Birthdays are one of those occasions that we all celebrate, unlike holidays that vary depending on one’s personal beliefs. So, of course, we will have to buy birthday gifts all year round for those we care for. But what should you get, especially for someone who already has it all? Or for someone who you do not know that well but still want to get them a little something for their special day? What about a birthday bouquet?
Flowers are a thoughtful birthday gift that is ideal if you do not have a lot of time to shop. They are also a perfect gift for someone who lives far away. A well-chosen birthday bouquet is a great way to let someone know that you were thinking of them on their birthday.
HOW TO CHOOSE A BIRTHDAY BOUQUET ORDER FROM A FLORAL SHOP
Every floral shop, whether online or a physical store, will have a great selection of Happy Birthday bouquet arrangements for your selection. You will be able to personalize your choice and even include some extras, such as balloons, a stuffed animal, fruits, or assorted candies and chocolates. You can even enclose a personalized message. Of course, the additional items will add to the final cost. And do not forget the delivery fee if you are not going to be presenting the arrangement in person.
Create Your Own
Of course, you can create your own birthday bouquet with a few simple items. All you need are the following:
- Assortment of flowers
- Birthday balloons
- Floral foam
- Pretty tissue paper
- Bows and Ribbons
- Birthday wrapping paper
You can also include additional items, such as food (candy, chocolates, fruit, a cake, etc.), balloons, or a stuffed animal of your personal creation. If you have an artistic flair, you could design a birthday bouquet to rival even the most qualified florist.
Unless you intend to send the birthday bouquet as a mystery gift, always be sure to include a card with your name so that the receiver knows who sent them the gift.
Another thing to keep in mind is where you would like to send the birthday bouquet to? Are you going to have it delivered to their workplace? First, check if the delivery is allowed, as some companies do not allow for personal deliveries.
For home delivery, it is always wise to be sure that the receiver will be home the day the birthday bouquet arrives. You do not want to send a fresh floral arrangement to someone who is out of town at the time of the delivery.
JANUARY BIRTHDAY BOUQUET FLOWERS
The carnation is the official birthday flower for the month of January. Carnations symbolize the following qualities:
- Divine love
- Light red carnations: Admiration.
- Dark red carnations: Deep love & affection
- Pink carnations: Gratitude
- White carnations: Luck, pure love & purity
Snowdrops are often understated delicate flowers that symbolize beauty and hope. They are a good choice for those whose birthday is in January, as snowdrops bloom during colder temperatures, especially in areas where it snows often, hence the name.
Of course, you do not necessarily have to go with these flowers. If you know the birthday person’s favorite flower, you can use that information as your choice for their birthday bouquet. Just be sure that they are not allergic to any of the flowers in your chosen arrangement. Be mindful if they have pets as well, as certain flowers and plants are toxic to animals.
Keep these simple tips in mind and you will be able to choose the perfect birthday bouquet!
