Trending Graduation Arrangements

 Graduation is a special time. It marks the completion of a stage of life and the beginning of a new chapter. What better gift to congratulate the graduate than flowers–a symbol of thriving and growth. Here are some ideas for great graduation arrangements for an amazing student!

School Colors

Graduation is the perfect time to show off school pride! Consider an arrangement with the recipient’s school colors. Your florist can help you find the best bunch of blooms for your loved one. Whether it’s dyed flowers or even colorful ribbon, surprise your student with some school spirit.


Ferns, succulents and bamboo plants make great graduation gifts. These sorts of plants require minimal care, which is ideal for a graduate’s new desk. In addition, green plants tend to last longer than cut flowers, allowing the recipient to have a reminder of their special day for a long time to come.


Always popular for many occasions, roses are a universal sign of love. They are a reminder that the recipient is very special to the giver and graduation is an ideal time to express that. Roses come in a large variety of hues, so consider a bouquet of mixed colors to symbolize the many choices your graduate can make in the near future.


Talk to your florist about incorporating some gifts within an arrangement. Maybe new school supplies or something useful for their new job–your local florist can personalize their arrangement for an extra special graduation gift.

Whatever you choose, your graduate will feel special with their own arrangement. You are reminding them not only of your pride in them, but also that they are going out into the world to grow and prosper–just like a flower. For more great ideas, check back with the Bloomin’ Blog.
