Moving from junior high, high school, or college are major life events. A special ceremony, called graduation, takes place at the end of these major academic milestones. During these events, families and friends gather to support the grad in their recent achievement. Graduation comes with a variety of traditions, though they differ between families, or even schools. One tradition of most graduations is giving graduation flowers.
Flowers for Graduates
Giving Graduation flowers is an old tradition of these events. Parents, friends, and other family members often give gifts and flowers in an effort to show both their pride and respect for the student’s efforts. After all, junior high, high school or college graduations only happen once, and deserve to be celebrated after many years of hard work and sacrifice for their education. Flowers are typically given to the graduates after the ceremony, but some flowers such as leis, may be given before the ceremony to wear during commencement.
Flowers for Teachers, Mentors
While graduations typically revolve around the graduate, it is important to keep in mind those who helped them get to this point. Teachers, coaches, academic advisors, and mentors spent countless hours with students, teaching and assisting them in their education. Giving gifts to show appreciation to teachers and mentors is something they will always cherish and also makes their jobs worthwhile. Flowers, plants, or gift baskets are great way to express your appreciation for all their time and influence. These can be specially delivered to these individuals by our floral shop, or you can pick up the order and deliver it in person on graduation day, or the days prior to gradation.
