DETROIT, Dec. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The winter holiday season is the No. 1 floral-buying time of year. With that in mind, Wesley Berry, President of Flower Delivery Express www.flowerdeliveryexpress.com, a major online floral delivery company, has teamed with the host of Discovery Channel's Surprise by Design, Rebecca Cole, to showcase the floral trends that will give homes a festive feeling this holiday season.
"Because we're returning to our roots and hosting intimate celebrations at home, we'll see more traditional colors, and greenery, whose scents will bring us back to our childhood," said Cole, who also is a contributor to the Today Show.
According to Berry, great holiday arrangements begin with greenery. "In ancient cultures, people believed that bringing foliage into the home during the season was lucky and guaranteed the return of vegetation in the spring. Even today, green remains a staple in holiday decor."
Rebecca's Tips for Sprucing Up Your Home:
According to Cole, "Whether it's a gift or for home decor, 'colorful greenery' is a thoughtful and long-lasting way to send holiday cheer."
Poinsettias are often part of greenery arrangements. Flower Delivery Express carries a wide selection of poinsettias in pink, peach, white, plum and speckled or marbled varieties, in addition to the traditional red.
Gifts of Abundance
According to Berry, the trend in floral purchases seen by Flower Delivery Express this year ranges from wreaths to centerpieces, bulb plants and topiaries.
Popular Holiday Florals
Cole has this advice for creating festive, colorful tables for dinner, brunch or even cocktail hour.
