Picking the Right type of Bouquet for an Occasion

Updated: Aug 20, 2019

Bouquets of flowers are the perfect and most versatile gift. They suit a variety of different occasions; birthdays, weddings, funerals, sickness and etc. Flowers denote the warm fact that the recipient is in your thoughts. However, the art of gifting bouquets is guided by the symbolism each flower carry. It is important that you are well-versed in matching bouquets to an occasion. After all, the last thing you want to do is send mourning flowers to a bride on her wedding day! Here are the most popular occasions bouquets of flowers are gifted and the style or flower which suit it best.

Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is a special day dedicated to couples in celebration of their special relationship. While red roses are the classic flower to symbolise love and romance, there are also other options. A white chrysanthemum symbolises devoted love and loyalty, conveying to your lover the solidified foundations of your relationship. A white carnation symbolizes a pure and chaste love while a primrose can represent the joys of young love. It is important to give thought to the colour of the flower chosen as it can convey the wrong message, for example a yellow chrysanthemum symbolises neglected love or sorrow.

Sympathy or Funeral Flowers

Before gifting sympathy or funeral flowers, it is polite etiquette to ask the recipient or family of the recipient whether they’d prefer flowers or a charitable cause. If they are inclined towards flowers, consider flowers that can be propped on the gravestone such as a wreath or condolence flower stand. Lilies are often a popular floral choice for funerals as they represent the restored innocence of the departed soul. Yellow roses are often gifted by friends of the deceased to represent their strong relationship and love for them.

Special Occasions

It can be difficult to know what bouquet of flowers to buy for someone on a special occasion. For birthdays, a popular flower is the daisy as it symbolizes innocence and modesty. The pink carnation could also be the perfect choice as it symbolizes gratitude. For Mother’s day, it’s best to pick her favourite flower. However, if you’re unsure of her favourite, carnations are once again a perfect choice as they are a great expression of love. If you’re invited to celebrate Christmas with someone, it is best to bring a live poinsettia. Its vibrant red and vivid green depicts the Christmas spirit perfectly. For those unsure of what to pick, our daily flower bundles are appropriately synced to the time of the year and provide a fuss-free but thoughtful gift.

Congratulatory flowers

Beautiful bouquets or flower stands are the perfect way to celebrate a milestone or significant point in someone’s life. Flowers and plants have been used for centuries to celebrate special moments. In Ancient Greece the best athletes were awarded olive leaf wreathes to celebrate their victories. Flowers are rooted in meaning and serve as a truthful reflection of your feelings. Almost all flowers that denote love, care and friendship can be used in congratulatory flowers. While flower stands are often gifted for Grand Openings, they can serve as weddings gifts, first house warming gifts and any major milestones in your dear ones’ life. Bouquets are a more subtle gift, yet they hold the same care and thought. They add a beautiful burst of colour in ordinary places, reminding the recipient of your care even when you’re not present. Flowers are the perfect way to congratulate someone and ensure you linger in their thoughts.
