Plants & Flowers for Housewarming Gifts

Housewarming gifts are traditionally given for two reasons. Either you have a loved one celebrating moving into a new home, or you have a new neighbor who you would like to welcome with a gift. Either way, plants and flowers are a beautiful way to congratulate the new resident – they warm up any space, and add color and vibrancy like no other gift.

Central Square Florist has been providing living home decor to Cambridge and Boston residents for decades, and we have some amazing options for your friend’s new place.

The History of Housewarmings: Before electricity, friends and family would bring a very practical gift to someone when they moved into a new home – firewood to stock the fireplace. This tradition is considered to be the origin of housewarming parties, and was quite literally meant to keep the house warm. Today’s gifts are meant to do the same thing, only figuratively. Flowers and plants warm up the ambiance and make every room more homey.

Bringing a housewarming gift to your new neighbor is a thoughtful gesture that is sure to be greatly appreciated. But what do you bring over to a home you’ve never seen? Green plants, dish gardens and flower baskets are wonderful ideas that will fit into virtually any homes decor, and can also be used indoors or out for much of the year.

You may also wish to consider an orchid. The graceful bloom and elegant stature of the orchid provides style and beauty which can blend into any room seamlessly. Whether on a kitchen windowsill, a living room table or a desk in the study, the orchid is an easy decor piece to add.
