You can now send birthday flowers online and by doing so add a special touch to this day that will surely be remembered with fondness.
Birthdays and Flowers
That lovely English poet, John Keats, starts his great poem Endymion with “A thing of beauty is a joy for ever.” He also concludes his Ode on a Grecian Urn with, “Beauty is truth, truth beauty — that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know”. It is universally acknowledged that flowers are a paragon of natural beauty, that humans can never hope to surpass. Even medieval Arabian architectures features filigree and carving work in geometrical floral patterns. This shows the human love for flowers has existed since ancient times. However even these carvings cannot show the true freshness of a bouquet, nor its scent or softness.
No wonder that before American commercialist-oriented capitalism, gifting someone flowers was a tradition in many parts of the world, including India. Flowers simply cannot be matched in their charm. However, this tradition was not completely lost, as roses are still gifted to loved ones on another, newer occasion, that is, Valentine’s Day. However, you can still make a new gesture that is sure to stay in the birthday girl’s or boy’s mind by gifting him or her a wonderful collection of his or her favourite flowers.
Moreover, gifting flowers is no longer tiresome or cumbersome because you don’t have to trudge along to a florist’s shop anymore, that is if you manage to find a florist near your area. You can arrange a special birthday flower delivery. At reasonable prices and with quality assurance, it has now become easy and quick to send flowers online.
‘Special memories for life’
Janhavi Patel is a college going student in Mumbai. She recently celebrated her 19th birthday with family and friends. She says: “I had an awesome birthday party. We cut a cake, and then I opened the gifts that my parents and friends had brought for me. Everybody had gifted the same things—a fancy pen, a mug with some thing clever written on it—I was so bored. It just ends up lying around the house, and no one uses it. Such gifts are good for the time being but end up being a waste of space.” However, her best friend had something novel planned for her. After the party, they went out for a short drive to a promenade facing the sea. They talked for a while, until finally all of a sudden, the birthday flower delivery person came through. “It was like magic!”, she says. “I couldn’t believe he got me such beautiful lilies. I won’t forget my nineteenth birthday because of that magical moment,” she added smilingly.
