Ever wonder what that flower is that you see during the holiday season? Well, we’ve got an answer for you! It’s a poinsettia and it’s actually a plant not a flower. We often forget about these beautiful plants throughout the year but then like clockwork they show up everywhere as soon as Thanksgiving is over. They are one of the main clues that Christmas season has begun!

We thought we would use our blog this week to fill our readers in on the intimate background of this special plant. Also, remember if you are looking for poinsettias this holiday season or any holiday flower arrangement...check out your local D.C. flower shops!

Now although you are all probably most familiar with the beautiful red shade that is often seen when you find poinsettias throughout the holidays, these plants also come in white, orange, pale green, cream, pink or marbled. And don’t forget about it’s gorgeous green foliage that comes along with any poinsettia! Although we are familiar with this cultural symbol of Christmas in United States, the plant is actually indigenous to Central America and Mexico. The plant did not actually come to the United States until the early 1800s when it was introduced by the U.S. Minister to Mexico. It was actually named after the U.S. Minister to Mexico, Joel Robert Poinsett.

In it’s earlier life, the plant was not a symbol of Christmas but instead used as red dye and medicine! Present day, however, it is a symbol of Christmas and in Mexico it literally means “Christmas Eve flower.” However, in other Central American countries it actually means “Easter flower” rather than a symbol for Christmas.

Ever wonder where the association with Christmas started from with this beautiful plant? It comes from a Mexican legend about a young girl who could not afford a gift for the celebration of Christmas. Instead she was inspired to gather weeds and place them in front of the church altar...despite this collection being only of weeds before she knew it red blossoms has sprouted from the weeds and became what we now know as poinsettias.

We also wanted to make sure our loyal Nosegay readers know how to take care of this wonderful plant if they do choose to pick one up for the holiday season. Look no further! We have advice for you. The first thing to keep in mind for these cold months is if you are taking it outside make sure to wrap it up because exposure to icy weather can upset the leaves. However, don’t leave it wrapped up too long! Make sure to remove the wrapping as soon as you have it back inside. These plants also enjoy as much sun as they can get so place them near a window. It is also does not need to be over watered! Only if the plant feels dry should you water it. Not following the instructions above could leave your red poinsettia turning yellow and losing its leaves before the holidays begin!

Hope you enjoyed our spotlight this week! Happy Holidays to everyone!

Everyone gearing up for the holidays? We thought we would spend some time going through gift ideas when it comes to doing your holiday shopping. Now some people might say this is too early but we say it’s never too early to start shopping! However, before you start shopping make sure you have a good idea of what your budget is so you don’t get tempted into buying something out of your price range. Here are some of our favorite ideas for the 2014 holidays.

 

Technology. Can’t go wrong with a new piece of technology for this holiday season. Make sure you know what the person you are buying for has and what they don’t. Some of our favorite ideas are...wireless speakers, an iPad, an iPhone 6 (or 6+), Bose headphones, and an Apple TV. Now these are just a few ideas when it comes to great technology gifts ideas for this season.

Homemade treats. Now if your budget is a little bit lower this season or you are looking for a gift to give out to a bigger group of people like for example, all your co-workers, I’d go the homemade treats route. Good ideas when it comes to these items are chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate bark with peppermint or nuts, homemade granola, or a spiced or candied nut mix. We love a lot of these options but our best suggestion would be anything with chocolate is sure to be a winner this holiday season.

Coffee Mug. Knowing how cold it has been across all of the U.S. already and it’s only the beginning of December we are sure that everyone is going to need a coffee mug or thermos this winter. Starbucks usually has good festive options so swing by and pick up something that’s sure to be easy and quick to get but someone will definitely enjoy receiving.

Jewelry. This is obviously one of our favorite ideas when it comes to giving gifts this holiday, however, it’s probably reserved for the ones buying for loved ones or close family members. There are plenty of great options out there when it comes to beautiful jewelry and just remember, diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

Gifts to make you relax. Think about how this person likes to spend their free time and relax and get them something to help them do it. Maybe it’s a spa day with a manicure and pedicure or massage and maybe it’s a happy hour with all their friends. Either way you can’t go wrong if it feels like an activity they would like to do but not necessarily something they treat themselves to.

A trip. Always a great idea to give someone a surprise trip for the holidays. Again, this is definitely something they wouldn’t normally treat themselves to. Our advice is to plan it for some place warm right in the thick of the winter. It’s always good to have a warm vacation to look forward to!

Sweaters, jackets, scarves, oh my! It’s going to be a brutal winter so help your friends, family and loved ones bundle up in style. There are plenty of options out there for this category and you really can’t go wrong. Gloves are also a good option!

Flowers. And our personal favorite for this season...flowers of course! The best way to say happy holidays without over thinking is sending a beautiful holiday bouquet. The best thing about flowers is that they have same day delivery flowers so if you run out of ideas for gift giving this year you can always fall back on flowers! Also if you don’t like flowers there are plenty of holiday gift baskets available to order online.

Hope you enjoyed our gift ideas from the team at Nosegay Flower Shop D.C. We are always happy to help our readers and want everyone to enjoy the gift giving season this year. Stay tuned for many more holiday inspired blogs this season!
