Choose Your Flowers Carefully
When deciding which type of bouquet to present to your loved one at the airport, keep in mind you may be in a crowd so select one that is small-to-medium in size. Large bouquets are likely to get jostled by people passing by and could become cumbersome to carry along with luggage. You can still go big, though, just take one stem from a grand bouquet to present at the airport with the remainder beautifully displayed at home.
Keep the recipient in mind while selecting flower types and colors. Red roses are the ultimate declaration of love and passion and are perfect for your significant other. But a bouquet of mostly red roses would not be appropriate for a friend or family member.
Getting a bouquet of your visitor’s favorite flowers or flower color is a nice personal touch. When selecting florals for family members, it’s important to remember certain colors and certain flowers express different meanings. To make sure you are sending the right message, use the below guide:
