A flower basket is a lovely gift idea for many special occasions. Floral selections today are far beyond what they once were, incorporating exotic styles into traditional favorites for unique works of art in nearly every price range.
Flowers can be expensive, thereby causing expensive flower baskets. No worries, you can create a budget to which you will stick to ensure that you do not exceed what you are able to spend on such a wonderful gift for someone. If you intend on using more exotic flowers in your basket, an option you have for keeping prices low is to only include a few of the more exotic and fill in using more domestic flowers.
Before you send the flowers, make sure that the person to whom you are sending the flower basket is able to receive flowers. Some hospitals now have restrictions on flowers due to a lack of space, allergens and intensive care units. You will want to make sure that your flower basket is allowed before sending. Many local florists will already know which facilities allow flowers and what restrictions are from there.
Some great Hawaiian varieties for your consideration in a flower basket are Mucca Coccinia, Ginger Shampoo, and Hel Psit Sassy. These are very interesting and unusual flowers which catch attention because of their unique shapes and colors. Again, these can be quite expensive, but if you only plan to incorporate a few of them in your flower basket, you can afford to fill in with other flowers.
More traditional flowers which we consider domestic may actually be imported from other countries, but are still very reasonable in price. Any variety of rose is a wonderful addition to flower arrangements, including flower baskets. Daisies can be fun and are available in many different colors, and can easily be dyed to match any color scheme. Lillies are a nice touch, as are carnations and star flowers. Alstomeria are another lilly variety which is great for flower baskets. It looks exotic but is widely available and comes in many different colors and color schemes.
To give flowers is a wonderful gesture. It is thoughtful and will always be appreciated. You’ll want to stick to a budget when you give a flower basket for any occasion as flowers can be pricey. Make sure you know what you want to give and try to include some exotic flowers in your flower basket.
