The Essential Guide to Making a Memorable and Meaningful Airport Reunion with a Loved One by the floral experts at McNamara Florist, Indianapolis’s premier flower shop.
If your loved one who you haven’t seen for far too long is finally arriving at the airport, show them just how much you care by greeting them at the gate with a beautiful bouquet of fresh-cut flowers. There’s no easier way to make someone feel extra special, loved, and missed than with colorful blooms. Flowers not only have the ability to convey feelings and emotions that can’t be words can’t express, but they also are proven to boost moods and reduce stress. Whether you’re reuniting with your best friend, sibling, parent, or soul mate, make it more meaningful and memorable with flowers. Just keep reading to find out which flowers you should select, which colors, and more tips for creating the perfect airport reunion.
When selecting bouquets, it’s best to go on the small-to-medium size as larger bouquets may get damaged or jostled in a crowd and could make carrying luggage and other items your loved has more difficult. If you want to go big, take just a single bloom from the bouquet to present to your special person at the airport while the remainder of the bouquet awaits her arrival at home.
Red roses are the ultimate declaration of love and passion and are perfect for giving to your partner at the airport… if done on a small scale. A large, showy bouquet of red roses might suggest to passersby (and your SO) that a marriage proposal may be imminent. If this is the case – go for it! If not, though, choose a mix of florals, instead.
If you know the recipient’s favorite flower, then a bouquet of just those will be an extra thoughtful gesture.
If the flowers are for a family member, friend, or romantic partner, keep in mind certain colors and flowers express different meanings. You don’t want to send mixed messages to someone who is just a friend by giving them a bouquet of flowers symbolizing deep love, passion, and desire. Choose wisely using the below guide:
