Graduation ceremonies are coming up quick, and if you’re attending one to celebrate someone’s accomplishments, giving a gift to a graduate, or throwing a graduation party, one thing you must definitely know about is flowers. Just like you would carefully consider the type of flowers used in a wedding or other formal event, it’s important to take the time and really think about what kind of floral arrangement, as well as what type of flower, is most appropriate for this occasion.
Although it may not be time to get married, all high school seniors are looking for a proposal of some sort – specifically, the promposal (ladies, you know what we’re talking about!). While yes, asking someone to prom over dinner may be all it takes for some couples, if you’re in high school or have been around high schoolers lately, you know that now, the name of the game is to go big or go home!
With that said, whether you’re looking for suggestions on how to get your significant other to ask you to prom, or if you’re the asker looking for some clever promposal ideas, here is how you can create the best promposal using flowers:
Spell It Out
Using the petals from her favorite flowers, spell out “prom?” or “will you go to prom with me?” and lead her to where you’ve done so by creating a flower trail that also uses petals. You can choose to spell out the words on the floor, on the table, or on a large poster that you hang up at school – just make sure you also have a bouquet of her favorite flowers waiting for her at the final destination too!

When most people think about Mother’s Day, we have a pretty good feeling that their first thought solely revolves around their own mom. And while yes, Mother’s Day is designed for us to show our moms just how much we love and care for them, let’s not forget about those other motherly figures such as our grandmothers – they certainly deserve some attention too!
Once you’re done figuring out how you’ll recognize mom this year, it’s time to move onto grandma, and today, we’ve outlined a few gifts for you to help make your holiday planning a bit easier:

Ask anyone what they’ll be getting mom for Mother’s Day, and we bet almost every response will include flowers. But considering how popular of a gift flowers are, we suggest that you not just select any flower, but rather, take your gift giving to the next level by finding a flower that is a perfect match to mom, her personality, and the bond you share!
Check out our Mother’s Day flowers guide below to learn which type of floral arrangement you should be selecting this year:
Mother’s day roses are an absolute classic, and thus, one of the most popular that people come to us for each Mother’s Day! Depending on the color you choose, roses can symbolize everything from love (red) to purity (white), friendship (yellow), joy (pink) and passion (orange). If you’re looking for a combination of emotions to describe mom and your relationship, you can even choose from a bouquet of mixed colors!
Our moms mean absolutely everything to us, and we bet yours mean the same to you! And although we definitely don’t need an excuse to let them know just how much we love and appreciate them, Mother’s Day is a pretty perfect opportunity to do so.
