Greeting a loved one at the airport with flowers is a classy and stylish move that will make your reunion all that more special. Besides seeing your charming face, seeing a bouquet of fresh, beautiful blooms will instantly boost your recipient’s spirits and re-energize them after a long flight. From picking out the right types and colors of flowers to transporting your bouquet to the airport, keep reading for tips on making your loved one’s homecoming perfect.
What Types of Flowers Should You Take to Greet Someone at the Airport?
When selecting bouquets, it’s best to go on the small-to-medium size as larger bouquets may get damaged or jostled in a crowd and could make carrying luggage and other items your loved has more difficult. If you want to go big, take just a single bloom from the bouquet to present to your special person at the airport while the remainder of the bouquet awaits her arrival at home.
Red roses are the ultimate declaration of love and passion and are perfect for giving to your partner at the airport… if done on a small scale. A large, showy bouquet of red roses might suggest to passersby (and your SO) that a marriage proposal may be imminent. If this is the case – go for it! If not, though, choose a mix of florals, instead.
If you know the recipient’s favorite flower, then a bouquet of just those will be an extra thoughtful gesture.
If the flowers are for a family member, friend, or romantic partner, keep in mind certain colors and flowers express different meanings. You don’t want to send mixed messages to someone who is just a friend by giving them a bouquet of flowers symbolizing deep love, passion, and desire. Choose wisely using the below guide:
