Tips on Choosing the Right Birthday Flowers

birthday flowers deliveredWhen you want to send birthday flowers online to a loved one, you want to make sure they are the most gorgeous and perfect flowers you can afford. But if you don’t know a great deal about flowers, then picking the best birthday flowers can feel quite daunting. After all, there are so many options to choose from, where do you even start. Obviously, you can start with the options available at your chosen flower shop, and pick from the selection they have on offer. It is a great option if you are short on time, or have no desire to get too involved in the world of flower delivery. If however, you want to go a bit further and personalise the bouquet, then we have got a few tips to help you get started, and ensure the flowers you pick delight your loved one.
Choose your loved one’s favourite flower: this is a simple, yet super effective option as it shows just how much you know them and that you have put effort into the gift. Of course, the only caveat to this one is that you do need to know what their favourite flower is. If you know this already, then great, get online and start ordering. If, however, you are not sure, there are ways to find it out. First, you could ask them, or someone else close to them, or you could have a dig around on social media and see if you can find any clues there. When you do find out, it will make choosing their birthday bouquet a breeze.

Special birthday: if it is a special birthday, you could always opt for a bouquet that represents this. There aren’t official flowers for different ages, as such, but you could use the same flowers you’d use for an anniversary. For example,
20th birthday: Daylilies.
30th: Sweet pea.
40th: Nasturtium.  
50th: Violets.
60th: Irises

January: Carnation
February: Iris
March: Daffodil
April: Sweet Pea
May: Lily
June: Rose
July: Larkspur
August: Gladiolus
September: Aster
October: Marigold
November: Chrysanthemum
December: Poinsettia.
Favourite colour: another simple and effective option is to choose flowers in their favourite colour. This option means you can include a nice variety of different flowers in your bouquet as lots of blooms come in a range of colours. Things like roses, tulips, chrysanthemums, carnations and lilies all have different colour varieties, so you can create a nice mix of different flowers, all the while still making it personal to your loved one.
