WHITE FLOWER BOUQUETS

White flower bouquets are a classic choice. They take centre stage at every milestone and ceremony of life, bringing a touch of glamour and sophistication to any event. White is not the absence of colour but the presence of all colours. White has a calming effect and is the purest and the coolest of colours – we think it’s simply brilliant.

THE MEANING BEHIND WHITE FLOWERS

Every type of flower and each flower colour has an ancient story of hidden meaning behind it. White flowers symbolise purity and have a wide range of meanings. They are the symbol of peace and convey everything from elegance to innocence, sometimes even sympathy. Lots of people think white flower bouquets symbolise new beginnings and fresh starts. White flowers have a place in every culture. White weddings started in 1840, when Queen Victoria walked down the aisle in white, carrying a bouquet of white myrtles. The Victorian era also saw an increased interest in botany and floriography, the ancient language of flowers. White flowers were sent to show pure intentions. White roses were a symbol of secrecy. If you wanted to apologise to someone, you would send white tulips. White hydrangeas showed unconditional friendship.

WHY SEND WHITE FLOWERS?

White is one of the most neutral colours you can get. It says calmness and cleanliness, making it a great choice for get-well flowers. White flower bouquets are perfect for apologising, showing sympathy and even congratulating someone on moving into a new home. Often you’ll see them decorating weddings or baptisms. White flowers represent honour and admiration, which makes them the perfect choice for new relationships and anniversaries. They’re the perfect gift for baby showers and graduation ceremonies – a timeless, classic and elegant choice.

When is the best time to send white flowers?2023-01-18T10:46:16+00:00

White flowers are great to send all year round. They are suitable for almost every person and occasion. 

Is it possible to paint my white rose bouquet red? 2023-01-18T10:49:45+00:00

While it was possible for Alice to paint the queen of hearts roses red, we don’t advise it. After all, if one does insist on going around shouting, ‘off with their head’, one should not feel obliged to follow their behaviour. 

If I put my flowers in the sun, will they turn white?2023-01-18T10:50:27+00:00

As far as we know, the sun does not bleach coloured flowers white. We did a test earlier and found that if you place your beautiful bouquet of white flowers in full sunlight, they bloom earlier than the ones left in a darker corner of the room. To make them last longer, we recommend keeping them out of direct sunlight, following the care guide instructions and changing the water every two to three days. 

Why do white flowers mean so many different things?2023-01-18T11:10:51+00:00

White flowers seem to pop up in almost every situation and occasion. They are often seen at weddings to occasions of sympathy. Hypoallergenic flowers like carnations, daffodils, hydrangeas, orchids and peonies are a great choice when visiting someone to wish them well. We think the reason they are so popular and have such a wide range of meanings is that white flowers represent a fresh start, and this is why they are suitable for almost all of life’s great occasions.

If beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder, then who is to say which is the most beautiful white flower of them all? If we went by the most popular white flowers, then it’s a simple answer which can only be the white rose, followed closely by the white lily. 

What is the most fragrant white flower?2023-01-18T10:51:37+00:00

The Gardenia. A favourite in the perfume world, gardenia smells even better in the garden. These milky-white flowers bring a strong, exotic scent to any room.

What is the longest-lasting cut white flower?2023-01-18T10:51:59+00:00

Both lilies and freesias last relatively long in a vase and will tend to look fresh for 10 – 14 days as long as you follow the care instructions and change the water regularly. Orchids and Carnations have the most impressive vase life of around two to three weeks. The longest-lasting white flower is Baby’s Breath, also known as Gypsophila. Florists often add these ethereal flowers to bouquets, as they last forever.

Where should I put my white flower bouquet?2023-01-18T10:52:19+00:00

It doesn’t matter if you place your bouquet at the entrance, in the dining room or on your bedside table. They will look lovely and bring brightness to each room. Remember to place them in a cool place away from direct heat and sunlight. Flowers are also sensitive to ethylene gas that is released by fruit, so don’t put them near your fruit bowl, or they will wilt rather quickly.
