The list of occasions on which it is appropriate to send flowers is as long and varied as life itself.
Anniversaries can't be beat as the number one occasion for sending and receiving flowers. Whether it's a wedding anniversary or a jubilee, to mark the longevity of a relationship or the years spent by someone doing what they love as a career, flowers are a perfect way to highlight the day.
Birthdays, particularly ones that celebrate a significant rite of passage, are a good reason to contact your florist to send your good wishes along the way. For a fifteen-year-old celebrating her Quinceanera or as a Sweet Sixteen present, flowers will bring a smile to her lips. As attaining the ripe old age of eighteen turns a kid into a legal adult and twenty-one even more so, flowers can be an appropriate mile marker. A black bouquet will bring a laugh for a forty-year-old joining the ranks of the over-the-hill gang. For those who celebrate their name day with equal value as a birthday, receiving flowers to mark the occasion is nice, especially if an open house is planned and the arrangement will be displayed.
Flowers or a live plant sent to share the joy of a new baby's birth or adoption are always welcome. Sending them to a funeral home or family home to pay your respects to the dead is certainly appropriate, as well. A 'get well' bouquet or a simple 'thinking of you' arrangement can go along way to brighten a day.
Sending flowers for a house warming party or sending them because you are in the dog house is good. Sending flowers as a thank you for being a houseguest or a dinner guest works, too. If someone has done you a special favor, why not show your appreciation with a visit from the florist?
Congratulations are in order for everything from graduation, landing that first job, getting a big promotion or retiring at long last and sending flowers lets the recipient know how happy you are over their achievements. Opening night at the theater deserves flowers delivered to the dressing room of the thespian or musician you love. Closing night does, too.
Flowers are right for your sweetie on Sweetest Day and right for the sweet things you call Grandma and Granddad on Grandparents Day. They could be right for New Years Day, Chinese New Year, May Day, Cinco de Mayo, Rosh Hashanah, Veteran's Day, Hanukkah, Kwanza and Boxing Day.
Bridal showers and baby showers, especially when you can't be there other than in spirit, are occasions worth a stop by the florist's delivery van. Secretaries Day and Bosses Day, Teacher's Day and Nurse's week are good choices, too. There's a National School Bus Driver Day and flowers are nice thank you to the person who gets up at 5 a.m. to drive your child safely to school each day. Know a man with a luxurious mustache? National Mustache Day celebrated with flowers arranged in a mustache cup and delivered to his desk, just might make the corners of his mustache go up.
