Consider the many ways you can use flowers to decorate your graduation party. You can place flowers on buffets and sideboards, mantels, entry areas and, of course, as table centerpieces. Let your florist know what you have in mind, and he or she can create some amazing floral decorations.

When sent as a gift, flowers can communicate how proud you are of the graduate and of his/her accomplishments.

The presentation of a gift can make a big impact, and the use of flowers adds drama. Ask your florist to “wrap” your special graduation gift, such as the keys to a new car or a jewelry box, in flowers. It will surprise and delight your graduate and amaze family and friends.
