Family Blooms for Your Favorite Loved Ones: Choosing the Best Floral Colors

Words are wonderful for celebrating your favorite family members, but pairing them with the right color of fresh flowers? Absolutely stellar! We make sure to elevate mom on Mother’s Day and celebrate pop on Father’s Day. Grandparents also get their due with a splash of color on Grandparent’s Day. And for those who really have their act together, they send joy to siblings and chosen family members — and don’t forget a sweet gesture for your cherished pets! At Swenson & Silacci in Salinas, California, we specialize in using color symbolism to enhance those heartfelt messages with our lovely floral creations.

Pink Petals for Moms & Grandmoms

Pink flowers are total classics, and we always love seeing them in our bouquets. Whether you’re telling your mother or grandmother “I can’t thank you enough” or aiming for a heartfelt “I love you bunches,” pink is literally perfect. Carnations are great; they’re the official symbols of our mother’s never-ending love of and devotion to her kiddos. Or select pink roses (truly timeless) to show appreciation and admiration. Gorgeous peonies are also wonderful gifts, giving their recipients oodles of good fortune.

Purple Blooms for Dads & Granddads

What words spring to mind when we think of our incredible dads and grandpas? Regal and dignified, naturally! Purple flowers are just right for them, then; they exude majesty and royalty. With their connection to courage and wisdom, Irises will make him feel totally honored. Or, you can opt for lilacs, those timeless blossoms with one of the best scents ever. If you’re in the mood for something tropical, orchids are perfect, symbolizing all things noble and guaranteed to impress.

Green & Blue Flowers for Brothers & Honorary Bros

We adore how flowers can instantly create a peaceful atmosphere, especially when green or blue. These hues also bring to mind loyalty and dependability, just like our brothers (and we mean blood or honorary; both mean the world to us). We suggest surprising them with blue hydrangeas — which are all about peaceful vibes — accompanied by blue thistle, with its rugged and wild charm. Finish the arrangement with vibrant green chrysanthemums to give props to your friendship and thank them for being so trustworthy.

Peach Stems for Sisters & Honorary Sis

IYKYK: There’s something extra special about the one-of-a-kind bond you have with a sister or those besties who may as well be your sisters. Show yours she’s 100 percent amazing with pretty peach flowers; they’re totally trendy right now and sure to bring her all of the warm fuzzies. If she’s the kind of woman who loves classic blooms the most, fresh tulips are a solid choice. Surprise her with the lovely, layered ranunculus petals to show love for your incredible friendship, or go for fun alstroemeria blooms, ambassadors of friendship.

Orange & White Flowers for Your Furry Fam

Pets are such a joy to have in our lives — they’re legit adorable, super loyal, and totally have our hearts. Celebrate them in all of their furry glory with a sweet arrangement of white and orange blossoms, which channel happiness, purity, excitement, and innocence. Just double-check (or triple-check!) that the blooms you picked out are safe for pets! Ivory-colored snapdragons are a terrific choice; these tall blooms also have a unique shape. Complement them with vivid orange gerbera daisies. It’s no doubt an adorable way to thank your fur baby for all the love and joy they bring.

With these color tips from Swenson & Silacci, you’re all set to send the perfect floral message to your family. Let your flowers be a sincere expression of your feelings, making every occasion even more awesome.
