Tips on Picking Flowers for Congratulations
Here are some tips to help your find the perfect flowers that convey your heartfelt congratulations. First, keep in mind the recipient’s favorite flower or favorite colors. This shows you really invested time and energy to choose the flowers that he or she can really appreciate. If you don’t know their favorite color, perhaps their personality can lead the way. Bold and enthusiastic individuals may enjoy the bright and vibrant colors found in flowers like tulips, roses, and lilies, while more subtle hues can be found in freesia, hyacinth, and french tulips. Again, if you don’t know their favorite color, perhaps pick a color theme that matches the occasion--if they’re graduating, find flowers in their school colors; if they’re welcoming a new baby, choose pink or blue flowers (or keep it neutral with yellow); if they achieved a difficult goal, send red flowers which are often associated with power and strength.
Exotic potted plants, such as a Potted Phalaenopsis Orchid and unique Bonsai trees make excellent congratulatory gifts. Both of these offerings make excellent congratulation gifts for promotions, graduations, and home purchases, as they can provide fresh decor to go with that new office, dorm room, or mantlepiece. These aren’t your everyday flowers, just like the congratulatory event.
If you still can’t quite decide on particular congratulations flowers, choose a big mixed bouquet and take a few extra steps to make sure the presentation is beautiful. If arranging your own, use a nice ribbon and include a special note. Or, choose a vase that matches for an all-inclusive gift that requires no work or additions on the recipient’s side. These little details add even more thoughtfulness to the gesture of saying congratulations with flowers.
