What flowers to give for a graduation?

When choosing which graduation flowers to give to your scholar, you want to find something that expresses joy, excitement, and even good fortune. You can do that through the meaning of the flower or simply by selecting a bright, colorful bouquet. Some of the most popular graduation bouquets include: You could also give them a potted bamboo plant or orchid for a bit of good luck for their exciting new chapter. In addition to graduation flowers and plants, we have other gifts that they’ll love, like our graduation gift baskets that include the best celebratory sweets and snacks (including cake pops, cookies, and more).   And, while you’re ordering flower delivery for other special days in May, don’t forget to send some Mother’s Day flowers to the lady in your life!

What’s the best way to present graduation flowers as a gift?  

The best way to present graduation flowers as a gift depends on several factors, including the setting, whether you’re presenting them in person, and when you’re giving the grad their gift. For example, if you’re giving flowers right after the ceremony, a graduation bouquet or lei is probably the best option. However, if you’re meeting them at a party or dinner, a centerpiece-style flower basket is a perfect way to decorate the table. With our diverse selection, there are plenty of ways to present graduation flowers, such as traditional bouquets and potted plants.   If you’re sending love to your grad from afar, a graduation gift basket paired with their favorite flowers is the perfect way to celebrate their achievement with them. And with FTD, you can rest assured that your delivery will arrive on-time and in the freshest condition.

What flowers are best for graduation leis?  

Graduation leis are often given to celebrate the grad’s departure from school and entering their new chapter, which is an adaptation of the Hawaiin tradition. Graduation leis are typically made using:
  • Orchids
  • Carnations
  • Plumerias
  • Roses
However, you can make leis using whichever fresh flowers you want, including blooms that match their school colors. While buying a pre-made lei is easy, it can be extra special to order a beautiful graduation bouquet and create your own.   FTD is your go-to for graduation flower arrangements, graduation baskets, and anything else you need to send to your family and friends, from birthday flowers to wedding bouquets. You can trust us to help you show up for all the big events in your loved one’s lives, even if you can’t be there in person.
