Which Flower Arrangements Are Best To Say ‘I’m Sorry’?

‘Love means never having to say I am sorry’– this quote may be famous; however, we at Impala Flora disagree. The ability to pluck up the courage to sincerely apologise is one of the most important skills you will learn in life – and it especially becomes handy with the people you love.

It turns out that people who are able to bite the bullet and apologise are emotionally healthier than those who can’t. A study at MacEwan University in Edmonton found that people with low self-esteem feel worse after a conflict and are less likely to apologise for their role in the conflict. On the other hand, there is a strong correlation between good self-esteem and the ability to apologise. A University of Illinois study also found that people who apologise seem to fare better financially than those who don’t. Are you still putting it off? Then remember what William Shakespeare said, ‘Cowards die many times before their death.’ What he means is that putting off on apologising is more painful than actually apologising.

Of course, apologising can be terrifying. It is the type of thing people lose sleep over and continuously procrastinate on. If you are preparing for the difficult, awkward moment of apologising, consider taking a gift with you. Some great options include flower arrangements, edible gifts and hampers. Taking along a peace offering will show your sincerity and commitment to resolving the conflict.

Once you have your gift ready, be sure you deliver your apology in the correct way. The right way to say ‘I’m sorry’ is to state clearly what you are apologising for. Don’t minimise the situation or simply glance over what you did wrong. Write down and practice your apology so that you make sure you do not miss anything.

If you need flower arrangements, edible gifts or a hamper to accompany you on your apology, get in touch with Impala Flora today.

Did your loved one just welcome a new baby into the world? Congratulations! Having another person in your family or social circle is always exciting, especially if it is a beautiful little baby.

You may be wondering which type of flower arrangements to buy the parents. At Impala Flora, we specialise in all things flower-related. Here are a few ideas of which flowers to buy when you want to celebrate a new-born baby:

  • For Baby Girls
  • Daffodils and posies
  • Parisian pinks
  • Long-stemmed red roses
  • Pink Lilies
  • Pink hydrangeas
  • Violets
  • Lavender
  • For Baby Boys
  • Purple tulips
  • Yellow tulips
  • White roses
  • Daisies
  • Carnations
  • Delphiniums
  • Living plants

It does not really matter what type of flowers you choose to celebrate the new-born, as long as they are arranged in a beautiful bouquet. You can also consider putting the flowers in a pretty ceramic jar or basket that the parents can keep.

Traditionalists will tell you that the flowers should be sent to the hospital, but this is not always a good idea. Find out beforehand if you will be able to have flowers delivered to the hospital. If the new mom is not staying for a night or two, then you can have the flowers delivered to their home. Better yet, you can take the flowers yourself and see the new baby!

The birth of a baby is a life-affirming occasion and it often leads to a renewed commitment to the profound promise of life. Be sure you get the right flower arrangements for your loved ones by contacting Impala Flora today.

Is someone you care about going through a tough time? Illness can be devastating, especially if the person is unable to go to work or take care of themselves. It is not always possible to support people through their illness in a way that works for them, but everyone appreciates an unexpected flower bunch when they are sick.

You can share your heart’s feelings by having a flower arrangement delivered to their home or the hospital. Not only will this brighten their day, but they will have a nice-smelling addition to the room they are staying in while they recover. Some options to consider if you want to send get-well-soon flowers:

  • Cherry Blossoms

In Japan, cherry blossoms are synonymous with spring and new life. If your loved one is ill, cherry blossoms are a great way to tell them that better days lie ahead.

  • Daisies

If you are sending a get-well-soon card, then daisies are the perfect flower to accompany the card. Daisies are bright and cheery, and they match virtually any interior décor. Brighten a person’s day with daisies, which are guaranteed to stay fresh for a week.

  • Peonies

The beautiful blue, violet and lilac tones of peonies make them a great addition to any bedside table. This flower is a bit harder to find in certain areas and at certain times of the year, which will show that you put some thought and effort into your choice of flowers.

  • Pansies

An equally bold and bright option is pansies, which represent loving thoughts. The varied, striking colours make them uniquely beautiful.

Whether you are looking for flower bunches, edible gifts or hampers, Impala Flora has got you covered. Contact us for more information today.

Whether you are looking for hampers or delicate arrangements, our friendly team at Impala Flora is more than willing and happy to assist. Let us create the type of Valentine’s Day gift that sends the perfect message.

Why are Flowers Traditionally Sent on Valentine’s Day? 

We all know why we celebrate Valentine’s Day, but what is the significance of sending flowers? Legend tells us that in the 18th century, Charles II of Sweden introduced the custom of sending flowers to pass on a message. At the time, each type of flower had a specific meaning or sentiment attached to it, and so a message could be sent sending only a flower or flower bunches (and no actual note). Today, most flowers used as gifts symbolise fertility, romance, love, sympathy, luck and marriage.

Before you send flower arrangements or flower bunches, find out what the flower or plant typically symbolises. You might find yourself making better Valentine’s Day flower choices.

Add a personal touch to make it your own. Perhaps your backup buddies can all be holding bunches of her favourite flowers or brightly coloured flower arrangements.

  • Flash Mob Her!

You probably know that a flash mob is a performance put on suddenly by a group of people in a public place. You can tone it up or down, depending on your preference. If you haven’t seen the Isaac Flash Mob Proposal, you can check it out here. It is the perfect example of how you can use your family and friends to create a flash mob scene that says “Marry Me” in the most beautiful, yet fun way.  Try work in some flower petal throwing like confetti and don’t forget, you need flower bunches to spoil her with before and after!

  • Classic Proposal!

Not keen on anything too extreme? Like to keep things simple? Why not say it with flowers. Flower bunches, plants and flower arrangements are just a phone call away. Fill the house or room with her favourite flowers with a cute note attached saying “marry me”.

What better way to say “I love you” or “be mine” than by sending a bright bunch of delicate flowers and plants?

Avoid the Last-Minute Scramble for a Valentine’s Day Gift 

If you were caught last year scrambling for a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift, this year it is time to do things a little differently! Why not rather order your flower arrangements, plants, and bunches in advance this time around?

At Impala Flora, we have seen bunches of flowers, plants and arrangements of all sizes leave our store and head for their soon-to-be delighted recipients. What makes us so proud is that we have had a hand in helping someone spread the love. This year, we would love to help you spoil that special someone.

Five of the Best for Your Love

Of course, there are many types of flowers, arrangements and bunches to choose from. Below is our top pick of 5 flowers/plants that we recommend for Valentine’s Day:

  1. Roses – yes, this one is a bit obvious, but roses are indeed the flower of love and romance. If you’re not too keen on crimson red roses, try something a little different. Consider a gorgeous handful of yellow roses or even delicate white roses. All send a beautiful message of love.
  2. Proteas – these are elegant, strong flowers that typically symbolise diversity, courage, and transformation. They are the perfect Valentine’s gift – and will help to take your relationship to the next level.
  3. Gerberas – this plant is a type of daisy and is perfect to gift in a pot. This particular flower has several meanings, all of which point to happiness. If you are looking for a cheerful and bright way to say “be my Valentine”, the Gerbera is the perfect pick.
  4. Anthuriums – these are beautiful plants that are long-lasting too. The flower is shaped almost like a heart and symbolises good luck. If you are taking a chance on love, this is the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift.
  5. Spathiphyllums – these are also called “Peace Lilies” and they have many symbols associated with them. One of which is purity, which is perfect if you are sending Valentine’s Day flowers to a brand-new love (or someone you have been admiring from afar).

Hopefully, these top picks will help you to choose the perfect flower arrangements, plants or flower bunches for your love this Valentine’s Day. Need more advice or would like to place an order? Simply contact us via email or telephone at Impala Flora today.

Start off the New Year by sending the right message to your corporate suppliers, customers and industry colleagues. Nothing says “we’re set for 2019” like a hamper of branded edible gifts! And the recipient of such branded edible gifts and hampers are bound to be suitably impressed.

Branded corporate edible gifts are a fun and respectful way to treat and engage with your clients and business partners before you get into the real hard work of the new business year. Hampers, while strengthening your relationship with your clients (let’s be honest, everyone likes to feel appreciated and get spoiled), are also a great tool for creating lasting brand awareness.

  • Why Branded Edible Gifts Are Great For Networking In The Business World 

Corporate gifts play a pertinent role in networking as they help to build and strengthen relationships with clients. By giving a client or business partner a gift, it shows that they are valued and respected, and that you appreciate their support. Cultivating your business relationships in this way will build strong and long-lasting relationships that are highly beneficial to your business’ immediate and future success.

With edible gifts, you can nurture a loyal relationship with clients and business partners, making them less likely to move on or seek out other service providers/suppliers. If you work with a range of products, you could even incorporate these into your edible gifts hamper. That would add a personalised touch and demonstrate that you know your clients well and wish to treat them to your unique range.

  • Just How Much Thought Needs To Go Into Corporate Edible Gifts?

If you are creating branded edible gift hampers for important clients and colleagues, a bit more time and effort will need to go into piecing the hamper together. Choosing quality items is important. If you are investing in edible gifts for the general public, you cut back on costs and buy bulk items to be branded. These require a little less thought and personalisation.

If you are looking for awesome marketing and advertising ideas using hampers of branded edible gifts, you have come to the right place! You can chat with us about the various options available or you can place your order online.

Flower Arrangements and Flower Bunches for Parties

Flowers are a necessary part of the celebration and set the mood you want to convey at the function. Whether you are looking to create a lounge feel or just light-hearted fun, flower arrangements are ideal to create a good atmosphere for guests. You can enhance the one you are already in with flower bunches. They are transformational and beautifully suited for any environment. Flower arrangements come placed in beautiful vases with a variety of flowers and greenery so that it complements the office.

Bunches and bouquets are specifically designed to be elegant and give off a professional look. These can be used for more professional work environments and party themes. They can be given to guests after (or during) the event as a token of your appreciation for their hard work throughout the year. Flowers create a sense of beauty and give grace to the surroundings. Rose bunches are one of the most widely used decorative accessories in parties, whether it is formal or informal.

It is important to find a florist to help you plan and/or deliver right to your door. They will bring your creative ideas to life and deliver fresh, quality arrangements for the party day. Florists can create professional new ideas and insights about what flowers that best represent the office and create the desired theme. Online florists can save you time and money with their services. “Going Green” during your office party planning can also reduce waste and cleaning time after and allow for a more eco-friendly theme.
