When is the right time to send flowers?

When is the right time to send flowers?

We might sound a little biased when we say “always.” However, we stand by our answer! Here are some of the most popular times to gift someone with a flower bouquet or other such arrangement.

  • Anniversary: Your anniversary is a celebration of your love! Send them a stunning bouquet at work to let them know that they are on your mind, then treat them to dinner later that night.
  • Birthday: Some people love celebrating their birthdays while others prefer to pretend it never happened. Regardless, let your loved ones know that you are delighted that they were born by sending them a floral arrangement.
  • New Baby: Bringing a child into this world is an exciting adventure, and it’s one that we believe should be celebrated. Send a themed arrangement with a balloon that congratulates the new parents on their little girl or boy.
  • Promotion: Getting that new position at work is a thrill that a flower arrangement will celebrate for weeks to come! As your loved one moves into their new office, they’ll have a stunning arrangement that will remind them of their hard work and accomplishments.
  • Graduation: Whether your grad is finishing high school, college, or their Ph.D., you can always celebrate their success with a bouquet! Bonus points if you order a custom flower arrangement with their school colors.
  • Holidays: Whether you don’t know what to get your in-laws for Christmas or your sister for hosting Thanksgiving, we believe the perfect gift is flowers. Feel free to pair this thoughtful gift with a bottle of wine or gift card to go that extra mile!
  • New Home: If your friends or family members have just moved into a new home, send them a floral arrangement to brighten up the space! It will be a wonderful congratulatory gift while doubling as some nice decor while they unpack.
  • Just Because: Everyone loves a surprise gift! Let someone know that you are thinking of them by sending a flower arrangement they aren’t expecting. Their smile will light up the whole room!

Which floral arrangement should I choose?

We thought you’d never ask! Once you’ve decided that a floral bouquet is the way to your loved one’s heart, it’s time to choose the perfect option. Here are some of our favorites for all occasions!

Rose Bouquet
Roses are most commonly tied to romance and love over any other flower. They are also considered to be a symbol of balance, hope, promises, and new beginnings.

When to choose roses: We love roses for romantic gestures and moments, including anniversaries, proposals, and a romantic partner’s birthday! These roses come in a bouquet of six, twelve, or eighteen. Regardless of how many you select, your loved one is sure to grin for hours on end.

Mix up your gift with an arrangement made from green roses, succulents, hydrangea, cymbidium orchids, green hypericum berries, and other greenery! This compact arrangement will fit anywhere your recipient would like.

When to choose evergreens: This bouquet is great for a friend or family member who could use a smile! Whether that means they need some encouragement when they are ill, or if you want to congratulate them on a new home, this is the bouquet to choose. Let the bright green lift their spirits and help them feel encouraged.

Homestead Farms
With flowers that focus on hues of green and white, anyone will love such a thoughtful arrangement! We include white roses, lilies, hypericum berries, queen Anne's lace, and stock, then wrap them all together in a beautiful, rustic fabric to tie the look together. 

When to choose Homestead Farms: This bouquet focuses on bright greens and complementary whites, meaning that the arrangement works well for either male or female recipients. Give someone a congratulations with this bouquet or wish them a speedy recovery!

Pink Cymbidiums
The pink cymbidium orchids with green accents come in a leaf-lined cube you can use again and again. With a classic floral look combined with a contemporary flair, your recipient is sure to love them!

Go ahead and take a look!

While we offer a wide variety of flower options and arrangements, there are a few that stand out as being extremely popular. The color, the scents, the longevity of the blooms—it’s no wonder that these are what our fans are ordering for their loved ones! Here are some of our favorite, popular flower types that you can order for your next occasion.



The popularity of succulents is no mystery to us! Not only are they beautiful and unique plants, but they also are some of the easiest out there to care for. Even though some succulents have very high-maintenance needs when it comes to care, most are easy to grow because of their water-storage tissues. They can survive in environments too dry for other plants.

Care: Succulents rather like the dry humidity and warm conditions found indoors, and most can adapt to less sunlight. Just be sure to put them in a fast-draining potting medium and only water again when the soil has dried out.



Peonies are famous for their extravagant, early summer blooms. These plants live for a very long time, and they require very little attention. Why do they stand out above the rest? Peonies blend well with just about any other flower. This means a floral arrangement with peonies will be lovely, long-lasting, and stunning.

Care: In order to make the most out of your time with your new peonies, make sure to cut about an inch off the stem at a diagonal. Place them in three to four inches of room temperature water. Keep an eye on the water, as peonies can get quite thirsty!



People are naturally drawn towards these bright, spiky flowers because of their vibrant color. They also tend to last much longer than other flowers; dahlias are one of the longest lasting cut flowers. Even in the colder climates, these perennials can survive. They look lovely when combined with other flowers, but they stand wonderfully on their own.

Care: Cut the bottom of the stems and strip any leaves that will sit below the water line. Any leaves under water can decay and add unnecessary bacteria to the water. Change the water every two to three days to make sure they always have something to drink!


What to Send with a Floral Arrangement?

If you aren’t sure what to send along with your stunning floral arrangement, we are here to help. Feel free to include a handwritten card to express your sentiments, or perhaps a chocolate bar to add some flavor to a visually appealing gift. Regardless of what you are looking for, we can help! We offer balloons, chocolates, candles, fragrances, and even plush animals to excite your recipient. Just let us know what we can include, and we would be happy to deliver your gift along with the floral arrangement.


There are many online sites with affordable flowers you could choose from—so why pick our team?

First, we believe in a personalized customer service experience. Every single one of our staff members is an expert when it comes to flowers and plants. We can tell what is in season and blooming beautifully, as well as what is in style. And, we can always work to fit your budget. This means that you will never get an automated response from our team, and we don’t rely on stock arrangements to meet your needs. If you simply can’t tolerate having lilies in your flower arrangement, don’t worry—we’ll make sure that’s taken care of for you. If you want a photo of your purchased arrangement before we send it out to the streets of D.C. to be delivered, we can provide that for you too. Just ask us what you need to feel at ease, and we would be happy to deliver.

Next, we support local options as much as possible. Our goal is to use locally grown produce to create the ideal farm-to-vase experience. While we can’t get all of our flowers locally year round, we certainly do our best to get our flowers from Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. This makes it less expensive for both you and us to purchase flowers, but it also allows us to do our part in supporting fellow small businesses.

Finally, we believe in value and personalization. We make sure that every penny you spend is used to create the finest arrangement with as many flowers as possible. We also guarantee that your arrangement is up to you. Looking for roses and hydrangeas together? There’s no need to skim a website for hours looking for a variation on this bouquet. Instead, call us and ask. We can prepare it for you that morning and send it to your recipient that afternoon. At Nosegay, there are no middlemen to pay before your flowers get delivered. Your arrangements will be delivered in the best condition possible to meet your exact specifications. That’s why we believe we are better than the competition.
