Floral Etiquette: A Guide to the Art of Flower Giving and Receiving

The Universal Language of Flowers

Flowers, in their myriad forms and colors, have long been a universal language of emotions, conveying messages where words often fall short. At My Global Flowers, we understand the deep significance and beauty of this language.

Our blog Flower Delivery delves into the intricacies of flower etiquette, a set of unspoken rules that guide us in the art of giving and receiving flowers and long-lasting plants. Whether you're looking to order flowers online for a special occasion or simply want to brighten someone's day, understanding flower etiquette ensures your gesture speaks volumes.

Floral Etiquette Around the World

Flower etiquette varies significantly across different cultures and countries. In some places, the color and type of flower convey specific messages, while in others, the number of flowers in a bouquet holds importance. For instance, giving white flowers in one culture might symbolize purity and innocence, while in another, it could indicate mourning.

Our network of local florists, spanning numerous countries, is well-versed in these nuances. By tapping into their expertise, we ensure that the flower arrangements we deliver perfectly match the cultural and personal sensibilities of the recipient's country.

The Role of Local Florists in Maintaining Floral Etiquette

Local florists play a pivotal role in upholding and transmitting the subtleties of flower etiquette. They are not just skilled in creating beautiful bouquets but are also knowledgeable about the floral traditions and preferences of their respective regions

Through continuous learning and interaction with customers, local florists at My Global Flowers stay attuned to the evolving trends and timeless traditions of floral giving, ensuring that each floral arrangement and fragrant flower gift they create and deliver resonates with the intended sentiment.

The Etiquette of Sending Flowers & Floral Arrangements

Sending flowers is more than just a transaction; it's an expression of emotion. The etiquette of sending flowers involves considering factors like the occasion, the relationship with the recipient, the recipient's favorite flower, and even the recipient's time zone for timely flower delivery.

Whether it's a gift basket accompanied by fresh flowers for a birthday, a single flower to express simple yet profound affection, or a lavish bouquet to celebrate an anniversary, giving flowers and more importantly choosing the right flowers ensures their prompt flower delivery to the special delivery date is key.

At My Global Flowers, we pride ourselves on offering same-day delivery options and a user-friendly datepicker widget search for all the available gifts, plants, and bouquets to send flowers thoughtfully and seamlessly to each occasion.

Flower Meanings and Popular Choices

Every flower tells a story. Roses, universally recognized for love and passion, carnations symbolizing admiration, lilies representing purity and renewal – each flower and pl has its unique language. Our blog on flower delivery explores the meanings of different types of flowers, and plants and tips on their suitability for various occasions. We delve into the symbolism and beauty of not only the well-known and most popular flowers but also those that are equally enchanting and meaningful.


Chrysanthemums, often referred to as 'mums', are symbols of joy and optimism. In some cultures, they represent longevity and fidelity. These vibrant flowers come in a range of colors, each carrying its own meaning. Red ones symbolize love and deep passion, while white ones are associated with truth and loyal love. Yellow chrysanthemums traditionally represent slighted love.


Lavender, with its enchanting fragrance and delicate purple hues, stands for serenity, grace, and calmness. It’s often associated with the magical and mystical. In the language of flowers, it can also signify devotion and love. It's a perfect choice for calming floral arrangements and is popular in both fresh and dried forms.


Sunflowers are known for their bright, large heads and sunny appearance. They symbolize adoration, loyalty, and longevity. Much like the sun they're named after, these blooms represent warmth and happiness. They are a popular choice in bouquets that aim to bring a sense of cheer and lightness.


A charming and eclectic mix of naturally occurring cut flowers of blue, yellow, red, and other colors, that grow in spring, symbolize freedom and spontaneity. They are perfect for expressing a carefree spirit and are often used in arrangements that aim to capture the essence of the countryside or natural beauty. Each wildflower adds its unique touch to a bouquet, making it truly one-of-a-kind.


Lily is an elegant purple flower associated with purity and refined beauty. Different colors of calla lilies carry different meanings: white ones suggest purity and virtue, orange blooms express passion, and pink flowers denote wealth and prosperity. Lily flowers are a popular choice in both happy occasions and solemn events, making them versatile for various events.


Exotic and graceful, symbolizing love, luxury, charm, and strength. In ancient cultures, orchids were associated with virility. Today, they are highly regarded as symbols of rare and delicate beauty. These wonderful flowers come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colors like pink, white, and orchid, each with its own unique appeal.
