For 2014, Rosh Hashanah begins on September 24th at sundown and concludes at nightfall on the 26th. As you gather this year for the start of the new year, the flowers you bring will add beauty to your celebration whether your observance is traditional or informal.
Choose Flowers with Meaning
If you’d like to add subtle meaning to your floral gift or display basket, you’ll want to consider choosing flowers that symbolize abundance, excitement, and inspiration. As a time to look forward to a plentiful and flourishing year ahead, you may want to include Azaleas in your display.
A lovely blooming azalea basket will look gorgeous on your patio as you welcome guests to your home for dinner during Rosh Hashanah.
Using Color to Celebrate the New Year
The color of your flowers will also carry meaning, and will be a symbol for the new year. You may want to include vibrant greens in your bouquets, vases, or displays to symbolize good health, renewal, and hope for the new year.
If you’re going to be attending a friend’s Rosh Hashanah celebration, consider bringing a basket of bountiful green plants and lovely daisies in a delicate wicker basket. Your gift will be a lasting reminder of your wishes for the new year as green is a symbol of health and good wishes.
Celebrate with Far-Away Friends
If hundreds or thousands of miles separate you from your friends and loved ones, you may want to add a gift of flowers to the traditional cards you’ll send. If you’re not able to see mom in person this year, she’ll love receiving an autumn rose bouquet with delightfully scented roses in vibrant fall colors.
Choose a bright display of lilies, roses, and daisies to symbolize the optimism and hopefulness you have for your friends for the coming year. Let your friends know you wish the best for them as they celebrate Rosh Hashanah.
Pairing Flowers with Apples and Honey
If your celebration features the traditional gifts of honey and apples, you may want to inquire about adding a fresh fruit basket to your gathering. Beautifully wrapped in a festive display, a fruit basket is the perfect pairing for your beautiful Rosh Hashanah flowers.
As a time for new beginnings and the start of a generous year, Rosh Hashanah is a wonderful holiday to celebrate with the beauty of flowers. As a symbol of hope, renewal, and the wish for a rewarding new year, flowers are a wonderful addition to every celebration.
