January Flower of the Month

Carnations are known as the traditional birth flower for January.

This sturdy, ruffled bloom represents good luck and comfort. Available all year round and in a wide variety of colors, carnations are much more than a filler flower!

Up the visual impact by displaying only 1 type of flower in a vase at a time. A vase of carnations creates a full and lush look to any decor!

Carnations, like roses, are often used in symbolic gestures. Some colors are commonly linked to occassion/meaning:

*Pink - Mothers Day
*Red - Lust, Desires
*White - True Love, Purity

Whichever bloom you choose, be sure to celebrate with fresh flowers!

Best Wishes,
Miss Judy Bloom
