Most of us spend 80 percent of the day at work, and it is very clear that intimate, professional and platonic relationships need to be established to be rewarded. There is a need to preserve and respect this boundary. In particular, you need to be very careful and observe the simple flower etiquette if you are sending flowers to anyone special at work.
Flower bouquets should be beautiful, crafted as a gift for a colleague, and express emotions such as love and attention. Too fragrant flowers will not function for the composition. Don't include dried flowers in the composition. It'll look fine with a bouquet of succulents in a flower box. Look at fine rose bouquets, orange orchids, peonies, carnations. A gift card with best wishes from office staff could accompany the collective composition.
As with the scale of the presentation, a joint gift cannot be tiny for an office worker. For an anniversary or another big solemn event, large bouquets will be suitable. The man's bouquet is more laconic, the scale of color is restrained. The fabric looks impressive as a box, but you can use wrapping paper, too. You can give yourself a bouquet, wrapped with a lovely ribbon, without a wrapper. Exotic plants look original in compositions for men. They seem to stress the importance, the meaning, of the employee.
It is good to know the tastes of the one to whom the gift is intended before selecting a bouquet:
When you shouldn't send flowers!
Look at times when you probably shouldn't give business associates flowers. Flowers are rarely suitable in a business setting, "just because," especially if they take the form of flowers. Roses and many other flowers have romance, devotion, and passion connotations. As a consequence, for no apparent reason, flowers provided between co-workers, or particularly between a boss and his or her employee, can sometimes be misconstrued.
When should send Flowers!
There is no excuse not to send flowers to a business partner as long as you have an occasion where gifts are suitable. When a special day rolls around, workplaces will always chip in to give an employee or manager at present, whether it is a birthday, engagement, retirement or resignation, or the birth of a new child. Flowers can be an ideal way of giving good wishes in all these cases. Flowers can also be a very suitable gift of consolation, for when a loved one is lost by someone in the workplace.
Color selection for flowers for a colleague!
It is important to think about the implied messages that flowers of certain colors can send, especially if you intend to send a gift of roses to a working friend or manager. You'll want to steer clear of red or pink roses in general. Usually, these colors of roses represent love and affection. The exception is if someone is getting married in the workplace. Reasonable wedding roses are red, yellow, and white roses. They are a perfect way to greet a colleague a few days before he or she gets married.
You surely cannot go wrong with yellow or gold roses for a birthday or a going-away party. Yellow roses tend to have pleasant and safe meanings, making them the ideal platonic flower gift for a business associate. In the meantime, orange and gold roses generally talk of excitement, love, and appreciation, all messages that are perfect for a retirement party.
Gifting flowers to the boss!
If you share your intimate friendship with him or her, a birthday or anniversary present to the manager should always be from the side of the team. Don't make it public even if you do, as this could be seen as a desperate effort by superiors to gain publicity and favor. It can overshadow your results also. Similarly, no red roses or anything that may be misconstrued!
Sending flowers to a client!
It is a very delicate relationship in which you want to tread very cautiously and carefully. If you choose to send flowers to customers to congratulate them on personal success, approve your business proposal or grow your company, don't pick something that could be considered a way of getting personal. The perfect gift idea is a bunch of daisies or orchids coupled with a dry fruit gift pack or a traditional sweet package.
Only make sure that you don't send a particular bunch of flowers that express complex feelings and messages. You can still go ahead with potted plants, sunflowers, daisies and orchids for a better decision.
Maternity gifts to a co-worker
It is time to give flowers to the new mom if you have a co-worker who happens to be pregnant or has delivered a baby. Any mild-fragrant flower is an ideal gift with cake and chocolate. You will want to ensure that you confirm your preferences, though. You can go for sugar-free cake and dark chocolates if the new mom watches her weight. Your go-to choice could be baby books, bibs, a picture frame and baby clothes or accessories and soft toys as baby shower presents. While you can still send flowers and balloons to the hospital, when they carry all the products home, they turn out to be very inconvenient for the lady and her family. It's always safer, then, to wait a day or two and send flowers at home to a new mother.
Conveying sympathy at work
It is often easier to attend funeral services if you share a personal connection with the worker or his relatives. Give sympathy flowers to the place or at home after the services are done, if you can't do that for some reason. However, before sending the flowers, you may want to consult with the family, as certain families want individuals to donate to charitable programmers instead of flowers. You may also help prepare lunch for the tourists or run a service while you are at it. For co-workers, you can even pitch in some money for meals or utilities.
