If you’re lucky your family members all live very close to you. If you’re anything like us at the flower shop, your family is spread out throughout the country! You don’t have to send flowers all the time, it could just be to say a quick “hello” or “I’m thinking about you”. Who doesn’t want to be remembered? There are lots of reasons to send a family member a flower arrangement or gift basket. Here’s a few reasons and ideas to send for such occasions!
|1. Living Another Year Birthdays are celebrated because we want to acknowledge that we have lived another year. We mark the anniversary of the beginning of a life. We are joyous. We give gifts. We have cake and ice cream. And we blow out the candles and make a wish.Flowers for Birthdays:
Birthday Fireworks – Colorful flowers with a Mylar balloon.
|2. Graduating Whether it’s high school or college, graduating is earned by hard work. We honor those who strive to make the most of their lives through education and gifts are usually generous for the graduate! We send cards with money, flowers, and gifts from the heart, congratulating the graduate and letting them know we believe in them.Flowers for Graduates:
Cotton Candy – A fluffy cloud of pink and white flowers. A sweet gift.
|3. Starting a CareerWe know the difference between a job and a career. A job pays the bills. A career has opportunities, benefits, and an available path in which to grow. We tell everyone we know when we land a position that fits our interests and talents. The excitement of better pay and a bigger office is too much to keep to ourselves! And we are given applause. Cards. Flowers & gift baskets.A Gift Basket for a New Career:
Gourmet Goodies – Have this delivered to the new office. Great for first days at work!
|4. Getting MarriedSearching for true love is a romantic dream most of us share. Once we have found that special person we want to live our lives with, we celebrate in grand fashion. Planning a wedding can spiral out of control and deplete our bank accounts but they are often the celebrations of a lifetime. We want our wedding day to be perfect – surrounded by loved ones and friends in a beautiful setting with a meaningful ceremony. And in the background are flowers, making a glorious statement. That this is a big milestone!Flowers for Weddings:|
|5. Celebrating an AnniversaryMarriage is an investment we make in hopes of creating a life together that will last. We celebrate each anniversary with appreciation and, hopefully, growing love and respect. Most women appreciate a night out along with a gift and a classic bouquet of roses.Flowers for Anniversaries:
Two Dozen Red Roses – Or choose roses in her favorite color!
|6. Having a ChildBringing a child into the world is not only a milestone, but a miracle. We want to share gifts for the new arrival and the mother to celebrate, to prepare and to welcome. Sending flowers to the hospital is an easy way to be among the first to congratulate!New Baby Flowers:
Baby’s First Wagon – We have new baby girl and new baby boy versions.
|7. Getting a PromotionWorking hard and living the American Dream is what we do. And when we are recognized for our hard work, we deserve a celebration! Congratulations cards and flowers are less common for this life milestone, but doubly appreciated.|
|8. Buying a HomeBuying a home is like putting down roots. You are part of a community, you know where you will raise your children, you know exactly where your furniture will fit. First priority after unpacking? Throwing a celebration party!|
