Consider These Fresh Flowers and Vibrant Plants for a Warm Neighborhood Welcome

If you have ever moved into a new home, then you are familiar with the stress and anticipation paired with the relief and happiness that might come along with it. Moving into a new neighborhood can be both exciting and difficult, as there are a lot of emotions and a very long to-do list or physical work. Here at Conklyn’s Florist, the best flower shop in Alexandria, we know the importance of having good neighbors and being a good neighbor right from the get-go. So, as soon as you spot those moving vans, why not introduce yourself and give your neighbor a warm welcome with thoughtful flowers and houseplants to ease their stress and brighten up their new home? 

A Warm Welcome to the Neighborhood

Orchids

Orchids are known for their graceful beauty and rich symbolism. If you want to extend your friendship, select a yellow orchid, which also signifies new beginnings. A green orchid is also an appropriate housewarming gift as it is believed to bring blessings and good fortune. These flowering plants are an ideal way to freshen up a new home while adding a sophisticated pop of color.

Monstera

Vibrant, showstopping, and tropical monstera plants create a relaxing island-life feel without transporting you to Hawaii. Instead, their unique leaves create a fresh and uplifting tone to any room while meshing with a variety of home styles and decor. These houseplants are also connected to honor, respect, and longevity. 

Lucky Bamboo

Lucky bamboo plants can infuse inspiration, happiness, harmony, peace, and of course, good luck into a new home. Since these plants often grow in interesting ways, lucky bamboo can even double as a living piece of unique art. Whether displayed in the kitchen, living room, office, or bedroom, you can never go wrong gifting a lucky bamboo to a new neighbor. 

Peace Lily

A peace lily’s bright green leaves and graceful white flowers create a zen atmosphere, easing stress and enhancing air quality. While these lovely houseplants are amazing home decor, they also symbolize prosperity, fortune, and good luck.

Peonies

With connections to a happy marriage, wealth, love, joy, goodwill, and good fortune, peonies are marvelous flowers to gift to new neighbors, especially if they are newlyweds purchasing their first home together. The peony is a fluffy and fragrant bloom that makes any bouquet ideal for a housewarming.

Sunflowers

Nothing says “welcome” like a sunflower’s large, yellow, round face waiting to greet you. As it follows the sun, this bloom is bursting with mood-lifting abilities, adds a pop of sunshine to the home, and signifies peace, love, happiness, optimism, and longevity. It’s the ideal housewarming bloom.

Stargazer Lilies

Like orchids, the significance and symbolism behind stargazer lilies rely on the color of their bold, daring, and exquisite petals. Yellow lilies represent joy, while pink lilies are said to bring abundance and prosperity. A mixed bouquet of lilies is a brilliant welcoming gift for new neighbors.

Daffodils

Blooming in the springtime, daffodils are symbols of new beginnings, which makes them ideal cheerful flowers for someone moving into a new home. Their unique, quirky, and trumpet-like appearance symbolizes chivalry or being courteous and thoughtful like a good neighbor.

The language of flowers can be pretty powerful, especially when using them as a means to welcome your new neighbors. Showing your hospitality is easy, especially when you have assistance from the experts at Conklyn’s Florist.
