5 Ways to Make Someone Happy with Flowers

Summer has breezed into the shop and its sun-sational.

Now as you know, we at The Flower Lounge are a cheery bunch at the best of times but August is something else. The fabulous fragrant whiff of the blooms, the kaleidoscope of colours, the kids are off school, there’s beach trips, holidays and family get-togethers (remember those!), weddings galore and now with the easing of the restrictions, summer feels like the happiness scale is off the chart.

We’ve always been a big deal in the happiness department (even if we say so ourselves). A bunch of blooms is always a sure-fire way to send a smile to those you care about. In fact, it’s scientifically proven (yes really!) that a bunch of blooms produces a Duchenne Smile. This is an official term for an ear-to-ear genuine grin with a twinkle in the eyes. It’s considered by psychologists as a true- blue indicator of authentic enjoyment. We always knew the amazing power of the flower! So, this August, don’t wait, spread the happiness with our top 5 ways to make someone next level happy with flowers. Prepare to think happy thoughts!


  1. The Message

Sending a personal note with your bunch of blooms is the perfect way to spread a bit of happiness. We’ll admit it, the card is just as important as the flowers. If you’re worried about writer’s block or not having the right words, don’t despair.

Quotes are always a good place to start if you’re wanting something different. Something funny or even poetic can also do the trick too but the cherry on top of every bunch of blooms is a personal heartfelt message and there’s no better person than YOU to say it!  So, before you place your order, our top tip (no matter what you want to say) is jot it down so you don’t forget! Don’t be shy either, we’ve seen it all. Nicknames and more. Our lips are sealed…


  1. The Thought

Thinking of someone special and want to make them beam? From the littlest of reasons to the most memorable ones we got the best blooms to match.

Start with the reason you’re sending flowers in the first place. Who is the lucky recipient? What’s their favourite flower? Birthday blooms? There’s a flower for every month (we pride ourselves on knowing little things like that).

Maybe it’s Congratulations, wishes for a speedy recovery or apologies (eek!). Send flowers to spark special memories by replicating their wedding bouquet for an anniversary. Choose candles in their favourite scent or sumptuous artisan chocolate that everyone adores. Whatever you need, we know that adding those extra touches will make all the difference in making their smiles really bloom.


  1. The Surprise

There’s always one person who says they don’t like surprises but let us tell you a little secret. We’ve never delivered a bunch of blooms that didn’t delight an unsuspecting recipient! Surprise flowers are simply the best – you can take our word for it.

Who doesn’t love opening their door to a big bunch of blooms bursting with gorgeous aroma? You can’t go wrong. Make someone feel loved, special and oh-so adored. So go on, surprise them and be the reason for someone’s sparkling smile!


  1. The Long Lasting

When you’re sending a special something to make someone smile, the floral world really is your oyster.  So why not opt for something a little bit different?  

If you’ve got a stylish beau or fashionista friend, dried flowers are the on-trend gift to make them smile. Guaranteed to make any home look chic and perfect for those insta-worthy shots, dried flowers are a beautiful and long-lasting gift. Practical (uber low maintenance) and oh-so dreamy they’ll look beautiful in any home for months, (heck) years on end. From muted hues to vibrant bursts, the many shapes, textures and colours of dried flowers offer oodles of stylish possibilities.  These are a special and unique way to gift someone the beauty of flowers and the bonus is that your recipient can be reminded of your lovely gesture for a long time! Talk about a smile to make their cheeks ache!


  1. The Just Because

Send flowers for the best reason of all – none!! No matter what your non-occasion, we’ve got you covered. Because it’s summer, because we are BFFs for life, because its Wednesday…

Pick yellow for friendship, red for luurve, a vibrant bunch to give someone a big floral hug.  An unexpected pick me up, a random act of kindness, there’s a batch of blooms for everyone. Sending out of the blue blooms is our favourite. Simple, unexpected things really do make all the difference, so why not bring a little joy to those you love?
