Congratulations flowers to celebrate career milestones

When somebody you care about achieves something fantastic in their career, you should most certainly let them know that you are proud of them. When choosing congratulations flowers, you will need to make sure that you consider several factors. Here are some great ideas based on the nature of your relationship with the recipient.

Partner or spouse

If your husband, wife or partner have managed to snag that promotion they’ve been fighting for or they got a well deserved raise, you can choose just about any bouquet of congratulations flowers. However, you might like to add a romantic touch to it. If this is the case, red roses will always be the impressive winner.

Close friend or family member

For friends and family, you should avoid red blooms since they will be seen as romantic rather than congratulations flowers. Instead, depending on the recipient, you can choose pink, yellow, orange or even a bouquet of mixed blooms. Mixed flower arrangements that include several types of flowers and various colours are the best bet if you want to spread some joy. Bright colours are also ideal rather than pastels.

Child or younger relative

There is nothing more satisfying than seeing your child achieve. When they land their first job or when they finally get that dream job they’ve always wanted, you should certainly celebrate with them. You can save the champagne for a home celebration but you may want to you have a bright bouquet of blooms delivered to their office.

Colleague or superior

You want to take a bit of care when choosing floral gifts for your boss or colleague. You don’t want there to be any room for misinterpretation. If you want to play it extra safe without it looking like you are skimping, you can choose a beautiful potted plant. You should know just how much light enters their office and how busy they usually are. One safe bet, no matter what, is a succulent. They are pretty, compact and they don’t require too much care.

Remember, when sending congratulations flowers, you should take the time to include a special note in the card your florist will attach to the flower delivery. Let the recipient know just how proud you are of them and, of course, you should tell them who sent them such a thoughtful gift.
