What to Write on Card for Birthday Flowers


We always encourage our customers to include heartwarming messages on the card — especially for birthday flowers! It’s an extra personal touch that brings a smile to their face knowing you remembered their special day.

Gifting someone a birthday bouquet but stuck on what to write on the card? We got you. Read on to learn everything you need to know about writing the sweetest birthday card for everyone in your life.

Tips for Writing Birthday Messages 

  • Keep it short and sweet. Let the birthday flowers do the rest of the talking for you.
  • Make it light and funny. Remind them of a hilarious memory you share or mention anything that makes them laugh. No off-colored jokes if you’re sending it to the recipient’s workplace.
  • Personalize your message if it’s for someone you know well. 
  • Include the recipient’s name in the message, so it doesn’t feel canned. 
  • It’s OK to send belated birthday messages. As they say, better late than never.

  • “[Tía], you are [50] years of fun, laughter and love. Te quiero mucho!”
  • “[30] is the perfect age. You’re old enough to afford the good stuff and still young enough to enjoy it!”
  • “Happy [90th] Birthday, [Nana Betty]! Today, we’re celebrating the amazing [woman] you are, honoring the life you’ve lived and, just like always, loving you so much!”
