Flowers are a great last-minute gift — but be sure to send the right message - Seattle Times

On Flowers: Lessons From an Accidental Florist.” (Tif Hunter) Ashley Greer, owner of Atelier Ashley Flowers in Alexandria, Virginia, said clients tend to get stressed about their flower choices. “Some people are very self-conscious when it comes to flowers and their impressions,” Greer says. “People think that the flowers they use at an event or that they send are a direct reflection on them. And they want to be careful that their arrangement reflects their taste, their style and the occasion.” Advertising Condolence flowers may be what people most obsess about. “When you are sending something for a funeral you want to be sensitive,” Greer says. “Sometimes people say they don’t want to send anything that looks fun. They prefer something white and green.” Dowling, whose studio is in Alexandria, says condolence flowers “don’t have to be all white. Having flowers that are soft and comforting and focus on texture is a good way to go. Make them personal, and possibly reflecting a certain flower the person loved. Then they can really evoke the sense of a warm hug.” New York flower designer and illustrator Cathy Graham says her go-to sympathy flowers include a paperwhite plant and a white or blue hydrangea plant that could bloom for a few weeks. “You don’t have to do all white, but I would not use bright, festive colors.” Don’t overlook household pets when you are creating a bouquet or arrangement to send to someone, says Graham. “Lilies and other flowers are bad for cats,” says Graham, who worries about that with her own two ginger cats, Reggie and Cheddar. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals publishes a list of plants that are poisonous to pets. img data-ratio="1.50037" data-caption="Included in this Atelier Ashley Flowers design for a baby shower are ranunculus, which mean radiant charm.

There's a novel way to say it with flowers - Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

A get-well bouquet could channel a favorite place, pastime or dream. 'A DIRECT REFLECTION' Ashley Greer, owner of Atelier Ashley Flowers in Alexandria, Va., said clients tend to get stressed about their flower choices. "Some people are very self-conscious when it comes to flowers and their impressions," Greer says. "People think that the flowers they use at an event or that they send are a direct reflection on them. And they want to be careful that their arrangement reflects their taste, their style and the occasion." Condolence flowers may be what people most obsess about. "When you are sending something for a funeral you want to be sensitive," Greer says. "Sometimes people say they don't want to send anything that looks fun. They prefer something white and green." Dowling, whose studio is in Alexandria, says condolence flowers "don't have to be all white. Having flowers that are soft and comforting and focus on texture is a good way to go. Make them personal, and possibly reflecting a certain flower the person loved. Then they can really evoke the sense of a warm hug." New York flower designer and illustrator Cathy Graham says her go-to sympathy flowers include a paperwhite plant and a white or blue hydrangea plant that could bloom for a few weeks. "You don't have to do all white, but I would not use bright, festive colors." Don't overlook household pets when you are creating a bouquet or arrangement to send to someone, Graham says. "Lilies and other flowers are bad for cats," says Graham, who worries about that with her own two ginger cats, Reggie and Cheddar. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals publishes a list of plants that are poisonous to pets. The main thing with flowers is don't overthink them. "People are so touched by your making the effort to send flowers that pretty much whatever you send will be appreciated," Graham says. CHECK ON PRACTICES, CUSTOMS Anne Chertoff, chief operating officer of Beaumont Etiquette, a New York consulting firm, says it's always a good idea to check on religious practices and customs. "People like to know the rules," she says. "They can think about the message they want to get across. Then it's up to them if and when they want to use the rules or break with them." For instance, flowers for a funeral often center on lilies. But she says instead of flowers, it's customary for Jews to send or take food to the homes of the family who aren't supposed to cook during the shiva, which lasts seven days, and also to feed people who come to pay respects to the family. "I'm Jewish, so I would send an edible arrangement," she says. Amy Merrick, a flower designer who ran her own studio in Brooklyn and now focuses on events and teaching, says she has found that many customers don't have a very good knowledge of the varieties of flowers and place more importance on the style or mood of their arrangements. "The average person does have an interest in what flowers represent, but not in the historical context," she says. People are sending their own messages, choosing them based on the personality of the recipient and the personality of the flowers. "I think buying a bunch of daisies signifies this is a sweet, free-spirited personality, whereas an orchid has a more elegant feel to it," Merrick says. In her n...
