Unscented flowers

When Should You Choose Unscented Flowers?

Along with the delicate nature and visual beauty, the floral scent of flowers is one reason why we are in this “sweet” business. However, we absolutely appreciate arrangements of non-fragrant flowers every once in awhile. There are several reasons why you also might be looking for flowers without a strong smell.

  • The recipient might suffer from allergies and have a reaction with strong scented flowers. Some people are highly sensitive and can get headaches from the fragrance that some flowers produce.
  • In some circumstances, it is not permitted to send scented flowers to certain places, such as a nursing home or hospital. This is to ensure that other patients, residents or staff are not bothered by the scent, should they be sensitive to certain flowers.
  • For occasions that require you to wear or hold flowers for long periods of time (ie. prom, graduation, weddings), choosing an unscented flower will make the day more tolerable. Even the prettiest fragrances can get overwhelming after long periods of time.

Always be sure to check with the recipient and the building’s restrictions before sending highly scented flowers.
Or, to be on the safe side, choose an arrangement of unscented flowers if you’re not sure.

Luckily, flowers do not lose even the smallest amount of beauty if they do not produce a fragrance!

We have plenty of beautiful flowers to choose from at Brant Florist… the following are flowers without fragrance.

Asiatic Lilies

Asiatic lilies are a wonderful way to send your recipient a bouquet of colour, while being mindful about the scent.

This particular type of lily does not give off a strong fragrance, and they still bloom in all different types of colours. You can get this popular flower all year round, and it is a safe arrangement to send to any establishment.

This is a simple yet classic flower that has a very modest fragrance. This red amaryllis is simply beautiful, and does not come with an overwhelming scent.

Another flower that comes in an array of colours, the ranunculus is also a non-scented option. These smaller blossoms are often used in bridal bouquets as well as corsages and boutonnieres.

The humble fragrance of the ranunculus flower makes them tolerable to wear or carry around for long periods of time, such as with the corsage and bridal bouquets.

The Perfect Wedding Floral Arrangement

Imagining a wedding without flowers is almost impossible since they are the most basic decorating item of the wedding hall. Many people have tried to substitute flowers with other items such as balloons, but they have always failed in their objective. The essence that a flower can bring to your wedding is impossible to bring through any other gift. Flowers for delivery through online stores make sure that your wedding looks a mind-blowing one with the flowers of your choice. You can choose many flowers that are hard to get in the local stores from them.

The joy of getting something that is hard to get in the market makes you feel excited over the proceedings of your wedding. Arranging unique flowers is possible through these online stores but finding an appropriate decorator for them is not an easy task. Every decorator has a different image in its mind and mostly it is created by looking at what others do. This habit of your decorator might make your wedding decorations the same one. No bride and bridegroom would prefer that, and thus they make sure to go for unique decorators. There are many means of finding one such as you can get them locally or online.

Opt For Online Stores:

Online stores that sell flowers have with them decorators that know how to decorate appropriately with the flowers you have chosen. Buying good flowers but not decorating them would make your decorations look bad. While arranging flowers the size of the stems and the shape of the vase matters a lot. Once you miss out the appropriate size you would lose a beautiful arrangement opportunity. Flower bouquets delivery thus must be made keeping in mind the arrangements that you have made in the other parts of the hall.

Engage A Decorator:

Another thing that people often fail to understand is excessive demand. Since it is a wedding season, it is very natural to have excessive demand in the market for flowers and flower decorators. The most probable outcome of excessive demand is the lack in the supply that can leave you with no flowers also. In such a case all your plans for a perfect wedding would be spoiled. Thus make sure that you book your flowers in advance so that there is no lack of delivery option. Along with booking flowers, make sure to book a decorator also in advance because it might happen that your flowers have reached, and there is no man to decorate it.

Do the arrangements all according to the furnishing of the wedding hall. Mostly people go for white flowers as wedding halls have white walls. This myth of theirs regarding white flowers are best for white walls is a worthless one. You can decorate white walls with flowers of other colours also. One example is golden colour flowers. These look just marvellous in white walls and thus you must not miss out these while purchasing your flowers. The last advice is always to look for options rather than choosing flowers and decorators at a single look. With the ongoing wedding seasons there, are many in the market to give you the product of your choice. Thus, you must not fail to look at the other options also that might give you best flowers and decorations.

Spring Is The Meme

Hi there, it’s Ken Bolt from Brant Florist and being a florist, spring is, of course, one of my favourite times of year. Along with summer, fall, and winter, of course. Like most people, I generally claim the current, burgeoning season or the season that seems opposite of the one we’re in the middle of, to be my favourite. Taken as a whole, I suspect I like all seasons the same amount, just in different ways. In the heat of summer, winter’s chill seems like a far off blessing, but in the wet of spring, the more muted beauty of fall might seem more likeable. It’s all about perception.

But we’re coming into spring, so that’s the current topic of conversation. Easter flowers, seedlings, tulips, daffodils, April showers and the beauty and freshness of spring flowers is always a welcomed change! Online, of course, Spring is the Meme, with Facebook posts and tweets being all about how Easter is really from Ishtar and flowers don’t actually bloom now, but actually do so underground, or some other thing that is largely based on semantics or who’s historical perspective you’re asking for. Like most memes, it’s full of truth and expectation, but may not be completely accurate.

Take the whole “tulips come in April” thing. I hear a lot of that. It’s only true for very specific regions, though. While the green of the plants may poke through the soil in April, having actual tulips and other spring flowers blooming is unlikely unless you live in the Southern U.S.A. For most of us, tulips begin blooming in very late April and early May instead.

Still, Spring is the Meme and right now, it’s my happiest time of year. What with all the greenery sprouting, Easter Floral arrangements, people getting new lightness of being, and with less cabin fever being the norm. In a couple of weeks, of course, I’ll probably not like spring as much and be looking forward to summer with its predictable warmth and easier gardening.

Until next time,

Ken Bolt
