Flowers are a thoughtful gift for any occasion, especially on the occasion of someone’s birthday. The question for the buyer is what birthday flowers to choose? The answer will depend on the time of year and the person who will be receiving your gift.
If the birthday flowers are for your wife or long time girlfriend then red roses are most certainly called for. The red rose is the ultimate symbol of romantic love. Red roses say “I love you,” so if it is a new relationship you might want to choose pink or some other color. If the birthday flowers are for your mom or daughter then roses are still an excellent choice but steer clear of red and go with white or yellow.
There are a number of other varieties of flowers that look great in birthday bouquets but the availability might depend on the season. A huge mix of spring flowers will brighten up any room and they are not going to cost you a small fortune, ask your florist what is available. Tulips, lilies and daisies are all beautiful flowers that will look gorgeous in any room. If you know the recipient of the birthday flowers likes pink or purple then ask your florist to add chrysanthemums and carnations to the mix.
