Flowers have played an important part of our history, our culture and our traditions as far back back as history records. There are flowers in ancient Egyptian burial ceremonies and floral bouquets are evident in Greek mythology. Flowers were painted during the Renaissance, and in the Victorian era, flowers were actually used as an unspoken language between lovers otherwise forbidden to communicate.
Although a hastily gathered bouquet of wildflowers can be quite beautiful, the art of floral design has also played a large role in our culture and traditions. Floral Design Day, celebrated on February 28, was instituted in honor of Carl Rittner, considered the father of floral design education. The founder of The School of Floral Design in Boston, Rittner is credited with elevating floral design to an art form – and a beautiful one at that.
Flowers are naturally striking by design, but the experts at Ah Sam Florist love to create inspired arrangements that are true works of art. This bouquet, aptly named Beautiful, has blended orange tulips, green orchids and white lilies in an architecturally gorgeous display.
In honor of Floral Design Day, have our designers create a one-of-a-kind bouquet just for you! Choose your price level, and we will channel our creativity into a personal, unique and beautiful arrangement. These flowers are like having a living art piece in your home or office.
At Ah Sam Flowers, we are passionate about flowers of all kinds, and about arranging every bloom – be it sunflower or orchid – into an original masterpiece. If you have a meaningful event coming up in the near future, or a special friend you would love to honor, come into our San Mateo shop to discuss the artistry of flowers.
