The spring season is full of reasons to celebrate – from Mother’s Day to Father’s Day and everything in between; spring gives us many reasons to honor the ones we love.
Graduation Day is another occasion for us to give recognition to someone who has worked hard and achieved their goals. Graduation Day carries with it many customs and traditions, from throwing caps in the air to the diploma scrolls. Another prolific tradition involves the bestowing of flowers on those who have accomplished a goal – and this tradition goes back thousands of years.
In ancient Greek and Roman competitions, laurel wreaths were given to the winners. Gladioli flowers were given to victorious gladiators. Returning war heroes were showered with roses. And to this day, flowers are utilized to convey sentiments of pride, accomplishment, achievement and victory. The same floral elements used many centuries ago are still as meaningful today – laurel flowers, magnolias, gladioli and sage.
Roses carry a significance that is appropriate for graduations as well. Pink and lavender roses exhibit admiration, yellow roses recognize achievement and orange roses express pride in the recipient. Making these blooms a centerpiece for your graduation gift is a great way to not only give them a beautiful token of the day but one which carries significance.
However, if you feel that flowers may not be the best gift for every graduate on your list, Trias’ is still your one stop source for gifts – from candles to home décor; from plush animals and balloons to gourmet gift baskets -there is simply something for everyone at Trias Flowers.
