There are some traditions we can count on lasting forever, and Bagoy’s Florist & Home believes that the floral kind belong in this category. Giving flowers to commemorate a success, welcome people into a new home, or to honor the arrival of a new baby are all examples of the kind of gestures we mean.
In many cases, it’s not just about giving flowers, but about giving the right flowers. For instance, if you’re looking to express appreciation to a friend or otherwise show your thanks, send yellow roses. They have communicated feelings of friendship, warmth and affection for a long time; send them, and you’re helping to keep that traditional meaning alive. If you add some purple flowers, as we have in our Candy Blooms design, you’re also hinting at pride and success.
There are so many occasions in our daily lives in which we participate in long-standing traditions. The giving of flowers is no different. Whether you’re pinning a corsage on your prom date or placing poppies at a grave site, the story behind each floral tradition is fascinating and says a lot about who we are as a culture.
