The perfect graduation flowers

Graduation is always such an important milestone for any young person as well as their family. This year, however, the celebrations we have come to know and love may not be possible. Whether you have already ‘celebrated’ your loved one’s graduation or this big day is still coming up, it’s good to know that there are things you can do to make this one to remember. The right gifts and graduation flowers will certainly go a long way to helping you make them feel special.

Types of flowers

The first step to choosing the right graduation flowers is keeping in mind that different flowers have different meanings. Roses, irises, gladiolus and tulips can all make the most amazing gift for this special occasion. You can use a single type of bloom or you can combine two or more flowers for an even more impressive display.


Once you have considered the various types of flowers, it’s time to plan the colour scheme. Yellow roses are a symbol of friendship while orange roses represent energy and enthusiasm. Gladiolus flowers represent strength which is certainly something that every new graduate could use. Pink tulips symbolise happiness as well as confidence while yellow tulips send a cheerful message. As you can see, when it comes to graduation flowers, the popular colour trend includes warm colours.

Plant options

If you want to give your loved one a gift that will last longer than a few weeks, you could send a potted plant. While graduation flowers usually include bright colours, a potted plant may or may not produce flowers. Snake plants, for example, are extremely beneficial for the air quality in the room but they will not produce flowers. This is not to say that they are not beautiful to behold and, don’t forget, the colour green has an amazing calming effect on the mind.

Additional gifts

After choosing the right graduation flowers or plant for your loved one, it’s time to consider adding something extra. A congratulations balloon, bottle of bubbly or even some luxury chocolates will all go a long way to letting them know how much you care and support them. This time of their life is exciting and terrifying all at the same time. Your gift should offer them some comfort and support.

If you are able to celebrate together with the new graduate, then you can certainly present them with their graduation flowers and gifts in person. If not, remember that direct deliveries are always an option. Don’t forget to include a special message in the card that is to be included with the flower delivery!
