Results Day is coming! Gifts To Say Well Done.


Results Day is coming! Don’t forget it’s Graduation season too. August 14th  and August 21st mean everything to thousands, around the country. The easiest and most gorgeous way to say ‘well done’ is with flowers. Do you know their favourites? Or a colour they can’t live without? Choose flowers by occasion, on our website to make finding the perfect arrangement easy.


From our Vivid Blush which comes with complimentary chocolates to a more flamboyant piece like our Seasonal Pink Hand-tied, there will be something spectacular to gift the clever clogs in your life with.


You’ve said ‘we’re proud of you’ with flowers, but why stop there? Passing exams, finishing degrees, getting a place at university - they’re all huge achievements, so celebrate in style and get some friends and family together to enjoy some quality time.


First of all, you’re going to need decoration. Go crazy. Stick a banner to the front door, blow up a few balloons and hand your guests a party popper, for the arrival of the star student. The only thing better than a party is a surprise party. Give them an event to remember. Regular balloons aren’t going to do the trick for a special occasion. Dot a balloon bouquet or two around the house, for the ultimate finishing touch. They even last a few days after the party, so they’ll be keeping the festivities going for a while.


Grab an iPod and make a playlist for the evening. This is celebration time, so nothing too mellow. Include a few from their favourite band - this is their party, after all. If you’re really in party mode, get the family involved in a few games. Make the most of your time with them, over summer, before it’s back to business as usual.


What’s a party without food? It’s summertime! Know what that means? BBQs. Everyone loves a few burgers, in the sunshine. Part cook your meat first, for super speedy BBQ’ing outside. Get the gazebo up and the chairs out and you’ll be all set to go. Weather not up to scratch? Brighten up the house with our aptly named Sunshine Hand-tied bouquet, which includes luxurious foliage and large-headed roses.


Has your star student just finished college? It’s time to raise a toast. Red or white? We’ve got it. Why not treat them to a wine gift basket? They come beautifully presented, with chocolates and a gorgeous rose plant (that colour matches with the wine) and absolutely divine Maison Fougère chocolates. If you’re lucky, they may even share with you.


Don’t forget the card. Once the balloons are gone and the food has been eaten, they’ll have your kind words as a lasting reminder of their achievements. Plus, it’ll make a refreshing read, compared to the books they’ve had their heads stuck in, for the past few months.


Is your student a big softy, at heart? Say ‘well done’ with a teddy. You’re never told old to make room for a bear in your life and with the cuties we have available, how could anyone resist? Choose from Benjamin, whose medium sized with plush dark fur or little Bramble, who’s sporting a rather fetching bow around his neck.


There you have it! The perfect summer party, to celebrate some fabulous results. There are plenty of gifts that you could buy for a student: something techy, jewellery, maybe even a holiday but what’s better than quality time and a beautiful designed bouquet?
