SCHOOLS OUT! GRADUATION FLOWERS ARE IN!
A 2023 GIFT GUIDE FOR THE GRADUATING CLASS
Here at Common Love, we celebrate and show our love through flowers. They're the gesture that keeps on giving and is perfect for any occasion. We love the joy we see on people's faces when they receive a big bunch of bright flowers. It’s more than just a gift, but it’s making a connection. One of our favourite times to give flowers is for graduating students. Students work so incredibly hard through all their exams and final year projects that it only seems fitting to reward them with a gift they'll love. With the 2023 end of the school year almost upon us, we’ve put together our gift guide for the best graduation flowers in Sydney.
WHAT IS THE GRADUATION FLOWER ETIQUETTE IN SYDNEY?
If you’ve been lucky enough to be invited to graduation, bringing something is always polite and well-received. While other gifts like chocolate or a candle can be fantastic, flowers are the perfect gift. Not to mention, they look great in photos. Turning up empty-handed can be a little awkward, so arriving with a giant bunch of locally grown flowers is the ideal way to go. What if you can't attend the graduation but still want to send flowers? Common Love is here to help! In Sydney, we offer same-day delivery if ordered before 1pm. You can have flowers delivered straight to the graduation ceremony; we can't think of a more perfect gift.
WHAT ARE GOOD GRADUATION FLOWERS?
With all flowers that you buy, you’re usually going to make a purchase based on what the recipient knows and loves. For example, if someone loves the monochrome, orange look, then Peachy Keen could be for them. Whatever flowers you choose will be totally based on what the recipient likes, but having some inspiration is always super handy. Take a look below at the best flowers for a graduation gift in the Sydney area.
SEASONAL BUTTER MILK BOUQUET
Starting out is our stunning Seasonal Butter Milk Bouquet. This bunch is filled with various tones of cream and light shades of pink that blend perfectly together. Depending on seasonality and what looks the best, this bouquet is full of Geraldton wax, lisianthus and stock. This bouquet is a fantastic option for anyone and everyone. With more of a softer and gentle palette, it delivers a classy touch.SHOP NOW
SUNFLOWERS EN MASSE
Coming up next are the traditional, classic and bright sunflowers. Sunflowers, no matter who they are for, will brighten anyone's day. We love the range of sizes and colours that sunflowers vary in throughout the year. The colours blend from radiant punchy yellows to deep, crisp oranges. Making them the perfect choice that will pop in a photo and next to any graduation gown.SHOP NOW
NEUTRAL AUSTRALIAN NATIVE BOUQUET
At Common Love, we proudly use locally sourced Australian flowers where possible, so our Neutral Australian Native Bouquet is one of our faves (shh, don’t tell!) This bunch is perfect for the person who maybe is a little more reserved and quiet. While these natives lack a punch of colour, they make up for it with their range of textures and natural beauty. The different shapes are unique and give such an exciting look and feel. What’s even better about these flowers is that they can be dried. Let your recipient know they can allow them to dry naturally and will still hold their shape with a muted colour.SHOP NOW
RED ROSE BOUQUET
Red roses are the most classic flower, and you can’t go wrong with a bunch for almost every occasion. The beautiful flowers are deep and rich in colour, bursting against their emerald green leaves. Perfect for any person who loves anything classic. Grab a dozen or more if you want to bulk up your bunch. But a single red rose is a heartfelt gesture if you're looking for the perfect graduation gift. On the other hand, if you still love the appearance of roses but want something a little less traditional than red roses, discover our Pink Rose Bouquet. These roses vary in their exquisite shades of coral pink and provide a different approach to the more traditional red roses.SHOP NOW
MIXED SEASONAL TROPICAL BOUQUET
This bunch is perfect for the graduate who is filled with brightness and loves a pop of colour. Our Mixed Seasonal Tropical Bouquet is bright, punchy and packed with contrasting tones. This bouquet stands out and creates impact with all of the organic and free flowing shapes. We promise if you arrive with this at graduation, you’ll be the class favourite.SHOP NOW
Gorgeous, bold and stunning. Rose lilies are spectacular. All in white, our bouquet of Rose Lillies is perfect for a graduation gift in Sydney. Unlike regular lilies, rose lilies don’t contain any pollen, making them an ideal choice. The scent is sweet and delicate. Rose lilies bloom forever when purchased closed, continuing to flower for 10 to 14 days.SHOP NOW
MIXED DAHLIA POM POM BOUQUET
Coming in with our final option is the most bright and beautiful Mixed Dahlia Pom Pom Bouquet. These vibrant flowers are not only packed with colour but also texture. The layers of petals seem like they go on forever and create such interest. As these flowers last 5 to 7 days, the vase life is amazing compared to more delicate flowers. These pom pom dahlias are the perfect gift for an outgoing and energetic graduate.SHOP NOW
