The language of flowers is an old and important one. You can say a thousand things with the right bouquet, like wishing someone farewell and expressing your feelings for someone. It’s even becoming popular to say thank you with flowers – so there’s something for every occasion. Some might even think all this is so confusing that they don’t know where to start.
Well, the easiest way to figure out what bouquet would be the best for a certain occasion is to do a little research. Flowers like the red rose symbolize passion. They’ve even come to symbolize love in the modern era, but not all colors of the rose mean the same thing, and there are countless other flowers out there.

There are countless flowers that are known as cheerful and happy more than they are as passionate and romantic. Here’s a list of flowers that are commonly used in thank you bouquets.
Peach roses symbolize appreciation for someone – and we can’t think of anything better to say thank you with! A bouquet of peach roses can be mixed with some yellow ones (that stand for joy and friendship) and some pink ones (that are flower language for admiration and friendship).
A whole bunch of these will not only look beautiful but say exactly the right things to whoever’s on the receiving end.
Hydrangeas are beautiful and delicate flowers that are always popular among the masses, and they mean “thank you for understanding”. If you have to thank someone for being there for you, for understanding you, and for understanding who you are, these flowers are the ideal option.
A small bouquet with these flowers mixed with some green stems and some delicate white flowers can look lovely, and be the perfect thank-you bouquet.
This flower itself doesn’t mean “thank you”, but it comes close. It means “you are a great friend”, and we can’t think of anything better to add to a thank you bouquet!
Make it Special
Flowers all have their own meaning, but don’t let the language of flowers make you lose sight of what they mean to the receiver.
If you know about someone’s favorite flower or favorite color, it’s safe to let go of the classic language a bit and lean into what they love. It can be a great way to tell someone how much they mean to you, how much you know them, and how important they are to you.
Having someone’s favorite flowers added to your bunch along with the ones that actually mean “thank you” would be the perfect combination.
Add Something Extra to the Bouquet
Who says a bouquet has to just be made of flowers? If you’re thinking about getting a bouquet for a chocolate lover, see if you can ask your florist to fit in some chocolates in the bunch. There’s nothing that will make someone feel appreciated quite like a creative present like that, and chocolates like Ferrero Rochers would fit right in with the flowers, given their packaging style. Your florist can stick the chocolates at the end of wooden sticks or some straws and fit them inside the bouquet, and even you can do that!
Put in a Little Note
Not everyone knows the language of flowers, and while they may appreciate all the thought you put into the bouquet selection, nothing beats actually saying it out loud. Once you’re done picking out the perfect bouquet, consider adding a little thank you note with it.
Many online stores might be able to accommodate this request and mail your friend or loved one the note you request, and it will last forever – unlike the roses that will only last one or two weeks with the utmost care.
Flowers have always been our go-to way of expressing emotions – romantic or otherwise, but we need to be careful about our buying decisions. Make sure you’re buying locally sourced flowers that are in season, because imported ones do more harm to the environment than good.
