How to choose the best flowers for kids
Keep these tips in mind when picking the perfect bouquet for the little ones in your life.
- Consider the child’s gender. While you don’t have to stick to the traditional “blue for boys and pink for girls” rule of thumb, you may want to tailor your bouquet based on the child’s gender. Some online florists offer cute add-ons like teddy bears or cars that come with flowers to make them even more fun and creative.
- What’s his or her favorite color? Feature their favorite color in your arrangement for an added touch of personalization.
- What do you want to say with the flowers? Are they for a birthday, religious ceremony, get well present or a school dance? Different flowers have different meanings, so pick blooms that match the reason for the gift.
- Ask about allergies. Before sending flowers, check with the child’s parents to make sure he or she doesn’t have any allergies to particular flowers. Or latex balloons, for that matter, if you’re going to include them with your gift.
Choosing flowers for different occasions
If you want your flowers to match the occasion or reason for the gift, refer to this quick guide when selecting your blooms.
Birthday and celebration flowers
For birthdays and celebrations, you may want to go with bright flowers. You want flowers that will bring cheer to the child, and bright colors tend to have that effect. A mixed bouquet is perfect for this. Or choose different colored roses, lilies, daisies or sunflowers.
If you’re sending sympathy flowers to a child, don’t go too sombre with the color. Instead, choose cheerful colors that will help to uplift the child’s spirits. Carnations and gladiolus are awesome picks.
Thank you flowers
Personalize thank you flowers to make them extra special. You could incorporate some of the recipient’s favorite flowers or colors into the bouquet, or go out of your way to buy rare, exotic flowers.
When buying hospital flowers, first find out if the hospital accepts flowers. Some hospitals may have special rules or guidelines about sending flowers and other gifts. If you’re allowed, choose blooms that don’t have strong scents and go for smaller arrangements.
Kids will enjoy the flowers even more if they come with a balloon or a keepsake item such as toy. But keep in mind that most hospitals don’t allow latex balloons due to allergies.
Blue and white can be good colors for kids, since they signify peace and comfort. Green plants can also make good gifts for children since they signify growth, fortune and good health.
Children love flowers, and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t send them floral gifts for a special occasion. Flowers have a way of lifting everyone’s mood, and your gift will be remembered long after the blooms are gone.
