Welcome in the New Years with a Baby

The tradition of using a baby to signify the New Years  began in Greece around 600 BC. It was their tradition at that time to celebrate the rebirth of the  god of wine, Dionysus, by parading a baby in a basket.

The early Egyptians also used a baby as a symbol of rebirth.

Modern tradition is to send flowers for the birth of a new baby. Many different style of gender specific bouquets include stuffed animals and balloons. The possibilities are endless. If you are sending flowers to the hospital you may want to keep in mind that roses may not be a good choice. The temperature of many hospital rooms is very warm, the roses may “blow” or open very quickly, therefore reducing the vase life. The above arrangement has gerbera daisies, balloons and a keepsake teddy bear. If you are sending flowers or a plant to a home try a dish garden . A  dish garden of assorted plants is nice,  you can watch the plants mature as the child grows.
