We send flowers to the ones we love and care about the most for many reasons.
However, when we want to send a bouquet to celebrate a new beginning – whether it is a new baby, a new home or a fresh start, it can be difficult to choose the right flowers.
Whilst many meanings have changed over time, there are a few flowers which have remained popular for the occasion of a new beginning.
Whilst roses are often thought of as symbolising love, they also symbolise the prospect of a new beginning depending on what colour you choose.
Roses symbolise that of purity hence why they are often used at weddings. Believe it or not, even black roses signify that of a new beginning – relating to the last stage of a mourning process after a death. Therefore it is recommended that roses are used during a time of death and mourning.
Carnations are the ideal bouquet to give someone in order to celebrate a new beginning. If the pink carnation is given to a woman it represents that she will never be forgotten from your mind – these are readily available from Serenata Flowers. Whilst the red carnation is a symbol of adoration – the white one symbolises that of good luck in a new venture, or a new beginning – ideal for that of a loved one.
Lilies are known to contradict themselves when it comes to their meanings. The ‘lily of the valley’ is used to represent a new beginning and a prosperous future. Whereas the ‘day lily’ is the Chinese emblem for mother making it the ideal gift to present to a new parent. There are many types of lilies available today, but the one best for saying; a new beginning is the lily of the valley. This flower is perfect for a colleague at work to celebrate a promotion.
