Graduation season is just around the corner, and sooner or later, you’re bound to see your friends and loved ones donning their graduation gowns and mortarboard. Marking a crucial milestone in the lives of every student, the graduation ceremony is a special event that signifies the end of a long academic journey that was navigated with hard work and full-on dedication. While a heartfelt congratulatory text message or a simple pat on the back might suffice in demonstrating how proud you are of the new graduate’s achievements, there are other creative ways to celebrate this event. And as with other major life events, flowers are always a unique way to honour this milestone.
Fav Florist, offers various graduation flower bouquet options as a way to help you express this very sentiment. Serving as a meaningful and intimate way to celebrate this special occasion, our graduation flowers can convey your pride and joy in the sincerest way possible.
Why Graduation Flowers Are a Great Way to Celebrate this Achievement?
While every flower may have its own meaning, efficiently conveying different messages and emotions, there is no denying that the significance of gifting flowers remains steadfast. Evolving into a way of communicating when words fail, gifting a flower bouquet to a graduate has now become commonplace. Today, this customary gesture is imbued with more than the mere association of flowers with their given meaning. Amidst the chatter and boisterous crowd, gifting flowers during a graduation ceremony will quietly convey your congratulations, with the recipient being able to immediately understand your intended message.
Graduation Flower Bouquet Etiquette
Although the colours of the graduation flowers play an important role in symbolism, one can’t help but wonder if there is an appropriate time and place to gift a graduation bouquet. No doubt, it can be a challenge to find the right moment to do so, especially with all the hustle and bustle of the event. However, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to this. Gifting congratulatory flowers before graduation day will show the soon-to-be graduate that you’ve been thinking about their achievements, even before the official ceremony. Giving your loved one flowers post-ceremony is also a popular time, riding off their graduation high to surprise them. If you’re unable to attend the ceremony, opting for flower delivery services offered by florists in Singapore is just as feasible – showing that you’re there in spirit to support.
