8 Occasions When Thank You Flowers Make Sense February 28, 2018 08:05

Thank You FlowersYou've heard the well-worn expression, "Say it with flowers." But what you might not be as aware of is just how often you can -- and should -- do just that. Many people feel unnecessarily nervous or uncertain about sending flowers to a special someone, whether a romantic interest or a dear friend.

However, you might be surprised to learn just how many different reasons and events exist that are worthy of stunning bouquets and trendy arrangements.

From thank you flowers to arrangements that say "I know I really messed up," this post will highlight some of the most important occasions where it's always appropriate to send flowers to someone you care about.

1. Birthday Flowers

Is there an upcoming birthday boy or girl in your life? Are you notoriously awful at picking out gifts, or just don't have the time to scour stores to find the perfect present for a friend?

If so, then it sounds like you're already in the market for some birthday flowers. To make an arrangement even more special, you should consider adding blooms that correspond with the recipient's birth flower.

Forgot someone's birthday?

Don't sweat it.

We offer same-day flower delivery for all of life's little emergencies. Just be sure to mark your calendar for next year.

2. To Celebrate An Engagement

Did your best friend's man finally pop the question? Are you gunning to be asked to be a bridesmaid?

If so, then we strongly suggest sending celebratory engagement flowers to add to the atmosphere of excitement your friend is already feeling.

Plus, in addition to helping them to celebrate, sending them flowers will also get their wheels turning about the kinds and colors of flowers they would like best at their wedding.

After all, it's never too early to start planning for wedding flowers!

3. During A Stressful Time

Is your friend going through a crazy rough patch at work? Is a family member in the hospital, and getting lots of sleepless nights?

If so, sending them flowers is the perfect way to let them know that you're thinking about them. It also makes it clear that you're offering a shoulder to lean on when they need support.

Especially if you're unable to physically be by someone's side during a tough time, flowers are a great way to let them know you're still there for them.

4. When You Need To Apologize

No matter your age or your gender, we all make mistakes. Luckily, the right bouquet can fix things pretty quickly.

Work with one of our expert florists to ensure that your bouquet gets you out of the doghouse as quickly as possible -- but also write a card that promises you'll do better in the future.

Of course, if you've messed up in a pretty major way, flowers alone may not be enough. You might also consider adding a balloon, a stuffed animal, or another gift to make things right again.

Apology flowers should always be deeply specific and personal. So take the time to do your research on what kinds of arrangements and flowers the person getting them likes the best.

5. Thank You Flowers

Sending someone thank you flowers is a wonderful way to make it clear how much you appreciate what they've done for you.

Maybe a coworker picked up your shift after you had a family emergency. This is a perfect occasion for thank you flowers.

Or perhaps your best friend made you and your hubby an awesome dinner when you were too tired to cook last week? Another great reason to send thank you flowers.

6. Flowers For Memorial Services

There's no better way to send off someone special to the other side than with stunning funerary floral arrangements.

Not only are they a wonderful way to honor someone who has passed on, they'll also help to lift the spirits of everyone attending the service. We suggest selecting blooms in a yellow shade, the color of remembrance.

7. Valentine's Day

It's not exactly a secret that Valentine's Day is one of the busiest days of the years for florists around the globe.

Many people not only dream of getting flowers from their partner or crush on this special holidays -- lots more outright expect them. Don't let the person you love down by coming up empty-handed.

Think outside of the box as well. Instead of sending her red and white roses, why not create a special arrangement out of her favorite blooms, or even use the same flowers as she put in her wedding bouquet?

Finally, just be sure that you order your flowers well ahead of the 14th, as sometimes, delivery can get backed up around this time of year!

8. Just Because

Of course, you don't need to have a specific reason, like thank you flowers or because it's Valentine's Day, to send an arrangement to the person you care about.

Flowers are the perfect gift for every day of the year, and they're always guaranteed to put a smile on someone's face.

Plus, sending someone flowers for no reason other than because you care about them is one of the best ways to keep your delivery a surprise!
