“Cover Me in Daisies” sings Katy Perry in her newly released song titled “Daisies.”
In the video, we see her in a diaphanous white flowing dress showcasing her pregnancy.
Of course, she was drawn to daisies since it’s the flower that represents purity and innocence. Isn’t that what children represent? Innocence. Purity. Hope.
We can’t help but be fans of Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom. Not only did Bloom propose to the singer on Valentine’s Day but the ring wasn’t square or predictable. (Like her). Bloom proposed to the award-winning singer with a beautiful ruby and diamond flower ring. That’s what you can expect from a guy whose last name is Bloom.
And now Katy is blooming with her little girl and her new album debuting August 14th.
In an In the House, Perry said “Daisies is a song about staying true to your dreams that you have for yourself and not letting anyone or any comment or any eye-roll take you off that track,” she said, noting that in quarantine, more than ever, “we get the chance to live our lives freely. We’ll want to go after all those dreams that we’ve kind of placed on the shelf.”
We love that positive message.
According to Billboard, the pop star also opened up her one-stop-shop this week, which offers 12 free multicolored bouquet options with beautiful names (that could potentially double as KP5 track titles), such as “Light In Your Life,” “Pink & Purple In The Sky,” “Sweet Escape” and “Heart & Soul.”
“Our goal is to provide the best virtual flower delivery service that can help you tell someone you care, you love them, you miss them, or simply thank them for believing in you. Select a bouquet you wish to share and write your personal message to go along with it. We’re sure you’ll be able to find the right bloom for just about anyone!” Perry wrote on the online shop’s landing page, with a sweet nod to her fiance Orlando Bloom. We think Katy’s Daisies is a great idea.
In fact, we at Flower Power Daily have a surprise for you too. With so many disappointments people are experiencing – from delayed graduations, birthday parties, weddings and life events – we’ve created and trademarked a concept called “A Bouquet of Delaysies” – an acknowledgment of disappointment with the promise of a better tomorrow. So when people sigh and dip into negative thoughts, they can reframe the experience as a “Delaysie.” We made up the name inspired by daisies.
This way when someone has a “Delaysie” – you can send a little gift whether it’s a candle, bouquet of flowers, a card or even jewelry. All under $25. We’ll be sharing more about it next week.
Since flowers both comfort and congratulate – we wanted to create something that lets people know you are thinking of them and give them a burst of positivity – just like Perry’s efforts with her song and shop.
In fact, we are going to send Katy Perry a “Delaysie” gift because she had to cancel her wedding but not her love. Flowers do remind us of the wisdom of patience and possibility and the option of always reblooming.
