Even Jessica Simpson Gets Flowers

By Wesley Berry

Sometimes superstars like Jessica Simpson seem so far removed from our world that we forget they also enjoy some of the simpler pleasures in life, like flowers. In fact, it would seem that celebrities send flowers for many of the same occasions and situations we "regular folks" do.

One occasion we know Jessica Simpson received flowers for was as an apology for potentially hurtful remarks made in jest by comedian George Lopez at this year's People's Choice Awards. The awards took place just weeks after Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey announced their pending divorce to the world. Lopez, who was apparently unaware that the awards show was Simpson's first appearance since the announcement, made this crack during an introduction: "The producers want to apologize to Nick Lachey, who could not be here because they didn't need any more seat fillers." Simpson was visibly embarrassed and uncomfortable when the joke was made. Lopez, who felt bad for making a joke at Simpson's expense, did his best to make up for the faux pas by sending Simpson a bouquet of flowers.

Flowers have universal appeal, regardless of our backgrounds, careers, economic situation, or celebrity status. They play an enormous part in our culture for all occasions from the birth of a new baby through to the death of a loved one. They are a symbol of love, caring, congratulations, support, gratitude, and, yes, apology. They're available in every color under the sun and at price ranges that are affordable to nearly everyone. And, they're so easy to buy or order. A quick call to the florist can have a gorgeous gift for any occasion on its way to your loved one in a matter of a day, and often even less.

Because of their broad charm, flowers make an excellent gift for those occasions where a gift is warranted, but you're not sure of what to give. For example, if you're invited to your new boss's house for dinner, you know you should bring a gift. Well, you could opt for a bottle of wine, but are you certain your boss has no issues with alcoholic beverages? A beautiful centerpiece is sure to be appreciated, and I've never met anyone who has issues with flowers. Or, perhaps you've been helped in some way by an individual you don't know well but you'd like to let him or her know just how much you appreciated the help. Again, flowers are an excellent way to say, "thank you."

So, you don't have to be Jessica Simpson to give or get flowers. You simply have to be you with something to say and a desire to brighten someone's day.
