Traditional Flowers Grandparents Love
You can’t go wrong with the classics when it comes to flowers grandparents would love.
- Roses are always a favourite and come in a variety of colours to suit any taste. Pink roses represent appreciation while red symbolizes love – perfect for Grandparents’ Day! You really can’t go wrong with a bouquet of colourful roses to brighten their day.
- Carnations are another traditional flower that reminds many grandparents of simpler times. Their ruffled petals and clove-like scent evoke nostalgia. Carnations also come in a rainbow of hues and last up to two weeks.
- Lilies make a dramatic statement with their large blooms and intense fragrance. Asiatic lilies in particular boast brilliant oranges and yellows for an eye-catching display. Just make sure the recipient isn’t sensitive to strong scents before sending lilies!
- Sometimes simpler is better. A mixed bouquet of daisies, tulips, sunflowers, or orchids lets grandparents know you are thinking of them without being too showy.
When picking out a flower bouquet, consider your grandparents’ tastes and the season. Choose something they will appreciate and be able to enjoy for the longest time possible. After all, classic flowers for the classic generation are always a thoughtful gift.
Unique Flower Arrangements to Surprise Your Grandparents
Have flowers custom-arranged in their favorite vase or container. Adding personal touches like a handwritten note expressing your love and appreciation for your grandparents will make it extra special. You can also choose flowers in colours or varieties meaningful to your relationship.
Create an arrangement inspired by their hobbies or interests. For a gardener, include flowers and foliage from their own garden. For bakers, arrange flowers in a watering can or colander and add whimsical touches like measuring cups or spoons. For music lovers, use a musical instrument like a trumpet vase for the blooms.
Send a living plant or flowers, like orchids, that can be enjoyed for weeks or months. Plant flowers or foliage from your grandparents’ garden in a decorative pot for an arrangement that lasts beyond the season. Dried lavender, baby’s breath or wheat grass are natural choices with a long-lasting scent.

The time we have with our grandparents is a precious gift. With Grandparents’ Day coming up, make the moments count by giving them a call, paying them a visit and sharing memories. It will be the most cherished gift of all. But if you can’t be there in person, your grandparents would appreciate the thought behind a little floral reminder of the joy they bring to your life each and every day.
