Right Flowers For Right Occasions

“The earth laughs in flowers.” Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Yes with their vibrant shades, sweet aroma and velvety touch, flowers become the most prominent part of our expression and celebrations. Be it for brightening our own garden or personal space, wishing the close ones or planning for any special occasion; everything remains incomplete with their presence.

Globally the floral use differs from culture to culture. Every flower holds a distinct feature based on human taste, mood and emotions. They are quite capable of speaking our unspoken words. But still at times we all find it very difficult to make an exact choice matching with the occasions. Consequently a wrong choice can cause you a social embarrassment.

Therefore to make things easy, here is a brief idea about right flowers for the right occasion:


From ancient time a rose especially red, is the most romantic medium of expressing your love. But if you are among those whose love is not reciprocated then go for daffodils. Even a bunch of chrysanthemums or pretty lilacs or red tulips are a perfect alternate.


A lovely flora arrangement is a vital element of any wedding ceremony. So a balanced usage of flowers like berries, blueberries, daisies, foxgloves, geranium etc is good for making a memorable event for the newly knotted couple.


Friends play a remarkable role in our lives. So be it a beginning of a new friendship or just thanking one; geraniums, irises and zinnias are the perfect choices.


A bouquet of clover, orange blossom or bells of Ireland wrapped off with your wishes is a perfect gift for good luck. Even on occasions like baby shower, delivery of bells of Ireland is an absolute auspicious sign.


Convey your thankful attitude towards your well-wishers through a bunch of camellias, canterbury bells.


Birth Flower, a popular term used for flowers associated with different months of the year. Hence selecting the right bunch for the birthday star would be the best possible surprise.

April – Daisies

July – Water Lilies

Flowers for men

Gifting flowers to a man is a challenge. Since primeval time flowers were always been related to femininity; an ideal gift for woman. But as a matter of fact men love flowers too. Rise above the cliche rose as gifts and opt for few tropical flowers in bold colors like orange, yellow and red.

Choose the right flowers as gifts for next occasion and convey the right emotions!!
