When a flower arrangement filled with gerbera daisies arrives, a smile soon follows. Gerberas are long-lasting and best known for their brightly coloured petals. These beautiful plants are perfect for a gift as they bring joy to all who behold them – and they add a splash of vibrancy to any room. Here is why you should pick Gerbera daisies as a heart-warming gift that will add bright splashes of colour to a room for a fraction of the cost of live flowers.

  • They Brighten Up A Room

Even just a single bloom in a vase can brighten a room. With stunning colours of the gerbera ranging from vibrant purples, reds, pinks, oranges, yellows, creams and white, this plant is very special. They can cheer anyone up who is having a bad day and they will definitely add a sense of liveliness to a dull environment.

  • Each Daisy Has A Meaning And Significance

The colour of the Gerbera has a special meaning, so you can choose the recipient’s favourite colour or choose a colour based on the type of relationship you have with them.  You can choose between:

  • White – means honesty and innocence,
  • Yellow – reveals the desire to impress,
  • Orange – tells the recipient that they bring sunshine into the giver’s life, and
  • Fiery red – means passionate love.
  • They Are Long Lasting

Gerberas have a long flower vase life and are great to add some colour to any room or garden for a long period of time. Just make sure that you do not leave it dry, especially when the Gerberas are growing. Add some water to the drain of the pot. If replanting, the Gerbera seeds must be planted in small pots, until they get big enough to transfer them into flower beds.

Nothing says “thank you” like a beautiful arrangement of flowers. They are perfect for when you want to show how grateful you are for a tiny favour or if you are trying to express a sentiment to someone you care for. You can get your message across perfectly with a gift of potted plants, flowers and roses. Here are some thank you gift ideas for that special someone:

  • Rose Bunches

A bouquet of roses in full bloom represents gratitude. Pink, peach and yellow are especially good colours to show appreciation with. Pink roses symbolise admiration and friendship, peach roses symbolise appreciation and yellow roses symbolise joy and friendship. Send sweet-smelling roses individually or in a bunch along with a personalised card for that extra touch.

  • “Thank You” Pot Plants

A pot plant is a small and intimate way in which to say thank you. Pot plants also last longer and they show your commitment to the person. Bellflower plants, Gerbera and Spathiphyllums are ideal choices. They generally come in white, blue, purple and pink, and the tall stalks complement other flowers very well. Campanulas are perfect to represent gratitude.

  • Flower Bunches

Chrysanthemum and Iris flower bunches:

  • Choose chrysanthemums if you want to thank someone for their friendship. They represent cheerfulness and are available in a rainbow of colours so that you can send the recipient their favourite colour.
  • The iris is another flower perfect for saying thank you. They are available not only in purple but in white, blue, peach, pink and bi-colour.

Impala Flower Plants And Flower Bunches

Impala Flora has a diverse range of plant baskets available to say thank you to that person or group or people for a job well done or for an act of kindness. Plants can be repotted to grow and bloom throughout the season. You can save time from going to nurseries or flower stores by ordering online.

Here is a range of rustic fall flower bunches to inspire you on the big day:

Autumn Flower Arrangements And Bunches

  • Orchid Bunches:

Golden orchids are perfect for an autumn affair. Freshly picked orchids, garden roses, mini carnations, scabiosa and blueberry branches, wrapped in a lace ribbon are perfect for a wild, yet romantic bouquet.

  • Mixed Rose Bunches:

Mixed rose bunches are perfect for bridesmaids or flower girls to sprinkle along the wedding aisle. Red, white and even yellow roses are bright, fresh and look gorgeous when the bright autumn sun is shining.

  • Lilies, Carnations And Hydrangea Flower Arrangements:

Rich, bright tones are an autumn favourite and these flower palettes are perfect for weddings. Deep Lilly blooms along with a mix of flowers with reds, pinks, purples and blues make for a bright and rustic autumn feel. Mix up lots of floral tones and textures for added interest – and to make sure the palette is still beautiful and interesting.

  • Lavender Arrangements:

Lavender is the flower of the season. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but its calming aura is also perfect for the big day. Add lavender to a bouquet comprised of rich garden florals, shades of blush and champagne hues for the perfect combination of romance and the outdoors.

Stumped when it comes to thinking about the perfect birthday gift for a loved one or family member? You can’t go wrong with a versatile hamper! Here are our top tips for putting the perfect hamper together. Making sure that the birthday boy or girl feels ultra-special and appreciated has never been simpler.

  • Get Creative 

While you can choose to create a themed hamper – for example, a bath time hamper filled with bath essentials like lotions, scrubs and bubble bath, most people will appreciate a hamper that is a little more varied. Include all sorts of products for pampering, along with a selection of delicious edible gifts, like chocolate or yummy biscuits.

  • Choose the Base Wisely

Putting a hamper together for a new mommy? Instead of using a traditional basket to carry all of the items, why not put them in something more useful like a baby bath, a potty or a laundry basket? If the classic look is what you’re after, be sure to choose a sturdy basket – hampers can get very heavy very quickly!

  • Decorate 

You can make your hamper look amazing by decorating it with flowers or wrapping it in see-through plastic and tying off with a lovely ribbon or bow. Remember, half of the appeal is in the presentation!

  • Quality is Better than Quantity 

Only buy items that you know are of good quality. While a massive hamper may look impressive, if the items inside aren’t useful, it defeats the whole object of the gift.

Save yourself time and money by allowing us at Impala Flora to take care of your birthday hamper needs. Choose from a wide selection of favourites, with the option of customising your very own. Contact us now to learn more.

We all know how challenging it can be to think of the perfect gift to give someone on a special occasion. The good news is that, in most cases, you don’t have to think further than a classic flower bunch, flower arrangement or houseplant! Here are 5 different occasions when these are certain to put a smile on the receiver’s face:

  1. Congratulations 

A beautiful bunch of flowers is the best way to congratulate someone on an achievement. Whether someone has just graduated or been promoted at work, every time they look at the flowers, they will be reminded of their success and feel those proud emotions all over again.

  1. New Baby 

When you’ve just had a baby, it’s safe to say that you don’t get out of the house much – at least for those first few weeks! You can bring the joys of the outdoors to those sleep-deprived parents by giving the gift of a beautiful flower bunch or generous flower arrangement. The lovely aromas are also sure to lift the spirits during those lonely night-feedings.

  1. House Warming 

There is no doubt that fresh plants and colourful flowers breathe life into a home. What better way to welcome someone into his or her new living space?

  1. Get Well Soon 

There is something about plants and flowers that help you to feel healthier the second you see or smell them. No wonder they’re the perfect ‘get well soon’ gift.

  1. Birthday 

Spoil the birthday girl or boy with a new plant or flower arrangement. Pair with a card as a loving, finishing touch.

A funeral is a time to honour and celebrate the memory of a loved one who has passed away. Did you know that the specific funeral flower arrangements that you choose actually have very specific meanings? We take a look at a few of the most popular types of funeral flower arrangements below, as well as the relevant meanings behind them:

  • Carnations 

These flowers are extremely long-lasting, which emphasises the fact that the memory of the deceased loved one will always remain. Pink carnations, in particular, are also known to symbolise remembrance, whereas white carnations symbolise a pure, untainted love.

  • Roses

Roses are popular flower arrangements chosen for a wide range of events, including funerals. Red roses are most commonly known for symbolising love, but they also convey respect and courage. Pink roses are said to signify appreciation and white roses, reverence.

  • Lilies 

Lilies are arguably the most popular flower arrangements for both weddings and funeral. Not only are they gorgeous, but they emit the sweetest aroma that has been proven to lift the spirits. They also symbolise purity of the soul.

  • Tulips 

Stunning yellow tulips symbolise a fresh, new start, which makes them the perfect choice to use in funeral flower arrangements. They are commonly paired with daffodils, creating a cheery, hopeful aesthetic.

  • Orchids 

Orchids, like carnations are known for their long-lasting properties and, as such, symbolise a never-ending love. No wonder why that they are also go-to choices for funeral flowers.

Need help choosing the right funeral flower arrangements? The Impala Flora team is here to help you honour those most dear to your heart. Contact us today for assistance and for more information about our customised flower bunches.
