Congratulation flower ideas
Flowers are the obvious choice when celebrating a friend’s success or offering them congratulations for a significant achievement. But what flowers are best? Are some better suited to a congratulations bouquet than others?
Definitely. Just as there are certain flowers you would send to a funeral which can convey grief, loss, and mourning, there are equally blossoms that are better used for celebration, success and congratulations flowers.

Keep these kinds of flowers in mind when browsing congratulations bouquets to ensure you choose an appropriate arrangement. However, if you’re looking for a more specific celebratory bouquet, we’ve got some tips for some of the most common occasions for sending a congratulations bouquet.
Congratulations flowers for new job
Someone you know is after being promoted and you want to send flowers to their office to congratulate them. What kind of congratulations bouquet should you choose?
While this will depend on the relationship you have with them - are they a friend or colleague? - generally choosing yellow or purple flowers will guarantee you strike the right tone in your congratulations bouquet. Yellow flowers convey happiness, warmth, loyalty, and affection while purple flowers historically represent respect, admiration, and success.

Congratulations flowers for moving house
A new house is like a new beginning, a fresh start. Congratulations flowers should embody this, symbolizing the sense of hope and possibility one feels when creating a new home. Therefore spring flowers like daffodils and tulips are a wonderful choice to give a friend when attending a housewarming.
These brightly-colored blooms are also a decoration in themselves, helping to brighten up a new space that might still be a little sparse.
Of course, another obvious congratulations gift for new homeowners is a houseplant. Longer-lasting than a bouquet and bringing mood-boosting and air-purifying qualities into a home, a well-chosen house plant is the perfect way to say ‘congratulations’ on owning or renting a new property.
Feng shui recommends plants like a fiddle leaf fig, for their positive energy and ability to attract abundance, wealth, good luck, and prosperity.
Alternatively, peace lilies, cacti and succulents, hanging plants and snake plants are all fantastic, and generally low-maintenance plants that are perfect for a housewarming. You can have them easily delivered to a loved one’s home by using plant delivery services like LivelyRoot and Plants.com.
