Whether it's showing love on an anniversary, sharing joy on someone's birthday or expressing support in times of grief, there's always a way to say it with flowers. We teamed up with Flower Delivery Hong Kong to find out how to choose flowers for every occasion

Grand Openings

To celebrate a friend or loved one’s latest venture, don't be shy—large, grand bouquets are definitely the way to go.

Whether it's a restaurant, store or office opening, choose something bright and vibrant that symbolizes a bright future, like pink lilies, orchids, birds of paradise and laceleaf to name a few. 

Anniversaries and Valentine's Day

Flowers speak the universal language of love and are always a welcome gift when it comes to anniversaries, Valentine's Day and other romantic occasions.

You can go for the classic choice of red and pink blooms—remember, you can never go wrong with roses—but if you want to do something unique for your one-in-a-million significant other, dare to be different with rare colours and unique flower species.

Just for mum
