Graduation flowers express happiness, appreciation and joy for the graduate and her accomplishments. Select her favorite flowers in her favorite shade or buy flowers that match her school colors. Choose one main type of flower bouquet or pair roses with daisies and other types of blooms.
Tulips grow in abundance during the spring/early summer graduation season. Choose tulips for a grad who enjoys simple, yet elegant flower arrangements. These blooms come in a wide range of colors such as blue, purple, pink, red, white, yellow, orange and bi-colors. Pair a bouquet of tulips with a stuffed teddy bear wearing a miniature graduation outfit and hat. This little gift adds to the meaning and sentimental value of your bouquet.
These flowers come in a spectrum of colors that suit just about any taste preference. If possible, choose roses that match the graduate's school colors. You might also want to buy flowers that reflect the graduate's favorite color such as pink, red, peach or yellow. A bundle of roses showcasing a rainbow of color also works very well and even a male grad might enjoy getting some roses on the big day.
Forgo traditional options and buy tropical flowers for the new high school grad. An outgoing or spunky graduate might enjoy getting a bouquet filled with exotic flowers that really stand out. Prepare a bouquet filled with exotic blooms such as orchids, hibiscus, bougainvilleas and plumeria. You can also order leis filled with tropical blooms that wrap around the graduate like a big hanging necklace.
Daisies make good gifts for a high school graduate. Choose classic white daisies for the new grad or spice it up by pairing white daisies with pink, red, yellow and peach blooms. These flowers have a sweet and simple appeal which makes them a good choice for just about any grad. Exotic African daisies display much larger blooms than many other varieties, so choose a bouquet filled with these exotic beauties if you want to showcase bold and elegant flowers.
