Rosh Hashanah, also known as Jewish New Year, is celebrated in late summer/early autumn. This year, the Rosh Hashanah holiday falls from September the 24th to September 26th. While there is no official or specific flower that traditionally represents this time of year, the bounty of autumn and the energy of new beginnings can be used as guidelines for your gift selection. Any flower that exudes a rich, abundant or hopeful feeling can be the perfect choice for Rosh Hashanah. Here are some bright, blooming possibilities to inspire your Rosh Hashanah gift giving this year:
Sunflowers are a versatile bloom that can be appropriate for summer or autumn occasions. Their large size and sunny demeanor radiate summer energy, but gold and brown earth tones can signify autumn as well. Their jubilant energy can make them the perfect gift to ring in the Jewish New Year.
Orchids bring a joyfully elegant energy to any room in the home. As a Rosh Hashanah gift, they mark the occasion with the promise of new beginnings and an auspicious future. Despite their tropical origins, orchids actually need minimal watering and are fairly low-maintenance.
The rose is a classic gift flower and can be appropriate for a variety of occasions. While the red rose is traditionally sent to convey feelings of romantic love, roses can come in just about any color you can imagine. Consider sending white or blue roses to convey the energy of new beginnings and bright possibilities for the New Year.
While lilies are often associated with springtime and spring holidays, they are an appropriate gift for any new beginning. The majestic trumpet shape of Calla Lilies can help celebrate the New Year, and Stargazer Lilies offer pink and white vibrance. Lilies are also stunning as part of an arrangement, as shown in the Peoples Signature bouquet bursting with lilies, alstromeria, hydrangea, snapdragons and greenery.
The hydrangea is a flower of enduring grace and beauty. It can be white, blue, pink or purple, depending upon growing conditions. Its lush, round shape has been associated with gratitude and any sentiment that is sincerely heartfelt. Consider sending a hydrangea bouquet for Rosh Hashanah or a Precious Pink arrangement that combines hydrangea with tulips and roses. Peoples Signature also incorporates hydrangea.
The Rosh Hashanah holiday is about new beginnings; it ushers in the autumn season and the Jewish New Year. If you have family or friends that celebrate Rosh Hashanah, flowers are one of the most impactful ways to mark the occasion.
