Flowers have always had that powerful and almost magical way of helping people express or evoke a feeling in their heart. This includes giving and asking for forgiveness.
Saying sorry can sometimes be scary. It’s a total acknowledgment that, yes, it’s your fault. You shouldn’t have said that or shouldn’t have done that. Aside from owning up to your mistake, it’s also seeking for forgiveness and asking for a second chance to make it up to the offended party. This is the hardest part because of the possibility of rejection.
Fortunately, flowers have their way of making difficult moments seem lighter and a bit easier on the heart. Make your apologies more heartfelt and thoughtful with beautiful apology flower arrangements as peace offerings. This applies to all, whether it’s your significant other, a close friend, a family member, a colleague, or an important client.
It's better to know what the favorite flowers of the recipient are to make your apology flowers personalized and all the more thoughtful. But to give you an idea, here are some examples of stunning flowers that symbolize forgiveness and new beginnings.
White Tulips for Friends
Tulip Desire, $135
White tulips are hailed as one of the most traditional “I’m sorry” flowers because of its association to springtime and new beginnings. Giving white tulips in the context of an apology means you want to start over. Yellow tulips, on the other hand, symbolize friendship, cheerful vibes, and turning a frown into a smile. A bouquet of pure white tulips or a sunshine yellow flower arrangement featuring tulips will surely melt the heart of a friend or family you have offended.
White Orchids for Clients
Aside from representing beauty and prosperity, pure white orchids also stand for clean intentions, honesty, and forgiveness. If you want to make amends to someone you work with or do business with but are thinking twice about giving flower arrangements because you do not want to send mixed signals, we highly recommend giving orchids.
Orchid arrangements are the perfect gifts for clients because they have that elegant, tasteful, and no-frills kind of beauty that can be appreciated by both men and women. Plus, they look can effortlessly beautiful and can easily adapt and thrive in an indoor environment, such as an office setting.
Roses for Significant Other
The classic flowers for romance, a bunch of roses in blush pink or red will increase your chances when asking for forgiveness from your significant other. A bouquet of red roses given to a lover after a fight means you want to keep going and work on making your relationship stronger. Don’t forget to leave a note when sending your apology flowers. You don’t want to keep him/her guessing. Keep it sweet, simple, and all sincere.

Ideally, saying sorry is best done in person. However, if you want to test the waters first and check if he/she has already cooled down and ready to talk, maybe surprise her and catch her off guard in the office, or you are out of town or whatever and wouldn't be able to give your peace offering in person just yet, a trusted flower delivery service can be a lifesaver.
