How to Pick Birthday Flower Arrangements
There are so many types of flowers and a wide range of striking color combinations available for making the sweetest birthday flowers. But the endless possibilities can be both exciting and overwhelming for some people. So, we’ll give you some expert tips to guide you when choosing unforgettable birthday flowers.
1. Find out what their favorite flowers are.
Show the recipient that you care about them and pay attention to sweet little details by giving them a birthday bouquet with their favorite flowers. There are many sneaky ways to find out about this. You can casually ask them at least a few weeks before their special day, see which blooms they usually buy at the florist, or get insider info from their closest friends and family.
2. See what flowers are in season.
Seasonal flowers are fabulous for birthdays because they’re guaranteed to be fresher, longer-lasting, and smell sweeter.
3. Look into birth month flowers.
Different flowers are assigned depending on what month you were born, and each has an exciting flower meaning. For example, those born in March have daffodils as their birth flower. Giving them birthday flowers will send a message that you put a lot of thought into your gift.
4. Consider the flower meaning.
Flowers are very meaningful. While most flower meanings are generally positive, sending the wrong message to someone is still possible if you are not careful.
For example, suppose you’re sending birthday flowers to a dear friend or colleague. In that case, we recommend staying away from iconic blooms, such as roses and tulips in red or bright pink, which are associated with love and romance. Instead, we suggest our customers stick to happy, jolly colors connected to celebration and friendship, like yellow or a mixed flower arrangement.
5. Are they allergic to any flowers?
Does the recipient have a flower allergy? If you do not have the information available and it’s the primary concern, you can choose allergy-friendly birthday flowers using orchids.
According to experts, it’s almost impossible for anyone to have an allergic reaction to orchids because their pollen, which triggers sneezing and watery eyes, are intact and concealed inside packets.
