Flowers to Celebrate the Lunar New Year

Posted by

This is the year of the dog, and it’s thought that anyone born under the sign of the dog will have traits of loyalty, friendliness, and kindness and will be honest, easy going, and helpful. How are you going to celebrate the Lunar New Years? On each Lunar New Year, which is February 16th this year, it’s traditional to decorate with flowers. But not just any flowers, ones that represent rebirth, growth, and prosperity. We hope that each of you have a year full of good luck and wellbeing. To decorate your home this year, use our flower delivery service and we’ll bring you a beautiful flower arrangement with the perfect flowers.


Welcome guests into your home with a beautiful arrangement of azaleas. The bright pink, red, or purple flowers are meant to represent thoughtfulness and abundance of beauty and intelligence. Place them at the front of your home to invite happiness, harmony, and balance. Choose a red flower, which is the traditional color the Lunar New Year. Our flower delivery service will make sure they don’t arrive in a black container, which signifies a death threat!


Your home will have a year of prosperity when peonies are around, which symbolize riches and honor. This flower also blooms in pink, red, or purple and is an official emblem of China, which translates to “most beautiful.” The flower is also associated with femininity, good luck, and fortune. An arrangement of peonies will remind you to act with respect and to always honor those around you.

Water Lilies

A great choice for the Lunar New Year, the flower is meant to mean rebirth, optimism, peace, purity, and enlightenment. Commonly seen in lakes, ponds, and streams, water lilies can begin to grow again even after the water has dried up. Place a water lily in a bowl of water for a peaceful appearance and calming effect.


This fascinating flower has a long history and many interesting facts to go along with it. They represent abundance and is a popular gift to give during New Year celebrations. Orchids grow in many different colors and some even have several colors, so choose a favorite color or one that complements your home’s decor. The flower also represents fertility, thoughtfulness, and charm.
