The Most Appropriate Flowers to Send for Every Occasion
Take a moment to remember how you felt the last time an bunch of blooms landed on your desk or doorstep. Whether it was for a celebratory reason, or a thoughtful reason, as soon as you lay eyes on those pretty florals, you instantaneously feel special. Sending flowers on momentous occasions to friends, family, and acquaintances is a universal pastime and one that comes with guaranteed thought, kindness, and consideration every single time—a gift in itself. But as the sender, the questions always looms—what type, what colour, and what size? Because fuschia Sweet Peas probably don’t scream “I’m sorry”, while a subtle bunch of greenery probably doesn’t symbolise “congratulations” so it’s important to get it right. Enter Kieran Birchall from renowned Sydney-based florist, MyFlowerMan, who always gets it right, so we can now too.
Scroll on, step into Birchall’s dreamy new space first and then find out how to deliver your next bouquet of blooms in appropriate style.
“I get so many birthday bunches come through via my online store and from my experience people tend to get lots of flowers on their birthday, I’d want to stand out a little without being inappropriately over the top. I love flowering gum, it’s bright, natural and very Australian. I would give someone a big bunch of that for their birthday.”
“A thank you bunch is to show appreciation, so I would pick my favourite—Eucalyptus Macrocarpa when it’s flowering.”
“I think something soft yet long lasting for a sorry bunch—I would go for ‘blushing bride.’”
“This is the ideal celebration occasion, go large or opulent with King Proteas. A cluster of around 8-10 would make a large statement and give some wow-factor.”
“A just because would be a mixed bunch in-line with my normal aesthetic and favourites of Eucalyptus Gum leaves, seasonal Roses, Tulips, and a burst of something unique and interesting like Safari Sunset or Queen Proteas.”
“I like the classic green and white combination and I think to show sympathy it’s a good combination because it’s elegant and shows restraint. Eucalyptus Gum, David Austin Roses, and phalaenopsis orchids.”
