Frequently Asked Questions
Can you give flowers for Christmas?
Yes, you can give flowers for Christmas. Flowers make a great Christmas gift! It's easy to bring a smile to your recipient's face with a dash of fragrant greenery, seasonal winter berries, wonderful textural elements, and deep red and ivory white flowers. Flowers are also perfect for sending ahead of the holiday, when you want to make sure your loved one can enjoy multiple days or weeks of Christmas cheer before the actual day arrives. Trust Swenson and Silacci Flowers with your Christmas flower delivery in and around Salinas this year.
What are typical Christmas flowers?
Traditional Christmas flowers and plants include: Poinsettias, amaryllis, red roses, holly, ivy, mistletoe, and Christmas cactus. However, you don't have to stick with tradition when you send a floral gift for Christmas! We also love centerpieces and bouquets made with lilies, chrysanthemums, tulips, and elements like pine cones and fir boughs.
What flowers do you use for Christmas decorations?
At Swenson and Silacci Flowers, some of our favorite flowers to use for Christmas decorations are red and white roses, green chrysanthemums, cymbidium orchids, carnations, and tulips. However, you can use whichever flowers you want – even tropical birds of paradise, anthuriums, stock, or hydrangeas.
How should I arrange my Christmas flowers?
There are many different ways to arrange Christmas flowers! One option is to create a lovely low centerpiece with your favorite flowers and greenery. Then add a few tapered candles, bright ribbon, and accent pieces like pine cones, berries, boughs of holly or even a glittering ornament. Or, opt for a tall showpiece of Christmas flowers in a vase that makes a statement with curly willow and shiny bauble accents. The possibilities are endless when it comes to using Christmas flowers as decor.
What is the traditional Christmas plant?
Poinsettias are the traditional plants of Christmas. Although chock full of Christian symbolism, this plant is often gifted to the religious and non-religious alike. They come in many different color variations, including red, white, yellow, and pink. Some of our favorites are variegated varieties that feature a marbled or mottled mix of colors.
