If there is one thing other than flower-giving that people of all ages seem to love, it is receiving messages. If your loved ones receive both a bouquet and a message at once, it will surely put a smile on their face and make their day a little bit brighter.
Some people, however, find it hard to express themselves through words. So if you are planning to send a message to further convey your feelings, then this list will surely help. Here is a list of messages you can say and flowers you can give depending on the occasion:
Birthdays only happen once a year so it is of great importance that you make the birthday celebrant smile and happy. There are various gift ideas but nothing can top being surprised by a beautiful bouquet of blooms and a personalized message.
These are the top five things you can write on the birthday card:
- Hope your birthday is as terrific and awesome as you are!
- Here is a toast for another year of adventure!
- Life gets better every year. Go and live it to the fullest!
- May all your dreams come true! Happy Birthday!
- Wishing you a fruitful and successful year ahead of you. Happiest birthday to you!
And if you are wondering what flowers to give, think no more. Here are the two best flowers that can be added to your birthday bouquet:
- Yellow Roses
Yellow roses are popular for a birthday bouquet. These flowers mean friendship, joy, and care which makes it a perfect gift for your best friend or a friend that has been with you throughout the years.
Because of the rose’s sun color, it can give a feeling of warmth, delight, affection, and gladness. So if you want to show your friend that you are grateful for their existence, then a yellow rose would be an appropriate gift for them.
- Pink Carnations
A pink carnation is a symbol of being unforgettable. More importantly, this flower is used as a symbol of a mother’s pure and undying love. Legends say that wherever Mother Mary’s tears fell, pink carnations suddenly grew in that area.
If it is your mother’s birthday, then a bouquet of pink carnations will never go wrong. Not only are they attractive flowers, but they are also the perfect symbol of your mother’s selfless love for the family.
Flowers are famous for being associated with love and romance. People gift their significant others a bouquet of their favorite blooms to symbolize their relationship. Aside from flowers, handwritten letters are not only romantic, but they also show that you are willing to make an effort for your partner.
Although short, these messages will surely melt your partner’s hearts and make your relationship better.
- I love you. Through hell and high waters with you, my love.
- Always and in all ways.
- I have never been as happy and as contented before. I love you.
- You made me realize my worth and changed me for the better. Thank you.
- These flowers may wither and die, but the love I have for you will remain for as long as I live.
- They said you only fall in love once, yet I fall for you every single day.
Sending flowers along with those messages is a perfect way to show your love and affection. Whether it be Valentine’s Day, your anniversary, or just a random day, this flower will make your partner fall in love with you all over again.
Nothing can and will ever beat roses. Albeit beautiful in every hue it comes, roses can hold a variety of meanings. You have to make sure to choose which color best symbolizes your relationship. Nonetheless, a rose is still a rose and at the end of the day, that will always symbolize love.
Messages and flowers go hand in hand especially when trying to make amends. It is also a great way to show responsibility for your actions. Here are some things you can say to apologize and make peace:
- I did not mean to upset you. I hope you can forgive me.
- I wanted to say that I am sorry for hurting and upsetting you. I hope to receive your forgiveness. I want us to start anew.
- If I had to do it all over again, I would do better. I am sorry.
For apology flowers, it is important to put thought into your choice. You can opt for the recipient’s favorite bloom to show that you care and know what makes them happy.
- White Tulips
The purity of a white flower can give people a sense of calmness and it symbolizes rebirth and renewal. The white tulip is associated with new beginnings. Giving a bouquet of white tulips will show that you wish to restart your relationship with a clean slate and start over again.
Daffodils symbolize rebirth. This type of flower should be given as a bouquet since a single one denotes ill-will. Daffodils are a great sign of apology and show that nothing would make you happier than rekindling your relationship.
Most people have a fear that they are going to upset or make the recipient of their sympathy words worse. In the case of comforting someone during a loss, you have to be careful with what you say simply because you do not have an idea of what they are going through.
Some words can come across as gaslighting and invalidating people’s feelings. Below are some of the best and most suitable choices for sympathy messages:
- Please accept these flowers as a sign of support during these trying times. May these let you hear the words we are not able to speak.
- Offering you my deep sympathy and prayers.
- Always here for you, remember that.
Giving flowers to a grieving family or person is a great way to show sympathy for the loss of a loved one. White and green are the most appropriate color for funeral flowers since this combination conveys a message of sympathy.
Lilies are the most common funeral flowers. These flowers are associated with a soul’s renewal and are said to restore innocence to the departed soul. Lilies are usually arranged in a funeral basket or standing sprays.
Like lilies, orchids are also common funeral flowers. A white orchid is a go-to flower to show sympathy for the grieving family. This type of flower symbolizes eternal love. If you are close to the deceased, orchids are great to show your everlasting love.
On the whole, there are a lot of things you can say and gifts you can give. However, nothing beats the classic bouquet and flower combination. It is simple yet it shows sincerity and thought that most gifts do not give.
Giving your loved ones a bouquet and handwritten messages is a great gift on every occasion. Everyone loves the beauty of flowers and the way they uplift people’s spirits. Flower-giving and message writing will never get old and disappear.
