Orchids are beautiful flowers. They evoke a romantic and peaceful feeling. They're calm, graceful, and elegant. Since they're not particularly easy to grow, they aren't necessarily the most basic or common choice for floral arrangements. Their unique style makes any display seem a little richer and grander, automatically. Furthermore, in Victorian times, they could only be found in exotic locales. This is an association that has lasted even till today.
Orchids are well-suited, in particular, for weddings or romantic holidays. They are associated with virility and fertility. Through many cultures and many times, orchids have been a flower of "love." One kind of orchid (Paphiopedilum) was even named after the temple of Aphrodite, the goddess of love. Also, pink orchids are traditional for a couple's 25th anniversary!
Like most flowers, the color you pick affects the meaning. For example, white orchids represent innocence and purity. In addition, they can also stand for elegance. Pink is feminine, as well as joy and grace. Conversely, yellow orchids do not have the same romantic connotation. As a result, they are perfect for a friend. Yellow reflects friendship, new beginnings, and accomplishment. Orange means pride and boldness. Purple is given as a sign of respect. Purple can also indicate admiration or signify royalty.
Orchids are also one of the first flowering plants. There is evidence that orchids are, at least, as old as the dinosaurs. Perhaps this is why they seem so timeless and eternal. In any case, the following 15 presentations will give you great inspiration for gorgeous orchid flower arrangements.
