

Mistletoe is the second most popular holiday plant as it is used as cheerful decoration. Although mistletoe is technically a plant, adding a few twigs to a flower arrangement will give that much-needed Christmas vibe.

 

  • Amaryllis

 

Amaryllis is a beautiful, slender flower in great demand during the Yuletide season. White and red amaryllis are great for Christmas flower arrangements due to their huge bulbs that are similar to trumpets announcing the arrival of the festive holidays. Amaryllis flower arrangements make excellent centerpieces and complement the colours of Christmas at home.

 

  • Christmas Cactus

 

Unlike the traditional types of cacti that thrive in hot and warm climates, Christmas cacti grow well in cooler temperatures. The flowers bloom around late November and usually adapts well to cool indoor environment. The flower got its name from its luscious flowers that hang down gracefully like Christmas ornaments.

 

These flowers can be included in the next flower arrangement that you send out to a loved one this Christmas. To find out about the other Christmas flowers or if you wish to place an order, call us now on 02 9871  1666.

The Best Christmas Flowers in Sydney to Send to your Loved Ones

The Yuletide season is a time for glad tidings, good cheer, and beauty. One great way of spreading joy and love this Christmas season than sending Christmas flowers to Sydney family and friends. You can now send Christmas flower arrangements by ordering them online.

Although flowers are not the first thing that comes to mind when we talk about gift-giving during the Christmas season, doing so is a thoughtful and sweet gesture nonetheless. This article will help you pick the right Christmas flowers that your loved ones will immensely appreciate.

Top 2 Christmas Flowers in Sydney

You may find this surprising, but did you know that majority of Christmas flowers are actually tropical plants? Tropical flowers and plants are ideal around Christmas season in Australia as we enjoy warmer climate around this time of the year. This also means that it will be relatively easier for your recipients to take care of them over time.

Here are the top 2 flowers that are excellent gift ideas this Christmas:

  • Poinsettia

Poinsettia symbolises Christmas. Poinsettia has been a part of Christmas traditions all around the globe. Also known as “flower of the Holy Night” the colours of the poinsettia flower symbolise the joyous event that is the birth of Jesus Christ. The red petal symbolises the blood of Christ whilst the white leaves represent purity.

You can have poinsettia delivered in a pot or have it installed in a flower arrangement with other beautiful blooms. They are great centerpiece flowers when combined with pine needle leaves and frosted acorns.

  • Amaryllis

The Amaryllis is another popular flower around Christmas holiday. The tall and elegant beauty of the Amaryllis matches with the festive celebrations that happen during the Yuletide season. The Amaryllis plant typically comes in red and white colours. Ideally, Amaryllis should be delivered cut and placed in a vase so it can last a long time (up to three weeks) and can bloom again with proper care.

 

Send your loved ones these beautiful, seasonal flowers. We deliver lovely Christmas flower arrangements to anywhere in Sydney at your request. For orders and enquiries, you may call us on 02 9871  1666.

Merry Christmas 2018

A Different Christmas List

It came without ribbons! It came without tags!

It came without packages, boxes or bags!”

And he puzzled three hours, til his puzzler was sore.

Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before!

“Maybe Christmas,” he thought, ” doesn’t come from a store. 

Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”

Dr Suess

Can you believe it is Christmas Eve? I must admit that I think I’m in denial. It has been a big year, and it seems that the world is turning a little bit faster, and that our journey around the sun seems to be taking a shorter amount of time each year!

On the day before Christmas, there will be people who are still rushing around finalising their Christmas shopping; getting last minute gifts, boxes of chocolates (just in case), collecting their chosen beverages for the holiday and getting all the fresh ingredients for their Christmas meal.

In amongst all the madness, all the rushing, and stress, it is so easy to forget what Christmas is all about. Now look, not everyone celebrates a Christian Christmas, and for many, the day has no religious significance at all. But, if you live in Australia, Christmas is a National Public holiday- and the idea of a holiday is rest, a slower pace, and enjoyment, right?

Sure, it has become increasingly commercial over the years, and let’s face it, it’s always nice to be given something that someone has chosen for you, but these days, Christmas can turn into a bit of a circus…and this ringmaster for one, is having trouble controlling her monkeys!

I saw this Christmas To Do list posted many times over the last few weeks, and I had to share it with you all:

Be present this christmas

In the process of getting everything done, and having everything look perfect, we put extra pressure on ourselves, and in turn our families.

I remember my friend once telling me she was the self appointed ‘Queen of Outsourcing’. Why? Because she figured her time was better spent doing the things she enjoyed and that made her happy, than running errands or rushing around doing housework. Instead, she made the choice to pay a bit extra to get the jobs she didn’t want to do, DONE.

So, that is my advice to you too over the holidays. Sometimes, paying a delivery fee to get something to you is worth saving yourself a round trip. Sometimes dropping the laundry off will alleviate enough pressure that you will be able to enjoy a slow morning at home reading.

DIY table decorations

Sometimes the idea of decorating your Christmas table with something homemade (that you found on Pinterest) is more satisfying than the actual experience of doing it yourself. Without the proper tools. With time restrictions.

So whilst the clock is ticking and there are only hours left of trade, rest assured that Florist With Flowers has been up early this morning at the markets, getting a beautiful selection of fresh flowers for you and your families to collect in store, or for local delivery. Take advantage of our skills and our passion.

We would also like to take this opportunity to wish all our customers who are celebrating tomorrow, a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We appreciate your loyalty so very, very much. You make it possible for us to do what we love everyday, and we know that we could not do it without you.

Be safe, and we look forward to another wonderful year working together in 2019.

DIY Christmas wreaths

D.I.Y Door Decorations

Let’s face it, Christmas is expensive. And even if you simplify, as we do, the cost of quality items is high. Add to that the cost of the Christmas meal whether that includes turkey or prawns, pudding or trifle. And don’t forget the provisions you just have to buy when the shops close for 24hours…you know, ridiculous quantities of canned goods, preserved fruits and vegetables, extra milk and bread to freeze 🤦‍♀️

Florist With Flowers designs a gorgeous range of wreaths each year, suitable for your table or your door. Call us on 02 9871 1666 or come in-store to chat to our friendly staff about your requirements. You can get some inspiration here. If however, your budget has stretched as far as it is going to, yet the decorations have been left to last, here are a few ways to get creative.

Embroidery Hoop Wreath

Using an embroidery hoop from your local fabric/craft shop as your wreath base, you can create a simple yet stunning door hanging. Taking inspiration from Scandinavian design,  the focus is as much on the empty space within the piece as it is on the decorated area.

You only really need a small amount of pine or spruce along with foraged pine cones to complete this simple wreath. This example shows how it can also be adapted to be your own special advent calendar. You simply number some brown paper bags and fill them with your chosen treats, and finally attach them to the base.

Pool Noodle Wreath

For those of you who are not only cash poor, but also time poor, this option can be prepared well ahead of time, freeing you up closer to Christmas. It requires NO fresh ingredients. Aside from gluing the noodle together to form a ring which would need to be done ahead of time, this wreath would take less than 10 minutes!

30 minute Bauble Wreath

This wreath is about as festive as you can get. You can choose the colours you fancy, but you will need approximately 90 baubles in a variety of sizes, a hot glue gun, an old wire coat hanger and a bottle of wine 🍷  (according to the author). For a full breakdown of instructions you can check out the full post from Delightfully Noted.

Kmart Christmas Hula Hoop

Kmart products often inspire a bazillion creative hacks, and Christmas is no different….in fact there are probably even more sources for inspiration. This year, one clever mummy has created the most impressive hanging display which will sit over her dinner table, but the concept could just as easily be adapted to create an amazing door hanger or decoration for an entry gate. Lisa Heenan’s simple instructions can be found here, but please note, Lisa has attached the hoop in four places to her ceiling fan which allows it to move slowly in the video.

Lisa Heenan created this hanging arrangement using a Kmart hula hoop and flowers, vines from IKEA and discounted store ornaments.

The $5 hoop can be found at Kmart, along with a variety of other retailers, and is simply covered in an assortment of artificial vines, and blooms sourced from IKEA, Kmart and discount stores.

Should you wish to adapt this to include fresh foliage and fresh cut flowers, I would suggest using a combination of doddavine, trailing Ivy as your base to cover the hoop. Both materials last well without water. For your flower choices, I would generally recommend sticking with dried flowers, or flowers that can either survive for the day without water or in small water vials.

Spray painted dried lotus pods, pine cones and gum nuts are ideal as they are dry. White Singaporean orchids are a delicate bloom that lasts well without water.  Most tropical blooms will withstand a day or so without water, particularly if it is humid.

This is soooo simple to look at, and even simpler to do. Using only eucalyptus foliage which can be left to dry on a super simple frame, and adorned with quaint paper cut outs…really, is there any excuse not to have a wreath when there are options as easy as these.

Still, not everyone is crafty, so as you know we are here for all your fresh flower, gifting and Christmas decorating needs.

Gifting Made Easy with our fresh flower gift vouchers

Gifting Made Easy

When the madness of Christmas is firmly upon us, panic can start to sink in. Have we bought enough? Does each child have what visually appears to be equal? Have we gone overboard? Have we forgotten someone? Please for the love of God, don’t let me forget someone….

And sometimes, you find yourself with a list of people who may already have everything, or are just a bit ‘hard’ to buy for. There is someone like that in every family really isn’t there, and I bet that they end up with an assortment of the same presents each year…or perhaps a variety of gift cards.

Various gift cards make great presents

I think gift cards have an unfairly negative reputation. They can be seen as a lazy present, like you haven’t put any thought into the gift or some may think they are too restrictive, and prefer cash. Cash can so easily get swallowed up in day to day expenses, but this is far less likely with a gift voucher. And when you think about it, gift cards force you to buy something for yourself, from somewhere you perhaps wouldn’t purchase from usually.

And isn’t that exactly what a gift should be? Not something you need, but rather something you wouldn’t treat yourself to ordinarily.

Gift vouchers for fresh flowers with Florist with Flowers

Fresh flowers often fall into this category. They are the first expense to be cut from the office budget along with the cream biscuits…and the luxury scrapped from the household/grocery budget when things are get a bit tight.

Fresh flowers are still very much seen as a luxury for many people, and at busy times like Christmas where cash is slipping through your fingers, they can be something you go without yourself.

Long lasting native bouquets are so beautiful and long lasting. With a gift card, you could create something like this to fit a vase from home

Gift cards are a wonderful idea for flower lovers at Christmas. And the greatest thing about them is they are flexible. Many people go away around the holidays so sometimes an arrangement can go to waste, but a gift card allows the recipient the gift of fresh cut flowers, when they are ready.

Imagine gifting someone a years worth of weekly flowers 🌺  🌺  🌺 …Gift cards with large dollar amounts can be used gradually to dress the home. The recipient can choose a variety of market fresh bunches or premium stems depending on what takes their fancy on the day.

Seasonal favourites- Sunflowers. Is there anything cheerier?

They also make a great gift for corporate customers, business affiliates and amazing suppliers who go above and beyond the call of duty.

Florist with Flowers offer gift vouchers online at 3 different values that you can team with or without a fresh flower gift, or chocolates. Alternatively you can pop in-store to request a specific amount.

Like all vouchers, they are not redeemable for cash, but they are certainly redeemable for smiles 😁😄😃 I guarantee that after their first visit in-store to choose something, they will forever chase the feeling that fresh flowers brings to your home and your heart ✨🌈💖❤️💛💚💙💜

Flowers have a special kind of magic, that beckons us to live in the moment and enjoy the present… I think we all need a reminder to do that every once in a while.

Pet Plants for Christmas

Christmas can be a time for giving handmade gifts, crafted with love. It can be a time for exchanging fun, gimmick gifts. Sometimes it can also be an occasion overrun with extravagance and consumerism. And sadly, it can also be a time that people give thoughtless gifts; gifts that require much, much more from the recipient than perhaps they had bargained for.

Do you remember the campaign “A dog is for life, not just for Christmas”? It was one of the most successful slogans in the world of animal welfare, because it is so true. Giving a pet as a present is a pretty big call. Sure, you may really think they want one but pets are extremely expensive, require adjusting your lifestyle, and taking on additional responsibilities. ALOT of additional responsibilities.

this puppy was awaiting a new home. Gloria, was one of 126,673 animals the RSPCA received in their 39 shelters across the country in 2012/13.
this puppy was awaiting a new home. Gloria, was one of 126,673 animals the RSPCA received in their 39 shelters across the country in 2012/13.

According to the RSPCA, last year alone, they accepted 130,000 animals from the community, which is incredibly sad.  And would it surprise you to know that the biggest reason given for relinquishing an animal is behavioural problems, which is often the result of a lack of triaining and a lack of exercise.

Choosing a pet is an incredibly involved decision, that takes a lot of time and consideration. It is a very personal decision that is best left to the person who will be left cleaning up the mess and wearing the costs. And the problem with getting an adorable baby animal is that they don’t stay that way forever. The reality is that when someone gifts you an animal, it is pretty unlikely that they’re turning up with a geriatric cross from the pound. So while the pounds continue to fill up with unwanted animals, the puppy farms continue to supply a steady stream of designer breeds.

Pet plants are our newest addition

Now, it probably comes as no surprise that Florist with Flowers do not specialise in cute and cuddly animals, BUT what we do specialise in is gorgeous, quirky giftware. Our newest additions are the only kind of animal you should buy and thoughtfully give away! These gorgeous ceramic pots come in a variety of animal shapes; elephants, llamas and even flamingoes, and they include a hardy, low maintenance plant. Too easy! You won’t find these babies online though, so pop in-store to browse our selection and pick the right pet for you.

The baby elephants are super cute and available in various colours

If however, you are looking for a gift to send to someone special this Christmas, our festive season range is available online now. Check it out here.

Merry Yuletide is a bright and festive bouquet of fresh flowers

Given Christmas time is such a frantic time of year, Florist with Flowers is able to organise fresh flower gifts, gift hampers that include fruit, chocolate and something to wash it all down with, and more. Talk to one of our friendly staff about any special requirements you may have.

Christmas Tree Concepts that will Floor You!

Well, there is no denying it, The Christmas countdown is certainly on, with less than 4 weeks to go.

Our home probably looks like many others at this stage. I have located most of my Christmas gear in boxes from the garage, but there is something inside me that prevents me decorating until December 1st. And let’s face it, there is a list a mile long of things to organise at this time of year: cards to post, letters to Santa to write, shopping lists to write, menus to plan, gifts to buy, and wrap!

To make things a little easier for you Florist with Flowers has a gorgeous range of fresh flower gifts, plants and hampers on offer this year. If you are yet to check gifts off your list perhaps for someone who is a little hard-to-buy for, check out our Christmas range here.

Last week’s blog featured some creative Christmas trees ideal for smaller spaces, and little hands, but this week we are sharing with you some inspirational floor standing trees.  Again, these are not your traditional Christmas tree, so they may suit some homes and family personalities more than others. What I like most is how creative people are. I love how people reuse, recycle, and upcycle. I love how the focus is on repurposing, and rethinking materials that you already have. And lastly, I love how these options rarely use plastic components, so they make our planet happy too.

Cardboard Box Tree

I’ve turned cardboard boxes into cubby house and trains in my time, but so far, I haven’t made them into a Christmas tree. For young families, this floor standing Christmas tree can be bright and festive, AND manages to avoid the irresistible tendrils of tinsel and the inevitably bouncing baubles too! It is a great Christmas activity to enjoy together; firstly designing the trees decorations and then carefully painting it all. You can find step by step instructions here.

Brown Paper Christmas Tree

I personally like the tone of brown paper and/or cardboard, so I would probably opt just to paint simple decorations on the cardboard tree and leave the base natural. This brown Paper Christmas Tree is another alternative, and again, the decoration can be as simple or as tizzy as you like. Interested in recreating this look by Craft a la Mode, click here for a full tutorial.

Teepee Tree

I love the idea of creating a simple teepee with bamboo poles, or another appropriate stick. For an Australiana theme to Christmas, decorate the tree with garlands made from pretty eucalyptus leaves, which have a gorgeous scent and will dry nicely in the heat of our summer. This option can be decorated with traditional tinsel and lights too of course, but I think that half the appeal is in its simplicity. Less is more!

Christmas Tree alternatives. Teepee tree

Ladder Christmas Tree

Everyone has an old wooden ladder hanging around right? So what about using it as a centrepiece for Christmas one year? This particular look would fit right into a converted warehouse space, or a home with a rustic or industrial feel. While researching for this piece I found many unique versions of the ladder tree: some with a bazillion balls suspended underneath, some with planks of wood placed across each rung, to create shelving, but this one, with the large hanging paper decorations is by far, my favourite.

Whilst the Christmas countdown has begun, there is still plenty of time to organise gifts and decorations. Browse our gift ideas online, or give us a call in store if we can help design something special this year.

Christmas ideas for something a bit different

Flat Christmas Tree Displays When Ordinary Won’t Do

I don’t know about you, but at my particular stage of life, a traditional Christmas tree just doesn’t work. Last year I optimistically took a picture of my two eldest, proudly sitting in front of our hanging wooden slat tree, which they had just finished decorating. The caption below excitedly announced “Our last Christmas with a non-traditional Christmas tree”. What a laugh. 🎄🎄🎄

Firstly, I think I had forgotten what a two year old was like….add to that the fact that I grossly underestimated the difference between girls and boys. So it seems I have just a little over a week to decide what my alternative to a Christmas tree is going to look like this year. Can you believe that December is almost here? It’s crazy to think that the festive season is really upon us, and if you are looking at getting organised already, you can check out our Christmas range now 🎄 🎄🎄

There are a bazillion ideas out there for people looking for something a little different. The result will largely depend on whether you want to use things you already have lying around at home, or whether you are happy to buy some supplies.

Wall hanging trees are fabulously out of the reach for little hands, and are also a great alternative for you if you haven’t a lot of space. Ready to buy flat felt Christmas trees are available at several retailers,  however I like how unique and creative these alternatives are.

🎄Honeycomb Christmas Tree🎄

This version of the honeycomb tree is very bright and festive in a non traditional way, however you can imagine how fabulous it would look in traditional red, white and green, or any colour theme really! The honeycombs can be picked up from Kmart, and most dollar shops inexpensively, and can be adhered with blu-tac.

🎄String Light/Tinsel Christmas Tree🎄

Whether you choose to use just string lights, string lights and decorations or add tinsel as well, this concept is incredibly simple and easy to erect. You will need removeable hooks ( preferably the 3M ones) which you can easily take off the walls without damage. And my biggest tip? Adhere the hooks facing outwards so it is easier to wind the string through them firmly.

String light and tinsel wall tree

🎄String Christmas Tree🎄

I looooove this one. How effective does it look!!?? And, by using a couple of different coloured strings you could make it even more festive. You could also tie in the colour theme you are using for your decorations or you could peg your cards to the string instead. If you like the idea, a full tutorial is available at My Poppet.

🎄Memory/Milestone Christmas Collage🎄

Choosing one of these Christmas Tree alternatives is often due to having small children, and this tree is a wonderful way to appreciate the passage of time, and all the big moments that have passed during the year. These days we so often rely on the digital copies, but seeing it all before your eyes is a beautiful way to share these moments with friends and family who may have missed many of them.

This would also be a fabulous way to showcase some of your favourite moments after returning from an overseas adventure and also a lovely way to display moments captured in time with loved ones who may have passed.

Photo Frame Upcycle Tree

I love this one because I’m sure I’m not the only person In the world who retires photo frames to a dusty old drawer. Give them a coat of paint, and a new lease on life. Voila! Putting pictures in them is absolutely not necessary, but if you chose to, it could be done of course. Alternatively fill them with festive sayings.

Half the fun of the festive season is the decorating so next week I’ll share with you some fabulous floor standing alternatives to your traditional Christmas tree. They will also give you the opportunity to personalise and customise your displays to suit your home and decor. 🎄🎄🎄

How to Shop for Christmas Flowers Online

Sending Christmas flower arrangements is one of the best ways to wish friends and family a Merry Christmas. Beautiful Christmas flowers are hard to say no to, especially when they are arranged skillfully by expert florists. Giving out native bouquet Christmas flowers symbolises the spirit of giving that we all strive to show our loved ones. In addition, having Christmas flowers and plants delivered to people who are dear and near to your heart is an inexpensive but thoughtful way of showing their value in your life.

 

In this article, we will discuss some of the most common Christmas flowers and plants ideas that you can use when making your list of Christmas gifts:

 

  • The Poinsettia plant Christmas flowers are some of the most iconic symbols of the Yuletide Season. If you’re planning on sending poinsettia to Sydney-based friends and family, make sure to provide them with thoughtful tips and reminders on how to keep them for a longer time, and even have them blossom next year!
  • Christmas cactus is fast becoming a favorite giveaway for Christmas. Ideally, these flowers should be placed on a clay pot for that extra classic and rusty appeal.
  • Rosemary is yet another favorite among the Christmas flowers and plants. Due to their pyramid shape, small Rosemary plants resemble traditional Christmas trees. They are ideally placed on countertops, the kitchen and in spaces that need a boost of freshness.
  • Hydrangeas are colourful and vibrant flowers that amplify the energetic and lively mood of the holidays. As Hydrangeas come in various colour patterns, you may either order one-colour hydrangeas bouquet or go wildly beautiful with hydrangeas in various hues.
  • Sending out red roses should not be limited to Valentine’s Day only. To make them more festive and wholesome, you should cut the stem shorter and combine it with Yuletide elements such as pine cones. By adding these items, your roses will look even more festive.

Christmas Flowers – Best flowers for Christmas

Receiving a fresh bouquet or pot of flowers induces genuine feelings of happiness and joy. If you want to brighten the day of a loved one during the holidays, give them flowers for Christmas. Flowers are not the first thing that pops into our mind when we think about Christmas presents. But if you want your idea to be unique and just as thoughtful as traditional Christmas treats, sending our Christmas flower arrangements is definitely the best way to go.

 

  • Christmas Flowers are the best gift idea for people who have everything

 

What do you give a friend or a family member who literally has everything in life? Or for loved ones who simply don’t need more material possessions in their homes? Try giving them flowers for Christmas. According to studies, sending out Christmas flowers enhances the mood of recipients. It’s the most thoughtful gift that money can buy during the holidays.

 

  • Save Mother Earth while making other people feel good at the same time

 

If you’ve recently jumped on the “zero waste” bandwagon, sending out Christmas flower arrangements is best. Gift giving around the holiday season can be extremely wasteful. To reduce your carbon footprint and that of your Christmas gift recipients, you can’t beat giving flowers for the Christmas season.

 

Although flowers for Christmas will start wilting a few days to a few weeks after delivery, since they are biodegradable, they will not contribute to more trash in landfills and even waterways.

 

  • Flowers are an affordable Christmas present option

 

A misconception about flower gift giving is that they are too expensive and may not fit right into the budgetary constraints. But did you know that flowers are cheap, especially when you know where to look. Source local and ethically-grown produce. During the holidays, make sure to get blooms in season such as:

 

  • Poinsettia
  • Roses
  • Carnations
  • Germinis
  • Chrysanthemums
