Flowers Could Ease The Way Back To School

Copyright (c) 2006-2017

It's almost the time of year that brings a mix of dread and joy for teachers, students, and parents everywhere-Back to School Time. Students and teachers around the United States will return to school in September much to their excitement, or exasperation. To help celebrate the new school year or to ease the way for those who aren't quite thrilled, send flowers!

Flowers are a fantastic way to get the new school year off to an A+ start. Although parents everywhere have just about broken the bank with new school supplies, school fees, and funding their student's lunch money account, sending flowers is an inexpensive way to let teachers and other school staff let them know you appreciate all they do or to let a student know how proud you are of him or her.

Who could you send flowers to this school year? Well, here are just a few ideas:

  • Teachers: Obviously teachers are an excellent choice to send flowers to. A simple bouquet of bright, cheerful flowers to brighten the teacher's desk is a great choice, or you could opt for a school themed arrangement complete with an apple for the teacher or some school supplies he or she could really use, like pens, pencils, and chalk. You might even consider including a gift certificate to a book store or office supply store to help the teacher stock the classroom with much needed items.

  • Students: Flowers are an excellent way to mark important school-related milestones, like the first day of your freshman student's high school years or the first day of his or her senior year. And, for students who are going away to college, a flower delivery will remind them how much you love them and how proud you are of their achievements (they can also help brighten up a drab dorm room!). Flower arrangements for students might include a small gift like a CD by their favorite musical artist, a gift certificate to a bookstore, or passes to a movie.

  • School Support Staff: The people who keep the school days running smoothly, like lunchroom staff, playground supervisors, custodians, and librarians, deserve a reminder of how important the roles they play are. There's no need to send separate flower arrangements to each of them. Instead, consider sending one arrangement to the school with a note indicating it's for all support staff members. The school can place the flowers in the break room or in the office for everyone to enjoy.


    These are just a few people who would appreciate flowers as they go back to school; there are plenty of others for whom the start of the school year is an important event. Your florist can help you create a flower arrangement for anyone who deserves a little celebration as they begin another year of hard work.
