If you’re thinking about thanking someone for anything at all, consider adding something extra to the mix to show your gratitude. Some beautiful thank you flowers and a small present, or a kind gesture all go a long way to make someone feel appreciated.
If you’re short on ideas for the right thank you flowers, think about what they love and then combine it with what you know about them. The perfect thank you bouquet should combine all these things, and we’re sure no one would mind a little extra thrown into the mix as well.
If you want to know what kind of thank you bouquets would be best, or if you just want some options to consider, keep reading!
A Colorful Rose Bouquet
Roses are popular as flowers symbolizing passion, but they can mean a lot more than that. The best roses to convey gratitude and appreciation would be peach-colored roses, and you can combine them with dark pink roses that mean “thank you”.
If you’re aiming for a little variety, you can add yellow roses to the mix as well, which stand for joy. Add some white or green buds to this arrangement, or stick some of the receiver’s favorite chocolates inside for some extra joy, and you’re good to go!
These flowers actually mean “thank you for understanding”, and are great for a less joyous occasion, or when you want to thank someone for having stood with you through a difficult time. You can get hydrangeas in a lot of colors, and most flower shops will stock all kinds of bouquets that incorporate them as the main element.
Sweet Pea Flowers
Sweet pea flowers are grown in the summer, and they look absolutely beautiful in minimalist flower arrangements. If you look at one for the first time, you’ll think they look like tiny butterflies, and they’re available in a large variety of colors.
You can either go for a cheery, light-hearted vibe with a light pink and lavender-colored bouquet, or you can make things a little intense with the darker, indigo sweet pea flowers. This is where it might help to bring the receiver’s personal tastes into consideration.
Bell flowers are also known as campanula flowers, and they’re simple, elegant, and cheerful to say the least. They come in purple, purple-blue, pink, and white varieties, which is perfect for anyone who loves those colors.
These flowers are pretty small in size, which is why we’d suggest getting smaller sized bouquets so it doesn’t look cramped or crowded. If you don’t want a small bouquet or feel that it would be inadequate, make up for it by writing them a thank you note to give with the flowers, or a small present.
If you’re looking to buy an ethical bouquet for a friend, you might not have a lot of luck in the winters. This is because it’s not really flower season then, and most flowers would have been imported – carrying a humongous carbon footprint that we’re sure your friend won’t appreciate.
The good news is, there are still options. Camellias, for example, are great flowers that are available all year long. They come in white, red, and pink colors and would look great in a big grand bouquet. Try asking your flower seller to add some dark green elements to the mix as well, and see how beautiful it turns out!
Now you have something that says “thank you” in the middle of December.
If you’re still wondering whether a bouquet would be enough or not, consider accompanying presents like a watch or jewelry, thank you notes, and chocolates. Make sure to find out if the intended recipient of your gift is allergic to flowers or pollen, because the last thing you want is for your gesture to backfire!
