Ah, bouquets. They are the epitome of love, bestowed upon your significant other during a romantic occasion. But that’s not the only time you should gift your loved ones. When words fail, here are 10 messages that a classic bouquet of fresh, radiant flowers can convey:


  1. To say, “You are my sunshine”

Everyone has someone who never fails to cheer them up, whether it’s their other half, their relative or their buddy. So what better way to thank your personal ray of sunshine than with a cheery, vibrant bouquet of sunflowers like the Sareena?



  1. To say, “I’m sorry”

Let’s face it: life is hardly a bed of roses, and sometimes we run into conflicts big and small. Bridge the gap with a simple bouquet that conveys your apologies as well as how much you value your relationship.



  1. To say, “Congratulations!”

Whether it’s to celebrate a new arrival in the family, or nailing that hard earned promotion, flowers can go a long way in expressing how happy you are for the recipient.

  1. To say, “Get well soon.”

No one likes falling sick, and we could all use a perk-me-up or two while we’re recovering at the hospital or at home. Brighten up their indoors with their favourite things – sunflowers, cheery balloons, cuddly teddy bears – you name it.

  1. To say, “Good job!”

As they say, no man is an island, and with great teamwork comes great results. Acknowledge your team mate’s efforts or achievements with a thoughtful gift that they can also display with pride. Whether it’s a handwritten thank you note or a simple bouquet, your recipient will appreciate your recognition.

  1. To say, “Let’s make this place pretty!”

Nothing spruces up a house better than a tasteful arrangement of flowers in your favourite shade. Use it as a centrepiece for your living room or dinner table, and you have yourself a fancy coffee table or family meal.



  1. To say, “Here’s to better weather.”

With the rainy season upon us, staying indoors amid gloomy weather will become more frequent. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t bring the vibrant outdoors in with you! Get preppy colours to brighten up the environment, or compliment the sombre mood with darker, subtle shades.



  1. To say, “All the best!”

Embarking on a new

business venture or stage in life can be unbelievably nerve wrecking, and even the littlest show of support can mean the world to them. Send your loved one a token to let them know that you are with them every step of the way, even if you can’t be there in person.

  1. To say, “Happy birthday!” 

Besides a fancy cake and (maybe) breakfast in bed, what better way to celebrate your hitting a new year than a meaningful gift? After all, you’ve never too old for presents!



  1. To say, “Surprise!”

Because really, why do we have to wait around for a special occasion just to express our love and appreciation for our friends and family?

    I love this! It’s given me some great ideas. My sister recently moved to Italy to take a job, and I’ve been thinking of sending her flowers with FloraQueen as they deliver to loads of different countries. This has definitely given me some inspiration to get on with it and say “all the best!”. Have you got any tips for the best kinds of flowers to send? I think she likes Tulips but am open to ideas,
