Graduation in the Time of COVID-19
Due to social distancing guidelines put in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19, many high school and college seniors were devastated to learn that they won't get a "traditional" graduation ceremony this year. They will likely receive their hard-earned diploma in the mail rather than in person.
A graduation bouquet is a beautiful way to honor a graduate's hard work. On the designated day, flowers can help them celebrate in lieu of the usual ceremony.
Colorful, sweet-smelling flowers, gifts, or live plants from The Bouqs Co. may be just the thing to cheer up somebody who feels like they missed a proper graduation. Our graduation bouquets are exceptional flower gifts since they are farm-fresh and responsibly sourced.
A Bouqs graduation gift is the perfect way to say, "Congratulations!" Also, if your loved one can't celebrate with their family this year, flower gifts can substitute for a mother, father, or sibling in graduation photos.
Whether or not your loved one gets a graduation party this year, you can always count on us for the best flower delivery. In fact, for any special day, flowers delivered from The Bouqs Co. make a lovely gift.
Popular Graduation Flowers
Which flower type is the most appropriate graduation flower? After all, different flower gifts have different meanings. Here are some suggestions:
Roses - Roses are classic graduation flowers and gifts. Red roses symbolize respect, passion, romance, and love. Pink roses show gratitude and appreciation. Arguably the best rose color for gradation is yellow, because it stands for new beginnings.
Orchids - While orchids are commonly used in graduation leis, a potted orchid is a special gift in its own right that a graduate might be able to take into their next phase of life.
Lilies - Lilies are a beautiful reminder that spring is here, even if we may not be able to spend as much time outside enjoying the weather as we might like.
White Freesia - We could all use a fresh start right now, and white freesia is the perfect symbol of a new beginning.
