As a kid, there was no better day than your birthday. You got to bring cupcakes to your class at school; there were balloons and presents, and maybe even a moon bounce to bounce inside. As an adult, birthday celebrations are a good time to let loose and kick off another year, whether that’s with cake, a party, or just having a good old-fashioned “me day” on the couch.
Does a special friend or loved one of yours have a big birthday coming up, but you aren’t sure what to get them? Sending out a birthday flower bouquet is a good start, but a lot of times you might not know what to put on the card. Finding the right happy birthday message can be challenging sometimes.

A birthday is one of so many events elevated by the giving of flowers. Whether it’s an entire bouquet or a single stem, flowers suggest thoughtfulness, care and appreciation for a loved one. Being surprised by their sight and smell is such a pleasant way to receive birthday wishes.
The wide range of floral selection allows for a gift catered to the recipient’s unique personality and preferences. Something so carefully personalized deserves an appropriate message to match. And what’s better than sending a lovely birthday poem to your partner, friend, or family! Birthday poems serve as a creative and intimate companion, alleviating any confusion as to the meaning behind the gift. Happiness is the only plausible emotion to come from this lovely combination.
Happy birthday to you
Let us toast to the things that you do
I cannot remember just what those are
But I am sure they are enough to make you a star!
Laughter rises from rooms you enter.
A smile stirs from just a word.
A lovely chorus with you, the center,
The greatest sound I’ve ever heard.
Happy birthday to you!
Happiness is what you have to offer,
And what you shall receive.
Your birthday comes with many blessings,
That I do believe.
The smell of a rose before it comes into view.
An airport terminal before an arriving plane is due.
With similar anticipation I have long awaited
Spending an incredible birthday with you!
These birthday wishes come from afar,
Filled with love, affection, warmth and care.
Your light radiates through the sky,
And no matter how hard I try,
I can’t even begin to share
How you truly are wonderful and rare.
My love for you is an endless stream,
Whose current carries me away.
What once was just a distant dream,
Is now my each and every day.
Our roots have intertwined and spread,
The future’s all that’s left to bloom.
I can’t believe I get to spend
Another birthday close to you!
Happy birthday, love!
Like a flower in the sun,
You shine until the day is done.
This day is special, for it’s yours.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the fun!
Side by side is how we’re pictured,
Two souls attached by the bond of time.
Wandering forever in the forest of adventure,
Seeking nothing but a constant climb.
To look down is to look back, and ultimately away from you;
Once a year I am reminded of the thing I’ll never do.
Happy birthday, sweetheart!
A meadow filled with your favorite color.
A brand-new interest to discover.
A blissful life spent with your lover.
For all these dreams and any other,
May your birthday wish come true!
