Although many people look forward to Christmas for months, some people eagerly put away their decorations and lights on December 26th. However, Christmas celebrations don't always end at the end of the day on the 25th of December. According to tradition that goes back centuries, the twelve of days of Christmas began on December 25 and went all the way until "twelfth night" on January 5.
This year, celebrate the 12 days of Christmas with love and generosity by planning surprises for someone special. Floral gifts are perfect for this kind of celebration because they bring instant beauty to the recipient, and they can also easily be customized to suit the occasion. Also, who doesn't love getting flower?. Consider the following floral celebrations for the 12 days of Christmas.
Go with the Themes of the Silly Song
If you bring up the twelve days of Christmas, most people will think of the silly song that helps many kids with counting. It starts with a partridge on a pear tree on the first day and ends with twelve drummers drumming. "The Twelve Days of Christmas" was published in England in the 1700's, but it can be just as relevant today.
Use the song to inform your floral gifts. For example, while you don't want to deliver a pear tree and an actual partridge on the first day of Christmas, you may send a fruit basket that features pears and a floral arrangement. For the twelfth day, you could send an arrangement of roses that includes Christmas ornaments of drums.
Start Simple and End with an Elaborate Bouquet
You don't have to break the bank to have a grand celebration from the twelve days of Christmas. You may start by sending a single flower on the first day of Christmas. On the second day, send two flowers, and so on. For smaller gifts like a single flower, you will need to get those from the florist yourself and deliver those to your beloved in person.
You may choose to give different flowers on each day. You could theme them to all be a different kind or color. If your loved one has a favorite flower, you may wait to give that flower for the twelfth day of Christmas. Then, on the twelfth day of Christmas, present a grand bouquet that features twelve of their favorite flowers.
Finally, you are only limited by your imagination when deciding how you want to celebrate the twelve days of Christmas with flowers. Don't be afraid to ask your florist for suggestions, too. When you celebrate with the beauty of floral gifts, you will be giving your loved one something completely unexpected, and you may spark their interest in celebrating the twelve days of Christmas each year.
