How to Pick the Right Flowers for Different Occasions?

Flowers for every event

Giving flowers on different occasions is a tradition that has gone on for ages. Flowers are the beauty of nature, and they have the magical powers that instantly change mood and aura of an environment.

Whether it is New Year’s celebration, Valentine’s Day, baby showers, hospital visits, birthdays, marriage proposal, wedding, graduations or any other occasions, the right flowers can help set or change the mood.

If you are planning for a party or event, talk to a florist near you to suggest the best type of flower arrangement for your event. If you reside in Kuala Lumpur or Selangor, visit our website or speak to one of our friendly florists for suggestions.

Here are some flowers you can gift your friends and loved ones on different occasions.

1. Mother's Day Flowers

Our mothers have a special place in our hearts for not only giving birth to us but also raising and caring for us even after we grew into adulthood. Mother’s Day is a special day that honours the sacrifices and loves of all mothers. It is also a day that reminds us to express our love and appreciation for our mothers.

Pink colour usually denotes femininity and motherhood. As such, a pink bouquet is one of the most popular choice of flowers for mothers.

Some of the flowers suitable for Mother’s Day include:

2. Valentine's Day Flowers

Valentine’s Day is celebrated on 14th of February every year. Whether you are bringing your partner for a date or planning to tell your crush about your feelings, picking the right flowers will set the mood right.

There are times when even a single red rose can be the right gift — because quantity is not the most important factor. What matters is your expression of love, and appreciation towards your partner. 

Make sure to preorder the flowers for Valentine’s Day at least 2 weeks in advance to ensure availability. Flower prices also tend to increase closer to Valentine’s Day. Place your order early to enjoy lower prices.

Below are some of the perfect valentine's day flower gift:

3. Get Well Soon Flowers

Sending flowers to hospital patients is a sure way to express your care towards them. It may also brighten up their days. Before sending any flowers to the hospital, make sure to check with the respective hospital for their policies regarding fresh flowers. Try to avoid sending high-pollen flowers to hospital as they may trigger allergic reactions.

We recommend the following flowers as gifts to hospital patients:

  • Hydrangeas
  • Tulips
  • Roses
  • Orchids
