A Warm Welcome to the Neighborhood
There are few flowers as beloved as orchids. They are well known because of their beauty, but they are also a flower of many meanings! Orchids hold unique and heartwarming symbolic messages. Pink Orchids signify joy and happiness. Yellow indicates rebirth and new beginnings, and green orchids are believed to bring luck, fortune, and blessings.
One of the rising stars of the houseplant world is the Monstera plant, and for a good reason too. Monstera plants hail from the tropics and are known for their wide green leaves that are shaped by natural holes and edges and that give them a refreshing and tropical feel. It is because of this shape that the plant is colloquially known as the “swiss cheese plant.” It is also known for symbolizing honor, respect, and longevity.
Any neighbor would be happy to receive a lucky bamboo due to its fun and light-hearted appearance. As the name would imply, they are thought to bring good luck and fortune. It is also tied to harmony, happiness, and peace. A lucky bamboo plant sends a great message and is a beautiful and unique plant.
Similarly to the “lucky bamboo,” the peace lily is straightforward with its purpose, and with a name like that, it’s hard not to feel calmness, zen, and peace around it. The peace lily has beautiful white blooms and grand green leaves that make it one of the most dazzling plants on this list.
Sometimes the best way to say hi is with a bold statement. Peonies are certainly bold and are perfect for celebrating big changes like starting a new job, moving to a new home, or starting a new marriage and symbolize love, joy, wealth, good fortune, and happiness in marriage. Gifting peonies to say “hello” to your new neighbors is a great way to send them best wishes.
Nothing is as welcoming and bright as a lovely sunflower bloom. Following the sun, its golden yellow petals add a ray of sunshine to any home and make a wonderful gift. Sunflowers symbolize peace, love, optimism, happiness, and longevity. Sunflowers make an ideal housewarming arrangement.
With ancient symbolism and a history as old as time, Lillies make a fantastic housewarming gift that any host would be delighted to receive. Like orchids, these flowers derive unique meanings from the different colors they bare, with pink lilies representing prosperity and yellow lilies representing joy.
Daffodils are a popular springtime flower known for their beauty and for symbolizing rebirth and renewal. Their cheerful and quirky appearance makes them a wonderful gift. It is their unique appearance that led to them representing chivalry or being courteous and thoughtful like a good neighbor.
