Graduation is a major milestone in a young person’s life. It means the end of one chapter or stage of life, and the entry into another phase of life. It represents the end of school – in the traditional K-12 public, parochial, or private school setting. If you’re like many families all over the country, it is also a time when family members come from near and far, just to celebrate this important and life-changing event.
As a parent or soon-to-be high school or college graduate, you may also want to have a party to thank the extended family members and friends for stopping everything to help the family recognize the graduate’s accomplishments, and celebrate the milestone. If you plan to let some of the out-of-town guests stay at your home, you may want to spruce it up a bit. There is no better way to make your home look special than with fresh cut flowers.
It doesn’t matter if the graduation ceremony is being held on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, or in the evening. At some point, you will probably want to have a special dinner or meal, or a buffet that can feed the countless people who want to drop in, and those who come to join you in celebrating this rite of passage.
When people put flowers on their dining room table, or on the serving tables and elsewhere in the house, everyone knows that they are doing so for a special occasion. That’s the message that flowers convey when they’re placed around the house as accents.
Orchids That Recognize Your Graduate
An Orchid Lei is meant to be a tribute to your son or daughter on their graduation. It lets them stand out in a special way. Choose between purple or pure white Dendrobium orchids.
An elegant wrist corsage with white Cymbidium orchids and delicate green accents is another way to honor your graduate. A graduation is just as appropriate an occasion for a corsage as a wedding or formal dance. A matching Cymbidium orchid boutonniere is equally fitting for the occasion.
Decorate the House With Orchids
Our elegant Mini Orchid Cube will look fantastic on a coffee table, an end table, or a bedside table in your guest bedrooms. Alternatively, if you’re having a large party and you’re going to seat the guests at one very long table or several smaller ones, this arrangement would make an unusual and sophisticated centerpiece. Line the cubes down the length of the table, making sure that every empty space is equal to the others.
Our Ornate Orchid Bouquet is another sophisticated, but unusual way to display Cymbidium orchid blooms. This arrangement is about twice the height of our mini orchid cube. It would look beautiful on a foyer table where your guests can see it the moment they enter your home. It is the perfect way to dress up a console table behind a sofa, or on a wall in your living room, or to make a fireplace mantel, the focus of a room.
Dress up your dining room table, or add an unexpected touch of whimsical creativity to a buffet table, or to other unadorned areas of your home with our Dendrobium Dance arrangement.
