FLOWERS NEVER LAST BUT THE IMPRESSION DOES

Graduation Bouquet

When graduation comes to mind, many would imagine themselves decked in stunning graduation mortar boards and gowns; striding onstage to receive their hard-won certificates. This is sometimes followed by the soft, resonant thrum of a cello, and peals of applause. While for some, this celebration simply marks the end of a chapter.

Regardless of our perceptions, most would agree that this event bears much significance. This is especially so, when one thrives in an academic-centric society like Singapore. We have to bear with its implications: the pressure to do well, the impending exams, the frequent burning of the midnight oil… and so much more. Also, for many, the grind never stops. Hence, it is no wonder why graduation is welcomed with open arms, as the grand finale of a long ordeal.

Graduation Bouquet

Presently, one is considered lucky to have a graduation ceremony, let alone a physical one, though. Due to the COVID-19 situation, attendees have had their convocations cancelled and/or postponed. Alas, attempts to curb and fight the spread of the virus have come with a great cost.

Delineating the ‘work’ from the ‘home’ with flowers

With the work from home mandate back in action, we thought this would be a timely article to help us spruce up our work (and home) environment and make the next few weeks as enjoyable as it could be.

Now that work and rest are forced to be within the same space, it is actually quite important that we learn how to segregate these two realms properly, so that we can create an optimal environment for each activity and do our best at both.

This segregation could take the form of an actual demarcation if you’ve got the space for it, but we understand that majority of us just haven’t got the room to create two separate environments for work and rest. As such, one way to work around having just one space, is to create different set-ups for work and rest, such that we gradually learn to condition our minds to associate each set-up to its intended activity and concentrate on that activity only. Creating associations between the environment and the task is a good way to teach ourselves to be fully present in the intended activity, which is one way to set ourselves up for success regardless of which activity we are doing.

A flower so gentile and fragile. Simple yet majestic. A cluster of long straight stems that branch out to show off tiny white buds of flowers that, together, form a lacy cloud.

Especially with its versatile nature, the flower gives much room for artistic freedom. Its simplicity allows it to be a great bouquet filler – it provides the bouquet with good volume while allowing the main flowers to shine. It is also intricate enough to be the main star of the show.

Mother’s Day in Singapore – Making it just a little more special

mother’s day flowers

As Mother’s Day approaches us once again this year, on the Second Sunday of May, do we ever stop to wonder: what is the ‘true’ meaning of celebrating Mother’s Day? How is it traditionally celebrated and how may we celebrate it in our own ways?

In the UK, the English celebrate Mothering Sunday, the fourth Sunday of Lent. Back in the 1700s, house servants were encouraged to return to their hometowns to spend time with their mothers— a custom that was inspired by an even earlier custom that involved people going back to the first church they had ever attended, or their “mothering” church. Today, still steeped in religion, many churches will give children daffodils for them to give to their mothers.

Meanwhile, in Ethiopia, daughters will prepare vegetables and cheese, while the sons prepare meat for the annual meal and celebration. This celebration is vibrant, and even includes singing, dancing, and story-telling!

Here in Singapore, the most popular method of spending Mother’s Day is to treat mum to a nice meal out, complete with delicious and decadent food in her favourite cuisine and often times gifts of flowers. For those who are not able to be with their mothers this year, there are always the florists who are able to send your message of love on your behalf. Mothers day Singapore delivery has become increasing popular especially during the pandemic, where large gatherings are not permitted.

Ways to express your love through flowers

Giving of Flowers

Flower gifting should hold a spot amongst the universal love languages. It is an act so commonly associated with the expression of love (be it romantic love, friendship, familial love), that if you see a person holding a flower bouquet, an immediate assumption would be that this lucky gal (or guy) is being appreciated by someone else. Unfortunately, it is also this very universality of flower bouquets that has made flower gifting seem uncreative, cliched and insincere at times. Especially with the younger generations priding themselves on innovation and uniqueness, we are afraid that flower gifting might sadly become a dying art. That would be an absolute shame because flowers and the meanings they carry are still one of the most beautiful forms of communication around. To bring back some of the former glory to this spectacular gift of nature, we have come up with some unique ways to express yourself through flowers.
