It's graduation week at ANU and we think graduating is a significant milestone that deserves to be celebrated with something special. Flowers are a classic gift that conveys pride, joy, and congratulations. Here are some tips to help you make the best choice when shopping for graduation flowers in Canberra.

1. Consider the Graduate's Preferences.

The first step in choosing graduation flowers is to think about the recipient's personal taste. Do they have a favorite flower or color? Do they like vibrant flowers or something more classic and pastel. Personalised touches show that you've put thought into your gift.

2. Does symbolism matter for the recipient?

Flowers have meanings and can convey different messages. For instance:
- Roses symbolize love and admiration. Red roses are a classic choice, but yellow roses represent friendship and joy.
- Lilies signify new beginnings, making them an excellent choice for graduates stepping into a new phase of life.
- Orchids represent beauty, strength, and luxury.

3. Seasonal Blooms.

It's always a good idea to opt for flowers that are in season, as they are typically fresher, last longer and more affordable. Winter graduations offer a variety of beautiful seasonal flowers like tulips, daffodils, stock and sunflowers.

4. Consider the Presentation.

The way the flowers are presented can make a big difference especially in your family graduation photos. Bouquets, floral arrangements in vases, or even potted plants can all be wonderful gifts. Consider what would be most convenient and meaningful for the graduate. When opting for a beautiful bouquet you can always try matching the wrapping to the graduates outfit or going for something neutral for photo aesthetics.

5. Add a Personal Touch. 

To make your gift extra special, consider adding a personal touch. A handwritten note, a small keepsake, or even a ribbon in the graduates class colours can help your gift stand out.

6. Graduation flower delivery.

We offer same day delivery 7 days a week so there has never been a more convincing way to get your flowers. We can deliver them to yourself the day prior for yoi to hand them to the graduate or we can deliver them direct to the graduates house.

That is just a few tips on how you can celebrate the achievements of your loved one with the beauty of flowers, and make their graduation day even more special.
