Belle Bouquet Information
Roses: With over 150 species and many more hybrids that come in a variety of shapes and colours, traditionally the rose has been associated with love and romance, however, they can also mean secrecy and confidentiality. More specifically, pink roses symbolise gratitude, grace, admiration and joy, yet the hue differentiates one flower from the other. A light blush signifies grace, but more intense pink hints at gratitude and appreciation.
England’s national flower, during the 15th century, roses represented two important families at the time, the Lancasters and the Yorks. The War of the Roses which took place between 1455 and 1485 saw the house of Lancaster represented by a red rose and the house of York by a white rose. However, the flower also inspired William Shakespear whose play Romeo and Juliet contains one of the most popular quotes on roses delivered by Juliet.
The rose is distinguished by its sweet fragrance, often used in perfume and a variety of beauty products, whereas rosewater, a flavoured liquid made by steeping rose petals in water is known for having anti-inflammatory properties. Filled with antioxidants, it is often used for hydrating the skin.
Foliage and Fillers: Serving as more than mere accessories to a bouquet filled with fresh and beautiful flowers, foliage and other fillers are often disregarded, yet they serve many purposes. From adding texture and shape to your floral decor, they offer structure and bulk, while they can also support delicate blooms and fill gaps between focals and accents. For instance, spiky foliage is often used for linear arrangments, whereas large, rounded leaves are utilised for mass arrangments.
In addition, the colour green itself is a symbol of nature and new beginnings and is closely associated with meanings of growth, harmony and freshness. Indeed, dark green foliage provides a dark background that helps accentuate the flowers stand out even further. Adding further interest and balance, ultimately, foliage and fillers are the backbones to stunning bouquets, complementing and completing any type of flower arrangement.
How to look after your Belle flower bouquet
– If you’re looking for ways to make your Belle bouquet bloom vibrantly and stay fresh for a few more days, have a look at our tips below:
– Once you have received your bouquet, there is no need to remove it from its container.
All you need to do is simply check the container’s water level and top it up as needed with water together with the flower food which you will find attached to the message tag.
Pro Tip: warm water is quickly absorbed by the stems, giving the flowers an instant boost, however, this also means that the blooming process is accelerated so it’s best to add cooler water. Make sure that no leaves touch the water as these can breed bacteria. Keep the cut end of the stems constantly submerged, yet remove any foliage that is floating around.
Light: place your bouquet in a spot with low light and good ventilation but avoid direct sunlight which may lead to petal burn.
Temperature: keep flowers at room temperature and ensure there are no direct draughts.
