Sending Flowers Will Make Someone's Day

Mar 7, 2008
Flowers for special occasions are a very personal way of expressing your feelings. They can be formal for business associates or intimate for close friends. Deciding to send flowers is a beautiful way to say you care about the recipient and want to make them happy.

The most common reason to send flowers is romance. Early in a relationship, sending flowers signals a strong interest and is unmistakably romantic. The person who takes the time and trouble to select flowers with special meaning is also more likely to get a favorable response. Asking the person's friends or relatives what sort of flowers the person prefers is a smart move, and it also avoids the negative of triggering an allergy!

Many flowers have carried traditional meanings for centuries. Many people choose flowers based on the messages that they intend to send. Famously, red roses are a way to say "I love you." One red rose can send a message more effectively than a huge array of different flowers. Pink roses send the message that "I like you," if you're not yet willing to commit to red roses.

Music and theatre performances are also great occasions in which to send flowers. Dancers and other performers often receive flowers in bouquets on both opening night as well as other nights of performances. Flowers can convey the same meaning as a standing ovation but last a lot longer. Skating performances are a good example of performances receiving flowers. Many bouquets are thrown to the ice after a performance.

Meaningful life events are a wonderful time to send flowers. Birthdays are always a good choice and you can even send the number of flowers equal to the age of the person receiving the flowers. Anniversaries are also a good time to send flowers. Receiving the same type of flowers that your spouse sent to you for the very first time is so romantic! Another great time for sending flowers is for the birth of a child or a grandchild.

When you send flowers to a grieving family it shows that you are thinking of the deceased and showing your respect for the life they lived. Flowers are also appropriate to send if someone is suffering from illness. A gift of flowers shows that you are offering them encouragement and hope they get well soon. It is also nice for someone to receive flowers after things have settled down from funeral or hospital stay just to let that person know you are still think about them.

Flowers are a great way to brighten someone's day. What could be better than a bright floral bouquet in the middle of winter? Bringing flowers along to a hostess is always a much-appreciated gesture. Don't forget to recognize other special occasions with flowers. They are a great way to celebrate a graduation, new home or new job.
