Splendid candles glowing warmly, vibrant floral décor and joyous gatherings. These are just a few of the ways people celebrate the wonderful festival of Deepavali.
What is Deepavali and how do people celebrate this festival?
Deepavali, also known as Diwali is the equivalent of the Hindu New Year. Widely called the Festival of Lights, it is highly symbolic of the triumphant win of good over evil and the tremendous victory of good over evil. This year, Deepavali takes place on November 14th.
Diwali celebrations are vast and plentiful. After cleaning and / or renovating their homes, celebrants decorate their surroundings with brightly lit, multicoloured, intricately patterned oil lamps called diyas. Those with a dab hand at art may create rangoli, beautiful stylistic quartz powder art on the ground.
During the festival itself, celebrants don their finest clothes and perform a worship ritual by offering puja to the Hindu goddess of prosperity and wealth, Lakshmi. Setting off fireworks, holding lavish feasts with family and friends, as well as exchanging gifts are all jubilant practices during the festival.
Since brilliance, brightness and vibrance are common themes for Deepavali, the gift of flowers are perfect for this festival. Not only are floral arrangements stunning to look at, they also make amazing décor to place around the newly cleaned home. Beautiful blooms also connotate cheeriness, optimism and a fresh start to the new year.
What are the best flower choices for Deepavali?
Finding pretty flower arrangements for Deepavali is not hard, but finding unique flowers would make the celebrations extra special and memorable. Although there are tons of brightly coloured flowers you could get at your local florist, picking specific flowers with symbolisms attached can better convey your best wishes to others at Deepavali.
Here are our three top choices of Diwali flowers to look for:
Gerberas: A burst of sunshine and cheerfulness, bold and bright gerberas are just the blooms you need to light up the party. These large daisies are widely known for their gorgeous colours and the grand number of petals surrounding the pistil allow them to resemble the brilliant sun. Their connotation of happiness, purity and innocence make them the perfect gift for the light-loving festival. Choose Gift Flowers Singapore’s delightful mixed GERBERAS WITH VASE (S$75.00) for Deepavali 2020. Placed in a clear glass vase, this versatile gift is for anyone, even those who are not usually green-thumbed.
Roses: These elegant beauties are the most popular choice of flowers to gift at any occasion, and there is perfectly good reason for it too! With their unique petal arrangement and grace, roses are incredibly charming and universally adored. Be it a family member, a friend or an acquaintance, no one can ever say no to the gorgeous gift of roses. They are an especially thoughtful gift to give at Deepavali, as it shows how much love, care and consideration you have for the recipient. Orange roses or bright red roses, like our NOBLE RED ROSES IN ROUND FLOWER BOX (S$230.00), consisting of 35 – 40 stems, are the best for depicting the warmth in your heart.
Eustomas: For a gentler, yet just as important approach to flower gifting, eustomas are your ideal choice. A symbol of peace and contentment, these delicate, ruffle-petalled lovelies are sure to delight any recipient on the spot. Simple and subtle, it is a lovely flower gift that expresses your love and well wishes in the sweetest manner possible. A small gift like MINI EUSTOMA BOUQUET (S$105.00) is more than enough to put a smile on their faces.
