Having a favorite flower is like having a favorite song, or a favorite poem. Not everyone has one, but if you do, it probably says a lot about you. Your personality is reflected in your choices, opinions and preferences, and your choice of favorite flower is no different. Plus, knowing what your friends, family and loved ones prefer means you can match them to their favorite flowers whenever you send them a bouquet.
It may surprise you to know that the floral designers at Mission Viejo Florist have favorites, as well. Of course we love working with all of our gorgeous blooms, but certain varieties top the charts for their colors, style or what they add to every design they’re in. Here are some of our favorite flowers and why we’re thankful for them.
We love the transition sunflowers provide between summer and fall. Bright and cheery, sunflowers are a favorite for their bright color and hint of sunshine. With large, open faces filled with brown, white or green centers surrounded by layers of smooth yellow petals, sunflowers are the life of the party, just like the people who admire them. We love spreading the cheer, as well, so these blooms, like we use in our Horn of Plenty bouquet, communicate our optimism and adoration for our customers. Send sunflowers to brighten anyone’s day, or place them throughout your home for a happy pick-me-up.
The sheer variety associated with roses makes them our favorite. For their endless shades and colors, their classic beauty and signature fragrance, roses are among our favorites. If you love roses, too, you’re probably on the traditional or romantic side, striving for perfection and bringing out the best in everyone around you. Send our gorgeous Essence of Autumn bouquet to your favorite traditionalist to celebrate their style.
While we’re thankful for autumn flowers around Thanksgiving time, we also admire tulips as one of the first signs of spring! These delightful blooms announce spring and add cheery color to any room. We also find tulip lovers to be sweet people who easily adapt to change and love travelling. These smooth, bell-shaped blooms on smooth, thick green stems bring a distinct air of springtime to any bouquet. Tulips are as versatile as the many colors in which you can find these delightful blooms. Choose a tulip-filled bouquet like our Tulips Together design to send to your favorite tulip lover.
Perfect for any occasion, alstroemeria, otherwise known as the Peruvian lily, Lily of the Incas, or Parrot Lily add color and plenty of gorgeous texture. Available in so many beautiful colors like orange, pink, rose, purple, red, yellow, white and peach, these beauties go with just about any bouquet or flower combination. Alstroemeria represent friendship and devotion, so a bouquet featuring alstroemeria, like our Lovely Lavender bouquet, is a perfect gift to send your best friend.
The small, smooth berries make an excellent filler for floral bouquets, especially during the fall and winter months. Available in red, green or white, these gorgeous little accents add so much texture to any floral design, providing a little something different than the flowers themselves or the foliage that supports them. We love to transition from summer to fall by including fresh hypericum berries in our seasonal designs, like in our Soft Serenade Rose Bouquet.
We love to add fresh color, fragrance and texture to our floral designs, and we hope you love the designs we create as well, When you find the perfect flower that speaks to you, surround yourself with those blooms and send them to friends and loved ones. At Mission Viejo Florist, we find that life is just too short to forget to stop and smell the flowers.
