Valentine’s Day History at OMNI FLOWERS

There are varying opinions as to the origin of Valentine’s Day. Some experts state that it originated from St. Valentine, A Roman who was martyred for refusing to give up Christianity. He died on February 14, 269 A.D., the same day that had been devoted to love lotteries. Legend also says that St. Valentine left a farewell note for the jailer’s daughter, who had become his friend, and signed it “From Your Valentine”. Other aspects of the story say that Saint Valentine served as a priest at the temple during the reign of Emperor Claudius. Claudius then had Valentine jailed for defying him. In 496 A.D. Pope Gelasius set aside February 14 to honour St. Valentine. Omni Flowers, Brampton  will be thousands of ROSES and flowers to celebrate this day. Love is in the air and say it with ROSES, OMNI ROSES.

Gradually, February 14 became the date for exchanging love messages and St. Valentine

gifts such as flowers. There was often a social gathering or a ball.

In the United States, Miss Esther Howland is given credit for sending the first valentine cards. Commercial valentines were introduced in the 1800′s and now the date is very commercialised.

Happy Marry Christmas with Poinsettias / Flowers

 

Poinsettia
A favorite flower in the Canada/United States is the poinsettia, with its beautiful, red, star-shape. It is called the “Flame Leaf” in Central America or “Flower of the Holy Night” and was brought here over a hundred years ago by Dr. Joel Poinsettia,  first USA ambassador to MexicoThe legend of the poinsettia comes from Mexico. It tells of a girl named Maria and her little brother Pablo. They were very poor but always looked forward to the Christmas festival. Each year a large manger scene was set up in the village church, and the days before Christmas were filled with parades and parties. The two children loved Christmas but were always saddened because they had no money to buy presents. They especially wished that they could give something to the church for the Baby Jesus. But they had nothing.One Christmas Eve, Maria and Pablo set out for church to attend the service. On their way they picked some weeds growing along the roadside and decided to take them as their gift to the Baby Jesus in the manger scene. Of course other children teased them when they arrived with their gift, but they said nothing as they knew they had given what they could. Maria and Pablo began placing the green plants around the manger and miraculously, the green top leaves turned into bright red petals, and soon the manger was surrounded by beautiful star-like flowers and so we see them today.A Christmas gift of flowers from OMNI FLOWERS in BRAMPTON, ON is sure to make any Christmas or Holiday celebration ‘merry and bright’!

GIFT BASKETS …all occasions

GIFT BASKETS ….All Occasions

The time-honored tradition of gift giving has been practiced by all societies, in all walks of life. Since the beginning of time, the giving of gift baskets has been a thoughtful means of expressing oneself. And whenever a gift is given from the heart, it becomes much more than just a gift.

The process of deciding what gift to give dates back as far as the Middle Ages.

Creating a win-win situation
Our ancestors soon realized that when someone wanted something they owned, it was time to put on the old thinking cap and figure out what item they’d like in exchange for it. Of course, in the Middle Ages, baskets were also used to carry most items,. Therefore–by default–baskets were the primary receptacles used to transport traded or bartered gifts.

Definition of “basket”
According to the dictionary, the word “basket” can mean several things. The most common meaning is “a receptacle made of interwoven material.”

When we hear the words “interwoven material,” we immediately think of grasses and reeds. Obviously, we then think basket. However, the word basket also means “a receptacle or container that resembles a basket in shape and use.”

The words “receptacle” and “container” greatly expand the imagination when one thinks how a gift basket might look or what it might be made of. We now know that a basket can be any type of container, not just a picnic basket.

Gift baskets will never lose their appeal
Today, gift giving continues for a variety of reasons. Topping the list is personal fulfillment.

Baskets-and other cool containers and neat receptacles–are the type of gifts that can be used over and over again, which makes a basket filled with gifts, or a gift basket, an innovative idea that presumably will never lose its appeal.

And that, my friends, is why a gift basket can never be just a gift and will never be just a basket.

At OMNI FLOWERS we prepare all kinds of gourmet baskets filled with ideas. We make baby baskets for new  born, fruit baskets and chocolate/ sweet baskets. Please visit us on www.omniflowers.com for your selection and quick delivery or call us at 905 451 2828.

Here you are, sweetheart, just to say how much I love you,” he says, laying a dozen red roses in the outstretched arms of the beloved, who is delighted. “I am so happy to have been with you these past five years, happy anniversary, babes. Thank you for our wonderful baby, you are the best, the bravest, most beautiful woman I know, you have made me so happy and given me the greatest gift a man could want.” “Happy birthday, darling, I’ve known you 20 years and you still love carnations, just as I still love you.  “I thought you needed cheering up, you’ve been so sad for three days, so these might help – I love you.” “I’m SO sorry I forgot your birthday yesterday, love, please forgive me?” The bouquet is so big, she can’t find enough vases, and resorts to sticking some of the flowers in a bucket. “Congratulations on your promotion, I am so proud of you, you are a star!” Whatever the reasons, sometimes flowers say a whole lot more than their innocent beauty suggests at first glance.
