Anniversary Flowers and Their Meanings
For thousands of years, meanings have been attached to flowers by many different cultures. Some of those meanings are still considered relevant today and are associated with the years of anniversaries.
Though the most important meaning is the thought behind each floral gift, flowers selected for their traditional symbolism and historical significance can speak to the recipient in a special way.
In anniversary flowers, this tradition is taken even further by assigning particular flowers to each year of marriage. Though flower meanings vary from culture to culture.
Anniversary Flowers by Year
Don’t forget to give anniversary cards, because anniversaries are some of the most important events that we celebrate. While we mostly celebrate the anniversary of weddings, there are many other kinds of anniversaries that can be celebrated.
Get creative and allow your family and friends to celebrate with each other many significant happenings. For example, make an anniversary out of the day you bought your new home or started your job. Whatever kinds of anniversaries you decide to celebrate, just do not forget anniversary cards! Anniversary cards are one of the easiest and best ways to celebrate all of those special days each year.
Choosing an Anniversary Gift Basket
Sending an anniversary gift basket is the perfect way to celebrate a wedding anniversary and send your best wishes to the happy couple!
However, I don’t recommend taking a wedding anniversary gift basket to a party or event. It would be more appropriate to send an anniversary gift basket to the couples home where they can enjoy their special surprise.
From gourmet treats to baked goods, there are plenty of ways to find a completely new combination of treats that will leave a lasting impression.
