If you don’t know what Putnam & Putnam is and can’t pick out a poppy from a peony, your floral knowledge is seriously lacking. However, if you can properly pronounce ranunculus and know that a mimosa is a flower–in addition to being a very important brunch beverage–you’ve got an above average appreciation for all things blossom related.
Now that it’s officially spring (according to the calendar, not the forecast), it’s also the ideal time to brush up on your petal power. A strategically placed bouquet can easily hide the fact that you haven’t started spring cleaning yet and a nice array of tulips makes for a delightful hostess gift. An artfully crafted arrangement can also double as a thoughtful birthday present, especially for the social media queens and kings out there. Just think of the selfie opportunities!
