Fresh Flowers and Family Gifting: A Guide to Floral Color Meanings

Saying the right words to your favorite relatives is one thing, but saying it with the right flower hues? That’s next level! As usual, we lift up Mom on Mother’s Day and throw some love Dad’s way on Father’s Day. And, if you’re fortunate enough to have them, Grandparent’s Day is all the brighter when you gift yours with colorful blooms. Those who are really on the ball also spread happiness to their siblings and chosen fam, and even remember to pamper their sweet pups and kitties! At Shirley’s Flower Studio in Bentonville, Arkansas, we’ve mastered the art of using color to express love and joy with beautiful flowers.

Pink Petals for Moms & Grandmoms

Timeless pink is a lovely shade for flowers, and we love it! Whether you want to tell your mothers and grandmothers “Thank you for all you do” or go for a loud “I love you so much,” pink gets the message across flawlessly. Carnations are super fitting — they represent a mama’s fierce and unyielding love for her little ones. Or you can opt for pink roses — true classics — which represent admiration and appreciation. Blooming peonies are also stellar gifts, bringing ample good fortune to their recipients.

Purple Blooms for Dads & Granddads

What are the first words that pop into our heads when we’re thinking about our wonderful dads and grandpas? Regal and dignified, no doubt! That’s why purple blooms are ideal — they radiate majesty and royalty. Pretty irises are connected to courage and wisdom, making them right on point for honoring him. Or, go retro with lilacs, those vintage flowers with an unbeatable fragrance. For something a bit more exotic, orchids are the ambassadors of nobility and will 100 percent wow him.

Green & Blue Flowers for Brothers & Honorary Bros

Flowers, especially green or blue blossoms, have the amazing power to instantly set a peaceful vibe. These shades also stand for loyalty and dependability — words that describe our brothers perfectly, whether honorary or blood-related. Show your appreciation by gifting them blue hydrangeas, which give off a seriously peaceful energy, complemented by blue thistle, which has a wild charm. Add gorgeous green chrysanthemums to the mix to shout out your friendship and show gratitude for their trustworthiness.

Peach Stems for Sisters & Honorary Sis

IYKYK: The special bond we have with our sisters or our besties, who are basically our sisters, is genuinely one-of-a-kind. Let her know she’s beyond the best with fresh peachy petals — they’re super trendy and will legit make her smile and feel super warm. Surprising her with fresh tulips is an excellent idea if she’s a fan of timeless flowers. To give props to your friendship, alstroemeria is an awesome bloom, or make ranunculus the star of the bouquet.

Orange & White Flowers for Your Furry Fam

There’s nothing like the joy our pets bring — they’re super sweet, totally loyal, and have us wrapped around their little paws. Brighten their day (or, let’s face it, yours) with fresh white and orange flowers, which rep excitement, innocence, purity, and happiness. Just be super careful that the flowers aren’t harmful to pets! One perfect choice is white snapdragons — they’re tall blooms with a petal shape that’s super unique. They look fantastic with orange gerbera daisies. It’s a heartfelt way to show your four-legged friend some sincere appreciation.

Thanks to color guidance from Shirley’s Flower Studio, you can now choose flowers that legit capture your sentiments. Send your family blooms that speak volumes about your love and appreciation, creating awesome memories.
