Gifting a Flower Bouquet: How to Choose the Right Flowers for Different Occasions

Colourful orchids for congratulations and red roses for valentine? Flowers come in myriad shapes, hues, and sizes, making them perfect for any occasion. Flowers play an essential part in major events of life.

However, what matters the most is the type of flowers you choose for the day. Of course, there’s a reason why you can only see white, purple, or yellow flowers at a funeral. Especially in Singaporean culture, different colours and species of flowers symbolize distinct meanings. So, if you are planning to gift a flower bouquet, here’s a little guide to choosing the right flower bouquet for different occasions.

  • Birthdays

Birthdays are the most versatile occasions since you are free to express your love and gratitude towards the person. Here you don’t need to go strictly by a code and select a bouquet according to your or your recipient’s choice. However, a bright multi-coloured bouquet paired with any gift item is enough to make them feel special.

  • Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s day is the occasion to express your love for your partner in the best way. Here, a classic red rose bouquet would be ideal since they have been a symbol of love and romance for centuries. The beauty and tremendous emotions radiated by red roses will make your partner feel your love and affection towards them!

  • Mother’s Day

She deserves the best because every mother is special. Consider her choice when trying to figure out where to get a flower bouquet for Mother’s Day. If you don’t know much about her choice, stunning and colourful roses, lilies, and orchids always do the job!

  • Congratulatory flowers

Has your daughter graduated recently? Or is your friend getting married? There are endless reasons to congratulate someone. Gift them bright and delicate flowers like roses, peonies, morning glory, carnations, etc., to express good wishes, luck, and gratitude towards them.

  • Get Well Soon

Giving flowers to a loved one who is hurt or ill is one of the best ways to brighten their day. Bold and vibrant colours like yellow and orange indicate vitality and health. You can elevate their mood by gifting them sunflowers, daffodils, tulips, and brightly coloured roses. Avoid selecting flowers with a strong aroma since people might be sensitive.

  • Funeral

Lilies, white roses, orchids, irises, carnations, gladioli, or chrysanthemums in white, yellow, and purple are traditionally linked with sympathy flowers. These flowers usually symbolize deep emotions and care, where white often means innocence and purity, purple means grief and sympathy, and yellow means warmth and hope.

Bottom Line

While different flower varieties can be used on various occasions, it is best to fully understand each flower’s meaning before gifting. If you still have second thoughts, it’s best to talk to your florist. Prince’s Flower Shop has provided and assisted people with the best flowers since 1966. They are the ultimate online florist who offers a plethora of flower bouquets, stands, and gift hampers for different occasions. Are you looking for a perfect flower bouquet for your first date? Order beautiful roses from their website today.

one of my most fav nurseries out of many i’ve explored in SG. it’s conveniently located near bukit panjang mrt. above all, the prices are reasonable (esp various types of soil mix, fertilizers, pesticides & pots). i’ve bought many plants here; on my lucky days i managed to buy a few rare caladiums and begonias! 😀

Bought my Valentine's bouquet here via instagram. The staff was friendly and patient in explaining the different types of bouquets available and worked well within my budget. They have both delivery and self-pickup options which made it very convenient for us buyers. Needless to say my special one was very pleased with the bouquet. Will definitely come back here again for my flowers.
