Flower arrangement is a historical art that has been around for thousands of years. It began in medieval times when simple garlands were made. Now it's grown into something so much more and it's an essential part of many different cultures.
Are you sending someone a gorgeous flower arrangement? This is the guide for you, including a list of the best retailers to buy from, our top picks, and deals you need to check out before you buy.
To ensure that you pick the best flower arrangement every time, you should consider why you are purchasing the flowers. Are your flowers destined for a sweetheart, or will you be sending them to your mother to celebrate Mother's Day? By considering the intention of the gift, you give yourself the best shot at picking the best flower arrangement available.
When choosing your flower arrangement, you should take into consideration the meanings of flowers and their colours. Different flowers hold very different meanings and the colour of a flower can change its meaning entirely. For example, a simple rose can mean friendship, love, passion or family love, depending on what colour rose you send.
Standard flower meanings are as follows:
Birth flowers are also assigned to each month of the year, just as birthstones are. The following is the typical assignment of flowers for each birth month of the year:

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
